It’s no secret that the Gators want to play faster.
Mike White has been open about the fact he’s wanted to play up-tempo and it’s a sentiment that has been echoed by the players on multiple occasions. Many fans would be happy to see that style played, especially with the roster’s athleticism and footspeed improved recently. Unfortunately, despite playing fast being a focus, the Gators have spent the last two seasons playing at a methodical pace.
Now that the Gators will be returning some pieces and inserting some quick-footed athletes in transfers Tyree Appleby and Anthony Duruji as well as bouncy freshman wings Samson Ruzhentsev and Niels Lane they’ll have the opportunity to really accelerate pace—if it’s possible.
