Florida took its third straight loss of the year as the Gators fell to Georgia 23-20 on Saturday afternoon on national television. With the game being broadcast nationally on CBS, a number of prospects tuned in and offered Gator Country their reactions.
Offensive lineman David Sharpe (6-8, 275, Jacksonville, FL Providence School): “It was a great game and effort by Florida, they had me hyped,” Sharpe said.
Receiver Ermon Lane (6-2, 172, Homestead, FL): “No worries,” Lane said via Twitter
2015 running back Shi Coward (5-8, 168, Niceville, FL): “They don’t have much left … 8 starters out already, but they still gave UGA a fight,” Coward said.
Offensive lineman Travaris Dorsey (6-3, 314, Jacksonville, FL Raines): “They played a good game but they just started off slow today,” Dorsey said.
Linebacker Dwight Williams (6-1, 212, Gardena, CA Junipero Serra): “It was a great game and got really really feisty,” Williams said. “Florida played good in the second half but came up short on too many personal fouls.”
Receiver Rashad Canty (6-4, 210, Riverdale, GA): “They came to play in the second half but they just didn’t finish the drill,” Canty said. “They need to extend the field on offense more often because of the huge momentum change it brings. They need a true receiver threat that brings their offense to the next level because incorporating more successful passing will open up the running game for Kelvin Taylor.”
2015 offensive lineman Tristen Hoge (6-4, 285, Pocatello, ID Highland): “I liked their second half effort but they just need to put the four quarters together,” Hoge said.
Cornerback Quincy Wilson (6-2, 195, Fort Lauderdale, FL University School): “ All this losing is over with when we hit campus,” Wilson said via twitter.
Safety Jamal Adams (6-0, 199, Lewisville, TX Hebron): “Now that’s big time football right there,” Adams said via twitter.
Safety Adoree’ Jackson (5-10, 172, Gardena, CA Junipero Serra): “Yeah Florida!,” Jackson said via twitter during Florida’s comeback.
