Gator freshmen numbers unveiled

The newest freshman class continues to arrive on campus and almost all of them have done so. In the meantime, the Gators have assigned almost all the jersey numbers and heights and weights of the incoming freshmen and transfers.

The Florida roster just got quite a bit roster over the last week or so, with freshmen enrolling in classes and transfers coming in, the roster increased over 25% during the week and is still waiting on at least one more.

Florida has assigned jersey numbers and given official heights and weights for most of the newest Gators and here they are.

At running back the two that have made it on campus so far #25 Jordan Scarlett (5-10, 198) and #32 Jordan Cronkrite (5-11, 205). These are promising measurables for both athletes that look to see a lot of time on the field in year one of their college careers.

While #87 Kalif Jackson has been on campus since January the only other receiver in the class is #81 Antonio Callaway (5-11, 198) who again shows up with the right kind of body that should allow him to get on the field right away.

Tight end Camrin Knight just arrived so we don’t have any numbers for him, but he has always been a big body tight end that is most inclined to be a good blocker at the line of scrimmage.

The offensive line will get some nice upgrades with now seven new freshmen including true frosh transfer #59 T.J. McCoy (6-1, 302) from NC State. The rest include #64 Tyler Jordan (6-4, 292), #66 Nick Buchanan (6-4, 285), #67 Brandon Sandifer (6-3, 357), #68 Richerd Desir-Jones (6-4, 290), #73 Martez Ivey (6-5, 302), and #74 Fredrick Johnson (6-6, 305).

Jordan has worked his weight up quite a bit from high school and now is likely physically ready to handle college linemen. He will likely compete right away at center with McCoy and sophomore Cam Dillard.

Buchanan and Desir-Jones come in with very little extra weight and may have to work on 10 pounds of muscle before the season starts to compete at the guard spots. Sandifer is a bit in the other direction and will likely have to polish off a little bit of weight.

The defensive line has their fair share of newcomers as well. The likes of #62 Andrew Ivie (6-1, 302), #92 Jabari Zuniga (6-3, 263), #96 CeCe Jefferson (6-1, 275), and #98 Luke Ancrum (6-5, 251) have all arrived and are prepared to work.

This entire group of defensive linemen actually all hve enough size right now to compete at the college level with Jefferson likely needing to work off a few pounds to get in the best of shape. That will come.

Keivonnis Davis is still waiting to be admitted and looks at this time to show up in August.

The Gators signed one linebacker in 2015 and #44 Rayshad Jackson (6-0, 221), looks primed to get in the mix right away.

At safety, #28 Kylan Johnson (6-1, 220) is the lone signee. He again comes with primo size for the position and physically looks ready to compete.

Cornerback, #35 Chris Williamson (5-11, 188), isn’t built like your typical true freshman corner and will be counted on early to get on the field for the Gators as they really are short on depth.

The rest of the bunch include transfer quarterbacks #14 Luke Del Rio (6-1, 216) from Oregon State who will not be able to play this year and will be a redshirt sophomore in 2015 and #12 Josh Grady (6-0, 200) from Vanderbilt will jump in the mix to compete right away.

Offensive tackle #75 Mason Halter (6-6, 295) was a small school All-American at Fordham and a very welcome surprise in the last couple of weeks. While Georgia Tech linebacker transfer Anthony Harrell (6-2, 237) doesn’t have a jersey assignment yet because he just arrived but is expected to also jump in the mix and the depth depleted linebacker position.
