  1. Gator in FL says:

    Burns and Wells at 8am

  2. Joonas says:

    I don’t even remember how many years in a row now it is that I’ve followed your live coverage of signing day. Thanks again for the work you do!

  3. Gator in FL says:

    Thanks for posting the Cleveland video…

  4. Gator in FL says:

    Adam, it didnt look like Tyrie signed the NLI at the ceremony. hmmm

  5. senuod says:

    FSU is the worst….

    • senuod says:

      I’m a little surprised these two highly touted defensive recruits picked FSU over Florida. We have the statistically better defense in pretty much every category.

      Guess they were sold on competing for top of the ACC, and an easier path to a playoff berth. Oh well. See you fellas in November!

  6. Ryan D. says:

    What are the odds that we get two (Jawaan)(Jeawon)’s Taylors?! I thought you spelled it wrong at first 🙂
    Jerseys’ will be Je. Taylor and Ja. Taylor, pretty kool.

  7. SW FL Joe says:

    Not a good day for the Gators. Mac & company are getting a costly education in recruiting and keeping a class intact.

    • Joe says:

      You are entitled to your opinion but your view of the scenario is skewed.

    • Marc says:

      On what planet is this “not a good day”? I think maybe the fact that a lot of our class is already on campus is hurting us in the PR department, but it won’t hurt on the field.

  8. Richard B says:

    Is Moon’s LOI in? Can’t afford to lose him.

  9. Ryan D. says:

    Do we need to find another DT? If by some miracle we get Fulton we should get back in the Top 10. Not really concerned since we have all of the early enrollees we have. Also glad we snagged Cleveland.

  10. SW FL Joe says:

    Nelson is no longer listed on the tracker. What happened?

  11. Gatorgrad79 says:

    Robinson is just a 3 star…good luck getting playing time at bama (oh, and buh bye now). Thanks for timely info Adam!

  12. Joe says:

    We may not have won the star battle but this class is quality and has tremendous potential. I believe, 3-4 years from now, a lot of these players will be getting their names called on the big stage.

  13. Joe says:

    Hearing Shavar was having trouble with academic qualifications at UF, any substance to that Adam?
