Postby airg8r96 » Wed Dec 12, 2012 6:08 pm

I just read on another site that Demarcus Robinson has committed to UF. Sorry, I do not know how to do links.

Yeah, golf is a pretty tough game. Expensive, too, :)

Huge! This is the #5 WR in the country and makes some absolute circus catches on his video. Could this be Joker Phillips' first big score?

Check out the catch at the 1:30 mark - sick!

Hope he is as good as the last WR we got out of Peach County. Welcome aboard Demarcus!

Now we have a true #1 and probably the best WR class in the country with Fulwood, Robinson and Bailey. Robinson is playmaker and will contribute. Has a good chance to start being an EE.

Well we still can only sign 25 per year and as I understand only 32 in this cycle with EEs.

I think that two players could and should go on medical scolly. I don't support removing scolly from our recruits just because they are not as good as we expected, not if they have issues that they won't address that is different.

Issues include not performing in the classroom and not putting in the effort required. Almost nothing else.

When you're typing a post, look up and notice all the features at your disposal. "Quote" if you want to quote someone. "Url" if you want to link something. "Img" if you want to post an image, etc...

I posted we had a chance to flip Robinson about a month ago. I also think there is a good chance we flip CB Jalen Ramsey from USC at some point.

Right now the coaches are in sniper mode, and with our momentum anyone they're targeting is a possibility. We've got our needs met and now we're just taking best available.

This one was all CWM but having Joker sitting next to him in DR house helped seal the deal. They aren't done either.

I agree.

They're just cherry picking right now.

Disagree with kicking kids off that are simply not good enough. 99% of the scholarship players were recruited by Muschamp or Meyer and if they are not good enough it is due to their evaluation and/or lack of developing talent. I am all for winning but not at the expense of our integrity.

Lastly I find it interesting that people used to criticize Saban for this very thing but now it is okay.

When the class is already loaded, as with this one, you can dial down to get what you really need. Robinson is a great addition to the UF receiving corps with the size to bump with SEC secondaries.

Agree with those who believe in honoring our commitment to all the student athletes we have recruited and extended scholarships. If you start that kind of nonsense no one on the recruiting trail will take you at your word.

There are a lot of reason why kids don't work out. Most don't have anything to do with the coaches.

I agree with what you are saying but i am referring to kids not being good enough, not a lack of effort, off the field issues, poor grades etc.

When I read the initial statement I was envisioning a kid giving his all but unfortunately lacking in the God given talent department.
