Facts

Depth chart heading into August

41-Hunter Joyer
25-Gideon Ajagbe
29-Rhaheim Ledbetter

A closer look at what we learned about this upcoming group of Gators from spring practice. Fullback Progress report: The coaches knew they had a good and proven starter in Hunter Joyer, but there was no proven depth behind him. That has changed. Two former defensive players — linebacker Gideon Ajagbe and safety Rhaheim Ledbetter — were moved to fullback and both have shown they can play.


Spring surprise: It has to be a tie between Ajagbe and Ledbetter. They've come out of nowhere to stabilize the position. Spring star: Joyer has done his usual thing, helping to clear a path for the tailbacks in the downhill running game.
