    Just to clarify, is he gone or possibly back when things get rolling again? UF is such an opportunity for a gifted Tackle.

    So that puts him on campus for 6-8 weeks tops? If you don't think this is on the player...

    Yeah he was on campus for roughly 6 weeks prior to the outbreak. So he has likely spent more time at home that at UF. It will be interesting to see if he is forced to sit out or not.

    Anything that I want to post on a public message board? No, thank you.

    Which specifics to which you are privy would you like to share?

    He will get cleared but Brenton Cox sat an entire year.

    Shorter probably will sit.

    Lingard will probably sit.

    it just doesn’t make sense. We need to change something because if we keep doing the same things and getting the same result.....Stricklin and someone gotta ask some questions. Maybe they are but if we don’t see Shorter and Lingard get cleared then somebody has to change something. Hoping UF officials are doing something different and getting ahead of this.

    It appears from his social media postings that the young man has some issues in his life, either his own or someone close to him. Perhaps it’s a better idea to let this water run under the bridge.

    Perhaps fda92045 would like to explain the disagree emoji rather than dropping some bacon then running away and hiding!:mad:

    Kid has a lot of talent but has some issues he must overcome to ever meet his potential. I could see him playing at the next level and I can see him dropping out of school and cooking burgers. Perhaps in this case, his family felt he needed to be close to home and I actually agree with them.

    Grimes didn't sit, Jefferson didn't sit.....some of the guys that left UF did sit. I agree it doesn't often make sense, really hoping they pass the measure just giving everyone one free transfer

    Heard Miami mentioned, didn’t realize he committed. Seems kind of weak but so it goes.

    Entered portal and then with Miami the next day. Obviously in the works with Mom or HS coaches speaking with UM staff before entering the portal. However, kid needs to be close to his home for brain chemistry. Think he was lonely and depressed while at UF.

    Someone on facebook is claiming that Walker is saying that the reason he left UF wasn't racial related, but that he didn't feel that he was going to start in 2020.
