    Was the opposite for me. Just got back from running errands, turned on the TV and there he was standing with his family behind all those hats. I did not feel the certainty that many felt the last few days but something about his body language said Gator before he said a word.

    For perspective on how big a commit this is for us, he’s the second highest ranked prospect in our class, between Dexter and Wingo, at arguably our greatest position of need. Would’ve been the headliner in either of the last two classes. HUGE GET!!

    The staff that can't recruit is absolutely killing it.

    I REALLLLY hope Manuel qualifies because all from what I heard of when he was at Vanguard....he was shouldn't be close to being eligible. He's the one that can be Demarcus Robinson like skills wise

    Score one for Billy G. Hope everybody gets off his back now. He's getting the kind of WRs he wants. Didn't do a bad job his first time at UF. There was never a reason to doubt him.

    Indications are that his academics have improved significantly. Getting out of that environment was the best thing for him. Let's see what happens in February. If he gets to sign, we'll still have to wait till summer. Henderson is an insurance policy and then some. He has a lot of the same skills and much better speed.

    Xs personality seems to be polar opposite his brothers. CJ was so quiet, reserved, etc....(maybe thats the WR in X and the CB in CJ) LOL

    Happy to eat crow. Thought he really didn't publicly show any more interest to Florida over anyone else especially given his family ties. With CJ leaving I thought it would be even easier for him to go elsewhere. Even after the recent crystal balls I refused to get my hopes up after so many smokescreens in the past. Better to be pleasantly surprised than dejected. Awesome class

    I feel so much better about WR in this class. Fraziars looked good in his All Star game, Hendo committed, possibly getting Shorter as a transfer. Plus Grimes returning and possibly Toney. Manuel qualifying would just be gravy...hope he does for his sake but it’s not imperative anymore IMO. I was flat wrong about how this was shaping up for Billy G.

    With Lingard in the fold if we can get 1 RB for 2020 class, this is about as talented and balanced we’ve had from a class since Meyer was here.
