Urban Meyer involved and actively recruiting until further notice

It appears Florida coach Urban Meyer's indefinite leave of absence is indefinitely on hold. Meyer is "actively" recruiting this month, according to a source close to the team.

Don't expect anything to change until after National Signing Day, which falls on Feb. 3 this year. Meyer began calling prospects immediately after the recruiting deadline ended earlier this week. One long conversation he had with West Palm Beach Dwyer safety Matt Elam added more doubt to Elam's recruiting process. He committed to Florida State when news broke of Meyer's resignation but is now apparently having second thoughts after speaking with Meyer about faith. Elam is expected to enroll in school next week, wherever he goes.

Meyer and his Gators are expecting a big weekend for recruiting. The U.S. Army All-American game is on Saturday in Texas and several players could announce commitments to Florida during the game, which is on national television. Defensive end Ronald Powell of California is expected to commit to Florida and UF is hoping to land a commitment from defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd of Philadelphia, Pa. I spoke with Floyd for a few minutes during his official visit earlier this season. This guy (6-3, 310 pounds) is a beast of beasts.

On Friday, Florida interim coach Steve Addazio and assistants Scot Loeffler and D.J. Durkin, the Gators' new linebackers coach, are headed to Ohio for an in-home visit with five-star linebacker Jordan Hicks. Hicks is considering Florida, Ohio State and Texas.

In other news...
Tight end Aaron Hernandez is officially gone...Mike and Maurkice Pouncey are talking their decisions over one more time with their family before announcing their decisions...No news on Major Wright is good news that Wright will LIKELY return to school...Defensive end Carlos Dunlap is as good as gone.

Powell , Floyd And Hicks would be a filthy out of state three sweep. Land two of em and it's still a blockbuster class.

In Urban we trust

I am not hating on Urban Meyer because I am a Canes fan but what is his wife thinking right now as he lied to her and his children that he would quit? then he was quitting after bowl game, and then after recruiting season? I am trying to figure out why major recruits would trust him if he lied to his own family over and over. Its a shame because football is not the end all be all and for the good of his family, he does need to relax, take a vacation, and rest. I will be interested to see what happens once they have signed documents from players and they can't back out because of the unfair recruiting rules that are too program friendly and not in best interest of players

Randy shanannigans and jacory fumble. Nuff said.
John LOVETT?????? lmao

You guys don't know squat! Urban's wife was one of the people telling him to just take some time off. It was Urban who said it wouldn't be fair to the program. When EVERYBODY said stay and take time off, he realized that we want him, even at half speed for few months. He was estatic and his wife supports it 150%..

Jo, great bereaking news...I think I said eveything you have here above on one of my posts last week...

Hey, Bubble Has Burst, are you serious? Duh U hasn't even won the ACC since they joined. Then their "ferocious D" couldn't beat Wisconsin. If any bubble has burst, it's UM's fans and their inability to realize that times aren't changing, they changed years ago. Jacory'curl throws picks like he's Robin Hood and the other team is poor. Like 17 pics this year alone? Lol! Tebow had 16 in his entire career!!!

No coach
3 star recruits
500 RBs
Leonard Hankerson--scrub
No real stadium
No real campus

Sounds like a great place? Where do I sign up to play for this joke?

I appreciate the work of all people who share information with others.

Random 3 star recruit is a very knowledgeable contributer obviously. This guy knows his stuff.

Please have patience with the fans from the U. At this point their probably mainlining Xanax just to get through the day.

By the way, dis you notice that UM went O for 3 in possible commitments at the Army all star game? You guys need to wake up and realize that with your Athletic Budget, No Stadium, and a small Alumni base from which to get contributions you will never again be what you were. I'm not hatin', I'm just sayin be real!!

Good Luck against FSU next year, you're gonna need it.

Go Gators!!
