We Inform. You Decide.
Despite the Florida Board
of Governors' intent to create
comprehensive research uni-
versities, UF is the only "sig-
nificant national class research
university" in the-state, accord-
ing to a consultant's report on
the State University System.
The board, the governing
body for the state's 11 public
universities, asked Alceste T.
Pappas, a Connecticut-based
consultant, to look at the struc-
ture of the State University
System, said Bill Edmonds,
the board's spokesman.
Pappas will present the re-
port at the board's meeting
this week at Florida Atlantic
University, he said.
"The Board of Governors
asked her ... to look at ... how
higher education is provided
in the state of Florida to see if
there were ways we could make
the system more effective and
efficient," Edmonds said.
Edmonds said the board
gave Pappas a carte blanche to
look at anything and say any-
thing she wanted in the report.
Pappas worked on the report
for four months and just gave it
to State University System offi-
cials last week, Edmonds said.
"What we're going to do
is use this consultant's report
as a starting point for a long,
serious discussion on the State
University System and how we
can make it stronger," Edmonds

Smathers known for more than monetary donations
By JESSICA DaSILVA
When asked to recall George
Smathers, not everyone mentions
the $20 million donation he made to
UF's library system or even his 22-
year political career on Capitol Hill.
Joe Hice, UF associate vice
president of marketing and public
relations, said Smathers was a very
active alumnus of Sigma Alpha
An SAE president in the early
1970s, Hice remembers visits to the
fraternity's house from Smathers,
who died of a stroke Saturday at 93._
"When I was a student here, he
was already something of a legend
around the SAE house," Hice said.
"Whenever he was in town, he
always swung by the SAE house.
They treated him like he was part of
the gang, because he was," he said.
"Quite honestly, he had better things
to do, but maintaining that legacy
was really important to him."
Hice said what he remembers
most about Smathers, who gradu-
ated with both his undergraduate
and law degrees in 1938, was the
influence he had on a former SAE
house director after he was elected
to the U.S. Congress.
Mo Allen, the director, had been
working at SAE for about 30 years
and had always dreamed of becom-
ing a doorman at the U.S. Congress.
Knowing this, Smathers met
with his colleagues and decided to
-offer Allen, who died two years ago,
the job in Washington.
From then on, Hice said,
Smathers and Allen were "linked
together at the hip in (SAE) lore." .
SPaul Robell, a UF Foundation of-
ficial, remembers Smathers not only
as a major donor but also as a charis-
matic individual who was "just a lot
of fun to be around."
"Our fraternity's motto is
embodying the true gentle-
man, and no one exempli-
fied that more than George
Samuel M. Warfield
"He was very well-loved in the
state and very well-loved by those
who knew him," he said. "He was
... somebody you would (look at
and think), 'There's a real elegant-
SAE president Samuel M.
"Our fraternity's motto is em-
bodying the true gentleman, and
no one exemplified that more than
George Smathers," he said.
Warfield said Smathers' legacy
is present in the SAE house today.
A 6-foot portrait, accompanied by a
list of some of his accomplishments,
overlooks the dining room.,
Though Warfield never met
Smathers, he said he always
knew of Smathers' involvement.
When he began a campaign for a
seat in the U.S. Congress, he set up
headquarters at the old SAE house
on Southwest 13th Street and West
University Avenue, Warfield said.
He added that he and some
fraternity brothers plan to drive to
Miami for the funeral Monday.
They will also hold a memorial
service Saturday night to honor his
life and journey into what SAE con-
siders the everlasting fraternity.
"At SAE, we don't say, 'Rest in
peace,'" Warfield said. "We say,
'May you rest in chapter eternal.'"

