Jabari Gorman brings experience to Florida Gators’ secondary

 

Miami Herald Writer

Secondary experience

Senior safety Jabari Gorman is a rare veteran in Florida’s secondary, but the former Monsignor Pace standout hasn’t been guaranteed a starting job yet.

The Miami native is fine with that, embracing the competition against two freshmen and several other underclassmen.

“It’s a good thing, I’m competing,” Gorman said. “Doing that keeps me going every day. I don’t want to be too settled down, I want to be grinding and working and get other guys to work better so we can all be a great team and a deep secondary.”

Gorman brings some much-needed experience to the secondary, as the 5-10, 184-pound free safety played in all 12 games last season, making five starts and finishing sixth on the team in tackles (48).

Coach Will Muschamp expressed confidence in Gorman, saying the senior has done “a great job communicating in the back.”
