    Ehh there's a reason why it's rare seeing a true freshmen TE, LB, or DT starting early or getting major snaps early. It's not easy

    Our DT's Campbell and Slayton were starters as true FRs

    They weren't starters. It was Bryan and Clark

    My man.


    Not looking like too many options based strictly on star ratings smh.

    South Carolina State DT Roderick Perry is in the portal as a grad transfer. Totaled 14.5 TFLs last season and was expected to be among the top players in the FCS.

    from the twitter link. Productive numbers but the physically difference is probably too much. Especially at a position like DT

    DT is probably one of the 2-3 toughest positions to play as a true freshman. When you do see true freshmen play its either a very simple package (obvious passing down, just get to the QB) or desperation (injuries).

    Rule of thumb is the closer to the snap you are, the harder it is to play as a true freshman.

    Idk but we're going to be stupid young at DT next season

    "The Gators have three senior defensive tackles returning in Kyree Campbell, Tedarrell Slaton and Marlon Dunlap, but they have no sophomores or juniors, meaning the interior of the defensive line will be extremely young in 2021."

    I think some projecting him to head to the league after this season. But if he does stay, i think he's a SSDE

    I didn’t defend him. I said the world was an entirely different place 500 years ago. Most the people in the world (especially us spoiled Americans) can’t comprehend some of the actions taken back then. But anyways yeah I’m done with this topic because it definitely has nothing to do with UF

    UF offered him according to the article. Maybe we are not his cup of tea. IN ANY even, you are right. Kid appears to be a potential monster.

    I didn't want to say anything about it in fear of getting labeled. I'm glad you did.