* THE WRITING ON THE WALL PROJ-
ECT ENTERS ITS FIFTH YEAR.
By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Contributing Writer
Monday marked the beginning of the UF
project that aims to literally and metaphori-
cally break down a giant wall of hatred.
The Fifth Annual Writing on the Wall
Project is officially underway.
Students began painting cinder blocks at 8
a.m. on the North Terrace of the Reitz Union,
and by midafternoon,.more than a dozen
were decorated with derogatory words and
On Jan. 29, the bricks will be constructed
into a 40-by-9-foot wall in the middle of the
Plaza of the Americas that will stay there all
week. Then it willbe destroyed.
The initiative is meant to raise awareness
about hurtful stereotypes that many people
use casually and to encourage an open dia-
logue about biases.
"At first, I didn't know what it was about,"
said Nicole Williams, who originally saw the
wall two years ago as a freshman. "When I
went to the ceremony, I saw the meaning be-
hind it and why it was so important."
Williams now serves as the
On project's logistics director.
CampUS "We have such a diverse cam-
pus, and a lot of kids can relate to
what is said on the bricks," she said.
UF student Larry Rosalez was one of the
first to paint a brick Monday morning.

"A lot of people have told me I'm only here
because I'm black," he said. "That just hurts

Like many passers-by, he said that he was
at first skeptical about the project. But when he
learned its intention, he felt inspired.
"That makes me feel really good that
people care enough to do something like this,"

Groups speak out on abortion rights anniversary
By JENNIFER KEIL
Alligator Contributing Writer
While the UF Pro-Life Alliance
was in Washington, D.C., for
the annual March for Life rally
Monday, a different student group
made its opinions on abortion
known here on campus.
One hundred eighty-six coat
hangers connected to wooden
stakes were planted in rows on the
Reitz Union North Lawn by VOX:
Voices for Planned Parenthood.
Known as the No Choice
Memorial, the stakes represent the
186 women worldwide who die
every day from unsafe and illegal
Both the march and the me-
morial took place on the anniver-
sary of the landmark Roe v. Wade
Supreme Court case, which over-
turned state laws that restricted or
"It's a good reminder of the
reality of women who don't have
the choice of safe abortion," said
20-year-old Namrata Uberoi, Vox's
public relations officer.
"We are trying to prove abor-
tion needs to be legal on a global
scale," she said.
This year, there are 54 fewer
stakes in the ground than last
That means the estimated year-
ly number of unsafe and illegal
abortion deaths globally is down
by 19,600, according to the World
"That's what we're fighting
for," Uberoi said. "But the only
way it can continue is through
comprehensive sex education."

"People don't realize what
the absence of choice really looks
like," said Katelyn Milliman, 20,
the outreach chair for Vox. "So
there's a big impact in seeing the
memorial and understanding
what it means."
In addition to the memorial,
members of Vox handed out fliers,

Homeless shelter's fate awaits SG court decision

getting the university to recognize the

David Reznik and students in the
Sociology of Religion class he teaches
gathered enough student signatures to
add a question to the Spring 2007 Student
Government ballot: Should UF fund a
student-run homeless shelter and require
students to visit it during Preview?
Despite having collected 843 peti-
tion signatures, 60 percent more than
the required 500, Reznik's idea has been
Some students feel that visiting a shel-
ter should be voluntary and that such a
place should not be funded by UF.
"UF gets its money from taxpayers and
tuition of students," said Edward Miller,
a chemistry and physics major. "That
shows very clearly that money should be
used for the students. The homeless are
not a source of UF funds."
He said students understand the situa-
tion and don't need administrative help.
Other students originally opposed the
petition because of the Preview issue but
later supported the addition of the ques-
tions on the SG ballot after speaking with
Reznik and his students while they tabled
in Turlington Plaza on Thursday.
"I would vote 'yes' on the issue be-
cause, in reality, the Preview part will
not happen, but if the resolution passes,
that will mean good things for the com-
munity," said Kelly Moosbrugger, an
Before the question appears on the
ballot, it must be approved by the UF
Only two justices are
in office, and no deci-
sion can be made until
three more student jus-
tices are appointed.
Sandy Vernon, clerk
of the court, said the

the resolution by Feb. 14, the deadline for
the justices to do so.
Meanwhile, students in the Sociology
of Religion class have begun working on
solving the logistical issues of creating a

other leading university.
"Harvard already has it," Reznik said.

