    The Florida Gators have added a third defensive tackle through the transfer portal in former Auburn lineman Tyrone Truesdell.

    Love the pickup, hate the timing. Will he be able to learn enough to give valuable reps? And what does it say about our current depth?

    Wow, that’s a pretty good pick up even if for just one year. He was a starter the last two years.

    Weird timing but looks like someone that can help us this year.

    Hopefully, having been teammates with Newkirk at Auburn will help on the learning curve with our system.

    Started the last 2 years at Auburn. Exercised his China Virus graduate year. He is enrolled in UF's fall term and is eligible to play immediately. Measurable at AU and UF as he has been added today to the bottom of the UF roster:

    6'2"/326 - Dang! Harsin must have already developed an intense dislike for UF.

    My gut feeling is Mullen was trying to keep this out of the limelight. 247 Sports has the story, but I don't know who broke it:

    Gators add another transfer player to team (247sports.com)

    Add this to UF composite team score and the Gators likely rise to the top 5.

    “Can never have too many DL”.

    And he hates Bama too.

    Did we use a counter or lose a ship for this class?

    The way these transfers keep coming we might need to keep an eye out when "Here comes the Gators" is spoken on Saturday to see who runs out of the tunnel.

    If there is a system too complex for a DT to pick up in a week, its too complex.

    "Get your butt in the A/B gap and wreak havoc." A smart LB can cover the misalignment.

    And its really not that hard for the LB to tell him what to do when the sideline sends in the call, unless it comes 3 seconds before the snap. Not going to comment further on that other than those calls should be more for the back 7 than the front 3/4.

    247 Sports says he's on a ship. If this was in the works further back than we know, it just might explain why Boateng is a preferred walk on. I don't have a clue how we have this ship, but the coaches do. ;)

    And such a great football name. Damn it, when you have a player named Tyrone Truesdell on your two-deep you feel excited to watch your team.

    Trues is a solid SEC starting DT. Yes, the timing is weird and was apparently an off the field "baby mama drama" type situation that had Truesdell being dismissed by Harsin at AU. That being said...he's a big strong DT who should supply a solid 40+ snaps in the rotation assuming he knows the defense.

    Pretty bizarre that both our starting DTs from last year are now in the rotation at UF. Interested to see how both do.

    Is there any way to see the date enrolled in the student directory? Late registration was August 23-27. I'm wondering if he was enrolled and practicing before the story went public?
