    did you play D1 ball?
    How many kids did he send to D1 and how many of those to UF?

    I’ve known him for many years and definitely not anti-UF. Actually, he’s somewhat pro UF if anything. For whatever reason, Plant kids just don’t pick UF. Just have to recruit harder and better.

    Many longtime Gator leaning HS coaches were rubbed the wrong way by Chump. Look no further than JD at Dwyer. He is a Gator but after a few of his guys interacted with Chump, he “may” have been more likely to encourage his players to look around.

    Yes, but let’s not forget Chris Weinke was IMG HC for 5 years.

    My bad, I forgot he was the football director during his time there. The point remains that he was heavily influential in the program from 2010-2014.

    True....it's just that the "program" was vastly different in those early years

    Admittedly APK, you follow high school ball much closer than I as I’ve been out of state quite a bit over the last 13 years. IMG and it’s catering to everyone not UF while Weinke was there is one of the things I remember.

    This... all day long. And the sad thing some people do even know that this whole "school" was set up that way from the beginning.

    When a program establishes a pipeline with a HS and has a strong relationship with the HS coach, it is hard to stop that momentum.
