Florida’s shallow offensive line takes a big blow with five star stud Martez Ivey to undergo surgery. Coach Jim McElwain hoped for the best but prepared for the worst when the news of Ivey’s “sore leg” came about yesterday.
He came to Florida to play defense but redshirt sophomore Antonio Riles is finally ready to showcase his talent on the offensive line. And they’re going to need it.
Riles was just 287 lbs. his freshman year, pushed to 295 lbs. for his redshirt year in 2014 and now the third year Gator is listed at a solid 322 lbs.
The switch from one side of the ball to the other was an easy adjustment for Riles but now throwing the finishing touches on his game before the season starts, he’s focused on consistency.
Check out this video where Riles talks about the improvements and adjustments made, his impressions on Jordan Sherit and how Martez Ivey proclaimed his status.
