BTW, who is David Waters?
Just heard the same story from Tom Jacobson too
All I know is they BETTER land some bigger fish then... especially if the kid ends up tells them to F-off and then goes somewhere else. I truly believe this DT class could make or break Mac's tenure here. There is no room whatsoever to fail with that position this year. Just seems a bit risky to slow play a good player at a position of DESPERATE NEED...
Oh it's true...I was just asking him and chad neipling about it.
He covers the Gators for SEC Country I believe. Also has a podcast called the Gators breakdown.
It's beyond stupid!
This is why we always end up with nobody. This staff has no self or situational awareness at all. Mac cant consistently close and compete with the bigs but keeps thinking he can, and worse, that he can do so by coming in at the last minute. Not only is this stupid but these dorks are confident enough in their stupidity that they slow play talent at positions of dire need in the process. This staff will get fired this year for gross negligence and not a single one of them will have even had a clue that their jobs were in jeopardy lol.
dont we have a ton of open spots anyway. Even if we were to land these so called big fish they're holding out for, why cant you still take others that
are interested simply to boost numbers?
This kid says he's been "talking" to Florida (RB from Mobile, AL):
“Better late than never” is the story of the recruitment of running back Nicholas Sims, who is unranked by some recruiting services but is drawing not only SEC interest but SEC offers.
“I’ve been pushing my film for quite a while now and I just got connected with the right people at the right time,” Sims told GN. “Things just started to work out the way I wanted them to.”
Sims (5 feet 11, 200 pounds), from Mobile (Ala.) Murphy, had zero Power Five offers until January 4 — when Alabama offered. Yep, from zero Power Five offers to one from the Tide. He also now has an offer from Ole Miss.
“It was just exciting knowing another SEC program was looking at me,” Sims said. “It was another blessing, but I couldn’t get too excited because I’ve been talking to other schools as well. But it was a very exciting moment in my life.”
Sims also said he is talking to Florida, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
“I’m still trying to soak it all in and I’m enjoying it as it’s going on,” he said. “It’s been a very stressful process for me. I’ve been trying to grind it out as much as I can. I guess I’m just getting blessed at the end.”
Why did it take schools so long to discover Sims?
“I really have no clue,” he said. “I just stayed patient with the process and everything started to work itself out.”
Sims says he received some help from a mentor that has helped in the recruiting process.
“My mentor that has really helped me along the way in my recruiting process is coach Terrence Perine,” he said. “He’s been a great help and he’s helped out a lot of athletes in the Mobile area.”
Terrence Perine is the father of Florida running back Lamical Perine.
Sims knows what he is looking for in a program.
“One of the things I look for in a school is, ‘Are they centered around my particular major?’ I look at education first because a degree can take you a lot farther than football,” Sims said. “I also look at how a program is doing and what type of offense are they running. How are they going to use me in their scheme?”
Sims has official visits lined up to Alabama on January 21 and to Ole Miss on January 27.
Because stupid, thats why.
Three SEC finalists (Alabama, Florida, Tennessee) for 4-star DL Elijah Conliffe
The next three weeks will decide the next four years for four-star defensive lineman Elijah Conliffe.
“I don’t have any official visits set just yet,” Conliffe told GN. “I’m just trying to get those officials set up; that’s where I’m at in the process right now.
“My four leaders are Penn State, Florida, Tennessee and Alabama.”
Conliffe (6 feet 4, 305 pounds) attends Hampton (Va.) High. He is one of the top-20 defensive tackles in the class of 2017.
As for the three SEC schools on his list …
“With Florida, I like the area. You always hear good things about Florida and there is a lot of opportunity there to play SEC ball like I want to play.”
“With Tennessee, I really like the staff and the campus in general.”
“With Alabama, they have really good football and a really good education. I have a good opportunity to get some playing time.”
Conliffe, who has received a lot more attention on the recruiting trail in recent weeks, is thankful for this opportunity.
