Shelton equipped to handle the challenge ahead

Gators defensive tackle Antonio Shelton finds himself in a bit of a challenging situation.

A transfer from Penn State, Shelton must learn a new defensive scheme, get used to living in a vastly different part of the country, get acclimated to a new set of teammates and adjust to the new techniques he’s being taught by defensive line coach David Turner. He was given only about nine months of time to do all of that prior to UF’s first game against Florida Atlantic on Sept. 4.

Oh, and he doesn’t have the luxury of easing his way into the program.
