Quotable: “When I met with coach (Will) Muschamp he told me how bad they wanted me and stuff. He actually brought the president of the university in to meet me and talk to me. When we started talking about positions he said I could play offense or defense. He said if I play defense I would play ‘Sam’ linebacker and if I played offense I would play the Trey Burton type of position.” – Alex Anzalone told GatorCountry.com.
