Brown Dismissed from Football Squad
Brown came to camp last summer out of shape and evidently with a bad attitude. He never saw the field of play and was a constant interruption to the team off the field.
"Gary Brown has had a history during his time here of not meeting a set of expectations we have for the student athletes in our football program and therefore he is no longer part of our program," team spokesman and Sports Information Director Steve McClain said.
The decision was made by "the staff", while Urban Meyer is on his leave of absence to take care of his own health.
Brown joins fellow five-star prospects John Brown and Torrey Davis, both of the 2007 class to leave the team early due to one reason or another.
The Gators expect much more from the members of the team and seem to have a very bright and respectable trio of defensive tackles in Sharrif Floyd, Dominique Easley, and Leon Orr that all signed in the 2010 class. Floyd and Easley are also 5-star prospects.
Freshman Omar Hunter of the 2008 class was another 5-star defensive tackle prospect and started most of the 2009 season and seems to have all his priorities in order as well.
