Found August 10, 2013 on College Spun:
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, running back, cornerback, and wide receiver. Watch the video via GatorZone below — the guy has some serious talent: If I was Will Muschamp, I’d be calling up Billy Donovan ASAP. I’m pretty sure that Young could be the next great basketball player turned tight end — he can certainly go up to get anything thrown his way.

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.

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.
