Overview:

The Pouncey name means something at Florida and Ethan Pouncey is ready to add on to the family legacy. The former four-star cornerback and his brother Jordan, a receiver for the Gators, are the cousins of legendary Florida linemen Mike and Maurkice Pouncey.

Pouncey didn’t play a game in his first year due to season-ending hip surgery. With Jaydon Hill going down for the year with an ACL tear, Pouncey has a chance to fight for snaps. Coach Dan Mullen has mentioned Pouncey in a group of young players that could receive playing time as a result of the spot opening up. Even if he doesn’t play much, he has tons of eligibility left.

The concern with Pouncey as a recruit was that he didn’t have the size necessary to compete at the FBS level, but Florida’s strength and conditioning team has helped him bulk up over the summer. After bulking up, Pouncy could see some real development this year.

During spring camp, Pouncey showed flashes of speed and began tracking the ball well. If he can keep his skills consistent with the added weight, he could be the next Pouncey to go down in Gators history.
