    Good to see but way to early to read into rankings. Our per star average is lower than the other top classes, so they could catch us simply by adding numbers. I'm not worried about it because I think we're going to finish really strong, but there's very little meaning to any of it right now.

    FWIW, UF's class is #1 on Rivals. I suspect we'll stay that way for a while. I don't think anybody's ranking will change much unless there's suddenly a lot of decommitments.

    247 Sports finally gave UF 4 star points for Black, but they haven't yet given Hammond points as a high 3 star or whatever they are going to grade him at. That might explain why UF is a bit lower on 247 Sports than Rivals and ESPN.

    I don't look at the class rankings in the same way as in the past. Roster building has to combine the high school recruiting with the transfer recruiting. Dan Mullen is the best in the nation in transfer recruiting, but UF will likely be outside the top 5 and in the top 10 of high school recruiting when the dust settles. That won't diminish that Mullen will have done a masterful job of building his roster.

    IMO, a top-five finish is a very distinct possibility, especially if the season does go on as scheduled and we have a great year. DM and company don't always do things by standard rote in recruiting or on the field. That leads some to question the validity of the approach he has taken to rebuilding/reinventing the program. But there is no denying that we have come a very long way in a relatively short period of time, or that DM was the best option to accomplish the reclamation project he took on when he came back to G'ville. We aren't all the way "back" just yet, but you can see "back" from where we currently reside.

    Those who didn't think CDM was a sexy hire can hit the road IMO. I'm so glad, Stricklin chose CDM over Frost and Chip.

    Stewart Reese a prime example. Brings so much flexibility to our O-line the next time the Gators take the field. SEC starting experience at the OT position is the perfect example of bringing in a key transfer. As compared to Mac's horrible transfers ala Mason Halter. I will never forget when he was blown up by the FSU safety that was half of his size.

    At the worst, Reese would be LG. And that would bode well for our O line when we ever take the football field again, because that means Gouraige took the leap to starting LT and Stone is playing in his more nature RT spot. Again speaking volumes of Mullen's roster management.

    I think it will be (left to right) Reese, Gouraige, Heggie, White, Forsythe with Delance being first off the bench.
    But I could also see (L to R) Reese, White, Heggie, Delance, Forsythe with Gouraige first off the bench if Delance is healthy.

    Delance will be fully recovered from a leg injury that impeded his play last year. Will be in rotation to give our guys rest. King Rich may be our best OL and OT. Better than Stone protecting against speed rushers. I think White may be coming off the bench in rotation.

    That's kind of what I said by 2 of my 3 options having him at LT or LG in the starting lineup at the beginning of the season, no?
