    Yes he JUST added them. My guess is McKinstry is going to Alabama so he’s more of a secondary option there.

    He is likely being pressured by Taylor to go to Miami too (assuming Taylor is Miami).

    I do have passion for the sport, but I’m not going to get worked up over recruiting. I used to get all bent out of shape when we didn’t get a recruit. Not anymore. I love my Gators more than most but in the end it’s kids playing a game. I will watch them play win or lose. We make a lot of assumptions about this player or that that player and what the staff has or hasn’t said to them. No one really knows all we can do is prognosticate. I am just over the jump off the ledge mentality when it comes to recruiting.

    Marshall is Bama bound if he wants to go there, he's not getting slow played or passed over

    Beyond Smith and Collins not feeling like we get Marshall or Taylor s as Nd probably not Collier. I’ll go this far, Collins looks like a Cane in the end.

    no commitment from Watson yet is a huge worry. Still can’t figure out why we can’t seem to close on so many kids. At this point Watson is an absolute must get ( this is working on premise that we’ve missed on Taylor and Collins).

    I'm not jumping off the ledge either. But I can say rather unemotionally that our recruiting is not at an elite level and it may hinder our ability to take the next step as a program.

    We're taking a step back if we don't improve on this year's recruiting. Pruitt is a dumb redneck but he was a very good recruiter as an assistant coach. It would take 3-4 more years but it's possible we fall behind Tennessee if we sign classes in the 15-20 range. It's not a coincidence that Bama, Ohio St, Clemson, UGA divide the elite prospects among themselves.

    I’m in agreement to an extent that the recruiting needs to improve, and in the scheme of things we will not go as far as we expect to go in Gainesville, but our being upset and letting the whims of teenagers dictate our happiness like I see some on this board do is something I’ll not do anymore. Like a lot of things in life it’s never as bad as it seems, and never as good as it seems either

    I don’t blame you, Florida has literally been taking constant L’s in recruiting all year.

    You say that, but this is how we look recruiting after two 10 win seasons....imagine how this class will look if we go 7-5/8-4 this upcoming season

    I bet all our rivals point at our own fans on these boards and social media when recruits visit them. I mean.... 90% is player and coach bashing. Mullen and staff "cAnT rEcRuIt" but doubled the amount of blue chip kids Mac brought it, that Mac went 4-7 his final year and embarrassed Gator Nation in EVERY rivalry game. Only for CDM and crew to go 21-5 with those same classes and really only 1 or 2 bad losses. But hey, 5* are still flocking to the same 3/4 schools that are cheating their asses off... But our guy "CaNt ReCrUiT".... Just shaking my head....

    Yea man im 100% sure WE are the reason Leonard Taylor and Jason Marshall arent coming to UF lol.

    Dang it guys, let's not point the finger at the guys who are making mid to high 6 (and even 7) figures who's job it is to recruit, the blame lies on us.

    This thread which was made 2-3 days ago was what tipped Taylor towards Miami. @cubangator, if only we never have anything critical to say, we'd have a top 3 recruiting class. Thanks for reminding us

    I’m
    Look man I see what your saying, but if we go 7-5 or 8-4 it’s not going to change my quality of life. I’m still going to get up and go to work and try to be a good dad and husband. I’ll still drive my custom Gator painted F250, cheer on the orange & blue and go on about my life. Staying ticked off about something I absolutely can’t control is a waste of time and energy. I come to this board to get updates on recruiting to see if any of the kids I help mentor were being recruited by Florida. Which some of them were and some actually played for UF. Three of which are still in the NFL. But hey fan means fanatical so by all means scream and shout, jump up and down.
