At Gulf, standout senior Leon Orr plays tight end, defensive end and defensive tackle. The question is, which position will the player Rivals.com rates as one of the 100 best in the Class of 2010 end up playing at the University of Florida, the school he committed to awhile back?

“They’re bringing him in as a defensive tackle,” Gulf coach Jay Fulmer said.

That said, Fulmer wouldn’t be surprised to see the 6-foot-5, 315-pound Orr ultimately land at another spot.

“Because he’s such a good athlete, he could be moved to end,” Fulmer said. “Or they could have him gain more weight, get stronger and make him play left tackle, which is where the money’s at.”

Whatever happens, Fulmer is sure of one thing: Orr, who is currently sidelined with a  fractured leg, will thrive.

“I think he’s the best player in the country,” Fulmer said.
