Randle is scheduled to play Friday after a week of full contact practice. Donovan watched him work out today and said Julius was trying to tear the rim off.
Good to know Billy is still in the thick of Randles recruitment. This makes me feel better about our chances. I know JRs mom loves Billy and that is crucial to our chances especially with the distance between TX and UF
Whether we get Randle or not, there is no doubt BD gave it his best shot!
Thought his recovery was still a ways away.
Good to hear.
Beatings will continue until morale improves
We need Randle! Patric Young is gone after this year from what I'm hearing.
If we miss on Randle, we need a transfer big that can come in and play immediately like an Oriakhi or Birch. Front court depth will be an issue again next year especially if we have an injury! In Billy I trust!
I don't agree with "need". Really, really want though! Harris, Walker, Yeguette, and Prather is a pretty solid frontcourt group, and Billy has also proven time after time that he can be successful with some 3 and even 4 guard lineups. I do think Randle could be the difference between a really good team and a great team though.

With Pats performace the other night he is skyrocketing up NBA scouts charts. As long as he is consistent he is a lock for the 1st rd. NBA GMs like scouts will highly value Pats physical presence. They will likely view him as a player who can immediately contribute as a bench big a give 10-15 min a game. Crazy how all it took was one great performance on a big stage to relaunch his value
The transfer market could get interesting if the potential rules the NCAA is discussing are passed and a player with a decent GPA can transfer without sitting out for a year.
Don't forget about DFS!
Winningest Program in College Football since 1990!
Didn't forget him. He'll be our best player next year besides Kasey. I just didn't include him because I consider him a true 3 rather than a 3/4.
If we fall short of Final Four I think Pat will be back for his senior yr.
I've heard differently!! Where are you ''hearing'' that from?
Interesting because I'm hearing the exact opposite on Young
I don't think it really matters what people are hearing now on Young. His stock could raise significantly after the NCAA tourney.
he's not Jeff....FYI
Would be amazing!
I don't get this...is JR planning on playing center? Pardon my ignorance, but can someone enlighten me what our starting lineup would look like if JR commits and PY stays? Also, if PY leaves and JR commits?
I'm hearing what he said! In a recent interview he said he's focused on finishing this last year at Florida! Also, my buddy works in the UF athletic office. He tells me what he hears. He was a manager for Billy D at Marshall then followed him to UF.
Bullis you don't know me and that's fine I don't know you either. However, you don't know what you're talking about all the time. That being said we are all on the same team... Go Gators!
I do agree with this....Elam was all set to return and told people he was toward end of season....
I agree as well. It doesn't matter what we hear until the season is over and it's time for Pat to decide. Selfishly, I hope he returns, but next years draft is going to be LOADED! The difference between 1st and 2nd round contracts is huge!
yep, 2nd rd contracts are not guaranteed
they're not guaranteed per the CBA but almost all the 2nd round picks get guaranteed money, some multiple years some only guaranteed money for the 1st yr with club options.
whether pat goes this year or next....he will get paid...he's not a borderline talent...hes got all the intangibles and that million dollar word "Potential"...he will be taken care of...
He was leaning that way not too long ago kb. So you are not off the mark too much. Might want to check in again. Suggest being a little more discreet with your contacts, maybe PM that kind of info.!
I'll go with my sources which updated me a couple of weeks ago.
Now I will say this - if he gets a call & they tell him he's a top 5 lottery g'tee - $$$ can be very persuasive & make him consider his options more closely!
It's prolly best to say no one, even himself can say for sure today. Gotta take care of biz first! There's plenty of time to think about those things after the season is over!
