    With this weekend being a pretty important one with the Friday night lights, the cookout and the scheduled commitment announcements of some top targets I thought having a dedicated thread to post anything to do with those would be helpful. Can't wait to see how we look come Monday.

    Time for Movement! Recruiting is like war, Long stretches of logistical boredom followed by brief spasms of intense action!

    Not to really liken it to combat, but hopefully our military board members get the analogy I'm making.

    There are several of us who could drop a handful of names. I'll have
    I could have a week ago. I just cancelled my subscription to On3. Most of the inside info I would see a day or two later over here. They seemed overly optimistic about certain prospects coming to UF. Might pick it up again at the end of the cycle.

    Just saw that Kelby Collins is coming in this weekend. Otherwise, I don't think we'll see a complete list till Friday, then on Saturday we'll find out about no-shows.

    Like Afghanistan?

    Just kidding. It really is about logistics and I with Billy's staff and his emphasis on detail, that's going to be huge advantage down the line.

    I like Kelby collins in this class. Our own Scooby Williams is even recruiting him offering to give him his #17 if he comes. Would be a big get imo.
