Gator Tidbits

With a new recruiting class, we are also having to say farewell to some current Gators who have chosen to transfer from the Gator program. Among them is second string quarterback Jacoby Brissett. After fighting for the starting position right up to the first game of the season, Brissett found himself on the bench for most of the season. He played in 13 career games at Florida as a quarterback, including two starts in 2011, at LSU and at Auburn, and one start in 2012 against Jacksonville State. Brissett completed 41-of-74 career pass attempts for 455 yards with three touchdowns and four interceptions.

 Chris Johnson, from my neck of the woods (Ocala) is also planning on transferring. Johnson, who played safety and running back while at Florida, saw action in all 26 games in his two years on campus, mostly as a special teams’ ace. He totaled 19 career tackles on kickoff and punt coverage and recovered a fumble against South Carolina in 2012 which he returned to the one-yard line. He totaled five carries for 35 yards as a running back in 2012.
