84 Days until Gators Kickoff: #84 Camrin Knight

Saturday, June 10, marks 84 days until the Florida Gators kickoff against the Michigan Wolverines in Dallas, Texas and we’re going to count down the days with the Florida roster until that game. Number 84 for the Florida Gators is occupied by junior linebacker Camrin Knight.

Camrin Knight came to Florida via Tallahassee Lincoln HS. A member of Jim McElwain’s first recruiting class, Knight originally committed to Will Muschamp in February before his senior year.

A big blocking tight end at Lincoln, Knight did manage 24 catches for 335 yards over the course of his time with the Trojans.

Having a few down-the-field type pass catchers at the position, Knight was brought in as more of an in-line blocker. He saw the field as a true freshman because of his blocking ability and played in eight games as a freshman, just four as a sophomore.

With the lack of playing time, Knight was moved to linebacker after last season and practiced there this spring. He is way behind at the position, but his big body and athletic ability make him an intriguing fire at the position. Nobody knows what to expect of Knight as we head into the 2017 season.
