NCF On The Trail: Deandre Goolsby

Gators have needs to fill in recruiting

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- With a 15-player senior class and seven players transferring or leaving since the end of the season, Florida has plenty of holes to fill.

Considering all seven of those departing players were from the offensive side of the ball, it's obvious where much of the Gators' recruiting efforts are focused.

Florida has 23 scholarships available with cornerback Louchiez Purifoy forgoing his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

Here's a breakdown of Florida's biggest needs in restocking its roster with talent.

Will Grier
Miller Safrit/ESPNWill Grier is the nation's No. 2-ranked quarterback.
Quarterback: The Gators have a starter in Jeff Driskel, who is expected to recover from a broken bone in his lower leg that required surgery. Their most experienced backup, Tyler Murphy, surprised the coaching staff when he decided to transfer, but Skyler Mornhinweg remains. He started UF's last three games of the season as a redshirt freshman, but it remains to be seen how Mornhinweg will fit into Florida's new offense.

The numbers are obviously low with just two scholarship QBs on the roster, but help is on the way. Florida expects Will Grier, the nation's No. 2-ranked quarterback, to enroll in early January. Now that Murphy has departed, expect the Gators to add a second quarterback to their 2014 class. A dual-threat QB who can bring a more athletic dimension and schematic flexibility to the position makes the most sense. Coach Will Muschamp will let his new offensive coordinator find the right fit.

Offensive line: Florida graduated three starters and lost reserve Ian Silberman to transfer along with two others who were buried at the bottom of the depth chart. That's six departures -- a lot for any season. Muschamp likes to have at least 15 offensive linemen on his roster, so expect a handful of newcomers. Offensive line has been a sore spot for the last two seasons, and injuries decimated Florida in 2013. The Gators return five players with starting experience, but depth must be created as only four other scholarship linemen remain. With so few bodies, at least one of the incoming prospects can expect to make the two-deep roster.

Florida needs the most help on the edges, which is why the headline OL commitment is David Sharpe, the nation's No. 2-ranked offensive tackle prospect. The Gators recently signed Drew Sarvary, a 6-foot-6, 310-pound juco OT who could also play inside. Of all the newcomers, he'll have the inside track to play first. Florida also has pledges from three of the nation's top-30 guard prospects in Nolan Kelleher (6-5, 310), Travaris Dorsey (6-3, 314) and Dontae Angus (6-5, 310).

Offensive skill positions: Florida's QBs haven't had much time to develop in the passing game in recent years, and some of the blame can be directed at the offensive line. But nothing is more obviously missing in the Gator offense than playmakers at the wide receiver and tight end positions. The Class of 2013 saw five talented freshmen WRs join the program, three of whom saw action. But with two senior starters leaving, it's imperative that UF continue to add talent and numbers to its receiving corps. The Gators' top wide receiver commit for 2014 is Ermon Lane, the No. 2 WR prospect in the country. Keeping him in the fold is a top priority.

UF also has pledges from former FSU commit Ryan Sousa and Moral Stephens. At 6-3 and 200 pounds, Stephens would give UF a prospect with some size who could play H-back or grow into a full-time role at tight end. Florida has just three scholarship TEs on its roster, but has commitments from DeAndre Goolsby and C'yontai Lewis, both three-star prospects. The Gators have plenty of talented options returning at tailback but lack a game-breaking home-run hitter who can gain the edge. That's why it's so important they hang onto the commitment of Dalvin Cook, the nation's No. 4 RB prospect. Coaches presume he would have a role as a true freshman in 2014.

Defensive line: Florida is in good shape with 10 returning scholarship players. But Muschamp's multiple-scheme defense, which uses 4-3 and 3-4 alignments up front, puts a heavy emphasis on defensive linemen making plays and disrupting the opponent's offense. Florida has three commitments -- DT Khairi Clark, DE Taven Bryan and DE Justus Reed. Bryan could end up on offense, so the object of much of Muschamp's hard work on the recruiting trail is adding another difference-maker who can rush the passer.

Cornerback: The Gators graduated two cornerbacks and are losing Purifoy to the NFL. If he is joined by fellow starter Marcus Roberson, who is projected as a first-round pick in ESPN Insider Todd McShay's first mock draft, there will likely be immediate playing time available. That's Muschamp's sales pitch. It's also why Florida is trying to load up on DB prospects. The nation's No. 10 athlete, J.C. Jackson, is committed, as are Chris Lammons, Quincy Wilson and Duke Dawson. Wilson and Dawson could end up at safety, so Florida must close strong in adding at least one more pure cornerback with the talent to contribute right away. Florida hit the jackpot last year in signing All-SEC first-team CB Vernon Hargreaves III. Few prospects enter the college ranks as technically skilled and prepared as he, but the Gators are hoping another recruiting bounty will keep the pipeline of impact cornerbacks flowing.

