The Gators have been installing parts of the offense and defense throughout the spring. But the actual schemes will not be developed until the coaches have a better idea what their players do best.
“The scheme will come,” UF coach Dan Mullen said. “We’re doing a lot of different random things and maybe not everything ties together right now.
“We’re going to get to see what guys can do. Now we come back to it as coaches and say, ‘OK, this is what our guys can do, this is what they handle, this is where we’re pretty good. Now let’s build around their strengths and put the package together both offensively and defensively.’
“We’re putting guys in the best position to be successful instead of trying to teach them everything.”
Other than a shoulder injury sustained by redshirt freshman linebacker Lacedrick Brunson, the Gators came out of Saturday’s scrimmage healthy.
“Brunson has got a banged-up shoulder,” Mullen said. “He could finish spring or not. I’m going to see how that goes. We’re going to get an MRI done to see if he needs some work done. Everybody else should be good to go (for Saturday’s game).”
Sophomore running back Adarius Lemons turned his ankle in the scrimmage, but he’s fine, Mullen said.
“Just a mild ankle sprain,” he said. “I don’t expect him to be out.”
