All of Muschamp's defensive recruits are gone. The shark humper has to do it with his own recruits now. And i dont think they are good enough to get back to Atlanta

yep.. that's what florida guys and others want to ignore.  that defense is going to take a step back and that will put even more pressure on that horrible offense.

Here was a decent post from a UF guy on another thread discussing it:

Quote

That means Chauncey Gardner who played safety well last year as a back up will have to move from corner, where he was going to play in 2017, and move back to safety next to Nick Washington. He is a much better cover guy than Harris but no where close to what Harris was in run support. 

The next guy up at corner is probably the JUCO Putu or RS Fr McArthur Burnett. Neither have really played the position much. 

UF is one injury to Washington or Gardner from having inexperience Soph Jaewon Taylor starting at safety. 

The big freshmen class UF got in the secondary last year better come in ready to play or UF is in real trouble on the back end for the first time since 2007.

Was taking a look back at the last 2 recruiting cycles for UF:

2016:

Chauncey Gardner - top 50 overall recruit, #4-5 corner depending on the service - saw playing time as backup last year

Behind him, it was not a star studded DB class: J. Taylor a 3* safety around #350 overall in the class, Q. Lenton rated a little lower at 600ish, and J. Putu and C. McWilliams coming in significantly lower around an 82-83 rating.

 

2017:

Better haul here with 3 guys at mid-high 4* 91-93 ratings:

Christopher Henderson - top 15ish corner nationally

Brad Stewart - top 20 corner nationally

Marco Wilson - somewhere between 20-30 nationally at corner

I know UGA was going after Wilson for a while, don't think we were ever really in it for the other two.

Couple of 3* guys brought in as well, but would be more surprised if they were able to step in to playing time as early as the above players.

 

UF going to be playing very thin at the DB position this year it looks like. If anyone listens to the Glory UGA podcast, those guys were just talking about how UF essentially manned up on UGA receivers last year with a single high safety look... probably going to be a lot harder to do that this year I'd imagine.

UF's Marcell Harris done for the year. Torn achilles. http://floridagators.com/news/2017/7/20/football-marcell-harris-to-miss-2017-season-with-torn-achilles-tendon.aspx

Unfortunate for him... Wishing him a speedy recovery.

huge huge loss.. they have lost so much on defense and then one of the best players is gone for the year.. i hope him the best in his recovery, but for florida that is a very tough loss.

Lulz... the NCAA is such a sham. Good for this kid. Their comments to him were not only could he not feature himself as a college athlete, but he had to remove all football related videos from his site (including no videos of throwing a football to friends on a beach)... beyond overreaching.
