This isn't early in the recruiting process where a kid came into camp and impressed the coaches enough to get an offer before anyone else has really evaluated him.

What I see here is a class that is mostly filled, and then a late offer going out to a back up plan after our top target flips to our interdivisional rival.

For the record I believe Muschamp and staff know what they're doing and are great evaluators. And I also believe they're doing all they can. But to me, this (along with Leggette) falls in line more with having to get a guy that just fills a need, instead of being able to get a frontline SEC starter type.

And sometimes the 5 star kids are busts. But for the most part the ratings work. However, they do not tell you whether a player will fit your scheme. They fail on the tweeners sometimes as well.

I don't see this as a reach, I see it more as a situation where the numbers got depleted this year, graduation is hitting hard, and we need to get an extra DB or two.

If the staff likes him, bring him in.

He’s also coached by Arturo Freeman. His ranking. Similar to Rashad Fenton. There are a ton of quality DBs in South Fla. if TRb and Champ have evaluated and offered, then the kid is legit.

As far as Iím concerned, having multiple other schools offer thereafter is proof enough that they are better than their current rankings and will probably receive a bump in the future

Just watch his 4 game highlight on hudl.
Clearly has the quick twitch muscles Muschamp has harped on since he got here.
Also showed a quick back peddle and change in direction.

From a pure athletic standpoint, not sure why he is not ranked higher. The Boston College offer is indicitive of the type of character he is...and Stoops and Kentucky love getting those guys that have chips on their shoulders....we could use a few more guys like that.

Well, that sucks butt if true. Of the three, I would rather see him go North than to cheating Clemmy or UcheaT. Something tells me itís a bidding war between the latter schools.

Rankings are still important, but for a player on the cusp of an offer personal evaluations are crucial.

He is not visiting us this weekend now. He is going back to Michigan for an OV. Speculation is he may commit on his visit as the UM insiders stated he attempted to commit on his last visit and was told to hold off.

Who is the fall back guy for the fall back guy? Then again our insiders say he is a silent to us. Who really knows?
