I love it.

Could you please make the other inside scoop stories free for just one day so a long time Gator on a fixed income can read them.

Please, please, please and please.

This is why I don't understand what parents don't see in this staff...I guess most need their ass kissed as much as their kids and feel the need to be "sold" by a snake oil salesman or someone that can be a used car salesman...the parents of Wingo seem as level headed and substantive as their son and that's impressive nowadays

There are a lot of haters regarding CDM recruiting style but I can't think of a better way to go about it than the way Mama Wingo described it. If you can't sell the merits of your program alone you're doomed to fail. Selling against someone's weaknesses seldom works. Slow and steady, no pressure.

All of the looks behind the scenes are worth the price of the subscription.

It is a great job all the way around.

I love our Gator moms. High quality people. We need to get Ms. Wingo and Ms. White together and have them give seminars to recruits parents.

The insights into this family and how they went though the recruiting process and the way the staff works was awesome...this is what makes ITG so special.

Thanks

I was against how we took the DB yesterday but getting Wingo made me feel better about it and reading this makes me feel a little better about Mullen as a recruiter.

Staff, this is a great job on telling us how it went down. These insider stories and recruiting updates are the best things on this site.

This is a good read. Thank you staff and Mrs. Wingo.

Can we count on these Seminole fans to wear orange and blue in November when we play FSU?

I can understand the frustration at times, with recruiting... but how many times did she drive home the point that Mullen & staff were genuine, transparent, honest and above board with every aspect of the program.

Another Great ITG. Thanks to Mrs Wingo for the access and honesty. Recruiting this way will yield better results in the long run. Athletes sold on our program and The #GatorStandard will be bought in day 1 coming in. Thanks again for all of the ITG stories alone which makes the subscription worth it.

Agree, really love this type article. Mrs. Wingo and Mrs. White did a great job on their stories, which not only reflected very well on the staff but on themselves as well. Go Gators!

Great read.

This is why we have to believe in Mullen. When stuff like this gets around to recruits and their families we will get back to signing great classes.

Thank you Kassidy, Mark and momma Wingo.

First of all, thank you for supporting the site by subscribing. I do appreciate you!

Then, thank you for the kind words.

I think we are going to be topping this with this year's Anonymous Player Parting Thoughts, which should start running in the next 10 days or so.

Good deal. You can tell he is getting good advice and just enough parental involvement to allow him to make his own decisions but they make sure he makes informed ones.

I love the story and how everything was handled by our staff.
