Five-star DT Thomas Holley out for season, will redshirt for Florida Gators

Five-star DT out for season, will redshirt

Five-star freshman defensive tackle Thomas Holley underwent season-ending surgery Monday to repair a torn labrum stemming from a high school sports hernia injury, coach Will Muschamp announced.

Holley, the nation’s No. 18 overall player according to 247Sports, is expected to be sidelined roughly four months and will redshirt.

The 6-foot-4, 285-pound defensive tackle was a long-shot to compete for a rotational spot up front, as Holley was bothered by scar tissue throughout training camp and was unable to practice.

Meanwhile, sophomore nickel back Marcus Maye (hamstring) and freshman left tackle David Sharpe (high-ankle sprain) will miss practice this week but are both expected to return to action on Aug. 25. Senior offensive guard Trenton Brown is day-to-day with a foot contusion.

THIS & THAT



The Gators play six teams ranked in the preseason top 25, becoming the first team since 2010 Penn State to face off against preseason No. 1 (Florida State) and No. 2 (Alabama).
