LOOK: Florida RB signee Jordan Scarlett got one of the best Gators tattoos you will ever see

Four-star incoming freshman running back Jordan Scarlett is not the first Florida Gators football player to ink a school logo on his body, but the tattoo he shared on social media Tuesday afternoon may be one of the best such pieces of body art of all-time.

Scarlett tweeted this picture of his leg (see below), which is now adorned with the standing Albert alternate logo that was first introduced at Florida in 1992. It was updated in 2003 to adjust the font style of the “F” on Albert’s sweater and bear a greater resemblance to the team’s Gator head logo, which itself has been around since 1995.

A late addition to Florida’s 2015 recruiting class, Scarlett committed to the Gators on Feb. 2, two days before National Signing Day. At the time of his verbal pledge, Scarlett (5-foot-11, 222 pounds) was the highest-rated member of Florida’s class.

The four-star prospect, who checked in at No. 118 overall on the 247Sports Composite, is expected to compete for playing time as a true freshman with junior Kelvin Taylor, redshirt sophomore Adam Lane Jr. and fellow first-year Gators running back Jordan Cronkrite, also a four-star pledge.

    That is awesome. Could be my new favorite player now that Dante is gone.

    That’s awesome…but the original version is a million times better than that 2003 monstrosity.

      Check out the eyes. The 2003 Gator looks tougher than the slightly confused, bewildered and almost scared looking eyes on the 1992. But you’ve got to love any bipedal UF sweater-wearing Gator with his fists all balled up and ready to fight! Ha ha!

      Go Gators!!!
