    We don't seem to have interest in him. No one except desperate teams do.

    I'm not sure what it is, but there is something there I'd guess.

    edit: 247 says Mushcuck CB. I think he believes he is a Bammer or Clemson guy and they laughed at him.

    Everything I have seen and read says is we don’t want him. Apparently no one in Florida wants him either

    I am leaning towards the grades angle. He basically has not visited anyone officially yet. That usually smacks of grades. All that is missing is listing West Virginia or Louisville as possible desitination to scream grades.

        I'm not saying both are going to safety, but I also think it's possible, bc Stewart might be the most suited for nickel out of the 3 if we continue to play it how we did this year.

        I guess we could talk UF offering Nnoruka as a sign UF does not expect to sign another DL in this class?

        Not necessarily. He'd contribute in 2019 and we wouldn't be expecting freshman to really contribute a lot til 2020. If anything, I'd think it more likely indicates our coaches think we'll have a transfer out.

          It sucks we can't sign DT Sorrells as an academic redshirt like some other teams apparently can.

          he doesn't seem to be particularly well liked by anyone.

          Is there still a chance with Pickering? He was going to Miss. St. when Mullen was there and I know Mullen has been trying to get him to come to Gainesville. He would be a great fit for a big need.

            There was never a chance. He is cowbell or bammer.

              Kevin Carter, Huey Richardson, Brad Culpepper and Trace Armstrong beg to differ. And they are just guys who played DL and by various public accomplishments we know are reasonably smart. Certainly not all football players at any position are necessarily scholars, but UF has had it fair share of decently smart and not so smart defensive linemen.

              If Pickering flips to anyone, it will happen on NSD

              I don't follow recruiting so I don't know what we need, but if the question is who should we convince to leave, that would be either nobody or anybody who wants to go.

              I want students that want to be Gators and compete for their position.