Reznik's class project hasn't received
funds from any source, nor have they
asked UF for money. Because the class is
not relying on UF for funds, it will apply
for grants and solicit businesses to donate
money for the shelter.
Students in the class will prepare a
proposal for a 100 Projects for Peace grant
that is due Jan. 26.
Projects for Peace is a national grant
organization that gives out 100 grants,
each for $10,000, to students or groups
of students who create projects that pro-
mote innovation, creativity and entrepre-
neurship, according to the UF Dean of

Not if the SG Supreme
Court can help it
So the UF Supreme Court has spoken on the issue of on-
line voting and given it a resounding "NO."
It all began in Fall 2005, with the Impact Party's slo-
gan of "Vote Naked!" supporting true Internet voting so
students could vote at home and, if they so chose, naked.
We thought this was a great idea. We aren't naming names,
but some of us really enjoy surfing the Internet in our under-
wear. Actually voting in the nude? It gives us goose bumps
just thinking about it.
And then came the Student Government ballot initiative in
Spring 2006. Most of us trudged to the computer labs around
campus solely to vote for the referendum it certainly wasn't
because we cared about the electing the executive board. If
that had been the case, Brandon Siler would have been elected
vice president instead of Lydia Washington.
And then last Fall, SG Supervisor of Election Brian Aungst
took us even further back in time by reverting from on-cam-
pus secure-site Intranet voting back to paper ballots and
even worse, he used the manual system of issuing ballots,
which caused confusion and overall hysteria. We even wit-
nessed several people leave the voting sites rather than deal
with the hassle.
But maybe this is all part of the Master Plan for the ruling
party to keep themselves securely on the throne.
Aungst argues that Internet voting "would make people
susceptible to voter fraud and deception." Some people have
argued that Internet voting may allow people to "force" peo-
ple to vote a certain way. -
Give us a break. We register for classes, pay tuition and fees
and add money to our Gator 1 Cards online. Many of us even
take quizzes and tests through WebCT Vista. These things are
all more important in the long run than SG elections.
But they won't even give online voting a chance. This is our
biggest disappointment in SG in a long, long time.
For the cost of parking
The time has come to
stop whining about
the cost of parking
decals. Every year, the price
goes up and every year,
students bitch and moan.
We're here to say, "Suck it
up, guys." Six percent, 10
percent increases is it re-
ally that big of a deal?
If the Transportation
and Parking Advisory
Committee's goal is to pre-
vent students from buying
decals, they're going to have
to raise it a hell of a lbt more
than 10 percent.
Quite frankly, we have it
lucky. For this year, we paid
$104 for an annual parking
pass. Faculty and staff, on
the other hand, paid be-
tween $222 and a whopping
$792. Try that on for size.
If you can afford to pay
for a decal and $2.25 a gal-
lon for gas, on top of regular
maintenance and insurance,
you can afford a $10 increase
in the cost of a decal.
Let's put some perspec-
tive on it: if you fill up
your 15-gallon tank twice
a month and add in the
cost of the decal, it's worth
about 90 cases of beer, a
round-trip plane ticket to
Las Vegas (with some cash
leftover for gambling) or
about a hundred hamsters.
It's a safe bet not from
experience, of course that
these would all be more furi
than a decal.

