It was essentially a no-brainer for the senior to receive the extension waiver since it was during summer camp last August that Debose tore his ACL and didn’t play in 2013. Also, Debose missed his entire true freshman season in 2009 because of an injury he suffered in high school.
Debose was a five-star member of UF’s recruiting class and he was rated as the No. 2 receiver in the country by Rivals.com.
He appeared in 31 games and made eight starts from 2010-12. He has 29 career catches for 543 yards and four touchdowns. Debose has done the majority of his damage on special teams and his four career kickoff returns for touchdowns boast the school record and they’re tied for the most in SEC history.
