Florida’s secondary may have lost CJ Henderson to the NFL Draft, but it looks like the rest of it will remain intact for 2020.
First, cornerback Marco Wilson announced his intentions to put off the call of the NFL and come back for another year. Now, safety Shawn Davis has followed suit.
I will be returning to the University of Florida for the year of 2020. Our team has a lot of potential and lots of unfinished business to handle and I will be apart of this Gator journey one last time. I’m anxious to get back with my brothers for this upcoming season…🐊 pic.twitter.com/qtBAjffasw

Davis should once again help Wilson anchor the secondary with his veteran leadership. After a sophomore season in 2018, Davis broke out in 2019 with three interceptions- two of which helped Florida seal its breathtaking 29-21 victory over Kentucky, and the third of which served as a catalyst for Florida’s 24-13 statement win over Auburn. He also accumulated 51 tackles, including one for a loss, and broke up three passes last year.
So now with Davis, Wilson, Kaiir Elam, Chester Kimbrough, Jaydon Hill and Brad Stewart coming back, it’s safe to say that Florida should be just fine in the secondary in 2020.
