COMMITMENT ALERT: Was Desmond Parks reading my blog?

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.

Since Desmond obviously reads this blog, let me be the first one to welcome him to Gator Nation. WELCOME Mr. Parks. UF has excellent TE's recently. Ben Troupe is on an NFL roster and UF's current TE's are likely headed for sunday playing time. I'm sure Steve Adazzio figured into your decision. We can't wait to see you on campus.

No!!! Gator Clause wrote about the position on the same day gator land was voted the #1 party school. (Notice it wasn't education) You never use a TE so I don't have any reason to believe he is attending school to play FB, must be the beer. Better check his blood level.

Gator Land, see you shortly.



I've read it all now. A Georgia fan making fun of UF for being a party school. Ummm, ever been to Athens?


The 2 TE position play is a great idea. I always thought our TE position was not used enough. I think this will open up the field and allow Ingrim and Hernandez to do damage. These 2 guys are 2 great recievers from that position we have to use that strength in order to open up our running, and passing game
