Sharrif Floyd clears up Urban Meyer "dream from God" story



The story has circulated on recruiting websites and sports blogs all over the nation.

If you're really into recruiting, or even have a passing interest, you've probably read somewhere that during the recruitment of Philadelphia DT Sharrif Floyd, UF coach Urban Meyer told him that he had gotten a sign from God in a dream that Floyd should play for the Gators.

Bloggers all over the place took shots at Meyer for "faking" a dream from God to gain a recruit - albeit one considered the best at his position.

Turns out, according to Floyd, Meyer never said such a thing.

Floyd gave his side of the story to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
