Brown enjoys his first visit to the Florida Gators

Last weekend it was junior day for the Florida Gators and most prospects that visited were from in state, but one prospect traveled a long way to visit Gainesville.

That prospect was running back Leddie Brown (6-0, 210, Smyrna, DE. High) who made the long trek from Delaware down to Florida.

“It went great, I liked it,” Brown said. “I got to see the practices and see how everything works there. We toured the campus and got to see where the students live and stuff. And we got to see the dorms and stuff. I talked to most of the coaches too.”

During the multiple days on campus,...

Florida Gators basketball: 2016-17 season in review

It is finally sinking in that Florida Gators basketball season is over. Florida finished the season with a 27-9 overall record while playing the seventh-ranked strength of schedule in the country.

The Gators were road warriors to start the season, playing their first 11 games away from home while Exactech Arena at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center was in the final stages of reconstruction. Florida was 8-3 over that span, with its three losses coming to strong opponents in Gonzaga, Duke and Florida State.

Florida won the very first game to be played in Exactech Arena over Little Rock...

Florida Gators lucky to have versatile coach like Tim Skipper

Tim Skipper probably knew the conversation was coming even before Jim McElwain asked to speak to him. He’s in tuned with how volatile the coaching circuit is and he undoubtedly had read or heard the reports that the Florida Gators were interested in bringing JaJuan Seider on to its staff.

When the time finally came to meet with McElwain and discuss moving from coaching running backs to coaching linebackers, it wasn’t much of a conversation.

“I’m happy to be a Gator,” Skipper said after practice on Wednesday. “I said that when I first came here. It doesn’t matter what I’m...

Johnson excited about future of Florida Gators basketball

Versatility and size are two attributes that come in handy in the game of basketball. A combination of both makes for a dangerous player. Florida is getting a guy with both in class of 2017 forward Chase Johnson. The 6’8 big man from Huntington Prep in West Virginia will be bringing a unique skill set to Gainesville.

The way Johnson loves to play is the same way that the Gators look to play. Johnson wants to run the floor and make plays. The ability to shoot the ball well from distance makes him difficult to guard.

“I like to get up and down the floor. I feel that I’m really...

Jackson looking for answers from the Florida Gators

The Florida Gators only signed one tight end in the 2017 class after Zech Byrd didn’t sign with the Gators on signing day.

That means the Gators are looking to add at least one in this year’s class and on Saturday tight end Jarrett Jackson (6-4, 257, Palm Beach Gardens, FL. High) visited Florida.

“The visit went well, just a couple of things that I’m waiting to find out about,” Jackson said of his Florida visit. “It went great overall but there’s still some question about where I’m going to play at in college. I got to learn a little bit about the school,...

Stevenson has UF as his leader: Florida Gators recruiting

An interesting thing for the Florida Gators recruiting classes is that the 2019 class has the exact same amount of commits as the 2018 class does.

This speaks volumes to the way Jim McElwain and his staff have continued to recruit players earlier in the process.

On Saturday, the Gators hosted several 2019 prospects on campus including defensive back Tyrique Stevenson (6-0, 175, Homestead, FL. South Dade) who enjoyed his visit.

“It was a great visit, I loved it up there,” Stevenson said of his visit to Florida on Saturday. “We visited the locker room, we went to practice and...

Nothing in life has ever come easy for Florida Gators wide receiver Dre Massey.

From moving around a lot as a child, to losing his father in a car accident at a young age, to paving his way out of Holmes Community College and finally landing at the University of Florida, all the obstacles Massey has faced in his life have given him the strength to endure whatever new challenges are thrown his way.

Jachai Polite Could be Florida Gators Next Great Lineman

Could sophomore Jachai Polite be the next great Florida Gators defensive tackle?

Yes. That’s it. Thanks for reading!

No, but seriously, he could.

The sophomore defensive tackle from Daytona Beach, Fla. came to the University of Florida has an unheralded, or rather under-reported on, recruit. A three-star out of Mainland High School, Polite committed in November of his senior year over schools like Southern California, Missouri, and Georgia Tech. He was expected to potentially contribute in a few years, but not earlier. He was expected to be a quicker than normal defensive tackle,...

Jarrad Davis turns heads, solidifies draft status at pro day

Jarrad Davis knew that his ankle wasn’t ready to go but as a senior for the Florida Gators native of Kingsland Georgia, he couldn’t imagine not playing in his final Florida-Georgia game.

So he played.

Davis tallied seven tackles that Saturday but playing in that game, and the following week against Missouri took its toll.

“Playing that Georgia week, that was my week, I couldn’t miss that week,” he said following Florida’s pro day on Tuesday. “Then I felt like I set myself back a little bit doing that, coming back so fast.

Davis missed the next three games. He tried to...

Rivera blasts Florida Gators past FSU, 4-1

JACKSONVILLE — Mike Rivera entered Tuesday night’s game hitting just .234. The junior catcher had struggled at the plate all season but stepped up to the plate in the first inning with an opportunity to break the game open.

Rivera worked the count to 2-2 and got a changeup from Florida State starter Andrew Karp. Rivera waited back and hit the ball high to left field, carrying over the wall and into the waiting arms of a young fan to give Florida a 4-0 lead in the top of the first, leading the Gators’ path to a 4-1 win.

“I did watch it,” Rivera said with a laugh. “Usually if...

Burney experiences a different visit to the Florida Gators

Florida Gators head coach Jim McElwain talked about how big of a Saturday it was for the Gators to host so many prospects on campus at his Monday press conference.

Calvary Christian) who got to see some of the new coaches for the first time.
