Gators’ Loucheiz Purifoy: A Triple Threat

Gators_Lucheiz_Purifoy_2013 [1]Florida cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy couldn’t help but notice himself all over a few of the preseason college football magazines, yet he insists it’s not as if he spent a lot of time searching for them.

But after a breakout season last year, Purifoy is a rising star. The news that the junior from Pensacola is positioned to become a three-way player — cornerback, receiver, special teams — just added to the hype.

But he wants Florida fans to know nothing has changed where he’s concerned.

“I know a lot of people are talking about me, talking about me maybe playing both ways, but honestly I’m not even thinking about that,” Purifoy said. “To me, it’s really not that big of a deal. I did it in high school. I’ve done it since I started playing football. I know it’s different when you do it in college, not too many guys do it. But I’m just taking it day by day. I’m still the same guy I’ve always been. I just want to be the best I can be for my team.”
