    That makes sense. Also read that he put on a lot of weight.

    Dude...I photoshoped that. I even left an error (look at his right collar). Sorry to get your hopes up. My pics/gifs are not to be taken seriously.

    If we’re turning him away, there better be a dang good reason. I agree this one hurts.

    Cause for optimism?
    https://www.seccountry.com/florida/florida-recruiting-matt-corral

    The next two weeks will be critical for the nation’s No. 3 pro-style quarterback.

    Matt Corral, a consensus top-100 overall recruit, has been committed to Florida since July 22, but that decision is now in limbo due to the coaching changes at UF.

    Corral remains solid to the Gators and wants to enroll early, but needs to build a relationship with new Florida coach Dan Mullen in a short period of time. They first spoke last week.

    “Matt has heard from Coach Mullen,” said his father Peter Corral. “They talked on the phone. Coach Mullen told him everything starts over and that he was going to get to know Matt.”

    Corral’s father said Mullen contacted him as well, but they have yet to schedule an in-home visit or an official visit with Florida.

    “Coach Mullen called my wife and I at home after one his assistants [Billy Gonzales] came to see Matt,” his father said. “He was just telling us that Matt is his guy and that he can’t wait to meet us. We just want to know where things stand.”

    In addition to Corral, Mullen made contact with a handful of quarterbacks last week and has targeted mostly dual-threat passers. He conducted an in-home visit last Tuesday with 5-star QB Justin Fields, who is currently committed to Georgia.

    “I’m fine with that. Matt’s fine with that, too,” Corral’s father said of Mullen’s interest in Fields. “Matt’s not afraid of competition. It’s just about communication. If they need to sign a second quarterback, we just want to be updated on what’s going on.”

    Corral’s father thinks highly of Mullen’s offense and believes Matt can have success under his tutelage. He also liked the message from Gonzales last Thursday when he visited Corral at Long Beach Poly High School.

    “Coach Gonzales told Matt he’s got the ‘it’ factor,” Corral’s father said. “He told us they can build their offense around him and his strengths. That’s what Matt wants.

    “His goal is to play in the NFL and Coach Mullen can get him there. Everybody knows he can coach quarterbacks. He’s a great coach. There’s no doubt about that.”

    However, Corral’s father admits that Matt still needs to sit down with Mullen at some point this month to put a stamp on his commitment.

    Corral officially visits Ole Miss this weekend and may take a trip to LSU as well, according to his father. Alabama is also in the mix for Corral, who visited the Crimson Tide last month.

    The U.S. Army All-American and Elite 11 finalist will be a mid-year enrollee and plans to sign early on Dec. 20.

    “Hopefully everything will fall into place,” Corral’s father said. “I just want Matt to be happy, settled down, comfortable where he’s at and knowing that he’s wanted there.”

    This all sounds great, but if they want to schedule a visit why wouldn't they just have done it? Corral is going to ole miss so it's not like he was busy.

    You guys are so funny with this Matt Corral stuff.....some of you even seem to be giddy with the idea of him decomitting. The kid has been the glue to this class and will be part of it in 2 weeks, then you can complain about how he wont be a good fit and want to see him fail

    Dunno. The whole thing is a little baffling honestly. I do think we need two QBs this cycle because we've got hot garbage there right now. I don't understand not locking him down. Even if he isn't the QB power type guy you can still have him running the outside zone because the kid can move.

    Who has been giddy about him possibly decommitting? Seems like the biggest consensus on the board is that we all want him in the class. The furthest is @Swamp Donkey who has just said that someone else might be a better fit (which is almost impossible to argue).

    This kid is no John Brantley. He actually has some wheels... I don't know why everyone keeps saying he should decommit or we shouldn't want him now that we have Mullen? Has anyone watched some of his highlights? He's no Tim Tebow, in terms of being a runner, but the kid can throw the damn ball and CAN also run... I sure as hell hope he sticks but would certainly be to pick up a second QB in this class because we can certainly go through some QB's during the course of a season! HOPEFULLY that'll change with an "actual" strength and conditioning coach.

    I agree. I'm not saying I think this is the case, but the only hope to me is that mullen asked him to quiet down a bit just to not scare away a 2nd commit. I assume we lose someone to transfer and you don't want to go into a season with mullen's scheme and 3 QBs, two of which wouldn't be built to run it.

    Yeah, that's actually not a bad play, especially if the guy you're looking to lock down is a early signing period guy. The one issue I have is if that isn't communicated to the guys hanging on because of him we could see the whole damn thing implode.

    Bc mullen has been successful with Dak, Timmy and Fitzgerald. Those aren't guys that 'have some wheels'. Those are very big guys that can take a beating inside. I really want Corral in the class, but the things people are saying are very justified.

    Are these kids being told to look elsewhere, or are they decommiting because they know the glue of the class (Corral) is leaving also. I just hope this isnt like Eason situation, throwing all our eggs in one basket and going after Fields, and Corral decommits and we're stuck without a decent qb in this class

    I wouldn't worry about that. I assume he's on a group text with everyone and could still be communicating with them just as much.

    Why do people not read the thread before they comment? Corral's status is shown just a few posts up.
