    Year after year the sky is falling and the last two coaches sucked yet pulled classes together in the end. Sure it would be nice to get a few top guys and get the ball rolling but after this long of futility on offense, I fully expect a wait and see approach from some guys. We look good and we get big commits during the season. 4-8 with a terrible offense and it’ll be tough recruiting. I fully expect to see a vastly improved team.8,9,10 wins and we get a couple flips and everyone’s happy. 5,67 and we lose a flip or two . I think that’s where we are right now

    Something huge has to happen soon or we finish outside the top 20? I'm generally not a gambler, but care to make a wager?

    Did you see CWT just got a 4 star DE? I won't be far off if things don't change. Not much difference between. #18 class and a #21 class. Florida should have top 10 classes every year.

    I'm not liking the situation with missing on some recent guys like Pickering, but Trey Sanders committing would go a long way toward correcting the trend. Or maybe we'll just hold out hope for big time flips at games this fall. If we're putting everything into that, we better put one hell of a product on the field.

    So much doom and gloom with no reason. We dont need big names in June, we simply need them in dec and feb. Sanders noncommittment doesn't mean crap. Unless you know the guy, him waiting to pull the trigger doesn't change our chances at all. But go ahead and try to attempt the negative snowball.

    After visiting OSU, PSU TE Billingsley named UF/Bama his leaders. He ran a 4.6 40 at the most recent camp.

    Yeah, It would be ironic if UF got Billingsley and Rae and lost Zipperer. I believe UF will get at least one of the 3.

    We do need commitments now. June is over, so we can hope for July. Your underestimating the significance of the early signing period.

    With a coach that has been in the seat for a while being slow with commits in July is no biggie but with a new coach it is a big deal.

    For the record, Mullen will be an excellent coach. I think he gets 8-9 wins out of this team. He'll be here a long time. Just hope kids and parents see it like many of us do. Guys a winner!!

    I think Zipperer is our only chance in that group. I'm guessing Rae stays out west (he's 100% CB'd to UCLA) and Billingsley to Alabama (93% CB'd). Zipperer is playing games w/ his recruitment. I was hoping he'd jump in the class asap. I hope getting Krull didn't sour any of them. Again, we brought in a Plan B just a couple of weeks ago (Pierce). So, I'm hoping we get Zipperer and call it a day (plus he's a Florida kid and we need to re-establish ourselves in-state).

    That's exactly right. Last year 75% of D1 signings happened in December and that trend is expected to continue.

    We need to have 18 or more sign in December or we're in the same boat we were in this last cycle: working to fill the remainder of the class vs. working on the 2020 class (like UGA and many other programs were doing after they signed 20+ in December).

    My current leans, projections have one 5 star and 9-10 4 stars joining the class. My biggest concern right now is DL. I would love to see some help there.
