Florida freshman Demarcus Robinson making "consistent" push for playing time
Florida freshman WR Demarcus Robinson's spectacular play in the Gators' first open practice on Thursday night was a crowd-pleaser for the fans, but nothing new for the coaches and players who have been inside practice with him all fall.
Robinson fired up the crowd with his one-handed, fingertip grab down the sidelines of a long pass thrown from QB Jeff Driskel, but UF coach Will Muschamp said it was no surprise.
“He’s been pretty consistently making some vertical plays for us down the field," Muschamp said. "He’s got really good ball skills. He’s got natural instincts in running routes and doing those sort of things. So it’s been a very positive thing for our offense.”
Robinson, a native of Fort Valley, Ga., has more than 1,000 receivnig yards on 53 recpetions in his senior season.
