    Dontae Manning, the #2 ranked CB in the 2020 class has just decommited from UOklahoma. He is 6' and 175lbs out of Missouri.

    No. 2 CB Manning decommits from Oklahoma

    Maybe he can transfer here?
    We are in need since Steele and now Edwards are leaving us.

    Dontae, come to Gainesville, which is 100x better than Norman!

    No. No. It says in the article the reason is Sharknados.

    After I contacted a friend of mine, he alluded to Edwards not looking to get a starting spot or is getting worried about enough playing time.

    Weird. See georgia game last year. We did not have depth so he must feel incoming could pass him.

    Having to sit moved others up the depth chart

    So he goes to an easier route

    Good luck to him but rather see players earn their position

    Steele had already passed him... of course that only makes matters worse now.

    FWIW on Manning- he was just on an OV to see Jimbo at TAMU two weeks ago - I'd imagine these two things are related. He'd make a hell of an incoming duo with Jaylon Jones there, who was the best DB at the Opening by most accounts, and I bet he knows that. I don't know of any interest he has shown UF at all.

    Personally, I'd rather see our time spent on the guys we have a shot at that are in our backyard - Avantae, J. Robinson, Pouncey. Even Tate, McKnight, and Francois after they see Willie and Manny's disasters play out this year.

    Until the new dorm is built and we beat UGA and/or Bama with the signature win needed- going whale hunting out of state (unless there is a compelling reason like family in Florida - Tyrie Cleveland) is misspent resources, let's win here first.

    Kid is worth a phone call and some love, especially if we already have been in contact in the past. Plenty of time to recruit every kid on that list plus Manning.
