    It's been said by several people on other sites that he has two years left to play. I wonder if he has one or two years left?

    So,.....do transfers count for recruiting points in the rankings? I looked at the Rivals rankings and he is not listed on our roster yet. I also looked at Tennessee's list, trying to find the DE that transferred in from Michigan but I didn't see him yet either. I could have missed him though....Just wondering. I am VERY happy with the way things have gone so far and still looking for a few more of the big fish that are going to visit, to hopefully sign. Just like seeing us rise for the prestige and pshychological effect. :)

    No, transfers don’t show up in recruiting rankings unless they are JUCOs usually.

    Kinda dumb way to rank incoming classes/ players if you ask me. They only exist on game day.

    Exactly right. Just laughed at people whining that FSU finished recruiting ranked 13 and UF 14, or whatever it was last year....and ignoring Krull, Grimes, Jefferson, Shuler. Those guys clearly made the influx of talent top 10

    The article says 1 year but he can petition for a medical hardship. So, possibly 2 years.

    Of interest to this discussion, 247 does a composite roster which reflects the HS recruiting rank of transfers. For last season, the Gators had the #12 ranked composite roster:

    So as a RS Sophomore, he graduated from UL in 3 years?! That's pretty impressive. Or did he have a medical RS as well?

    Not to discount the kid but I think he redshirted his first year. His tweet announcing he was leaving mentioned something to the effect of "the last 4 years...". I believe he'll be a RS senior for us with the ability to apply for an extra year for the injury.

    Are you sure they include transfers in this composite? I clicked on the score and it shows Justin Watkins still factored and this list was compiled 3 months after he was dismissed.

    As someone else stated the best part is this kid was a captain. That speaks volumes as to the caliber of player and man he is and the respect he garnered from his locker room. Great get imo.

    Welcome to the swamp!!!
