    We are one of 4 finalists, but looks like it's a longshot. Here's what was said about us.

    Florida

    Leigh visited twice during the pandemic, once in the spring and again for the LSU game during the fall.

    “Like LSU I feel there is opportunity there,” Leigh said in October. “They don’t have a lot of guys right now. I’ve been watching their games.”

    ***

    “Coach John I really like him,” Laura said late in the fall. “He doesn’t beat around the bush.

    ”Oklahoma and Florida have a really good history of producing offensive linemen,” she added.

    ***

    “Florida is interesting because they were not in his top five,” Laura told 247Sports. “I did let them know they were No. 6 and they were very nice about it. They said if we are No. 6 can we stay No. 6 and Tristan said yes. As we kind of revisited it, Florida has a lot of opportunities for Tristan. Florida and LSU have the least amount of offensive tackles that are currently there or will be there next year. That leaves a lot of opportunities. The other thing about Florida, they’re a Top10 academic school as well as a football school and that’s the only one I know of.

    We probably won’t get Arnold too, just don’t see it happening.

    I do sometimes wonder if being top ten in academics is a burden to kids who can’t spell cat.

    I hate the vibe I get from the way kids say we recruit them. The things they say are said to them. That type shit. “Can we stay number 6 then “. That sort of shit. I maintain recruiting can’t be any different that picking women up. Can u ever imagine saying something like that to a woman u had previously planned to take home

    And we were the only one of the 4 where the head coach wasn't mentioned. They said they liked Hevesy, but never mentioned Mullen. The other 3 finalists, they had great things to say about the head coaches. I hope DM is just as active with these kids as his position coaches are.

    Zero chance. Look at his tweets during the Cotton Bowl.

    I would not get my hopes up but that last line there by the mother makes me feel like we could be in for a surprise.

    Just always assume with this staff, if it’s an elite recruit who isn’t already in our backyard and/or didn’t grow up wanting to be a Gator, we aren’t getting them.
