Marlon Gonzalez redshirted last year, but will be looking to make an impact up front for the Bulls this season.
#95 Marlon Gonzalez – 6’4″ 280 lbs – Redshirt freshman – Defensive tackle – Cape Coral, FL (North Fort Myers HS)
2015: Gonzalez redshirted last year for the Bulls.
Recruiting history: Gonzalez was a 3-star recruit in the 2015 class (per Rivals). He was named Florida All State Class 5A First Team during his career and posted 53 tackles with 6 TFL during his junior season. He had offers from Arizona, Florida, Cincinnati, and Miami, among many other teams.
2016 Projection: The Bulls need some depth up front on the defensive line and Gonzalez has the potential to make an impact this season. While he was not on the spring depth chart like Eric Mayes was, he has the chance to make his way up the depth chart and at least, at the minimum, become a rotational player up front that can add some depth up front for the defense. It will be interesting to see how he develops in the fall and if he can get onto the field for some snaps.