Iran's friendliness is all too familiar
If the Bush administration's behavior was observed in
a person, he or she would need therapy. The adminis-
tration has demonstrated that it functions by its own
Doctrine of Overreaction, better known as the Cheney
Doctrine: If there's a 1 percent chance that we will be at-
tacked by a party, we must act as if it's a certainty and
attack that party pre-emptively. It's kind of like sleeping
with a gun under your pillow. I wonder how Bush will
react when he sees that the rogue state Iran is making
friends with our neighbors to the south.
The infamous Iranian President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad is getting friendly with Latin America's
leftist leaders. It seems rather strange that a funda-
mentalist Muslim leader would suddenly court Latin
American socialists. This is a marriage born of a com-
mon enemy, kind of like when Hitler courted Stalin right
before World War II. In this case, the common enemy is
- you guessed it the United States.
Last week, Ahmadinejad visited both Nicaragua
and Venezuela in a bid to gain allies against the hated
Washington after coming under fire for his uranium
enrichment program. And he still refuses to stop, saying
the uranium is for energy research purposes. Who knows
what the truth is?
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, meanwhile, is
accusing Washington of using the uranium issue as an
excuse to attack Iran. Given the Bush administration's
record of using (non-existant) weapons of mass destruc-
tion as excuses to attack sovereign nations, it wouldn't
surprise me if it tries to do just that.
It will be interesting to see how this relationship plays
out because Venezuelans don't want Chavez to do any-
thing that would further antagonize the United States as
the country's top market for oil.
On one hand, Chavez expressed a
Desire for U.S. officials to improve
": ~ the relationship between the two,
and on the other, he's cultivating a
friendship with Iran, a member of
Anuradha the "Axis of Evil."
Pandey Nicaraguan President Daniel
Pandey Proposes Ortega is among the numer-
firstname.lastname@example.org ous Latin American leftists with
whom Ahmadinejad organized
meetings to gain allies. In instances like these, I can't
help but point out one of the ironies of history. Iran and
Nicaragua, despite having little in common, have indeed
crossed paths before: There was the Iran-Contra Affair
in the 1980s. The United States secretly sold arms to Iran
to free American hostages and then used the proceeds to
back Contra rebels in Nicaragua against Ortega.
That's another example in which U.S. neo-imperial-
ism has backfired on it years later. The latest was in the
1980s, when the United States supplied to the Taliban
and Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan during its war
with the Soviet Union.
It seems that wherever the United States tries to
meddle in another nation's affairs, it eventually gets bit-
ten back quite hard. It seems leaders of our country will
never learn any lessons from history. But if the fat cats
in Washington know what's good for them, they'll stop
being so ideological and try to play nice with the new
wave of leftist leaders in Latin America lest they.join
the "Axis of Evil," too.

Race of authors doesn't matter
After reading Jessica Ponn's col-
umn in Friday's paper stating that
black literature deserves to receive
more attention in the school system,
I feel the need to pose a question to
Why should the race of the au-
thor matter to the academic quality
of the writing?
Ponn laments that Dickens
is taught in schools over Phillis
Wheatley, but the truth is that lit-
erature should be judged by artistic,
linguistic and emotional quality, not
the author's skin color.
If you can honestly make a case
for Wheatley's poetry being better
suited to high school education.than
Charles Dickens, then maybe we
should re-examine literature taught
in schools across the nation.
However, do not presume to
make such a claim based theheri-
tage of authors. Justify that a change
should be made through the artistic
merit of their works.
Superhero fans are out of line
Gators fans and Rowdy Reptiles
take pride in making the O'Connell
Center a difficult if not the most
difficult place to play basketball
in the NCAA. But groups of fans
such as the "Supercrew" break the
solidarity of the student section.
Wearing orange and blue shows
a uniform presence of the crowd,
and it weakens our unity when peo-
ple deviate from the norm to make
a spectacle of themselves. While
they may be active Gators fans, the
"Supercrew" members are drawing
attention to themselves and away
from the rest of the best college bas-
ketball fans in the country.
Not to mention that it's unfair for
other fans to save seats for members
of the "Supercrew" in the Rowdy
Reptile section so they can sit down
in the lower sections, while every-
one else who waits in line have to sit
higher up from the court.
True superheroes set examples
for others. They don't encourage
publicity for themselves. I don't see
how Gators fans would encourage
anyone to act differently.
Writing on the Wall ineffective
Call me a bad person, but the Writing on
the Wall Project, which starts this week,
always seems to lack substance or a clear
goal. Manifesting stereotypes in a concrete (no
pun intended) form so that we can "tear down
prejudice and ignorance" sounds like a great idea
but it's not. It accomplishes little and creates a
mess afterwards. Symbols only represent they
can't do anything.
Consider UF's beloved mascot, the Gator.
As our school symbol, it represents pride, aca-
demic achievements and a growing number
of national championships. But even if we didn't
have this mascot, our school wouldn't be any less
proud or any less academically inclined and we
wouldn't be any less able to beat the crap out of
Ohio State in both basketball and football. The
Gator doesn't make us we make the Gator.
The Wall is just another empty symbol. While
the words on these bricks represent all the hate
and ridiculous notions we have about each other,
simply tearing down a wall stacked with them
will not defeat the minds of men.
Our prejudices are made of stronger materials
than concrete. We can't defeat ignorance with a
Chase McGee symbolic gesture. It takes
Speaking Out powers greater than the
steel wires that pull the
wall over. Only time can erase the distorted pas-
sions of the mind.
Pedestrians may take the time to read the
wall's bricks, but they really only give it a passing
glance. Then they march over to Krishnas lunch,
where every day they have shared their views on
tolerance and peace. They don't have a wall, but
they do have a message of hope one that will
continue on as long as they continue to share.
Our Writing on the Wall project is only a week-
long bricklaying. While guest speakers preach to
us about the absurdity and injustice in our world
today, their words constantly fall on deaf ears.
Breaking this wall will accomplish nothing.
Instead, the wall should be permanently stationed
somewhere, allowing us to view it and perhaps
gradually become more disgusted every day with
what our society has become. Maybe then we
might feel a bit more compelled to act.
Hate won't fall in a day and we shouldn't
declare a victory so soon.

