Signees weigh in on spring scrimmage

Florida has had a number of its 2012 signees on campus to watch the Gators practices throughout the spring.

On Saturday, a total of 10 of the Gators’ 2012 signees were in attendance to watch the Orange & Blue Debut and see what the team looks like that they’ll be joining for the 2012 football season.

Most of the signees Gator Country spoke with were impressed by what they watched on the field.

Here are what a few of the signees had to say about the game:

Bradenton (Fla.) Southeast cornerback Brian Poole Jr.: “It was really good. I enjoyed myself and was impressed by the defense.”

Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln receiver Raphael Andrades: “It was great. I saw some good things out there. I thought the offense was very smooth and they moved the ball down the field really well.”

Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek defensive end Quinteze Williams: “It was real good. I saw a lot and how I could help out on the defense. I saw where I could help out next year.”

Atlanta (Ga.) Marist kicker Austin Hardin: “(Strength and conditioning coach Jeff) Dillman is the man. He’s really done well with the team and there’s just a good vibe going on right now with the team. They looked really physical and all of the early enrollees done really well. Latroy (Pittman) did awesome.”

Boiling Spring (N.C.) Crest defensive end Jonathan Bullard: “The defense looked really good and physical. When everyone gets healthy, the defense is going to look real good. I have been working hard in the weight room and on the field doing workouts, so I believe I can help them get to the next level next year.”