Weekend recruiting wrap: SEC

Lots of news around the Southeastern Conference over the weekend. There were a few commitments, and Alabama hosted several visitors for its big win over LSU. Here’s a closer look at some of the top storylines in the SEC this weekend.

Gators land three-star TE Goolsby

November, 8, 2013

PM ET
Help is on the way for Florida’s struggling passing attack. The Gators landed a commitment from athletic tight end DeAndre Goolsby (Derby, Kan./Derby) on Friday afternoon in a ceremony at his school.

Goolsby chose Florida over offers from Kansas State, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Ohio State. The three-star tight end took official visits to all five of his finalists before announcing his decision.

[+] EnlargeDeAndre Goolsby
Jeff Barlis/ESPNTight end DeAndre Goolsby committed to Florida, adding to a position of great need for the Gators.
Florida has had essentially no production from tight ends this season. In fact, Florida’s tight ends have combined for two catches for only 13 yards. As a junior, the 6-foot-4, 235-pound athlete made 42 receptions for 605 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Goolsby, with added bulk and proper coaching, has a chance to develop into a productive target for the Florida offense.

"Goolsby is a good prospect who can eventually offer some versatility in how [he's] utilized and be a productive receiving target,” his Recruiting Nation scouting report reads. “[He] should also be a good special-teams contributor. We don't see an immediate contributor as he needs to develop further physically and his ability to contribute will be limited until he strengthens his game as a blocker, but he has good ability and displays upside to be a good player at the next level.”

The Gators have 15 commitments, including nine ranked in the ESPN 300. Florida has offensive skilled position commitments from No. 2 dual-threat quarterback Will Grier (Davidson, N.C./Davidson), No. 4 running back Dalvin Cook (Miami/Central) and No. 2 wide receiver Ermon Lane (Homestead, Fla./Homestead). Goolsby could become another weapon the Gators can utilize beginning in 2014.

Goolsby joins three-star prospect C’yontai Lewis (Tuscaloosa, Ala./Northridge) as Florida tight end commits. Current Florida tight end Colin Thompson has a chronic foot injury, second-year tight end Kent Taylor has not played a down this season and the Gators' two other tight ends -- Tevin Westbrook and Clay Burton -- are converted defensive players.

Both Lewis and Goolsby will have a chance to work their way into Florida’s tight end rotation.

It’s been a busy week in recruiting in the SEC already, but the beginning of the week is only the start with two announcements Friday that could impact SEC recruiting class, and the annual LSU-Alabama showdown that draws almost as many top prospects as a postseason all-star game.

The Early Offer is RecruitingNation's regular feature, giving you a daily dose of recruiting in the mornings. Today's offerings: What a difference a few months make for the Missouri Tigers and their efforts to land top talent in St. Louis; one of the nation’s top tight end prospects is slated to announce on Friday, and he still has everybody guessing; is Tennessee in line to steal a commitment away from one of the best defensive tackles in the junior college ranks?

Missouri comes up big in St. Louis
There has been a lot of grumbling by Missouri fans over the last year about a perceived lack of success in St. Louis by Gary Pinkel and the Tigers. However, after the Tigers’ fast start on the field this season many of those worries diminished. They have all but evaporated now after St. Louis DeSmet four-star offensive lineman Andy Bauer committed on Monday. The Under Armour All-American had been a long-time commitment to Ole Miss after originally committing to the Tigers early in the process. He decided again on Monday to reverse course for what looks to be the final time, helping give the Tigers their first ESPN 300 commitment and second four-star prospect.


An exciting weekend on the field for Big Ten schools translated over to the recruiting trail. There wasn't much action in terms of commitments, but it set the tone for the future for many teams.

Here is a look at what happened around the conference.

SEC recruiting storylines: Oct. 31 

October, 31, 2013
10/31/13
2:00
PM ET

Will it be tricks or treats in the SEC? Let’s take a look at the recruiting news and big visits around the SEC:

[+] EnlargeDalvin Cook
Tom Hauck for Student SportsAfter visits to Texas and Florida State, Arkansas takes its shot at Florida commit Dalvin Cook.
Big visit weekend for Arkansas
After an open week, Arkansas will play host to No. 11 Auburn Saturday in what will be a big visit weekend for the Razorbacks. Bret Bielema and staff are set to host No. 20 overall and Florida commit Dalvin Cook (Miami/Central), ESPN 300 safety Steven Parker (Jenks, Okla./Jenks), four-star linebacker and TCU commit Jimmie Swain IV (Olathe, Kan./Olathe North) and four-star offensive tackle Frank Ragnow (Victoria, Minn./Chanhassen).