O'Connell Center no longer Gainesville's only dome
By ANDREW STANFILL
Alligator Contributing Writer
Gainesville's first geodesic
dome home will double as an
outreach center for the homeless.
Rod Rodriguez, the presi-
dent of the St. Vincent de Paul
Catholic outreach organization
that is responsible for the home,
looked at many different house
designs before deciding on the
"It will be about half the
cost of what a house this size
would normally cost," said Bud
Durman, 57, of Gainesville, an-
other worker at the site.
The dome shape also gives ex-
tra strength to the home, making
it hurricane- and tornado-proof.
The building, located at 934
SE Seventh Ave., has been under
construction since August. It will
house a soup kitchen, clothes
bank and a place to shower, said
Rodriguez, 56, who will also live
in the home.
"About three years ago, I en-
visioned a place where we could
have a permanent office and help
the needy," said Rodriguez, who
has been with St. Vincent de Paul
for the last four years.
The men working on the
project are not paid construction
workers but rather the homeless
people whom the building will
help when it's completed.
"We've been building with
mainly homeless labor," Durman
said. "Everything we've been
getting has been donated."
The homeless men who work
on the project went without food
on some days in the early weeks.
Referred to as "the angel of the
project" by the workers, Pat
Trosino, 65, stepped in to help.
"I asked what the guys were
eating for lunch he said noth-
ing, so I've been bringing them
food," said Trosino, who has
been bringing food for the work-
ers almost daily since she heard
they were missing meals:
The men who are religious
aren't shy to show it: A cross
hangs over the unfinished en-
trance, and many thank God
for the opportunity to be able to
"I'm just trying to put back
a little bit of what I took when
I was drinking," said Durman,
who said he has been sober for
Another worker, David
Ehmann, 44, said he also feels
this project is bringing him back
from the edge.
He said before he started
working on the house he had
been living in a tent in the woods
and was among those holding
signs for money along the road-
side. He said he was ashamed
"I'm happy to have something
to wake up for," he said.
Rodriguez's wife donated the
property where the house is be-
ing built, and the materials have
been mostly donated as well, he
"I'm happy to have some-
thing to wake up for."
Most of the wood in the home
is recycled, from the window
frames made of shipping pallet
material to the doors purchased
at a salvage store.
"We didn't want them cutting
down trees for the doors, so we
bought used doors," said Max
McDougald, a worker at the site.
This particular dome is sold
as a kit and is constructed from
53 triangles. The triangles fit
together like a puzzle to create
the dome. Each one weighs 200
pounds and is made of concrete
and Styrofoam. The layer of con-
crete is about an inch thick, and

