    Notice I said SEC, not NCAA, while the NCAA may very well elect to permanently repeal its transfer rule, the SEC can and does reserve the right to have its own more restrictive rules, including an intra-conference transfer rule that requires the athlete to sit out a year if the athlete transfers to another SEC school. I personally am in favor of keeping this rule which is intended to reduce the amount of tampering by other schools of players already on another SEC school’s roster.

    I’d say so. He’ll be the focal point of the offense next year.

    Two years of this guy, Henderson, Bowman, and Jones playing together. We are set on offense with these guys and all the other weapons on the field. Just have to get that damn defense shored up.

    They already have a 5 star TE they don't use. That wasn't lost on Gilbert.

    The most talented incoming player at UF since _____?

    I struggle to fill in the blank. Maybe Percy, I just don’t know. Gilbert is a top-shelf talent though. Really big get.

    That is a game changer...this will also help open things up for every receiver because every defensive coordinator will focus on him.

    While also losing one defender because of the threat of EJ to run.

    Does he transfer after Spring? Or is he free to roam about the cabin now?
