Well, I didn’t see that coming.
DE Griffis de-commits from UF
Possible a coach who isn’t UF friendly got in his ear? Anyone have any first hand knowledge?
It must be the IMG curse!
Yeah, what’s up with that? I mean I know previous staffs have soured our relationship there, but a) they are gone and b) we are winning the state back. We did very well in Lakeland last cycle. Are the coaches that jaded?
Well that blows. I liked the kid.
He seemed very much on board. I know all recruits release the same generic statement but something must have happened.
He used to play at my High School. When he was at Clay he was VERY pro UF and jumped at the chance to commit. IMG has never been pro Gator but I thought that wouldn’t matter with Josh but I was wrong. Going to talk with the admin soon and see what they know. I’m very surprised by this.
Not happy about the news either, but....
With Moon, Summerall, Chatfield, Diabate it’s not like we’re hurting with WDE/Buck guys ...and 5-star Langston is lined up for 2021. And Joseph jumping in this class I’m sure played a part.
The bag man cometh?
Just a guess but maybe the kid is rare and didn't feel right about being committed to us and taking visits to other schools. Just a thought based on his pro-UF history.
Blew up at camps and decided he wanted to take the full recruiting ride in all its glory. Sucks, but coaching staff will adapt to the situation.
He'll be back into the fold if we want him
The staff needs to move on, the kid had his chance, he chose poorly.
They'll stay on him if he's actually open to it as he states, but I doubt they'll be saving a spot for him late in the game.
Right , so we really didn’t want him..
Once a Devil always a Gator...lol.
This recruitment has so far been somewhat bizarre.
He’s all UF tweeting pics of himself as a kid in gator gear and saying “no thanks” to the suggestion of signing with bama. But he decommits the next week.
He attends IMG and plays in all the camps and there’s multiple articles describing how good he is. But he’s rated in composite ranking in 600’s. He’s clearly not flying under the radar so how can all the services be so far off?
UF will be more than fine. If he has the choice he should really stay on now.
Alabama money man showed up
Didn’t say that smart guy.
Well u kind of did ..
