Durkin Says Gators Linebackers Are Fighting For Playing Time
GAINESVILLE- With the Florida Gators holding their first open practice of the fall Thursday night at the Donald R. Dizney Lacrosse Stadium (7:30 pm), fans will be able to see the progress of the new linebacking corps first-hand.
The Gators lose their top 2 linebackers from last year (Jon Bostic, Jelani Jenkins), but with Jenkins missing time for injuries last year, returners Antonio Morrison and Michael Taylor actually both had more tackles last year.
In additiona to Morrison and Taylor, Gators defensive coordinator DJ Durkin said that the versatile roles of "Buck" linemen Dante Fowler and Ronald Powell will allow the Gators flexibility to show multiple looks on defense.
