Gators were only able to land one tight end, Junior College standout David
Kenner. They lost DJ Norris from
Pace, Florida to Florida State on Signing Day.
Kenner, from Pennsylvania, signed with the Gators back in December.
You can bet that this next recruiting season, tight end will be a high
priority because there are not that many ends on campus.
Kenner (6-4, 255, 4.65) of Lackawanna Junior College signed with Florida is
December. He was one of the top
tight ends from the JUCO ranks. Kenner
is a good receiver but is considered a better blocker than route runner and
catcher. But that's OK early at
Florida because he compliments Ben Troupe very nicely.
Troupe is athletic and a very good receiver and playmaker and an average
blocker. Kenner does have soft
hands and good speed for a 250+ pounder. Kenner
is already on campus and we will get a spring preview with him.
two seasons at Lackawanna, Kenner did score 16 touchdowns.
This past season, he had 30 receptions.
