    Does this set a record for quickest turnaround from commitment to hitting the practice field? What are we talking half a day?

    I wonder if he called the coaches from the car to say "packed my car in the middle of the night I'm on my way please get my locker ready. We can worry a dorm room after practice." :)

    Agree wholeheartedly on this. Mullens system is predicated on being able to move the ball in the box when the numbers favor such. This oline hasn’t gotten this done effectively. Thankfully, KT has been a wizard in the passing game. CDM knows we need some quality heft up front and is getting us there.

    I heard the water boy mentioned the OL needed some extra punch.

    Knew Josh’s grandpa Mike from when I used to go to Premier in Tallahassee. Met his brother Parker on several occasions. Wish we could have gotten Parker to come as a grad transfer.

    Hey Mike, if you read this, I guess I finally will get to hear you cheer “GO GATORS”!!!

    To me this is perfect.
    Needed OL- from UGA. Check.
    Local guy- from North Florida. Back in the 90s (and 80s) our teams had a plethora of guys from North Florida. IMO these guys should be the foundation of the team. (Florida guys.)
    National Merit Scholar. Check. WOW!!
    Business minded. Check. Meaning- he's ready to get to work. Practicing already.

    From guys like this come titles. I don't care what the recruiting rankings say- this is how you build championship winning teams.
    Local, intelligent, hard-working guys.

    Great get!!

    Not to be a buzz kill, but 10 teams in that same ranking have a higher talent average. Teams like UGA have 14 commits, but an average of 94+ while UF has 23 commits at 89.98. UGA is #8, but clearly stock piling higher rated talent. Notice, I didn’t say better players. I’m personally not a “star” guy, however I wanted to keep perspective on the rankings.

    "Not to be a buzz kill" + "I want to keep perspective" = You're a buzz kill.

    Let's see how things pan out. Other teams' average ranking will level down, and ours might end up higher when it's all said and done.

    “Notice, I didn’t say better players. I’m personally not a “star” guy” Cherry pick comments much? There’s yin and yang to that post.

    One post of realism doesn’t make me a buzzkill. I’m also the same guy that in this thread was sunshine pumping the size of the line being recruited and that I withhold my opinions of a class until it’s signed. If you go back and read it again, you’ll also notice that I stated outright I’m not a star i.e. ratings guy. I like to see the product before I buy. Go Gators!

    Shhhhh! :)

    I get your point, but if we finish strong, I think we could end up top 5.

    There’s no doubt this class is rising and CDM and staff are proving to be really good closers. They did the same last year.

    Crazy how quick that turnaround was. But hey he gets to get in early and start practicing. I look forward to seeing him in the future he will be a good one for us.