Cook visited Texas in September and Florida State last weekend and will likely take all of his official visits before shutting the door completely on a flip from the Gators.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound Parker is considering the Razorbacks along with Oklahoma, Oklahoma State along and Texas A&M, where he will visit Nov. 8.
The Razorback are very much in the mix for tight end DeAndre Goolsby (Derby, Kan./Derby). The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Goolsby has made official visits to Oklahoma, Florida, Ohio State and Arkansas and is scheduled to be at Kansas State this weekend.

Miami-FSU has SEC implications
Two of the official visitors in Tallahassee over the weekend are top targets of SEC programs. No. 11 Tony Brown (Beaumont, Texas/Ozen) and No. 48 Josh Malone (Gallatin, Tenn./Station Camp) will be making official visits to FSU this weekend, and the SEC eyes will be upon them. While Malone has had the visit scheduled for months, the 6-foot, 195-pound Brown just decided to officially visit Tallahassee this weekend, and that will certainly have the attention of LSU and Texas A&M. When looking at Malone, this is FSU’s chance to sway the Tennessee lean who has also made official visits to Georgia and Ohio State with Clemson scheduled for Nov. 23. Seminoles commit Markell Pack (Purvis, Miss./Purvis) will also be making his official visit to Florida State. While he remains committed to Jimbo Fisher and staff, Ole Miss remains in the picture for the No. 92 prospect.

Among the unofficial visitors scheduled to be in Tallahassee Saturday who are highly coveted by SEC programs are No. 9 Marlon Humphrey (Hoover, Ala./Hoover), No. 25 Malachi Dupre (River Ridge, La./John Curtis), No. 61 Travis Rudolph (West Palm Beach, Fla./Cardinal Newman). Dupre is considered an LSU lean and Rudolph an FSU lean.

In the class of 2015, No. 6 overall Martez Ivey (Apopka, Fla./Apopka) and No. 48 CeCe Jefferson (Glen Saint Mary, Fla./Baker County) are scheduled to be on campus, among dozens of others.

Alabama pushing Michigan for Hand
Five-star defensive end and No. 6 overall Da’Shawn Hand (Woodbridge, Va./Woodbridge) made an official visit to Alabama over the weekend, and early indications are the Crimson Tide knocked it out of the park as expected and have cut into Michigan’s sizeable lead following his September visit to Ann Arbor. A final official visit, to Florida on Nov. 9 is all that remains for the 6-foot-4, 262-pound Hand before announcing his decision Nov. 14.

Texas A&M flips a big one
Texas A&M will lose its senior left tackle to the NFL after this season, and junior right tackle Cedric Ogbuehi will have a decision to make following the season, even though a return for his senior season looks likely at this point. Losing one for sure, and the possibility of both starting tackles following Luke Joeckel’s departure last year has made the future of the position a big priority for the Aggies in the 2014 class. On Monday, Kevin Sumlin and staff flipped former Arkansas commit Jermaine Eluemunor (Rockaway, N.J./Lackawanna College) following his official visit to College Station over the weekend. After missing out on Tennessee commit Dontavius Blair (Anniston, Ala./Garden City Community College) and the decision of Avery Gennesy (Southhaven, Miss./East Mississippi Community College) still hanging in the balance, snagging the talented Eluemunor was a big win for the Aggies.

The commitment capped an amazing 10-day run that included commitments from five-star defensive end and No. 5 overall Myles Garrett (Arlington, Texas/James Martin), No. 191 Qualen Cuningham (Chandler, Ariz./Hamilton), ESPN Junior 300 No. 10 Daylon Mack (Gladewater, Texas/Gladewater) and Eluemunor.

The nation's No. 4 prospect overall, Da'Shawn Hand (Woodbridge, Va./Woodbridge High), will make his official visit to Alabama this weekend after tripping to favorite Michigan in September. The 6-foor-4, 262-pound five-star will also officially visit Florida on Nov. 8 before announcing his decision on Nov. 14 at his high school.

Big Ten recruiting mailbag

October, 18, 2013
10/18/13
11:00
AM ET
It’s time to dip into the Big Ten recruiting mailbag and answer some of your questions. We’ll try to give everyone a chance to get their questions answered. We encourage you to send your questions by Twitter to @bbournival or @TomVH.

[+] EnlargeDamian Prince
Tom Hauck for Student SportsOT Damian Prince, who is No. 22 in the ESPN 300, no longer seems like a sure thing for Ohio State.
@darkknight1093: Does the late offer to Frank Ragnow indicate that the Ohio State staff believes Damian Prince is trending away from the Buckeyes?

