    Gators eye final pieces to ’19 class
    Graham Hall Gvl Sun
    Now, after a nearly month-long dead period that prohibited coaches from in-person contact with prospective student-athletes, the Gators will begin the final stretch of Dan Mullen’s first full recruiting cycle in Gainesville by hosting six official visitors over the weekend.

    After adding Chris Steele to the list of early enrollees on Jan. 5, the Gators are in position to land another top-tier defensive back. Kaiir Elam, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound cornerback out of The Benjamin School in North Palm Beach, will give the Gators an official visit Saturday, as he looks to narrow his list before signing.

    Mullen and Co. initially believed they’d have to fend off just Georgia — no small task, but not an inconceivable one — for Elam’s signature, but the Mario Cristobal-led Ducks have picked up their recruitment of Elam after failing to keep Steele on the West Coast.

    Not sure why Cristobal is a draw. I did not think his team was that impressive.

    Understand, but Elam is from North Palm Beach.

    I don’t mean Elam, just the talent from the west coast all going to Oregon. Doubt they get Elam to go

    They were boring and not at all creative on offense. The lure of Cristobal will fall off soon... To bad it'll take these kids a couple of years to figure it out.

    Anyone know the legitimacy to the online rumor about Emory Jones?

    Not even a rumor. A purposeful fabrication of the truth by a fan of another team that has no life

    I would be more worried about Elam to georgia past two cycles but there's a lot of negatives to talk about if I were recruiting him to UF or advising him. I will say that if pure PT and position need were his hot buttons georgia hasn't recruited DB well this cycle. But knowing we are playing often 5 DBs he has to believe he will be one that sees the field often.

    The stupid vol created site said Emory had enter his name in the Transfer portal. Totally false. Deliberately so.
