    Thanks Candy, so, among the group you listed we have Leans
    1 UF
    4 LSU
    3 Miami
    1 each for Auburn, Georgia, FSU, Tennessee (in your opinion), and Texas

    Among Commits, we have
    2 UF
    1 each for FSU, Bama, FSU, UK & Cincy

    Plus 4 OLine who are possibly leaning toward UF, but possibly not.

    Of the limited number of top non-signees, there is a lot of pressure. Unless Mullen & crew are Silver Tongues, it's likely going to be difficult to get a lot of top kids to sign on the 7th. Now, I''m thinking probably 6 to 8 more.

    As usual Kerr, you list is curious.

    I can still see us oversigning by 2, maybe 3 guys this year.

    what is curious about the list? I just reviewed the ESPN 300. There are still some quality players not committed. A few of these don't have UF on their radar.

    Grantham is gonna have to hit the trail hard over the next month and flip some front 7 guys

    Interesting you list Silvera as a um lean. He’s said a few times he’s all um. (1000% to be exact)

    I haven’t seen Campbell or Tyson give any indication of interest in us. But hope you’re right.

    Manac has to be a grades issue. Cincinnati? We always had problems qualifying jucos but that seems to have improved recently.

    Thanks candy.

    Fwiw, Harbaugh is a sneaky SOB. Michigan is practicing at Nic Petit Frere's school for their bowl. I wouldn't be surprised to see him gain interest in UM. And he took his OV to ann arbor in September.

    Dorian Gerald has been very pro UF with his Tweets & re-Tweets lately! Not sure if he's just trying to create drama for his decision. He has scheduled his OV for UF for the last weekend before signing day. Which is usually a good sign. We shall see.......

    Kerr, I meant Curious because I thought there were more than a few who have shown no interest in UF, which you explained. Thus, no so curious any more.

    Regarding the list Growing tc, given Mullen's statements in his Early LOI press conference, I expect several new names to appear by the time January rolls around.

    I expect a final class of 22-23, not 25, and feel that 5-8 will come from Candy's list, meaning 1-2 who currently are not on that list.

    Because so many top athletes pray for guidance, it's not surprising when a prayer produces choices that differ from what has happened before. It's always interesting how differently people perceive similar stimuli of any sort, and that certainly includes energies one receives when praying.

    Why don't you sneak into the war room and see who the coaches have on their board. Snap a photo and post it here?

    We only have 8 slots left barring Gouraige or Gammage not signing, so that is about right, and leaving one or two slots open is not a bad idea for this first year if there are more SEC-ready transfers available.

    On that list only Barnes and Bonitto are realistic possibilities. Major shakeups would have to occur to get in on the others.

    You are dealing with 17-18 year olds....anything can happen. Maybe they click with the new coaching staff?
