Recruits on Florida/LSU

The Florida Gators put on an impressive performance Saturday night as they came out on top with a 13-3 victory over LSU. Defensively the Gators completely shut down the LSU offense holding them to less than 165 yards of offense. LSU ended with 12 first downs, 66 yards rushing and 96 yards passing.

Some of the nation's top prospects were watching the impressive performance put on by the defending national champs.

Owa Odighizuwa: "It was incredible. They were flying around. It was great."

Christian Jones: "They played very well and I enjoyed watching them play. Those Gators are looking real good right now I am really feeling them. I talk to them once a week and usually talk to Coach Strong or Coach Meyer."

Ronald Powell: "Man the D played strong."

Josh Shaw: "It was a crazy atmosphere but the Gators defense was on point. Miles is funny. We all talked for about an hour he kept us laughing. Florida is still up there after my last visit I will name my top five."

Darius Cummings: "Defense wins championships, and the Gators displayed why they are a perfect example of that."

Teddy Bridgewater: "I didn't catch the game. I am wide open right now and have no list." Bridgewater is looking at the Gators as one of many potential teams. "Every school is right about even."

I also spoke with a mentor of one of the top 2011 prospects that wanted to remain anonymous at this time but did have an opinion on what he saw Saturday night.

"With a defense like that I could play quarterback. It's going to be real interesting to see what happens when they face Alabama in the Southeastern Conference championship game."

Robert Clark: "It was a good game both teams came out fighting but the Florida defense is so strong it's nearly impossible to run them over. Tebow is really Superman he is awesome. He ran that game."

Matt Elam: "The defense stepped up big time and played great. I say they win another championship easy if the defense keeps on play the way their playing. No. 22 UF bound."

Quinton Dunbar: "It was a great performance. They worked hard on both sides of the ball and came out with the victory."

Corey Brown: "It was an okay game. I was shocked Florida won. I thought LSU would win but they didn't play well at all. LSU is a solid team and they have been playing decent but not good. I thought they were looking past all those other teams and that they would come out more fired up for this game."

Charone Peake: "They impressed me a lot because that crowd was real loud."

Leon Orr: "It was a good game and it came down to had the best defense and we won that battle."

Adrian Coxson: " They played a very good game. They competed at a high level and showed that they are able to win big games in big time situations. They are very competitive."

Isaiah Crowell: "I think they did very well and everyone stepped up to the plate and handled their business."

Gideon Ajagbe: "Tebow played like a man amongst boys and the D stepped up and controlled the game. Spikes and the secondary looked like national champions. Big hits, interceptions and gang tackles."

Chris Johnson: "Being a defensive player I truly have to give them two thumbs up. The Gator defense played outstanding."

Marlin Lane: "It was a good game but I would have liked to see Mikey play."
