Countdown to Kickoff: #99 Jay-Nard Bostwick

We are counting down until the gators kick off 2015 in a couple of ways and today we start with the roster count down. Strangely enough we have to start the player countdown with the biggest question mark on the roster. Number 99 is defensive tackle Jay-nard Bostwick and we aren’t even sure what his status on the team will be by the time August rolls around.

“Taking care of personal business” has been the talk coming from head coach Jim McElwain about whatever issues Jay-nard Bostwick might be facing. Whatever the reason, the future is in doubt for the 6-foot-3, 284 pounder.

He played sparingly as a true freshman in 2014, but did see the field in five of the 12 games on the schedule last year. A quick and physical 3-technique, Bostwick was supposed to supply not only depth in 2015, but challenge for a starting spot.

We can’t write him off as it does appear that the staff has not done so. While missing most if not all of spring drills, he still has a chance to come in and make a difference. WE should know more by the time August rolls around, but for now our lead off jersey for the 2015 countdown remains a real mystery.
