No Gator fan wants to see kicker Eddy Pineiro go. But that day will inevitably come, and do Florida has found his future replacement.
Dan Mullen has flipped kicker Evan McPherson (Fort Payne, AL) from Mississippi State, where he initially recruited and landed a commitment from him. McPherson, an Under Armour All American, also had offers from Miami, Rutgers, Kentucky and Nebraska.
Soon after Mullen landed the Florida job, he extended an offer to McPherson and invited him to Gainesville for an official visit. McPherson took that visit this week and was sold.
Mullen and his assistants still have a long way to go in order to salvage this recruiting cycle, but this is definitely a good way to kick off the home stretch.
