    What Pitts did last year shows we know how to utilize a TE

    Shortly after DM was hired, he said in an interview that the TE position was the most important position on the team.

    Between that comment and Pitts highlights, not sure why any top TE would go anywhere else.

    welcome to the gator nation!

    IMO it’s Dan Mullen’s best 2 recruits in his head coaching career. Bowman and Gilbert. Considered by many to be the top recruit at there position. This offense is going to be excellent.

    You are right! Based on results, the DBU monkier has left the room-they left so quick I thought I saw a shoe on the field. :rolleyes:o_O

    Lotta time to sure things up - me likey.;) I take everything back I said about Mullen needing to recruit better. I bow in reverence.

    Go Gators.:D

    Kids the top rated tight end in 247 history and in the 113th all time of any recruit since they’ve been grading kids. That’s stout as hell

    Great gets! Good job coaches. I D will be improved a bit imo and the O will be a grinding machine.

    Reading some of the comments from LSU fans, they really feel he bailed on the team mid-season. Has to be a back story behind the reason why he left. Would be interesting to know it.
    Either way, looks like a great pickup for the Gators!

    I’m super excited about our O next year. Lots of weapons. If we can get the D better, we might be dangerous.
