Florida Star Loucheiz Purifoy Prepares for Duel Role in 2013

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Loucheiz Purifoy's move to offense is not just a spring experiment.

Florida coach Will Muschamp said Tuesday that the 6-foot-1 junior cornerback will have an expanded role as a receiver this fall, making him the program's first two-way player since Keiwan Ratliff in 2002.

Ratliff, primarily a cornerback, caught just four passes for 58 yards and a touchdown that year.

Given the Gators' lack of talent and depth at receiver, Purifoy could have a much more significant impact in 2013.

Muschamp says Purifoy "needs to be in really, really good shape."

And Muschamp wasn't kidding.

In addition to cornerback and receiver, Purifoy will be a key player on special teams.
