UF’s Loucheiz Purifoy will reportedly make jump to NFL

As expected, Florida lost its season finale against Florida State.  Just as expected, the Gators have lost one of its top defensive players to the professional ranks as well.

ESPN.com’s Joe Schad tweeted Saturday that, following the loss to the Seminoles, Loucheiz Purifoy told him that he will leave eligibility on the table and make himself available for the 2014 NFL draft.  For what it’s worth, the football program has yet to confirm the cornerback’s impending departure.

This season, Purifoy intercepted a pair of passes, returning one for a touchdown.  His seven pass breakups were tied for second on the team, while he added 3.5 tackles for loss and two sacks.

Purifoy started seven games this season and 19 in his career.

    Great choice Loucheiz. Especially after watching Kelvin Benjamin swat you around like a fat cat does a half dead mouse. But I’m sure the Calvin Johnsons of the world will be real nice to you at the next level.

    Really, he doesn’t want to stick around for another four wins next year?

    Purifoy was on the yeam this year ? Huh. I recall hearimg he’d be on the team. I recall hearing he’d be a two way player. I recall hearing he’d be a Thorpe candidate. But I don’t remember a single time he made a play.

    4-8. 4-8. 4-8. 4-8. 4-8. 4-8.

    Any decent Juniors are jumping ship. Next the recruits we brought in for FSU decide next year will be no better than 7-5 and they want to win championships, so we lose them. Then Ego Ostrich Foley tries to save his job by Zooking Muschamp mid season.

    End result? A decade of mediocrity. Look what happened to FSU when they refused to put Bowden to pasture when it was time.

    Gatorfan1: $100 to ACS on the way. I was wrong.

    modhairken:

    I appreciate you making good on the bet. This could make a difference in someone’s life.

    Thanks,
