There’s a case of the Jordans coming over Gainesville.
In a preview of what’s to come for 2015, both Florida Gators running back signee Jordan Scarlett (5’10″, 202lb; St. Thomas Aquinas) and athlete signee Jordan Cronkrite (5’11″, 198lb; Westminster Christian) were on hand in Ben Hill-Griffin Stadium for Jim McElwain’s first Orange and Blue Debut.
The incoming freshmen got a glimpse of Mac’s new offense, albeit a limited one. Both were impressed with what they saw, specifically the play calling.
Cronkrite, who plans on being used as a running back for the Gators, kept his eye on current running backs Kelvin Taylor and Adam Lane, figuring out how he could be implemented. The Miami native says McElwain has complimented him on his size and sees him being used in the same way as Taylor.
Scarlett took what he saw in The Swamp and began foreseeing himself and Taylor as a one-two punch. He has also started going a little further and now has plans for his own All-American brick outside of the stadium…and a statue. Hearing that the Heisman has always been a quarterback award at the University of Florida doesn’t deter this consensus four-star.
The Fort Lauderdale native is also still working on one more very important part of his game…his teammate.
Scarlett still has one more year to try and convince his best friend Sam Bruce to join him in Gainesville. The 2016 wide receiver is currently committed to Miami, just as both Scarlett and Cronkrite were until early 2014.
GatorCountry caught up with both Jordan’s following the Gators Orange and Blue Debut to find out their impressions of the day and their plans moving forward with the team.
