Draft Zone Spotlight: Jamar Hornsby, S, Tuskegee University
Jamar Hornsby is not the first football player in America to get in trouble with the law, and maybe it wasn’t the smartest thing that Hornsby has done in his life, but you cannot take away from his god given talents. Jamar Hornsby was probably one of the most reliable Safeties coming out of high school and was recruited by everyone. He ultimately chose the Florida Gators where he was eventually arrested and removed from the team. Hornsby was still able to shed all the negative light and continue playing football. It was not at Florida University, but instead D2 powerhouse Tuskegee. At Tuskegee last season Hornsby was quite the defender and a leader in the defensive back field. Expect this big 6’3 safety to get a chance in the NFL, and as long as he can keep moving forward in a positive manner then Hornsby could make it on a 53 man roster.

As we continue our week of Harlem Shake tribute videos, the fine folks over at the University of Florida have their own version to make you laugh.
The first one is a taped piece with the Gators locker room which shows their mascot and cheerleading/band members getting down:
The second one is a live version of the Harlem Shake done at the Florida/Kentucky game on Feb. 12:
Will Muschamp and the Florida Gators received a pledge from 2014 ESPN Watch List linebacker Christian Miller.
At times they looked a team that finished the regular season ranked second in the nation. And at times, like the turnover-strewn Georgia game and mail-it-in Sugar Bowl where the Florida Gators looked like a team that wanted to be anywhere other than the football field.
You can bet Will Muschamp will remind his spring team of the failures from a year ago. How this new batch responds...
COLUMBIA, Mo. -- What, exactly, should we make of these Florida Gators?
After a game in which they held the lead for the first 37 minutes and 9 seconds, after being up 13 points with less than 11 minutes left, the fifth-ranked Gators dropped their second SEC contest in as many weeks on Tuesday night. And it wasn't the way you want your top-tier team to lose. The Gators missed...
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida basketball player Damontre Harris, a junior who is sitting out this season under NCAA transfer rules, has been charged with failing to appear at an arraignment.
Harris, a 6-foot-10 forward who transferred from South Carolina after last season, was arrested early Wednesday after getting pulled over for a traffic violation. Gainesville Police spokesman...
The Gators will start this week’s schedule ranked No. 5 in the Associated Press Poll and No. 4 in the USA Today Coaches’ Poll.
ORLANDO, Fla. — The Gators were ready to prove the weekend was a fluke. Despite winning the series over Duke this weekend, Florida players and coaches felt like they didn’t play their best baseball. No. 15 Florida showed some of what it could do on Tuesday night, using its speed on the bases, electric arms out of the bullpen and timely power at the plate to secure a 5-3 win over UCF.
Tuesday had a familiar feeling to it. The Gators held a 13-point lead halfway through the second half, but they weren’t able to close the game out on the road at Missouri. No. 5 Florida struggled from the free throw line, turned the ball over and saw defensive lapses down the stretch, allowing the Tigers to get back in the game and eventually secure a 63-60 win over the Gators.
The Florida Gators reeled in one of the top secondary groups in the country in the 2013 class. Under Armour All-American Keanu Neal was an early commitment for the Gators and a guy that absolutely sees the great opportunity ahead of him at Florida with the departure of both safeties to the NFL.
The Gators bounced back after losing their season-opening game against Duke Friday night to clinch the series with a 16-5 victory. Zack Powers, who nailed two grand slams Sunday talks about the win along with RHP Ryan Harris and coach Kevin O'Sullivan.
The Florida Gators (21-4) met their demise again on the road, this time against the Missouri Tigers (19-7).
