He was finally listed on the roster on the team's official web site on Friday, Florida football's media day. Yet, when you click on his profile, they don't have a picture of him yet. No one has asked the head coach about him. He wasn't at media day to take questions. He's not in the media guide. But, he's played more college football than any offensive lineman on the roster.
