Meyer believes national championship will help with late recruiting boost



When Florida coach Urban Medyer walks into a recruit's home these days and says come to Florida and you may have a chance to win multiple championships, it's not just a sales pitch.

Which is why Meyer said he'll be even more selective than usual with the remaining four or five scholarship he has to give.

"We want to make sure it's the right four, because usually recruiting classes are made with your last four or five that you pick up,'' Meyer said. "The last week has been really good for Florida and recruiting. We were on the phone actually the day of the (BCS) game, had many phone calls with top recruits and I've heard from several of them (since). So this will be a tremendous boost. . . What Florida has to offfer a young man, let's compare us against any other school - academically, lifetstyle, the location - it's coing to be very good. We're going to have a very good recruiting class.''

Florida has six of its recruits already attending classes. Early enrollees include: OL Nick Alajajian (6-4, 280), LB Jon Bostic (6-1, 218),
DB Dee Finley (6-1, 193), OL Jonathan Harrison (6-4, 290), DT Edwin Herbert (6-3, 295) and TE Desmond Parks (6-4,218).
