    UF only signed 2 DL in the '18 class (Chatfield and Langham) but signed 4 last year (Bogle, Diabate, Summerall, Humphries). The problem is that only Humphries is an inside guy. We did load up on big DL in the 2017 class and all those guys should be back next year (Slaton, Campbell, Conliffe, Carter). Conliffe and Carter should be here 2 more years but it's possible Campbell leaves early if he has a good year. Who knows what's up with Slaton - he really played well against UK. On Davis' pick in the Red Zone Slaton shed 2 blockers to get pressure on the QB and he also plugged up the middle on UK's critical 4th-and-1 attempt in the 4th quarter. I'm guessing his minutes pick up moving forward.

    We definitely we need some big DL in this class though...like Dexter!

    There was a big SDE from georgia(?) leaning to Bama who might be in play. I think.

    Like I said, one.
    Need 4 big-body talented guys. Five would be just fine.

    Never forget the lesson an all time Gator great taught us, SEC is a LOS league.

    I think you may be overthinking the red X, it doesn't reflect degree or scope of the "disagreement". Maybe he simply knew at that moment in time things were ok.
    But you are wrong if you think he has no clue as to the Highlander football program or Dexter. That I do know.
    I will add, anybody that follows recruiting knows that what you type may be right when you started the post and wrong by the time you finish. It's the nature of the beast in dealing with these kids.

    I can’t recall him posting here unless he had a different name.

    I don’t see him chiming in. All MDF did was report what others on other sites have said as recent as just a few hours ago. MDF could be wrong but he is chiming or giving info. I would love to hear some positive chime the other way but we don’t. We see profile of recruit change and see a bacon cross.

    All you have to do is click on his profile to see he has over 5,000 posts....and many have been about Gervon. I know I read this week he posted Dexter would be at their Homecoming dance instead of the games this weekend.
    He has ties into the Highlander program. That is a simple fact. It doesn't mean he is a sage that can predict every recruiting turn, nor has he ever insinuated as such. But he can give accurate snapshots at any given time. You can certainly choose to ignore the info, heck there is a block option available. But if you want "feet on the ground" so to speak, you have it.

    I am not overestimating it, I think it's much more instructive to engage on a message board if you have different news or have heard something contradictory than to disagree with a button. I heard what I heard, disagreeing with that doesn't offer much to the conversation.

    Agree, we need all the big boys we can get. Can't compete in this league without talented beef on both lines.

    Maybe on insider board and that is why I’m not reading any posts.

    Tend to agree with MDF on this one. Love to hear what the lw guy has to say. I’ll go back and review to see if he’s posted in this thread. Like I said maybe on insider board but haven’t seen him here.

    Yep, insider, so again since doesn’t post here not sure what the evidence is. I’ll go with MDF on this one. There are others that have detailed what MDF did.

    That's certainly your prerogative, I'm quite certain it won't bother him. I'm sure those others have comparable interaction with Dexter.

    I hate these "who really knows" threads. If Gervon Dexter doesn't know where he's going to play next year, I doubt anyone else does. Best way to get him to sign for the good guys is to play better on the field and to beat UGA. Might not hurt that Kyree Campbell is one of our leading tacklers.
