Recruits are starting to discover that it really isn’t all about The U.
After the latest flip of 2019 4-star Offensive Tackle Michael Tarquin from Miami to Florida, the Gators have now stolen all of Miami’s offensive line commits for the 2019 cycle.
Tarquin joined 3-star offensive guard Kingsley Eguakun in making the jump to Florida’s flagship university. This was Miami’s second loss to Florida along the offensive line in only a two day span.
These two flips make up 50% of Miami’s total offensive class. This means that with only a couple weeks until early signing day, Miami now only has two offensive players committed for 2019.
Michael Tarquin’s commitment to Florida came after attending three consecutive home games and making an official visit.
To make things even sweeter, the Seminoles really aren’t doing any better and things look to get much worse.
FSU and Miami, combined, now have fewer players committed on offense than Florida has committed along the offensive line.
Florida State currently has only one offensive line commit, along with only three total offensive players committed. For a team that struggled mightily up front last season, that probably isn’t very good news.
News also broke this week that Florida State’s offensive coordinator Walt Bell has accepted the UMass head coaching job. The speculation is that he and Taggart didn’t agree on the direction of the program.
By taking the UMass job, Bell actually takes a pay cut. This is terrible news for the Seminoles, as one of their few remaining coveted commits, QB Sam Howell, is likely to flip his commitment to North Carolina.
