Fact: James spoke to Coach Gonzalez on the 13th who said call back tomorrow morning first thind and speak to Coach Meyer . Urban was not on campus at the time.

Fact: James called on the 14th and spoke to Urban when he was told to come to FNL's and work out and if all was well they would move on from there.

Fact: James not only didnt show for FNL's but didnt even call to say he wouldnt be there or why.

Another point of note is that James commited to UF on the say of the spring game. One week later he backed out of the commitment and went on to start questionong the spread in some local papers. He then decided he wanted back in and instead of talking to the staff first talked to the papers as did his coach which is when all the different reports started to leak. The idiots at Gatorcountry are so hard up to finally break a commitment story that they ran with it knowing the staff hadnt said yes yet.

In the end the point is that if the kid really wanted to come to UF he had his chances but wanted to play the game and as we've learded from the Zebrie Sanders of the world after while that will get you burned. At least hes going to a good school though.

UGA is like Lady Gaga, only a few want her?

Yeah that doesn't work very well with our recruiting classes and end of year results.. that sorta misses.. maybe a different team like ut.. however the funny thing is this kid hasn't been called back and now he is angry and you know the saying about someone scorned.. i wonder if the head coach will ban uf?

Kid did it to himself not the other way around. If the coach bans us than so be it. Floridas full of talent.

I can honestly say, with full confidence and 100% conviction, that I would not lay with Lady GaGa in the biblical sense. She is about as off-putting and unsexy as Amy Winehouse.

I actually can't find one redeeming quality about her. Her music is terrible, her wigs are worse, and she dresses like a busted Daytona stripper.

Man I wouldnt touch Amy Winehouse with a 10 foot pole.. She is FUGLY, i mean disgusting plus she has disgusting teeth. But Gaga aint that bad, I couldn't say gaga is hot but i think shes one of those ladies who's attractive in a weird kinda way like i said

Bottom Line.... I would....

The drama is over for Atlantic wide receiver James Louis. After a confusing past few days, Louis is finished with the Gators and gave Ohio State his verbal commitment.

Louis spent his junior season and time this spring and summer doing his homework on all of his scholarship options; taking the time to really see what programs had to offer and how he would fit in at each school. He resisted committing early, instead waiting until mid-July to make his decision.

When he called Florida to inform the school that the Gators were his pick, the coaching staff was happy, but head coach Urban Meyer asked him not to talk about his decision with the media for a few days. Louis didn’t really think much about that comment, until this past week.

After being unable to attend Florida’s Friday Night Lights Camp, Louis started to see numerous stories popping up online about how Florida wasn’t going to accept his commitment and how he might have to wait until the staff saw who else ended up committing. That set off alarms in his head and he immediately began calling and e-mailing Meyer and his coaching staff.

After five or so days of silence from Florida’s end, Louis said to heck with it and called the Ohio State coaches to let them know he will be a Buckeye next year.

“It was really frustrating,” Louis said. “I wasn’t just going to sit around and wait for [Florida].”

Louis and Atlantic coach Andre Thaddies said after news surfaced that Louis had decided to go to Ohio State, now the Florida coaching staff has called and e-mail numerous times. Louis hasn’t returned any of those calls or e-mails saying, “it’s too late for that.”

Thaddies said the situation is just another lesson for players about how colleges work the recruiting game.

Louis agreed saying most people don’t realize that a school may only have 18 or so scholarships to give, but offer scholarships to 40-50 kids knowing that not all of them will accept. When the number of commitments start getting close to the actual scholarship numbers it can generate some pretty unpleasant situations between schools and their recruits.

Yeah great article except where it does not mention that he 100% commited to UF at the spring game and backed out a week later. Every Gator site knew about it and everyone had commitment stories written and ready to run the moment he went public. The only one he has to blame is himself.
