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.
