RB Kelvin Taylor enrolls at Florida

Mike Gillislee has graduated from Florida, but the Gators will have a new running back enroll in school on Monday.

Belle Glade (Fla.) Glades Day running back Kelvin Taylor will be in Gainesville to begin classes and start in the weight room with strength and conditioning coach Jeff Dillman.

The 5-foot-11, 216-pound Taylor comes to Florida with a lot of goals to accomplish to this spring before he takes the field next fall with the Gators.

“I’m going to work hard this spring,” Taylor said. “I’m going to be working on learning the playbook and working out this spring with Coach Dillman. But the main thing is to get around my new team and work hard every day on getting better as a team.”

Taylor enters Florida off of a great high school career, including 2,423 yards rushing during his senior year and 41 touchdowns.

The Florida legacy hopes that production will continue in college but he admits that he doesn’t care about any personal goals next year.

“I’m a team player,” Taylor said. “Anything I can do to help my boys win next fall is what I’m going to do. Whatever that calls for me to do.”

Taylor’s father Fred Taylor wore No. 21 throughout his career and Kelvin plans to wear the same while he has Florida.

At this time Taylor isn’t sure who he will be rooming with at Florida, but he should know soon.