Lack of funds hinders research
REPORT, from page 1
One of the problems specific
to UF addressed the resources
needed to fund world-class re-
search universities in the state.
The report said the board
"has to assess the resource ca-
pacity of the state to support
world class research universi-
ties," citing UF as the state's
only such university.
But the report explains, "The
combination of low tuition,
already relatively high state
support and leveling federal
research dollars makes building
'world class' research universi-
ties in Florida a real challenge."
UF President Bernie Machen
said in. an e-mail Monday that
he is still reading the report
but finds its recommendations
"thought-provoking and wor-
thy of further discussion by (the
Board of Governors)."
Complex's costs could outweigh profits

Donovan said he thought
the development was "se-
verely bad news for Gainesville's future."
"I think we should resist both stages of this
project with all of our force," he said. "If the
county doesn't join us in stopping if, it's simply
a declaration of nuclear war on the city."

Future Gator nurse, UF soccer player keeps her eye on the goal
As a goalkeeper on the University of
Florida's top-ranked soccer team and a Col-
lege of Nursing student, Brittni Goodwin
juggles more than soccer balls in her very
Goodwin began her soccer and academ-
ic career at the University of Washington.
Because she was so far from her family, the
Fort Lauderdale native decided to move
closer to home. Last May, she received her
bachelor of science in degree psychology
To gain some clinical experience and
prepare for graduate school in psychology,
Goodwin worked at Shands VISTA along-
side the nurses. She admired the dedication
of the nursing staff so much that it inspired
her to go into nursing.
"I fell in love with what they do,
S' because there was so much compassion
behind it," Goodwin said.
Goodwin enrolled in the prerequisites
for the nursing program and this past fall
Sshe was accepted into the college. She
admits that a large factor in her decision to
attend UF was the soccer team, but she also
was very impressed with what the nursing
Program had to offer.

Currently enrolled in the accelerated
BSN program, Goodwin confesses that her
experience at the college has been difficult.
The program requires her to learn a great
deal of information in a short amount of
time; and she also has to incorporate her
rigorous soccer training schedule.
"I know that I have to make atempo-
rary sacrifice for now, but in the end the
payoff will be rewarding," Goodwin said.
"I have learned a lot about myself while be-
ing here, and I never cease to amaze myself
in my capabilities."
Goodwin credits the faculty for her
academic achievement and for giving her
the opportunity to pursue nursing.
"My adviser, Sharon Bradley, has
worked extremely hard to enable me to
complete this journey," Goodwin said.
"She is also an excellent professor and I
enjoy her teaching style."
After graduation, Goodwin hopes to
enter a certified registered nurse anesthetist
program and then work as a CRNA in a
critical care unit. In addition, Goodwin
said she also would love to coach soccer

addressing fiscal plan
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
Faculty Finance Committee will continue
this term to review the college's Five Year
Plan and help Interim Dean Joseph Glover
develop alternative ways to handle the
college's fiscal deficit. Since November of
last year, the committee has been working
to advise the college on managing and con-
trolling its budget. The committee consists
of six elected members and three appointed
faculty members distributed equally among
divisions of the college. An elected student
representative serves as the liaison to the
graduate and undergraduate students.
Along with financial goals, the com-
mittee plans to create a more open budget
process within the college administration.
Together with the faculty, department
chairs and Glover, the committee ulti-
mately hopes to inform the university's
central administration about the ambitions
and needs of the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences. Committee activities are
expected to be reported by April:

his SEC game
By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer
As a die-hard. Peyton Manning fan, Lee
Humphrey was ecstatic about the Indianapolis
Colts' bid to the Super Bowl.
"He was jumping up and down," forward Al
Horford said. "He was going crazy. He was a real
happy guy last night."
But it's the No. 1 UF men's basketball team (17-2,
4-0 Southeastern Conference) who should be jump-
ing for joy, because Humphrey is hot right now.
During conference play, the senior leads the SEC
in three-point percentage at 70.8 percent on 17 of 24
shooting. Despite his sharpshooter reputation, the
Gators have managed to find Humphrey with wide-
open looks at the basket.
"In the back of my mind I'm
like, 'Oh, you guys are stupid.
Why would you let him get the
Basketball ball?'" said forward Joakim Noah
about UF's opponents. "I see the
pass going to Humpty. Humpty is jumping up and
down. The swagger isso crazy -just please give me
the ball so it can go up. I just don't understand why
he's so open all the time. I mean you know what he's
going to do. It's not like he's going to go in there and
dunk on you."
True, he may not have ups like some of his other
teammates, but that hasn't stopped Humphrey from
driving into the lane.
After his record-breaking junior year setting
the UF mark with 113 threes made in a season
- Humphrey said he knew defenders would be
gunning for him as a senior. So, during the summer,
he gave special attention to his ball-handling skills in
order to have more versatility.
"I feel like I've driven more already so far this sea-
son than I did in all of last year," Humphrey said.
Of course, there have been times when the deci-
sion to go inside hasn't worked in his favor.
Against South Carolina, after hitting 5 of 5 from
three-point range, his first miss of the game came

Dunlap 6-foot-6, 240 pounds is a five-star
prospect rated No. 5 nationally at his position, accord-
ing to Scout.com, which also ranks UF's 2007 class No. 1.
Dunlap chose the Gators instead of South Carolina.
The decision gives the Gators their sixth five-star
commit, in addition to 14 four-star commits, and he
is the fifth defensive lineman in this year's class a
group that will be key in rebuilding
a line that lost five players. With a
tall, strong frame and amazing speed,
Dunlap has drawn comparisons to

Stype of player," Scout.com recruiting
analyst Jamie Newberg said.
Dunlap recorded 105 tackles, 35 tackles for loss and
24 sacks during his senior season and was the top pros-
pect from South Carolina.
"Anyone with his size, strength and speed that
just sets him apart," Fort Dorchester coach Steve LaPrad
What has really set Dunlap apart is his speed.
With 40-yard-dash times ranging from 45 to 4.7
seconds, Dunlap has earned the nickname "The Freak"
after former UF linebacker Jevon Kearse. Dunlap pos-
sesses the athleticism to play other positions but is most
effective in the pass rush.
"He could play somewhere else, but I can't imagine
anybody not putting him at defensive end," LaPrad
said. "He's just too fast and big."
Dunlap filled an unlikely role in high school this year
in addition to his defensive duties: kick returned.
"That just gave us a plus in another part of the

But UF coach Billy Donovan isn't voicing any objec-
tions if Humphrey charges toward the basket.
"When we play against teams that are more physi-
cally imposing in the frontcourt, he's probably not going
to be4ble to get all the way to the basket and score,"
Donovan said. "But what he can do is he can make plays
and get other guys shots through his penetration."
By driving more often, Humphrey cold draw fouls
and head to the free-throw line consistently.
This could be a problem for the guard, because even
though he's UF's most bankable shooter, last season he
converted only 18 of 30 free throws the lowest conver-

He seems to be off to a better start this year, sinking 8

Since the beginning of the SEC season, Humphrey
leads UF in scoring, averaging 16.8
points per game.
And if his offensive capabilities
weren't enough, Humphrey has im-
pressed Donovan with his defensive
"Lee is a very, very, very good
defender," Donovan said. "He and
Donovan Corey (Brewer) complement each
other so well because Lee is less of
a risk taker. Lee doesn't have the athleticism to run
through passes and get on the break and finish like
Corey can. So on one hand, you got a guy in Corey that
can be very disruptive, and on the other hand you got a

on kickoff returns, they either kicked it away from him or out

Dunlap joins five-star tackle Torrey Davis, four-star ends

"He'll have an opportunity to do great things at Florida, it's
just a question of how quickly he adjusts to the speed of the
game and picks up the scheme. If it all moves along right, he
should have a great career, and maybe even start it next year."
Some have questioned Dunlap's ability to qualify academi-
cally he is still awaiting SAT results but Newberg said UF
wouldn't offer Dunlap if he weren't in good academic stand-