Brad Bournival: I won’t speak for the Ohio State staff, but I’m almost firmly convinced the Prince-to-the-Buckeyes ship has sailed. In fact, I would put it at 95 percent right now that he signs with Maryland in February.

That’s how confident I am that Prince (Forestville, Md./Bishop McNamara) he stays in-state at the end. When a program tells you it wants you to be the face of the program like the Terrapins have, it’s hard to argue against it.

@dannograef: Who is the biggest sleeper commit in the Big Ten?

Tom VanHaaren: It’s no secret that I think highly of Minnesota running back commit Jeff Jones (Washburn, Minn./Washburn), who completed his regular season with 39 touchdowns. I think he’s a candidate, I also like Illinois commit Mike Dudek (Naperville, Ill./Neuqua Valley), Michigan commit Noah Furbush (Kenton, Ohio/Kenton) and Northwestern commit Dareian Watkins (Galion, Ohio/Galion). Penn State commit De'Andre Thompkins (Swansboro, N.C./Swansboro) is in the ESPN 300, but doesn’t get talked about enough. He’s going to do big things for the Nittany Lions.

@HoosierHolmes: How much would making a bowl help Indiana’s recruiting efforts?

Bournival: To answer that question, I send you over to Penn State where recruits have gone on record to say they won’t choose the Nittany Lions because of the inability to go to a bowl for the next two seasons.

To be more precise, winning breeds winning and attracts more attention from bigger names. The proof is in the fact the same schools in the Big Ten stay on top of the recruiting rankings for that very reason. Kevin Wilson is slowly turning the program around. If he can end the five-year bowl absence this season, don’t be surprised to see a boost in recruiting as well.

@mike_albach10: I really like Malik McDowell's size and intangibles. What do you think his ceiling is?

VanHaaren: He is ranked No. 67 overall and the No. 4 defensive tackle. He is a giant, first of all. He has slimmed down some this season, but he is still head and shoulders bigger than everyone on his team. I think McDowell (Southfield, Mich./Southfield) would make an excellent 3-technique defensive tackle for any team in a 4-3 scheme. In Michigan’s defense, he would be able to slide outside to the strongside end spot in running situations and inside to tackle on passing downs. I think he is yet to tap a lot of his potential no matter where he ends up.

@WWEFan20134: Who do you think the final six will be for the class of 2014 for Ohio State football recruiting?

Bournival: With Mike Gesicki (Manahawkin, N.J./Southern Regional) picking Penn State I only see five. The others I feel much stronger about are Raekwon McMillan (Hinesville, Ga./Liberty County), Chad Mavety (Garden City, N.J./Nassau Community College), Thomas Holley (Brooklyn, N.Y./Lincoln) and teammates Marshon Lattimore (Cleveland/Glenville) and Erick Smith.

@Collin_Stauder: Could the play of Michigan State’s defense this year be enough to possibly sway (Parrker) Westphal or McDowell?

VanHaaren: Michigan State always plays good defense, so that’s not something new for those guys. I think that’s part of what attracted them to the Spartans in the first place, so I don’t think that’s a bonus at this point that will tip the scales.

I think the Spartans probably have a better shot with Westphal (Bolingbrook, Ill./Bolingbrook) than McDowell at this point, but at the same time I still think Northwestern has a lot to say in Westphal’s recruitment as well.

The play on the field has definitely helped attract some top prospects lately, but Michigan State needs to build on the Indiana win and show more than defense to some of their targets.

@buckeyefan686: Since the Buckeyes missed out on Gesicki who do you believe they land at tight end, or would they just not take one in this class?

Bournival: I think getting a tight end is an absolute must as I’m not convinced moving Sam Hubbard (Cincinnati/Moeller) over is the solution. Even though Ohio State doesn’t utilize the tight end much, there’s not a plethora of depth at the position. Jeff Heuerman and Nick Vannett will be back next season, but Blake Thomas’ career is likely done with the Buckeyes and Marcus Baugh is unproven at this point. Expect them to make a harder push for DeAndre Goolsby (Derby, Kan./Derby), who took an official visit for the Wisconsin game.

@hartley_nick: Any negative recruiting vibes with Michigan’s struggles on the field?

VanHaaren: Not yet. It was only one game and Michigan still only has one loss. It was an emotional loss for the fans because of how deeply they dig into things and diagnose the issues in specific games.

Recruits don’t tend to go that far into things like fans do. If you were to ask a recruit what they saw in that game, they would probably tell you two teams who fought hard into four overtimes and one came out on top.

If that type of play continues, though, and Michigan doesn’t show progress, then I think you could start to see some noise. I don’t think would be any issues with the 2014 class or even the 2015 kids that have already committed. If the season goes downhill, I think you’d see the most impact on uncommitted 2015 targets, but still that doesn’t seem too likely at this point.
