Gators' Jeff Demps runs fastest 100 meters this season



Forget the concern over Florida running back Jeff Demps missing all of spring football practice so he can concentrate on track.

After what Demps pulled off on Friday, UF coach Urban Meyer said Demps can call the shots any time he wants. And he full expects him to be ready to play football in the fall.

The sophomore ran a 10.11 in the 100 meters at the Florida Relays on Friday, which is currently the fastest time in the world in 2010.

"He can do whatever he wants to do,'' Meyer said when asked about Demps' performance. "Fastest man in the world, someone told me. And a great kid. But he’ll be ready to go (in August).''
