Gator football team ready for big spring

Brunson said four or five guys will work at receiver, and he likes what he has seen from Jacob Nixon, Josh Long, David Oglesby, Jack Wilkinson and Josh Mayhew.

The coach also is comfortable with the offensive line, even with the losses of starting offensive linemen Dakota Campbell, Jake Rainey and Kodi Nixon to graduation.

"We are going to be fine on the offensive line," he said. "Those guys have done a great job of improving their strength levels and we are going to be strong and physical. If they work hard on their pad level, we will be just fine."


Time to step up

Brunson's biggest concerns are on the defensive side, where Baker lost the four starting defensive linemen.

"Defensively, we've got to have some guys up front step up," Brunson said. Strength wise we've got some guys (that should be able to play). They've got some big shoes to fill because, up front defensively, we were pretty good."
