Florida’s Kyle Pitts is one of the best tight ends in the country and a likely first-round NFL draft pick next year, and you will get to see him this coming Saturday in Florida’s game against Kentucky.
Pitts had been out since taking a vicious hit in the Gators’ win over Georgia, causing him to miss two straight games with a concussion. It was so bad Pitts needed nasal surgery, but Dan Mullen announced today his superstar is expected to play against the Wildcats.
“We’re excited,” Mullen added, while shutting down any rumors suggesting Pitts may opt out. Pitts wanted to play against Vanderbilt, he noted.
Prior to suffering the head injury, Pitts had 24 receptions for 414 yards and a staggering 17.3 yards per catch, plus eight receiving touchdowns, in only four full games and a little over a quarter at UGA.
Needless to say, this does not help Kentucky’s chances in Gainesville as Pitts is the centerpiece of Florida’s attack.
