Gators back in the mix for Jernigan?

Tim Jernigan surprisingly canceled his trip to Tallahassee this weekend, and instead took the short journey to see Florida take on South Carolina. I personally watched the game, and Florida were downright awful; even their defense didn't look that good. 

But still, Jernigan came away feeling quite comfortable with the Gators, and insists they still have a chance of signing him in February. However (and unfortunately), he has said that LSU, Alabama and FSU have pulled away slightly from Michigan, USC and Florida.

This is somewhat surprising to hear, Jernigan has had nothing but positive comments about the Maize and Blue since his trip. No need to hit the panic button on this one just yet, as he says all six still have a chance. However...

The main reason Jernigan might not want to play at Michigan is because of the highly debated 3-3-5 scheme. Tim has been double teamed in high school probably for the last two or three years, and the feeling is that he might want to play in a four man front to help himself out. It's now up to the Michigan coaches to convince him that their scheme is versatile enough to keep him happy. Could be an uphill battle from here on in.
