    Napier has already proven himself to me as a recruiter. I hope he can coach at the same level in P-4 conference.

    I have a scientific way of determining which outlet to use. When it's a Gator, I go with the site with the highest rating. When it's a rival's player/commit I go with the site that has them the lowest.

    I absolutely agree Napier will be a stud recruiter - however we ought to give some credit to Mullen. He wasn't an awful recruiter, just not elite. He put is in a good position to land Wilson and James with the way the team performed on the field and in recruiting. Napier just sealed the deal. Napier even gave credit to Mullen in his presser.

    James decommited from Mullen's gators. Although I sort of agree with the rest of your sentiments.

    Mullen did a good job loading up tge 2020 year’s team on offense by adding some transfers, and utilizing the talent he inherited.

    But each year the defense got worse and worse, and when the offensive players were all his, even his offense sputtered a bit this past year. With an inept defense he couldn’t afford any slip up on offense at all. Whether it was sticking to the wrong QB or not having enough WR talent, the passing game just fell back too much this year and the INT’s really killed things.

    McCelwain wasn’t a great recruiter either, but at least his staff actually was pretty good at evaluations (at least on offense), where several 3* went in to be stars. There was no sign of that with Mullen.

    Mullen was just not a good recruiter, and like Muschamp he neglected the side of the ball he didn’t coach.

    But Kamari Wilson isn't on Rivals ;)

    Rivals also breaks the comparison because according to them Dan had five 5* players

    What are you talking about? Mullen had nothing to do with Wilson. He had 0 interest in Florida when Mullen was here.
