 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  After the display Kyle Pitts put on in the win over Ole Miss last Saturday, everyone seems to agree that he is a tight end with wide receiver skills and speed. Many are just finding that out. The UF coaches knew almost right away after he arrived on campus two years ago that he was going to be a potential mismatch for opposing defensive backs and linebackers. "It was in training camp his freshman year," offensive coordinator Brian Johnson said. "It was just a matter of him kind of growing into the position. He was actually (wide receiver) Van (Jefferson's) backup our first year in 2018. We played him a little bit more outside just because he had so much talent - a huge catch radius, he's fast, he can get in and out of breaks. "And then he kind of grew into what we saw in terms of him being an elite tight end. It was fairly early on. He was a guy that as a young player, as a freshman, he played behind Van and really had a chance to learn from him. We put him in the game, he made some plays. He continued to develop and grow, and now he's in a position where he's one of the best players in America."

The Kyle-to-Kyle connection (Trask to Pitts) produced eight receptions for 170 yards and four touchdowns in the 51-35 victory over the Rebels. It looks like this has a chance to become a big deal in college football this season. Pitts said there is no secret to it. "I think our chemistry comes from preparation," he said. "Times during the week where we start practicing running routes, maybe I drop the ball or he didn't like how it looks so we just run it again. And in the offseason, did a lot of talking together, a lot of routes, a lot of work with the receiver corps and tight ends, the whole offense. I feel like our connection is good. It's grown. Each week we put more trust in what we do." - Gainesville Sun
