Honesty compels us to point out the recruiting Mo has dissolved and we are back to 38th class rank right now. Need to get some mo soon and stop the slide

It seems Billingsley has cooled on Florida - for the time being.  Illini visited him.  This one has been so unpredictable - who know what he'll do next.  I wouldn't feel secure with his commitment until he is actually on campus.

I think the young man, as any teenager in this hype situation, can have a great visit, or want to take all visits, etc, that a pro's and con's aren't truly weighed so to speak.

Time will tell, but I personally believe that the AD, the Football coaches, etc, are moving in the right direction, thus the good and real good players are, and will come more.  So does Billingsley want to be one of the Forefathers of the Lit Movement in Litteyville?  If so, he'll choose the Lit Orange n Blue!   :Clapping:

Cumby is a good pickup.  He can be used all over the field - has amazing speed and quickness.  Little guys like that usually play with a chip on their shoulder.

Picked up another RB commit today:
Nick Fedanzo a 3-Star recruit from Montini Catholic High School in Lombard.  Looks like a good all-around back with size.  Doesn’t have Cumby’s speed, but looks like he’s better at breaking tackles.

well two of the three guys who insiders say gave us verbals this past weekend are now committed elsewhere. Mitchell just went to Toledo.

Not ideal but still a few lines in the water
