Florida’s Bam-Bam Boys


Florida coach Jim McElwain calls 300-pound plus freshmen defensive tackles Tedarrell Slaton and Elijah Conliffe the Bam-Bam Boys, and at some point in the season they will be slamming into offensive fronts, apparently.

“I think those guys are going to be ready as the season wears on. I’m happy with what we’ve been able to do there,” McElwain said.

Another true freshman defensive tackle, early enrollee Kyree Campbell, apparently is going to have an immediate impact this season.

“Kyree has made huge strides,” McElwain said.
