Dust in wind
All we are is dust in the wind
just saw his top 8; moving on
Kids today have no passion about a school. It’s like sayin I can’t decide between UF and Georgia. Whaaaaat? Gtfooh!
Lol true. I just dont see us winning this one
I get interested once we are in a kid's Top 1. And even then, I'm not sure I like our chances.
A 5 star transfer is not the same as a 5 star high school commitment.
here is the difference between a 5 star transfer and a 5 star recruit- recruits are rated 5 * because the general consensus is that they can contribute early in a meaningful way. The 4 stars tend to take a few years,even though their peak may be the same. A transfer who has sat out a year has probably lost their first two years of eligibility before they arrive at your school. That means you get 1 or maybe two years before they jump to the NFL. The guy you recruited out of high school meanwhile has given you 3 - 4 years. These are not apples to apples. A case in point is Alabama’s 5 star offensive tackles who have started since they were freshman and our 3-4 star tackles who have taken much longer to develop. Which would you rather have?
You might need to point out to us all the 5 star OT at Alabama that started all 3 or 4 years of their career. I am only aware of one, and the reason for that is almost no freshmen start at OT unless the OL is absolute hot garbage, regardless of their star count. Georgia also has stockpiled those 5 * and nigh 4* OL on the bench. At some positions such as WR it is easier for a freshman 5 star to start right away and have an impact. However, that is usually not the case.
Also, some 5 stars are rated 5 star because of their raw abilities that eventually translate to the NFL. Some of them will not start as a freshman and only get worked into the mix once they learn the game. Dexter is one of those types, who was a big liability on the DL last year. I expect he will be much better this year.
Our transfers have given us 2 years of playing time so far (except grad transfers who we have lately not needed because of the transfer portal), so the difference is not huge between the high school and transfer 5 stars. If someone is transferring, they know that they are unlikely to be one and done. They have not put enough plays on film to justify a first round pick that they want.
In some cases it is preferable not to have prima dona 5 star freshmen not playing who are a cancer in the locker room. Meyer had some of those rifts between the upperclassmen and freshmen in his time with us.
Evan Neal and Alex leatherwood both started at some point of their freshman years.
Sigh...I didn’t consider dexter a huge liability for us last year and he is an exception to the rule because he was a late bloomer in high school. You can always pick out exceptions. I was speaking in generalities. You really don’t like 5 stars do you? I suppose you also think Mullen recruited the 3 stars on purpose...
Former Gator Sharrif Floyd is mentoring Enai White.
Meyer won 2 national titles...
Marshall - 4 years of Gator eligibility
Bowman - 4 years - redshirt
Dexter - 4 years
Lingard - 3 years
Shorter - 3 years
Cox - 3 years
We haven't been taking anything but Freshman and Sophomore 5*s. Plus, none of ours have been transferring out, like they do at, say, ... Georgia.
Jonah Williams and Cam Robinson did too. Started as 5* freshmen
I didn't realize that about the Bowman redshirt. Even better. Fixed it. Thanks.
