    I put up my commitment watch the other day but can't seem to find it. It seems like the writers take my info and copy It!

    1. Chester Kimbrough, 4-star cornerback, Warren Eastern High School (New Orleans)
    The Gators hosted Chester Kimbrough last weekend and made a strong impression on the New Orleans prospect. He called Florida his leader after attending the spring game and said the football program’s reputation as Defensive Back U appeals to him. Kimbrough plans to visit Georgia, Michigan and Mississippi State soon, but Florida is in the driver’s seat now.

    2. Derick Hunter, 4-star defensive end, Dunbar High School (Fort Myers, Fla.)
    Derick Hunter has been a regular at Florida in recent months, making four trips to Gainesville since late February. He last visited for the spring game and plans to check out Georgia this weekend. Florida pulled even with the Bulldogsafter Hunter watched Mullen’s first two spring practices and the Gators appear to have the edge heading into his first trip to UGA.

    43. Kaiir Elam, 4-star cornerback, The Benjamin School (North Palm Beach, Fla.)
    The Gators need to sign multiple cornerbacks and their top target is Kaiir Elam, whose uncle is former Florida and NFL safety Matt Elam. His father, Abram “Abe” Elam, also played in the NFL. All three were together at Florida on March 28 as the top-150 recruit toured the campus and met with the coaches. The Gators are considered the team to beat in Elam’s recruitment, though he has yet to name leaders or set a decision timeline

    All of these kids are beasts

    Don't forget, Schwartz thinks of Florida as his dream school.
    If I only had a nickle.

    That will get me started! LOL
    I've been laying low on recruiting for awhile. I'm enjoying Gator baseball far too much.

    If only UF were good in track, I’m sure Schwartz would have joined UF. The powerhouse Auburn track program ....

    Kid should have run track at UF. Holloway was a great HS WR in Virginia as well, but an even better track athlete at UF. Think UF even got a sprinter from Japan, Sami Brown, to join team last year. UF wins track and field championships. Not sure what Schwartz was thinking????

    Notarious, you posted this on the 19 of April, and now it's May 1st, and, while 4* lb Hopper did commit, none of the kids you noted as being on watch did, in fact, Hunter practically said the Georgia has always been his Dream School (kiddin here), but he was very positive about about the Smart Dogs.

    Trust, I never thought that Schwartz could play football in the SEC, and he is so very much better at Track, and he isn't playing football at Auburn, now would he have at Florida (unlike Demps who was an excellent RB), he would only be on the Track Team, like Holloway (who's actually a far better receiver than Schwartz if you look at his film).

    Off topic a bit...Kaiir Elam looks just like Paul Robinette from the old Law and Order early 90's. Just like him...

    Is there any school Hunter doesn't love?

    It's probably safer to make predictions with him on where he visits and how often. From that criteria we are in good shape, but of course that means little with impressionable teenagers.
