The signing day of high school football players has become a very big deal in recent years. Last year, Joe McKnight, who was ranked second by Rivals, committed to Southern California after a heated battle between LSU and USC.
As I've started to get a grasp of the top recruits this year, I didn't need to look far to see, in my mind, a poor man's version of McKnight. His name...Andre DeBose.
McKnight was a running back that could play receiver and return punts. DeBose, on the other hand, is just a receiver—hence the term "poor man's version."
If you've read anything on the Gator recruiting boards, you know that Andre DeBose is a top priority for UF, especially since two big receivers will be leaving after this season.
