    Liked pretty much all the December pick up. Ahmarean Brown should cause problems for opponents Day 1. Imagine USF Kick Returner. That’s the type of speed he possess. Lockhart will be a DT. He will be a force. Demetrius Knight is my sleeper pick of the class. I thought he would a LB as soon he stepped on campus. 4.6 guy who played QB physical and powerful like Nesbitt. I always use the 2015 Florida defense as my baseline for what CGC wants on defense. Hopefully, Knight can be the Jarad Davis for us.

    Current commits. I love the size and length we have. Wiggles versatility is intriguing. All of our LBs are Uber-athletic, run well and can play in space

    The combo of King, Ward, & Gowdy(expected to commit on the 30th) can win us a lot of ball games. The battle btw Gleason & Yates should be a great. Solid OL. Really like Williams. Not sure if we have that stall worth LT yet. Jahmyr Gibbs and Jamious is a nasty 1-2 combo

    Probably happened right after spring practice, but just now being made public. After spring ball, grades, talking with parents & getting the speech I got after my first year as a walk-on & going through spring ball - "Well, if you're not gonna play, you need to finish your degree & figure out what you're gonna do with your life. BTW, you're over 18, you ain't coming home." - a lot of guys decide to get on with their lives.

    Each year, I pick one guy. One guy that for whatever reason I think is going to really surprise everybody and have an amazing career.

    This year, my pick is Ahmarean Brown #10

    That, from you, puts my mind at ease. I figured the DBs coming in were probably better and both the staff and the departing players knew it.
    Just the numbers of OL was worrisome to me but if Bo was always injured then maybe that’s a good move for him and the team.

    Lately, about a third of the time. I know I'm not doing so great when I can't remember who I picked last year or the year before that.

    But I'm pretty sure I'm right this time. :thumbup:

    If it’s a “career” pick, how do you know you haven’t done so great “lately”?

    Good point. I'll have to dig up last year's post and the one before that.

    Of course there will be further attrition, some kids are gonna graduate, no? Current roster has 12 or 13 seniors.

    It’s going to take Geoff a few years to get the personnel he needs to run the Offense and D he wants. These guys leaving just opens up a few more spots for this year.

    Bonds was hurt day one and stayed that way. Boe was a last minute Sewak reach.

    Jarrett Cole shows in the 247 transfer portal, which is unofficial, but not the others. I believe we may be looking at medicals or simply "moving on" from football for the others.

    I wouldn't be opposed to getting some underclassmen transfers on OL. I don't want another rental that is gone after a year. We need to build depth there and not just freshman depth.

    We need graduate transfers who can play immediately or we need the 2020 recruiting cycle
