In our second Q&A with a 2010 Gator commit, we have Lithonia, Ga., running back Mack Brown. He spent most of the spring trying to heal a bum hamstring. He an a 4.4 in the 40-yard dash a few months back and should be even closer to 100 percent. Interesting note on Brown, he said he’s not really used to having a playbook, but he’s been studying Florida’s nonstop. In high school, he says he kind of directed himself in the offense.
What have you done since signing with your Letter of Intent?
I’ve just been training and trying to get stronger with my workouts. It’s going pretty good. I gained about 12 pounds and got stronger and faster, and my hamstring is holding up pretty good.
What’s the biggest thing you’ve wanted to work on before you get on campus?
The only thing is I want to work on my pass protection. You have to protect the quarterback because the quarterback is the nucleus of the offense. You have to protect him so the offense can go.
What weight did you or Florida’s coaches want you to be at before you report and what weight are you currently at?
I’m 198. I was at 202 pounds and they want me at 205 before the season. I gain weight real fast.
When will you report to campus?
I get on campus June 22.
Do you know who your roommate might be?
I think Michael Taylor and Dominique Easley. I’ve never stayed in a room with somebody, so I have to get used to it.
What do you think the biggest challenge will be once you get to Florida?
Just getting by without your parents and stuff like that. Football is football. I don’t really worry about that. I’m just coming in to try and make the offense succeed a little more and do whatever I can to help us win next season.
