78 Days until Gators Kickoff: #78 Marcel Benalcazar

Friday, June 16, marks 78 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 78 for the Florida Gators is occupied by redshirt senior offensive lineman Marcel Benalcazar.

There isn’t much to find on Marcel Benalcazar who is actually listed as Ricardo Benalcazar on the official team roster.

A high school graduate of Archbishop McCarthy in Miramar, Florida, Benalcazar originally walked on at Florida State before transferring to Florida in the summer of 2015.

There is no high school film to be found of Benalcazar, but one thing to mention is that he was the easiest man to spot on the practice field this spring as the largest player on the team that was here, standing 6-foot-7 and weighing 357 pounds.

He has not seen the field in his two years on campus at Florida.
