    Just read Kelvin is listed as the #1 RB in the class. I’m sure he’s extremely good- I just hope his ratings isn’t inflated because of him playing against weaker competition in a smaller school. Regardless it feels good to have such a prospect!

      …And right when I said that I saw the update with position rankings. whoops. Either way really excited about it all.

    Adam Lane is so underrated its criminal.

  3. John S says:

    Very solid so far, and we are in great position for some the top ranked talent as well. The Offensive line commits don’t rank that highly, but if you look at their offers you see their talent.

    Muschamp is doing a great job, and this year’s class want to be gators. Come on Tunsil!!!

    Couldn’t be happier at this point. Lock up our class early and often then who cares about NSD aside from the faxes rolling in. These guys want to bleed orange and blue and I’m glad to see the 3 hat monty is done with under the champ regime.

    why is it that almost all of our guys have much higher rankings on ESPN than rivals?

    • sjkoepp says:

      I was wondering this as well…

    • That’s just how it is. Evaluating high school players is not an exact science. You have different evaluators on each network doing their rankings. Rivals has been found to be the most accurate over the years by a slim margin.
