    Hi Erik,

    I just saw that Arik Gilbert decommitted from Florida and will not enroll there. While I realize the chances are near zero, any chance the SC staff reaches out to Gilbert to show him Drake London's highlight reel to show him what he could do at a school like USC?

    I'd think they'd have to. I don't really care how set you think you might be at any position, there has to be a threshold where if a guy you consider to be a five-star talent goes into the portal, you kick the tires and give it a shot.

    I just don't know enough about Gilbert to say anything about his situation at LSU or Florida or if he'd be open to coming this far away from home. But if the coaches feel good about the background and his potential in the program, you have to give it a shot.
