    UF is at 18. Honestly I'm not sure the staff is looking at it as 16 or 17. Anyway, as the season starts don't get impatient. There may be guys UF is waiting to see what happens during the season. For example, what if a coach at a high profile program gets on the hot seat Does that school have any commits who may wish to look elsewhere?

    I expect UF to sign as many as 27, which would mean keep all on board and sign 10 more. This is who I think the staff would like to add to the 16/17/18 commits.

    Offense: No brainier Bowman or Smith. This is where I think UF is. Perhaps they could add in a late guy who is having a great season . Honestly, I think UF would take both if they could get them. What is concerning is what if UF gets neither.

    WR: Arian Smith and Henderson

    OL: Dumerville and Walker.

    On Defense:
    DL: Tim Smith
    DE: Zykeivous Walker
    DB: Jahquez Robinson
    DB: Avante Williams
    Position Unsure: Ladarious Tennison
    DE: Donnell Harris

    Other Prominent names: DB Henry Gray,
    RB Henry parrish, DB Mordecai McDaniel, Portier at WR, some think Rosemy is still in play-I don't but Marc Britt is.

    Just to give you a perspective. I listed 18 guys. UF will not and cannot take them all.

    Who would you finish with if you could add 10 more.

    From your list I deduce that you’re not in the “Bowman is a silent” camp. :(

    Candy do you like the commits so far and could you see any pushed out or leaving of their own accord?

    This implies the best at each position like pie in the sky such as......
    Bowman, Rosemy, Donell Harris, A Williams, X-man Henderson, Arian Smith, Dumervil, Tim Smith, Zyke Walker, Issiah Walker.

    Instead here's who I think we finish with matched with our position needs.
    RB - EJ Smith
    WR - X-man Henderson, Marc Britt (or Tennison)
    OL - Issiah Walker, Marcus Dumervil
    DL/LB - Zyke Walker, Donell Harris
    DB - Jahquez Robinson, Henry Gray, Kamar Wilcoxson(2021)

    And Tennison can actually play safety and running back too... Mullen likes players that are versatile.

    Bed wet being on another coast!
    Choke, beat, slap, disrespect, hold against their will, or sexually assault any woman or man for that matter!

    Look at the portal as the future!
    Read Gatorcountry and get offended when stupid things are typed by foolish peeps!

    You get the picture.

    I'm not a * gazer, so the kids that will buy into the "Gator Standard" and want to rep the UofF to the fullest both athletically and academically, and then possibly show out in the pros!

    Flip two state of Florida Alabama commits? Class of 6 DL, all sorely needed. Best close ever? Would be an incredible finish.

    I do like our guys but history tells us that at least one or two will not be in the final class.

    Any buzz around Damien Alford? He was turning a lot of heads at Friday Night Lights, but he then he reclassified to a 2020 and I've heard nothing more about him

    Is ANYONE in that camp that he's "silent"?!

    I mean I think we have a decent shot to flip him, since there are so many pro-Gator influences around him every day, but to date, I haven't seen anyone claim he's in the bag or even a Gator lean.

    Well why even take up real estate on the first page and not drop a list of recruits you'd like if that's what Candy asked our opinion on? Lol

    That rumor was out there and I’ve had some friends bring it up. I was just kidding though and never bought into it.

    Who I realistically think we CAN close with (and basically who i'd want):

    Offense:

    Beckwith
    Poitier
    Henderson
    Dumervil
    EJ

    Defense:

    Gray
    Williams
    Robinson
    Jayson Jones

    on the fence:

    Tim Smith
    Walker
    Arian Smith
    Alford
    Lambert
    Dennis
    Harris
    M'Ba (I think if he's good for sure academically, we'll get him)

    Would love to see the staff's plan for MLB though.

    My biggest "flip" hope is Tim Smith. I'm not "feeling" the vibe about Bowman. He's locked up tighter than the formula for coca cola.

    Really, really, really hope we get EJ.
    The Bowman loss was bad, losing EJ will be equally awful IMO. Like to see CDM win this legacy battle just to keep the wolves at bay.

    But I'm taking your recommendation to heart Candy. Not overly anxious about lack of signee's at the moment. Let the season play out and hopefully that helps the Gators.

    BTW I like Candy's / Matherlys and Bobby's list(s)!! Would be happy with either!!
    "Happy" may not quite describe it - How about ecstatic? lol
