    Will be visiting UF again this coming weekend. Fresh off his decommitment from miami and his commitment to uga, I have a sneaky suspicion he may commit to us.

    This will be his 4th or 5th visit to Gainesville. We offered him on Christmas eve and he thought that was a great present. Our offer came much earlier than fsu's and just after Miami.

    Regardless of what transpires this weekend there's a lot of time left for Rambo to switch schools 74 more times.

    I took it upon myself to send him the following tweet:

    com·mit·ment
    kəˈmitmənt/
    noun
    1. 1.
      the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc.
      "the company's commitment to quality"
      synonyms: dedication, devotion, allegiance, loyalty, faithfulness, fidelity
      "her commitment to her students"
    2. 2.
      an engagement or obligation that restricts freedom of action.
      "business commitments"
      synonyms: responsibility, obligation, duty, tie, liability; More
    J/k...I would never tweet him that. I posted it on his facebook.

    He'd be a huge pickup for us.

    Let him play the game as long as we are the one constant in his many final 5 lists from here to signing day. Who knows if it could be his last chance to shine? Who would have thought during his recruitment that Randy Russell would not play a single down for UF?

    Might want to re-think posting this on his Facebook page. The last thing that today's youth want is, "...restricts freedom of action."
    They want the limelight... they want the freedom, etc.
    That is why Mullen wisely says to all of the players that he is recruiting,
    "Hey, take your visits, enjoy your time and your travels... this will allow you to make a good decision based upon comparison with us with other schools and coaches."

    This sounds like Webster's from 1975. Today's definition would say a hope or intended decision based on ever expected entitlement with conditions that I get something in return because of my ever changing feelings.

    I hear ya. I was kidding about posting it anywhere but in my original post. I thought it'd be funny to say I'm posting this to his FB, Instagram, Tinder, Plenty of Fish and other social media sites these kids are on these days.

    The very term Commitment is a misnomer for intentions such as these.

    Commitments in fact, remain stable, but intentions can vary a lot from day to day as things change in life, in the local environment, in the world, and in the very universe itself.

    There are always a couple such kids each year who waffle from side to side regularly. Some continue to waffle even after they sign an LOI transferring rather rapidly.

    I hope so but his recent comments don't sound promising.

    “Georgia is totally different than Florida,” Hunter said. “I can actually say that because I have seen that now. I can separate them now because I have actually seen Georgia with my own eyes.

    “To be honest, I am not going to lie when I say that Georgia fits me more. … No offense toward Florida but [Georgia] fits me. I have seen Florida a lot, but after seeing Georgia I see now that it really kind of does fit me.”

    You're right. That's down right dismal.

    That's not what you're supposed to say. You were suppose to reassure me you're hearing something else much more positive and this kid just says things :)

    Dude, nothing I can say trumps what you posted. It's pretty disheartening. I like Hunter.
