Florida returns to The Swamp this weekend for it's homecoming game against Vanderbilt and junior defensive tackle Darious Cummings talks about the team's outlook on the rest of the season.
Junior defensive tackle Darious Cummings came to Florida in a road rarely traveled. Signing with Florida State in 2010, he didn’t last a year there before transferring to East Mississippi Community College. While there, Cummings earned JuCo All-American status and maintained his fourth star before signing with the Gators. Now he is pushing to start inside on the SEC’s best defense.

Darious Cummings out of East MS CC has been down this road before.
