GAINESVILLE -- Does anyone other than me find it mildly interesting that Florida got a commitment from a tight end on the same day Gator Clause wrote about the position?
Recruiting websites got word earlier today that Desmond Parks of South Carolina recently committed to Florida. Parks is a (6-4, 225-pound) senior at Greer High. Greer has a pretty good football tradition, so we assume the kid can play a little bit.
So, was Parks playing around on the Internet on Monday, searching for a reason to commit to the Gators, when he happened upon this very blog. On Monday we talked all about how Florid coach Urban Meyer can't wait to see the Gators' new two-tight end sets in action once fall camp begins on Monday.
Nah, doubt it. Parks probably looked at the Gators' 2009 roster and realized only one scholarship tight end (Aaron Hernandez) will still be on the team. Florida has nine commitments so far from the class of 2009.
--IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T HEARD...Florida is now the reigning party school in the nation, according to a magazine (Princeton Review) published by a bunch of people who we know for a fact have no clue what they're talking about when it comes to partying. More on this tomorrow, maybe.
