Florida’s offensive line faces major depth concerns, but one massive freshman is already turning heads in camp and is creeping into the rotation among the veterans.
David Sharpe, a 6-6, 336-pound offensive tackle, has impressed UF’s staff all summer with his athleticism and work ethic, and coach Will Muschamp said he will be counted on to contribute immediately.
“He’s done everything we’ve asked of him in the weight room, in the classroom, and I’ve been very pleased to this point with his buy-in,” Muschamp said.
“He’s extremely talented, extremely smart. He’s a guy that we’re counting on to give us some help this year.”
The Gators return just six linemen with any collegiate experience and are perilously thin at the tackle position.
“Pressure makes diamonds,” junior left tackle D.J. Humphries said. “Everybody is ready to accept the pressure and turn it up and take it to the next level. David is a big kid. He’s huge. He’s going to be a good player here in the future.”D.J. Humphries Trip Thurman Max Garcia Chaz Green
