    Does anybody have any insider info or predictions for these two? This seems like it would be a HELL of a package deal. Especially how our D-Line is already looking for this class.

    There's nothing definitive. Any of the three programs would take them as a package deal. The only advantage that UF has is their visit for FNL and the BBQ that they both enjoyed. I'd be surprised if they didn't end up at Bama together or get split between Bama and UGA.

    Or split between UGA and UF as they were partially split before between Bama and UGA I think it's gonna be interesting to watch it play out.

    Also heard Qua’s dad is a huge gator fan. He said his sons decision is up to him but he made sure to be here when he visited UF.

    Qua's dad is a huge UF fan and came to FNL. Word is Qua is more UF and Smith is more Bama.

    I think the definition of that is that one of them told you directly.

    Draw your own conclusions.


    Lot can happen though. Bad losses. Scandals.

    Keep the faith.

    Adding nobody else except these 2 and cormani takes us to 287 points and one hell of a defensive class. Most likely a top 5 class

    Ummmmm, no. That would not be a podcast I’d have any confidence in. I’ve tried listening a few times…..it’s always borderline unbearable .
    Edit: That’s not to say the info isn’t accurate, or you posting the link isn’t appreciated.

    No need to take our opinions for facts. Check it out sometime. He offers a podcast almost every day.

    Yeah, I watch, I prefer Gators Breakdown but I listen because he is on everyday. He has a recruiting guru from SI on quite a bit whom follows recruiting and has been offering alot of detail about UF recruitment of Smith and Russau.
