Top-ranked JUCO RB Mark Thompson signs with Florida

The Florida Gators were known for their pretty scary defense all this year, but they are looking to get their offense back on track. It looks like next season that they will have a pretty powerful rushing attack to go along with their returning passing prowess.

The team will return leading rusher Kelvin Taylor next season, but they also just added on another key piece. The nation’s top-ranked JUCO running back Mark Thompson officially signed with the Gators on Wednesday as he and head coach Jim McElwain both confirmed it via Twitter.
