    Yes I know not all 5 star players work out, some transfer and I know that of a lot of lower ranked players end up out performing the 5 star players. But I don't care about that right now. It's been a long time since I've been able to brag about recruiting and I'm starting to feel like we're almost there. Cut me some slack!

    At this point, I'm thinking our best shot might be Dexter gaining his 5th star, which seems pretty possible, from what read.

    5 stars don’t matter if you can not sign any of them. If we sign them we brag when we don’t then we make excuses like they don’t matter. Just ask Bama, Clemson, and Georgia

    You are right that its our best chance, but it's not likely. Dexter has only recently started focusing on football, so the knock on him is that he's raw and needs coaching. That's something that will be hard to show the scouts otherwise because its not a stat line thing, it's a watching film and seeing consistency (which they don't have time to do).

    I had to undo my “winner” rating after giving it some thought and change it to “best post ever”.

    The GC recruiting board absolutely explodes when there’s any talk of a 5 star recruit. Then when CDM keeps piling up the 3 star and low 4 star commits everyone on here starts preaching how stars don’t matter. It would be comical if I didn’t care so much about the future of the Gator program. If you’re ever looking for a creative excuse to use, just come to the GC recruiting board and you’ll find plenty. This is the only board I monitor that isn’t mad as heck about the recruiting situation under CDM.

    Missouri, we should have a contest to see which of us gets more “come on mans”, “disagree” and “dislike” on this thread. Roflmao!!!!

    I dont necessarily care about the star rating I more so look at the player film.. Jaheim Bell is a 3 star... I would much rather have him than Anthony Richardson... I dont care where we rank as for recruting I see a guy that has an elite skill or ability that's guy I wish for us to have... if there is a 3 star quarter back that is more accurate than a 5 star dual threat quarterback I prefer the 3 star all day...

    According to which list you use, ESPN only has 15 guys listed currently as 5 *. UF has a shot at one. For comparison, Marcus Dumerville is rated 4* # 80. People I've talked to say he is perhaps as good as any OL in the country. UF's highest rated commit is Powell at # 28 yet still a 4 *. Dexter is 42 yet still a 4*. Avante Williams is @ 43 right behind Dexter and is the highest rated Safety. Derek Wingo is #231, is there anyone on this board who has watched his film can honstly say there are 230 better prospects? If you have 15-20 5* guys a year, everyone is after those same guys. BTW, Bama has one of the list, LSU 0, UGA 1. I guess those guys are struggling recruiting also.

    Love ya candy, but why are we even talking about ESPN's recruiting rankings? They are hot garbage - worst in the industry.

    Byron Cowart didn't get his #1 rating from being a polished player, and maybe the services should have looked into that more with him. However, a very big part of the recruiting ranking is the projection to the NFL, and he projects as well as anyone at DT to the NFL with his frame and athleticism. Scary dude.

    I really like Bell and wish we hadn't lost him, but he does not have the trajectory of Richardson. If Richardson keeps improving his passing as he has this past year as shown at the Elite 11, he will be a household name in 4 years. He has the perfect skill set for UF. The limited upside, great passing 3 star should go to Uga. He would fit in their offense.
