Feleipe Franks is Chauncey Gardner-Johnson’s quarterback.

UF defensive tackle T.J. Slaton does not often sneak up on anyone.

When the 6-foot-4, 344-pound sophomore hits the basketball court, though, people are not quite sure what to make of him — until the game begins. Soon, Slaton’s surprising agility, explosiveness and athletic ability are hard to miss.

UF quarterback Feleipe Franks is making much-needed progress.

UF tailback Jordan Scarlett expected to spend last fall chasing a 1,000-yard season.

UF long has made claim to the fictional title Defensive Back University — “DBU” for short.

Big-play UF sophomore Adarius Lemons looks to become a complete tailback for Gators

GAINESVILLE — UF tailback Adarius Lemons is a big play waiting to happen — that much is clear in his limited action.
