See… I hate to say I told you so, but… I told you.
Muschamp is just fine on the recruiting trail, and proved it by picking up his first big offensive prospect (rumors say Brissett was taken by Weis) as a head coach at Florida.
Rumors say that Matt Jones has verbally declared himself a Gator.
He’s another example of ditching his team growing up for a rival, like Tim Jernigan, only with Jones, he made the Georgia-to-Florida exchange- slightly easier to do when you live in Florida, as Jones does.
But the Gators just magically healed the wound created when Mike Bellamy left for Clemson. I can’t really blame him- Addazio made it look like a circus with guys falling down all over the place, and Blakely wasn’t amused by the clown act and decided on Clemson.
Anyway, Jones isn’t going to be burning opponents for 80 yard TD runs like Demps or Rainey- he’s a big, power running back at 6’4 and 215. He’ll be a short yardage back, and will eventually take over for Mack Brown.
Now let’s see who else the Gators can pull in. In Muschamp’s first year of recruiting at Florida, let’s see just how well he can do.
