    I think we are definitely in the running for some if these guys. I just think it's more realistic that we finish 2nd for the 3 you mentioned.

    Im not inside guy, so attempting to provide odds on the Gators chances of getting LOI signature for certain recruits would be folly on my part.

    I have concerns about Evans and the type of energy he might bring into the locker room. My own experience as a manager, with oversight responsibility for over 100 employees and Supervisors, is that all it takes is just one bad apple to ruin it for everyone else and ultimately undermine chemistry. So I tend to be a bit on the conservative side when it comes to taking chances on established problematic individuals. From a football standpoint, I feel if the Gators can get their OL situation corrected, I'm good with who the Gators already got at RB on the roster, with a potential addition of a Gibbs or Williams for this current recruiting cycle.

    Would have preferred the Gators got Avantae's last OV, but my understanding is UGA has it now? Avantae at this point would be icing on the cake for the Gators.....particularly at the Safety position!

    I keep getting a Pouncey vibe, with Van Pran talent wise, and would really like to see this guy in a Gator uniform at the center position.........

    Cautious optimism, with healthy dose of skepticism on the UGa flip in particular. Not undoable, but one out of three wouldn't disappoint me. Two out of three would be cause for celebration. All three would be a shock.

    What is the basis for any continued optimism with Tae? That is not rhetorical - I want to know what I am missing?

    I believe he has two kids and has stated he wants to be close to them for one thing.

    Steve Wiltfong and many others CB’d him here in early January. Wiltfong has a 95% success rate on predictions this cycle.

    Two kids? Put on the glove Tae.

    You are about to get robbed of your future wealth by those baby mamas.

    2 kids by the age of 18?? Is that a typo?

    Making condom jokes and baby mama taking your money jokes is fun and all but I worry for the kids.

    Hope they have good parents and grandparents to help out with the little ones.

    Kinda doubt it but I guess it's possible. Just based on what I've seen, read and heard. Nothing more.

    No reason to assume he can’t /won’t handle his business. No it’s not an ideal situation but we quite frankly don’t have enough info to sit in judgement

    What info do we need? How many hours are there in a day to devote to 2 babies, a college education, and SEC football? The guy is entertaining the idea of leaving the state. I dont think we should judge him, best probably just say Go Gators!

    Who's judging?
    Are you somehow averse to people hoping the best for a potential situation. 2 kiddos by the age of 19 is a tough spot for all involved.

    Having kids, especially a second (not a mistake) that you cannot feed, keep safe and provide adequate medical care is purely a selfish act by the daddy and mama.

    Period.

    I'll be the unpopular one and say we can do without Evans. He might be a great player but at what cost? His decision making is really shaky.
