Two and a half weeks into spring practice, Florida Gators head coach Jim McElwain is speaking positively about the prospects of his team’s offense.
Fulwood’s emergence could be huge (no pun intended regarding the 6’5″ receiver). He’s always had the physical abilities to be a top target, but through three seasons has only recorded two touchdowns and less than 400 yards as a Gator.

McElwain’s praise has got to be music to Gators fans’ ears after what they’ve seen in the last five seasons.
In 2015, the offensive minded McElwain’s first year, Florida finished 111th out of 127 FBS teams in total offense, averaging only 334 yards per game. Since Urban Meyer left following the 2010 season, the Gators haven’t finished a season higher than 97th.
So any sign of hope should be welcomed.
Fans can see for themselves just how the offense is shaping up at the Orange and Blue Debut on April 8.
