ATLANTA — Two of the Gators' top offensive weapons are still making up their minds about whether to return next season or enter the NFL draft.

"I haven't really been too focused on that," running back Jordan Scarlett said Thursday morning as Florida prepares for Saturday's Peach Bowl against Michigan. "I was trying to wait until the end of the season."

Scarlett, a redshirt junior, is UF's No. 2 rusher with 717 yards.

Receiver Van Jefferson, another redshirt junior, was also tight-lipped about whether he'll return to UF next season.

"We're going to see after the bowl game and things like that…" Jefferson said. "But I've got an idea of what I want to do."

Jefferson is UF's leading receiver with 31 catches for 43 yards and six touchdowns.
