    I think your questions about Cox are legit, him coming into the fold this year would have been huge. Even the last four games would be a huge pick up for us so guessing we are not going to hear anything until it is almost end of season.

    I guess my only question is since we keep hearing that he would have to pass through 2 hurdles, one being the NCAA and the other the SEC, do we even know if he has cleared the first hurdle?

    The process doesn't seem to be transparent at all; we never seem to know until the final hurdle is completely cleared. Hope he gets in for our last four games (FSU, SEC Championship, and two playoff games) and then redshirts. ;)

    I don’t know why but I’m becoming less and less optimistic on Taylor and Marshall.

    You & me both. I was waaay high at the beginning of the year but the more we have to wait (& we're gonna have to wait) just makes me uneasy especially if/when Bama starts pushing for Marshall

    Yea we did get Gervon last year but booooy they was trolling us hard with his ranking last year up until the final rankings came out lol. It would be ideal to get Taylor and/or Marshall NOW if we could and let them help recruit for us too

    They'd probably just drop them to 4 stars by NSD if they did commit. :rolleyes:

    We say that but it does happen and i sense it'll happen with Marshall and Taylor.

    On the flipside, Arian Smith, the WR who going to UGA, was the 58th ranked player but had like 25 catches last year for 419 yards? How?!???!

    Of course they would. Our recruits go the opposite ranking because they didn't commit to Bama, UGA, or LSU. Majority of those recruiting services cater to fan bases who are willing to spend their hard earned dollars for infos about potential recruits.

    Preach pastor!!!!!!

    Only recruit last season they COULDN'T deny a legit bump to was Tre'vez Johnson and THAT took the Clemson offer late in the game to do that.

    November 15th Clemson offered and he was in the 800's....when the December rankings came a month later he was in the 200's.

    Clemson bump.

    Meanwhile Dexter got slow played up the rankings all year when it was obvious he was an elite of the elite prospect with the decision makers saying that he didn't have football knowledge, he was raw, they needed to see it on the field, they needed him to show it in camps more, and finally that they need to see it against the elite in the all star game. Of course the guys who had reached their ceiling kept their inflated rating all year long.

    Brian Bresee played against kids who looked like middle schoolers yet never had the "we need to see him do it against elite players" question mark (he kinda legit tho lol)

    True. Bresee proved in camps he was a great player. However, when it comes down to it, I really don't believe that Bresee has the upside to be a No. 1 draft choice like the recruiting services said in comparison to Dexter.

    Im not gonna hold you (slang for im not gonna lie to you lol) but, and this is NOT Gator homer, but Gervon just LOOKS and plays like someone you KNOW isn't gonna be a bust. Like I'd be SHOCKED if by this time come 2023, he's maxed out at Leon Orr's level. Like SHOCKED wouldn't be the word. I know a lot of people say Calais Campbell but I can see Kevin Carter if he wanted to be a full time SSDE.

    I have a VIP sub on the 247 board. And the insiders Blake Alderman and Steve Wiltfong both say Florida leads for Marshall/Taylor...but they will wait until ESD to make a commitment
