    After watching the game again i have to say this kid looked GOD! He was flying around whether it was when the ball was put in the air or coming up to stop the run. I had to give him cudos galore. Between Gorman and Hargreaves that secondary is forming very nicely.

    I thought Gorman did a nice job. I really think all of them have done a nice job in the secondary

    Was very impressed with him this last game.

    Secondary was a concern for me, but less so with each game.

    Gorman stepping up allows Watkins or Riggs to add depth to the CB spot, were we only have 3 players to count on and two of them are return men for us (which I really wish would change).

    Really though Neal and Harris would be in the rotation at Safety by week 5.

    I was also impressed/relieved at the game he had. I didn't remember him at first & was wondering where he came from, lol. Gator coaches seem to do a great job with player development - the JC D-linemen have made more of an impact than I expected.

    I believe he was the one who put the crushing blow on Miami's star RB.

    Gorman, Riggs, Poole and Maye have all produced well for us this season -- not perfect, but really really good players that add quality depth.

    Gorman reminds me of Ahmad Black. Same type of instincts. I like him. He seems to be around the ball most of the time.

    Harris is out for the year with an injury. Neal is on special teams

    I have been wondering why he doesn't get more time. He has impressed me whenever he gets the chance to be in a game going back to his freshman year. I thought for sure he would be starting by now. To have a guy with that talent and instincts come in as a backup speaks volumes about our starters.

    I have been more impressed with Gorman than any other safety on the team. If we aren't playing a true FS and SS defense, he needs to be playing more. Very good instincts and a very good hitter.

    Gorman had that reputation for being both instictive and a hitter when he enrolled.

    The only thing holding him back has been his size. With Gorman and Riggs, we have two pretty short safeties

    yep he laid the wood to Duke Johnson I believe....seems to be a very sure tackler when he hits the ball carrier they go down, no more forward progress

    I know others were hyped a bit more in camp....but I feel more comfortable w/Jabari on the field

    I trust the coaches are seeing it too... it must really frustrate coaches when kids that show out in practice disappear on gameday. And vice versa kids that practice ok but light it up in the game

    Riggs seems to be an excellent tackler as well. His cover skills may be 3rd or 4th best on the team, but he's makes great, technically sound tackles.

    Gorman is a player! He can certainly deliver a hit and he has great instincts back there in our secondary.

    The players and the coaching staff seem to love Gorman. They were ecstatic when he picked off that pass. It was cool to see.
