    I know this season hasn’t started and we’ve got plenty of time but it really seems we’ve fallen behind in Tampa.

    Useless post without supporting evidence of why we have "fallen behind".

    Let's just throw some stuff on the wall and see if it sticks - or maybe not.

    In support of the OP's post, didn't we lose out on a 5 star edge from Tampa last year? Easly I think was his name?

    We currently have WR Isaiah Williams from Carrolwood day in Tampa committed to us. An eighth 1/8 of our whole recruiting class so far. Lol

    2026 QB Will Griffin is Tampa Jesuit. He is a Gator target and looks to be very interested in UF.

    Eugene Wilson III and Dijon Johnson are both high 4*s from Tampa in the current 2023 class (the one that is actually in the books). They are our 4th and 5th highest-ranked recruits in the class. How many players should we have from one single city in a state of 22 million people before we would be considered "not behind?"

    This is a convo for the 90s. Last year Georgia chose 5 players from their talent rich footprint. Nobody is locking down their state/footprint just for the sake of doing so.
