    Think there is an OL/DL camp going on right now in the Ville.

    Although he's likely to ultimately be a Gator, he has said his commit will come near signing day.

    “That was definitely the greatest experience I’ve ever had. I was down there in the end zone when Tyrie caught that pass. … We were all just dancing and jumping around. It was just the greatest feeling I’ve ever felt in a while. That’s definitely something that opened my eyes up about Florida. The fans are just fantastic people.”

    This is what I've seen from Surtain:
    “It was great,” Surtain told 247Sports’ Blake Alderman after the game. “You know, the game was crazy, the atmosphere was crazy. The defense did their thing, it was an overall great game.”
    “Just the atmosphere, the vibe, the fans, the coaches, the coaching staff, I felt a great relationship with the coaches today and the fans and atmosphere… I’ve been liking Florida. I don’t know why everybody has been saying that it’s not.”

    It's hard for me to believe he chooses UNC over UF.

    Maybe he likes the curriculum of fake classes? Apparently that is ok by NCAA standards though as long as fake classes are offered to everyone. :rolleyes:

    If there's a real shift. What about taking a look at OSU Grad Transfer OT I think. Seen a short info notice on him, name eludes me.

    IF we were to lose Barnes, NPF, and Richard quite honestly this would be a very disappointing class. At the very least we needed two of those three guys.

    Barnes Mom went to UNC and has better relationship with coaching staff

    Heard Hevesy is not a great recruiter and recruits not yet feeling him.

    There's 3 new CB's for Montilus to UNC. WTF? Barnes was my top OL - realistic for us to get, obviously NPF is rated higher but Barnes has been a UF lean for months and months and Montilus was a bonus.

    We will win with or without these guys. UNC will be irrelevant with or without these guys.
