UF’s Easley, Elam to return next season
With Senior Day over with Florida Gators football fans are now not only worried about how the team will replace graduating seniors and a bevy of juniors who could leave early for the NFL Draft.
Most of those juniors are on the defensive side of the ball, including safety Matt Elam, defensive tackle Shariff Floyd, defensive end Dominique Easley and linebacker Jelani Jenkins. There’s also junior tight end Jordan Reed, who has a chance to leave early as well.
On Sunday, GatorCountry.com had multiple sources say both Elam and Easley have told several team members they plan to return for their senior seasons. The duo informed teammates during a team meal after Saturday’s 23-0 home win against Jacksonville State, which improved the Gators’ to 10-1 overall and 7-0 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
