With that kind of speed, I think we could put him the slot from time to time and get him the ball in space. There's no way he gets doubled outside. Bringing in guys like this only makes our solid offense even better.

I haven't read this anywhere but it seems like it's down to us and Florida. Even if you throw LSU in there, I think our depth chart situation looks the best.

Florida took two RB's last class and we didn't take any.

According to 247 Florida has six on roster with one RB committed. LSU has eight RB's on roster.

We have 5 RB on roster and one committed. The one we got committed is a totally different RB than Valentine.

I'll save you some time. He's great. We like him. He starts showing interest. We become his #1 one for a day. One of our rivals will see this and then start to show interest. He'll string our staff along for a while. He'll commit to said rival. We as fans will then claim the next guy on our list was better anyway. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Embarrassing fragility sure isn't an attractive characteristic...especially in an adult male.

What happens is that a higher profile program gets interested in a guy we evaluated months earlier and offered because they lost their #1 guy to a rival program. It's always been that way. Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win. In the past we lost out too frequently. That has to change if Muschamp is going to be successful.

I feel like our staff has been the lead evaluators for a lot of programs over the last two cycles.

The plus side of all this is that we have great evaluators on staff and that we are ahead of most teams in offering players and building relationships. We may not land a lot of the big names right now, but winning coupled with early evaluations will ultimately pay off.
