    0BD09429-3793-4B32-9FFE-993C5C1E92A5.png I know it’s only Twitter, but I though I’d share anyway. He changed his profile pick to him in a Gator uniform.

    I went onto twitter when I read this. Yup he's in a full Gator uniform. I like it!!
    BTW, Jacob Copeland posted a picture or two of himself in a Gator uniform also. I hope that's a good omen.
    GO GATORS!!!

    Sweet.

    We need Gerald.

    Copeland would post a pic of himself wearing a robe if he did that this weekend too.

    As long as it’s a Gator robe everything is copacetic.

    Gerald is from the Palmetto State and proximity to home could give Florida an advantage over Texas A&M. If he enjoys his time in Gainesville, the Gators have a chance to pull ahead of the Aggies late and land him on National Signing Day. Gerald is ranked the nation’s No. 27 overall recruit in the 247Sports composite JUCO rankings.

    Aggies play South Carolina at South Carolina in 2018 (they also play Clemson in TX), so while we have an East schedule with games against Kentucky, Georgia, Vandy and Tenn, our South Carolina game is in Gville this year. Schedule does not necessarily help us with parents

    He played the last two years in CA and is more mature than a HS kid. I think proximity to home is negligible as a factor bw us and t a&m.

    Re proximity you are correct because he no longer "fears" that. You cannot have too many DL because you want to sub and use as many fresh DL as possible. We will be facing teams with excellent OL depth.

    Interesting......

    Oddly enough, it won’t be his positive Florida vibes that will get the most attention from recruiting maniacs. It will be his thoughts on Ole Miss, the program he was originally supposed to visit before going to Florida.

    “They were trying to get me down to Ole Miss. I planned to come here [Florida] first,” explained Gerald. “The first day I was in Arkansas, I was like ‘I’m not going to go to Florida.’ I slept on it, the next morning I called them because I left Friday. I called them and said ‘Nah, I’m coming to Florida.’ … Ole Miss, a lot of stuff going on over there that I want to stay away from it.”

    It seems as if our coaches/Gainesville made an excellent impression on Dorian's mom. (Especially grantham)

    To me, his comments sound like he's signing with UF. He talks about this master plan that he and UF coaches came up with for him but he can't reveal it until he signs. If he doesn't sign w UF then why reveal the plan at all?

    Jimbo is finding it harder to recruit without that "special" care package his now ex-wife was famous for.

    What package would that be? If it has to do with bagmen, I’m sure A&M can compete with the best of them.

    It definitely has to do with men but there wasn't money involved!
