GAINESVILLE -- Junior strong safety Ahmad Black is returning to Florida for his senior season, according to his father.
Bruce Black informed The Miami Herald on Saturday night that Ahmad "decided to stay in school and get his stock up in next year's NFL Draft." Ahmad, a two-year starter for the Gators, had a breakout season in 2008 and followed it up with another excellent effort in 2009. Black had 70 tackles this season.
Black is one of two returning starters among the Florida Gators secondary. Cornerback Janoris Jenkins will be a junior next season.