“It’s a blessing and I’m really thankful for the opportunities I’ve been given,” he said. “It’s nice now seeing different teams showing interest, as well as seeing people who started recruiting me early still being here talking to me.”
When asked to describe the type of player he is on the field, Conliffe said, “I’m very coachable, I’m very aggressive and I love contact.”
Conliffe plans to commit January 31, the day before National Signing Day.
It really sounds dumb. Hopefully its not true.
Why the eff are we not taking Truesdale 's commitment?!!! This is retarded
The bowl speaks.
That class looks weak
They have to keep writing something. Who really knows..
35,800+ thread views and 5,000 were mine just from today looking for news
Awful. He doesn't expect to get anybody. And how is levi jones liking fsu now? Wtf, I thought you had to build relationships? Freakin shannon has know the kid since birth. He coached his damn daddy.
The good news is that the bowl is often wrong... so maybe we end up with Jones...
Thanks for this.. I was just trying to get my hopes up that we would pull of some great recruiting and maybe the staff isn't as bad as we think... you know... trying really hard with orange and blue glasses... then I read this and everything just crashes back down to reality!
That's a weak DL class....our area of greatest need. I'll take the 3 DTs, but only 4 DLs?
Is there a bigger F**k you to Shannon than going to FSU? I mean the guy is a UM alum and DC at UF. That is a pretty big slap in the face for a kid to do to a guy he has a great relationship with.
Isn't his rapper name Crucial?
He just met the Donkey.
Was. Not even sure he still does it except in front of the bathroom mirror.
At least we re getting six DBs. God knows we need some one to keep Burnett, Mc Williams, Williamson, Worton, Lenton, Taylor, Putu, and Kalif Jackson company on the sidelines.
Five - apparently there's an issue with the enrollment of Shawn Davis. Pleased?
With writers, there is always a bandwagon to ride. Now, that wagon seems to be MacnCrew are the very worst
at recruiting; so, any fiction you make up will get traction. They get read because they're preaching to the choir.
Getting read is their guiding unprinciple.
Yeah bart said it. Shawn Davis didn't show up for early enrollment. Rivals Miami board thinks they're going to flip him
Looks like grades.
@SECCountryUF: 3-star Florida CB commit Shawn Davis no longer enrolling early http://sec.news/2jkWajV #GatorNation
Yeah, it's on 247....he's going to take an online course and enroll in May. So he'll be here a semester before the other freshman. Too bad he's missing spring as the CB spot is wide open for a freshman to take.
Florida was expecting Miami (Fla.) Southridge cornerback Shawn Davis to enroll in classes this semester. GatorBait.net learned from sources that the 5-foot-11, 190-pound prospect was not on campus as of Wednesday afternoon.
247Sports' Ryan Bartow was able to confirm with sources at Southridge High that Davis will be taking an online class after falling short of the credits needed to enroll at the University of Florida this month. The plan is for Davis to join the Gators in May following the completion of his remaining course.
Davis committed to Florida over hometown Miami back in August. His lone official visit this fall was to Gainesville in mid-December, just before the dead period began. The 247Sports Composite, an industry generated average, currently ranks Davis as the nation's No. 50 cornerback in the 2017 class.
Head coach Jim McElwain has announced four early enrollees at this time -- offensive tackle Kadeem Telfort, tight end Kemore Gamble, athlete Kadarius Toney, and defensive tackle Kyree Campbell. While McElwain has not announced James Houston as an early enrollee, sources tell GatorBait.net that the linebacker is on campus
Thought they were looking at Davis to possibly move over to Safety where there's more of a need. I don't think Davis would be that Freshman taking a CB spot - more than likely it would be Blades or Wilson, IMO.
These dudes have to be drunk 75% of the time and on coke...that would be the only explanation for the stupidity we're currently witnessing. We'll end up with a total of 4 true DT'S on the roster...watch!
Man...I was wondering why he hasn't committed and now I know. This is incompetence at its finest!
Im good with that.
Slow playing Truesdale in class that is short makes no sense to the point of smelling of BS.
He's got 24 in the class and is counting KLH.
