One of Florida’s best offensive weapons comes back this week. Dan Mullen announced Monday junior tight end Kyle Pitts is set for a return for the Gators’ clash against Kentucky on Saturday.
Pitts missed the last two games after he suffered a concussion against Georgia. But his teammates filled in for him just nicely.
Redshirt junior Kemore Gamble and sophomore Keon Zipperer both posted a multi-catch, multi-score game for Florida over the last two weeks. In the 63-35 win over Arkansas, Zipperer tallied 47 yards and two scores on three catches. Gamble posted three catches for 66 yards and two touchdowns against Vanderbilt. That includes the putaway score late in the fourth quarter where Zipperer made a key block to give Gamble a path to the endzone.
Now, Pitts is back and that makes the Florida offense even more explosive knowing it has a full range of weapons at the tight end position.
Not only is Pitts back but junior James Houston IV is also set to return against the Wildcats. The Gators saw the likes of Mohamoud Diabate, Tryon Hopper and Jesiah Pierre rotate into that spot alongside Ventrell Miller.
With a possible meeting against Alabama looming in Atlanta, it’s important for the Gators to get up to full speed and strength in the regular season’s closing weeks.
