    Wow...I hope the kid does succeed but there is a huge concern regarding his decision making.

    Don't underestimate the impact of extreme embarrassment on a teenage boys decision making. He's been telling everybody important in his life that was going to Ole Miss, and in his mind he seemingly believed he was, just to lose that at the last second. He was naive to not understand the way recruiters (likely) worded things to have an out but again he's a teenage boy. I can't imaging how I would have acted in the same situation but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have been behavior that I would look upon proudly as time poured more wisdom into me.

    Doesn’t take Lame long to make headlines. He’ll be a great fit for Ole Mess.

    This isn't on Lane and Ole Miss as they were straight up with him and he just...I guess did whatever he wanted to do

    And maybe i'm overlooking it....but i don't see where Ole Miss even signed a WR this cycle

    TOS has a different version of the story. This version sounds like it came from Ole Mess’ PR Department.

    Are you saying Ole Miss never offered him and then withdrew the offer?

    Manuel will not be a Gator... Book it!! A academy is his best chance to grow as a person first and foremost.

    Britt is the unknown but if I'd wager today... I got a fifty he goes JUCO at this point.

    I'm no expert though.

    Lame will always be Lame, it's just in his DNA...

    I think Britt is a lot closer than Manuel and there aren't the same questions about his character. I expect Britt to be a Gator but not Manuel. A 2.0 and 17 will get him into Ole Miss but not UF.

    All the more reason why Ole Miss was looking for WRs this cycle they're still recruiting one right now...

    I really like Manuel from what I've seen but it really seems that ship has sailed...not sure if he gets in Ole Miss either

    Britt on the other hand I would say is more than likely (better than 50% chance) to end up a Gator

    Britt would be a very good, late addition

    It's really up to both Britt and Manuel at this point to effect their future.
