    21 ESD signers
    22 Pouncey
    23 Lingard
    24 Xavier Henderson
    25 Justin Shorter

    UF can take 29

    Clayton
    Van Pran
    Williams
    Beckwith
    Umanmeilen
    Britt
    Manuel

    There is talk that Shorter will wait to enroll until summer and count towards 21. I'm not sure about that. There are still grade concerns with the last two listed. I've not heard much on Stewart Reese lately either. I am told the staff has a plan to make it work if 5 of those listed want to come.

    We will have attrition after spring practice. Always happens.

    That won't affect the 29 figure, so only 4 (or 5?) more spots regardless of who leaves after Spring.

    Gibbs isn't still a possibility?

    Sorry, which 5 then?

    Which position would you expect Beckwith to play?

    Wish we had two SDE to bring in.

    I’m writing off Britt and Manuel but hoping it works out for them and UF one way or the other.

    Incredible job with DBs. If we get Avante we should have great DB units for three seasons where finally if we only take three the next few cycles we are still in great shape.

    Is the OV by Manuel this weekend a sign that he may be ruled eligible at some point in the Spring - and that room would be found for him in that event? I've seen posts stating that he would not be allowed to OV without some realistic path to eligibility. What is your take on this ongoing saga? I personally really hope he gets in, he seems to be making the requisite effort by all accounts, and it would be a win/win situation all around if he gets his academics in order and settles in as a solid citizen and a fully committed team player. His talent level is extremely high and I just hope he isn't forced to go elsewhere after apparently striving to get his life back on track.

    The consensus is Gibbs will stay with GT.

    He has stated he will not announce until April 1st. Really not sure how this will end.

    There used to be a thought that UF wouldn't bring kids in for their official visit unless they knew they were going to qualify, but that has been relaxed under Mullen - Diwun Black was in the same boat last year and came on an official visit, signed, but ended up not qualifying.

    When all is said and done if Mullen finishes with 29 total, adding from the group of listed players, this would be a heck of a recruiting year. He is restocking the roster and steadily working to fix our low numbers problem.

    So, then he can't be in the 2020 class, right?

    Maybe Manuel will just enroll in Summer B instead of signing an LOI? Does that make him count as a 2020 signee? How long do greyshirts have to wait? Until end of fall semester?

    Is it possible backfill EE to the 2019 class? I thought I had read that somewhere.

    IMO Gibbs and Evans were never very good possibilities. Hopefully us showing some interest in them and not offering Clayton til late will not cost us wrt Clayton.

    Wouldn't necessarily count out Britt just yet based upon the fact that he still really wants UF and hasn't given up on the possibility.

    Where did you get that idea? Plenty of kids have OV'd under the past 5 coaches that were questionable on qualifying. Awful lot of kids are on the bubble during prime visit season. Now if we're talking about kids that had low chance of qualifying, you may be correct.
