Demps Will Play For The Gators

For the past few weeks, a rumor has circulated around the Sunshine State and across the internet — Florida’s leading rusher from a year ago was giving up football for track.

But Jeff Demps said yesterday on UF’s website that that rumor wasn’t true:

“I concentrated on track this past spring and summer and I’m now ready to concentrate on football.  I’m looking forward to getting back together with my football teammates and having a great senior season.”

The diminutive speedster rushed for a team-high 551 yards in 2011.  He has averaged 7.1 yards per carry during his three-year career, though that figure is a bit skewed by the spread-option system that featured him.

It will be interesting to see how offensive coordinator Charlie Weis can take advantage of his skills this fall.  Demps is not the prototypical SEC back.  But Weis is not the prototypical SEC playcaller, either.
