…He said he talked with an unnamed Florida assistant coach around 8:30 p.m. and got Florida’s side of things. They said Gaines hadn’t been speaking with a Gators coach the past few weeks. Instead, it was someone else.

Better than the guy who set up a press conference at his HS and committed to Cal a few years ago without any contact from anyone.

His HS coache, he knew that he really sucked, checked into the matter himself and busted his shenanigans.

At least he has a good attitude about the prank. It was kind of cruel, to say the least.
