    This puts a very positive perspective on the upcoming Gator baseball season for sure.

    We got a transfer pitcher from Southern Miss named Hurston Waldrep.
    I have a good friend in MS that has a baseball suite and gives plenty of money. He is an asphalt contractor and paved the softball parking lot for free. I have been at his house when the fundraiser guy who is assigned to him was there.
    He says he knows for a fact that Waldrep got 100K to transfer.
    Is that even possible or plausible? That doesn't align with what we are hearing, so chime in.

    Very possible and very plausible. I'm sure he got a nice NiL deal

    I love hearing that UF might be committing financially here. You know LSU, Arky, Texas, etc can play this game.

    OF Colby Thomas from Mercer was the 95th pick, 3rd round by the Oakland A's and got a signing bonus of $750,000. INF Dale Thomas from Coastal Carolina was not drafted and should compete for a job at 2nd, SS or 3rd when fall practice opens in October.

    A while ago an FSU player said a teammate was amphibious.
