    The Gators will have a 15-minute open media portion of today’s practice. I will be focusing and watching the defense today. Stay tuned for coverage starting in roughly 30 minutes.

    DB Dakota Mitchell, TE Jonathan Odom, and OL Richard Gouraige are still in black no-contact jerseys. Odom is participating in drills, Gouraige and Mitchell are off to the side

    Defensive backs are primarily working on breaks and dropping back in coverage. Not broken up into 1st team/2nd team, but Devin Moore was working with the 1st team when we first arrived

    Jaydon Hill is not dressed out at all today. He’s in a shirt and workout shorts off to the side in the IPF

    Some other notes:

    Ricky Pearsall (ankle) was a full participant today after an injury scare yesterday.

    Trey Dean, Rashad Torrence II and Donovan McMillan spent a lot of the individual drills with Corey Raymond and the corners and nickels.

    However, when the DBs and LBs were working together, they were back at the safety spot

    Did not get a picture, but Chris Thomas Jr was at practice today after being put back onto the roster. Thomas was a part of the three scholarship players (along with Fenley Graham and Mordecai McDaniel) who were cut from the program in late June. Jacob Rudner of 247 Sports has a picture.

    Final thoughts: There really wasn’t much to observe or base off of today.

    I watched a little bit of Jaydon Hill’s workout in the IPF, and it’s possible he’s still recovering from his ACL tear nearly a year ago (tore it on the first day of fall camp in 2021). However, he’s obviously not 100% as he’s not even dressed out, but he looked like he got a lot of his speed and mobility back.

    Ricky Pearsall’s “injury” from yesterday looks like a thing of the past.

    OL Kaleb Boateng and Nicolas Flynn (walk-on freshman) worked with the DL today despite being listed as OL on the roster. Chris Thomas Jr. made his return to the DL group as well. This is most likely due to the lack of depth on the defensive side and plentiful depth on the offensive (similar to the DE’s who switched to TE in the spring).

    There are somethings with Jaydon Hill that is not being reported and there is a reason why the team doesn’t want it reported.

    Napier talked about Hill still not being ready to go today.
