Way back in 1990, Spurrier's first year at Florida we were cleaning up and getting just about everybody. James Roberson was UF's best comittment and had been comitted to them for about three weeks. On signing day he flipped to us and I believe Spurrier fired his recruiting co-ordinator, James Goodman the next day.
Yeah it was, i think the craziest part is he actually ended up running track for Cal i think.
Another was Taiwan Easterling. Nobody had ever heard of him, he was committed to Southern Miss and we actually thought they made a mistake and we landed the 4 star RB from Nortwestern Antwain Easterling, who oddly enough went to Southern Miss before he was dismissed.
1997 was crazy when we landed David Warren on NSD. He apparently called our coaching staff a couple of days before signing day and they were all busy on the phones or whatever and they had him talk to a GA. He was the USA Today Defensive Player of the Year from Texas. He never panned out in college due to some neck injury. Antone Smith was a shocker as was Lorenzo Booker. In 1998, we had been recruiting lights out were just on amazing run especially with LBs in the early early and mid 90s, but we couldn't land them for whatever reason in the late 90s. Will Witherspoon was the #1 prospect in Florida that year and I remember he was a huge target and he signed with UGA, which was a big shocker at the time.
My first year was Xavier Lee. Thought he was gonna be the shit.
Antone Smith was my first holy bleep.
Same for me. That was the first year that I REALLY started following recruiting and I was giddy when he picked FSU cause I thought for sure he was going to ND.
GO NOLES! / SCALP EM!
8th grade was my first experience and it was with DJ Williams when he picked Miami! Wasnt really an oh crap moment or anything but was just my first experience with recruiting. Been hooked ever since!
