Things are up in the air for former Gator commitment Jalen Julius (Winter Garden, Fla./West Orange). He was hoping to play on offense in Gainesville because he wants to be a wide receiver in college. But Florida and Will Mushcamp want him on defense.
”He’s a kid that wants to play on offense and wants to be a wide receiver,” said Bob Head, West Orange’s coach. “He can play on offense. But honestly, he’s one of the best defensive backs that I have ever seen. I think he could be in the NFL one day playing in the secondary. But he doesn’t want to play on defense. He wants to be an offensive guy.”
”I am not sure what Jalen will do in the end,” Head said. “He likes a few schools now like Ole Miss and Louisville but someone will give him that opportunity [to play on offense]. He’s too fast and too athletic.”
Julius is a three-star prospect and the No. 70 ranked wide receiver in the nation.
