Solomon Patton has a good feeling about Dunkley


Mobile, Ala., Murphy receiver, and Florida commit, Solomon Patton hasn’t interacted with many uncommitted recruits this season, but he’s developed a good relationship with Pahokee receiver Chris Dunkley. The two have communicated a few times this season and each time, Patton tries to get him to join him in Florida’s 2010 class.

“I message him on Facebook and tell him Florida is where it’s at,” Patton said.

Patton said he’s been in touch with Dunkley — outside of just Facebook — for most of the season. Patton said Dunkley hasn’t told him about him officially committing or being committed to Florida, but he said he feels the Gators have a good shot at landing him.

“I’m thinking that he might be coming to Florida,” Patton said.
