The Gainesville Sun is reporting that Urban Meyer's first Florida recruiting class is a bust. According to the Sun, "It's almost as if the 2005 class has fallen into a black hole."
That class of 18 players is now down to only eight and only two of those players figure to be starters this season running back Kestahn Moore and wide receiver Louis Murphy, the offensive star of the spring game.
Two University of Alabama football players Brandon Deaderick, 19, and Roy Upchurch, 22, were arrested early Saturday morning on misdemeanor charges following an altercation in front of The Legacy, a bar along the UA strip. A sophomore, Deaderick, is a 6-foot-4-inch, 271-pound defensive lineman from Elizabethtown, Ky. Upchurch is a 6-foot, 191-pound sophomore running back from Tallahassee, Fla. A third University of Alabama football player was later arrested and is facing charges due to an altercation in front of a bar located just off campus early Saturday morning. Brandon Fanney, 21, was brought to the Tuscaloosa County Jail and charged with disorderly conduct.
