Over the next few weeks Florida will host dozens of top prospects, not only in the 2013 class, but 2014 pair of top 2014 prospects as well.
Those prospects will flock to Gainesville for spring practice and eventually the Orange and Blue Debut at 1 p.m. on April 7.
This weekend, at least 18 known prospects are planning to attend spring practice, including seven of the 10 prospects who have made verbal commitments to sign with Florida.
Here's a look at the visitors:
John Brantley is gone.
That simple sentence may make some of the fans who lamented the oft-criticized signal caller’s two-year reign at quarterback rejoice, but there’s no such enjoyment from Florida’s coaching staff.
The fans are excited about the future, but coach Will Muschamp knows what Brantley brought to the table was more than most give him credit for.
“It’s not an indictment on either young man,” Muschamp said about the poor play of then-freshmen quarterbacks Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel a year ago. “I think they’re going to be really good players, but playing as a freshman at that position is different.”
Standing 16-meters away from the goal, junior Kitty Cullen received the ball. She looked up the field at the goal, and then she was off.
Cullen spun to her left to get around the first Stony Brook defender. She then sprinted straight ahead to split two other defenders. Finally, she faked left, but ran right to cause two more defenders hesitate for a moment.
In that moment, Cullen cocked back her stick and launched the ball into the back of the net for a goal.
The accolades keep on coming for the Florida men’s track team.
Florida’s Mike Holloway was chosen as the 2012 U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association National Men’s Indoor Coach of the Year, voted on by the nation’s coaches.
This is Holloway’s third consecutive year to win the award, this being his tenth year with the Gators.
