    Yea i misread em. Bogle was going to possibly have to grayshirt at Bama had he went.

    Would been like Jarez Parks back in 2017 if you can remember. Came down to us and Bama and he goes to Bama KNOWING he would have to grayshirt and hasn't made a dent yet going into his grayshirt sophomore year

    Yep. A kid who is last in line at bama ends up getting valuable PT here at UF. Hoping that starts to change here shortly.

    what ever happened to parks?

    Now or never for him....just to see SNAPS

    "Since being on campus, Parks hasn’t made much of an impact on the field, but that could be changing in the near future with the departures of Terrell Lewis and Anfernee Jennings at outside linebacker.

    Parks will face stiff competition from a foursome of freshman, which includes Will Anderson, Chris Braswell, Drew Sanders and Quandarrius Robinson, for reps, but his two years in Alabama’s system could help him earn more opportunities if he can continue to develop."

    Sounds like Mr Parks better play his
    chips now cause he won’t see another better chance, at BAMA.

    I don’t think we get to 27, we never get as many as we think do we?

    You can look at it that way or recognize that he played well last year even undersized. Playing well seems a better criteria than anything else.

    Right. Not saying he won't turn the corner but if he doesn't do it THIS year....he's cooked.

    You know how it goes...we think we only have 6 slots left but by the time NSD rolls around, a few will probably seek refuge elsewhere. 26-27 seems to be the number. By this time next month, Palmetto will have sorted how we move forward with our board. Seems like this time next month, we'll know where the following are going:

    Taylor
    Marshall
    Collier
    Watson
    Wiggins
    Scooby Williams
    Gilliam

    Are going. Still no time line for Langston, Sorey, Arnold, Harvey on when they wanna commit

    I would be stunned if we don't use another initial counter or two on transfer portal kids, which will limit the size of the recruiting class

    There were reports he was getting destroyed by the FR OL in practices and wasn't pulling his weight. Decided to take his ball elsewhere.

    It would be wild if he hardly sees the field but still gets drafted.

    Maybe he doesn't know that Ft. Lauderdale is part of New York?

    I mean it turned out great for us because the guy is good, but the fact still remains we only got him because bama was full

    Yea Bogle was ok. Kinda just ran around last year and wasn't sure of himself, as expected.
