I can remember that day
oh what a day that was
LORD FORGIVE ME FOR THE GOON DADDY IS COMING OUT TONIGHT
Yeah, Elam and Powell to go along with Floyd in that game.
Elam, Powell and Floyd in one day. Just after Easley and a couple others at the under armor game. Yeah, that was a good week. I still think we missed on more than a few on NSD though. One of them being Jordan Hicks to Muschamp and co. Then there was Christian Green and Christian Jones. Though I don't think anyone thought Green was going anyway but fsu. Missing out on those two LBs hurt, but the prior year, we had Jenkins and Bostic.
Walk softly but carry a big stick
The funny thing is I had just started following recruiting around then (I know, late to the game) and was like, "Man, this is easy....Everyone is a Gator"
And Easley goes from like top 250 to top 10 on a couple sites after the UA week.
To paraphrase the great SOS, Urban recruited a #1 class and it almost killed him.
2009 and 2010 were the first years I followed gator recruiting but I didn't know who these guys were before they committed. I would just see the bottom where it says "Considering: UF, USC, ND....." and be like I hope this kid picks UF. Now we all know where most of these kids are going months in advance. 2010 was great though because it seemed like everyone was committing to UF.
I was same way. 2010 was first year starting to look at recruiting and only then I looked at signing day and didn't have any idea who anyone was but that we got a lot of high ranked players. I do remember seeing Tebow commit on tv too and thought that was cool, little did I know how huge a impact he would make here.
Still hate the fact that Dorsey didn't make it in...that kid kept our class together when Urbs had his heart burn.
I thought we were going to win another national title after the class Meyer signed that year.
I was in Atlanta at the time, watching the game on a projector and each time they were about to commit. I would put on my Gator hat at the same time. Lol Boy did I jump for joy when Floyd, Powell, and Elam put the Gator hat on.
Funny thing is I was in Georgia on a recruiting trip to Albany State when Percy Harvin committed as well.
I started following in 2011, when it seemed like no one wanted to be a Gator.
But I do remember seeing Floyd on First Take doing an interview saying he was going to UF. Didn't realize he was going to be that good!
This was my reaction that day.
Y'all remember M Taylor ballin out in the UA gm?
Then he did the interview on First Take explaining why he flipped from Tenn.
That's pretty funny

Yeah I got a chuckle out of that as well.
was it true we turned away jackson jeffcoat in that class?
yep..jeffcoat and Tony Jefferson.
Why? Cause Powell and Elam?

Mind control Luke.. Mind control.. Lol Thank me later
Not really sure what was the reason behind Jeffcoat but Elam was the reason Tony Jefferson couldn't commit or take OV. It worked out well for us in the end...Elam lived up to his 5* billing and Farrel was right about the wholes in TJ game. Still would have loved to see Elam and TJ back there together but Evans became a solid FS for us.
