I think our most realistic shots are DJ Smith, Scott, and Samuel. Maybe Sawyer.

Prince and Green would be my top choices but they both look like long shots

Yea Nolan is as solid as they come to UF. I'll say this, I've seen big o-lineman, and I saw him last weekend. His measurements have to be a little skewed. IMO we get Samuel (kinda obvious), DJ Smith is trending, Scott, Sawyer and probably flip Wideman. With Green, there is too much pulling him to UGA right now for anyone to be confident.

If we can land

Scott
Wideman
Sawyer
Green
Smith

This class would be an excellent haul. All five of those players are inside Rivals top 250, and Rivals just recently updated their rankings. We'll finish with 12 (4*) players, not that it matters, but that's still awesome. Thomas/Harris/Stallworth/Samuel all have potential to be bumped to a 4* rating. This class still has a chance to be the best ever.

C2, I guess you saw where Lammons is taking an OV with us on Jan 17.
Can you open his thread back up. Wisconsin thinks they have the best chance to flip him, we'll see about that.

I don't think Ford was any longer a take for us, so Louisville didn't take him from us.

Actually this absolutely could happen. Scott, we have led or been in his top 2 from day 1. Most insiders feel Wideman has already flipped or will do so. Great shot at landing Sawyer & Smith & many insiders think we lead for both. Right now, my biggest longshot is Green & we are in his top 2. Problem is, 2 of these guys may very well not qualify. We have a better shot at all these guys than Are imo

I think we should be calling every top 20-25 CB recruit in the nation and say you can walk in here day 1 and be a starter. We have zero depth at all and we want you to start next year for DBU. Start as a true freshman for a top 10 team in the SEC. At the very least you will be a nickel back or in the 2 deep as soon as you sign. See if we can flip a 4 or a 5 star kid to us.

I was mostly referring to the fact that I seriously doubt that both Sawyer and Wideman qualify.

Then they'll ask, Well if you are DBU then why don't you have any DB's? Which is beyond me how we let our DB situation get so bad! It used to be our primary strength...

TBS is reporting the coaches are seriously considering making this

I'm surprised, but I'm even more relieved due to all of the attrition talk that is flying around.

How is that possible? Wouldn't we need to lose 10+ players due to attrition?

The numbers have seemed bizarre this year. Turning down guys like Chris Lammons initially because things were so tight. Deciding not to pursue Christian Miller. And lately it seems like we are throwing out new offers right and left.

Yes. This appears to me that the coaches are going to release more than they originally planned instead of giving them another year to get better.......it looks like aren't going to wait around anymore.

So that leaves 7 players. Scott, Sawyer, Wideman, Green or Lammons, and Smith. Are is a possibility. Who's the seventh player? The only one I can think of is Bronson. Daly would probably be a walk-on.

It is quiet because we have a little more than a month until we find out if we have a legit shot at him. The January 17th visit is what will determine our chances and there is only so many times we can all keep saying it. Just have to wait and hope he makes the visit.
