It is a big week for the Florida Gators in terms of the 2014 recruiting class. Five prospects will make their decisions and the Gators are in on all five of them. Scout.com's Jason Higdon talks about the five super athletes and gives his best guess as to where they stand and the chances of the Gators getting them. Follow us to our insider message board to find out what he thinks and why.
BEST OF MAXIM
Like a lot of seasons the Florida Gators are where they are used to be: ranked, one of three favorites for the SEC East and therefore a place in the SEC Championship, off a Top-5 recruiting class (meaning there's MORE great talent coming through). But unlike other seasons (particularly under a certain Mr Meyer and Mr Spurrier), there are still some massive questions around the...
The Florida Gators' first year wide receivers coach Joker Phillips posted the video of a pre-practice jam session to his Instagram account.
Florida Gators center Patric Young, of course, loves playing on the hardwood. But his athleticism, combined with his 6-foot-9, 250 pound body, could be well suited for other sports besides basketball. Young realized this, and decided to take his talents to the football field.
Young practiced with several Gators football players, trying himself out at numerous positions: quarterback...
Florida Gators head coach Will Muschamp announced that true freshman LB Matt Rolin tore his ACL and is out for the 2013 season.
Here is a little Florida Gators football history lesson. Everyone pay attention.In the early 1980s, Wayne Peace led the Gators to respectability. Peace gave way to Kerwin Bell toward the end of the decade.Bell turned the reins over to Shane Matthews, when passed the torch to Danny Wuerfell.Wuerfell became Tim Tebow and Tebow has become Jeff Driskel.Now that I have your attention...
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel felt just fine following his first practice since an appendectomy.
Driskel said Friday he "didn't have any pain, no issues" while returning eight days after emergency surgery.
"Everything felt good in my stomach," said Driskel, who was medically cleared to return Thursday. "I thought I threw the...
The Florida offense under Will Muschamp won’t ever be a high-flying attack. The Gators want balance, controlling the clock with toughness through the run game. There’s still plenty of room for improvement through the air, and Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease thinks it will happen this year. The Gators have a second-year starting quarterback and a maturing group of playmakers.
Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease loves confusion. It’s the basis of his offense -- using pre-snap shifts and motions to confuse the defense and keep them off balance. When he’s looking at the other side of the ball in practice this fall, Pease sees some similar dynamics. The Gators have pieces on the defensive line that can be lined up in different areas to confuse the...
The tight end position at the University of Florida is going to take on a new look in 2013. Going from a more finesse split out receiver position, Florida head coach Will Muschamp and offensive coordinator Brent Pease plan on using a more physical approach and more of the position at the line of scrimmage. Redshirt freshman Colin Thompson certainly brings that to the table for 2013.
One week into fall camp, the Gators are still dealing with numerous injuries. Florida got its starting quarterback Jeff Driskel back in practice on Thursday night, which was the most important injury that was being monitored in the last week. There are still important injuries, including two ACL tears that will keep players out for the season and the uncertainty around running back Matt Jones.
