Several current Gators commits were in town including running back commit Iverson Clement (5-11, 199, Mount Holly, NJ Rancocas Valley) who enjoyed the atmosphere in Gainesville.

Florida Gators making Jacob Copeland a priority

The Florida Gators welcomed several top recruits to Gainesville this weekend for Friday Night Lights. Among those players was the No. 9 ranked wide receiver in the 2018 class, Jacob Copeland (6-0, 192, Pensacola, FL. Escambia).

“Feels good just to come back here and enjoy the time,” said Copeland. “Just chill, relax and not really have to...

Justin Fields works out and updates recruitment at Friday Night Lights

Justin Fields tweeted he was in Gainesville and the buzz started growing. A crowd started to gather around the northwest corner of the Florida Gators indoor practice facility on Friday Night as the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback made his entrance to Friday Night Lights.

Fields owns offers from just about every Division I program in the country and his reputation precedes him. He didn’t need to work out, but the five-star quarterback from Kennesaw, Georgia couldn’t imagine coming and just watching from the sideline.

“It’s just the competitive nature in me. I just like to compete. I...

Florida Gators recruiting: UF a “dream school” for Zipperer

Before Friday Night Lights takes place in the Swamp the Florida Gators hosted a “Sensational Sophomore night Thursday in the indoor practice facility. One of the big targets, literally and figuratively Thursday night was 2019 tight end recruit Keon Zipperer, who came in at 6-1, 235 pounds.

The Gators picked up a 2018 tight end commitment earlier on in the day Thursday, but the position is one that Florida knows it needs to continue loading up on and the Gators are very interested in Zipperer. The feeling is mutual.

Four Obscure Areas the Florida Gators Need Improvement

Over the past five years (oh yeah, I celebrated my five year Gator Country anniversary on July 12), I have tried to explore every statistical avenue when it came to the Florida Gators football team. I have looked at positives and negatives, individual and team, and team and opponent – all to varying angles.

However, rarely have we explored the “obscure”. Now, what is considered obscure? I’ve classified them as things that you may overlook when looking up statistics online and in reality play a much bigger role than you may imagine. Or, in one case, just a really, really weird case...
