82 Days until Gators Kickoff: #82 Moral Stephens

Monday, June 12, marks 82 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 82 for the Florida Gators is occupied by redshirt junior tight end Moral Stephens.

The forgotten man among returning tight ends at Florida, Moral Stephens is a guy that may have the best overall skill set in the group.

Out of Perry Taylor County in the panhandle, Stephens had a great senior year totaling 1,105 yards and 14 touchdowns showing terrific athletic ability to get down the field and catch the ball.


In his three years on campus at Florida Stephens has just one catch for 14 yards, which happened in the win over Kentucky in 2016.

Stephens had his best spring of his career after getting to a point where his future at Florida was likely questioned. He may have had the best spring of the four tight ends on campus and despite his size has shown the ability to get down the field and make plays. That size also allows him to be a quality blocker, but that is an area where he has needed to get more aggressive.

Stephens earned accolades from the staff in the spring and is expected to contribute in 2017.
