The saga of Junior Pomee continues.
The Rancho Verde tight end – profile here – who verbally committed to UCLA on July 1 after almost doing the same to Arizona, was wowed by his recent attendance at Florida’s camp, and is now very high on the Gators.
I spoke with him for a few moments yesterday, but he was just getting home from the funeral of a teammate, and I wasn’t going to push for answers. I’ll try to reach him again tonight.
To be honest, I think this is a case of a kid being allured by the hoopla and attention, and the buzz on Pomee has certainly soared. He went from legit offers from Idaho and Nevada to being courted by Florida. We’ll see how it all works out, but I wouldn’t write him off just yet.
*Special props to Bruinbeatch, who called this basically the day after Pomee verbally committed to UCLA.
*I took out the reference to Uko’s dad, which was supposed to be Uko’s coach, a reference to a failed interview attempt last November with a few blog readers. My apologies.
