Dominique Easley will return to Florida for senior season, according to Pat Dooley

Mr. Chuckie has reportedly told coaches he'll return to Florida for the 2013 season.

It's buried at the bottom of an article about Jelani Jenkins' decision to enter the NFL Draft, but Pat Dooley of The Gainesville Sun is reporting something that has been rumored for a while: Junior defensive tackle Dominique Easley will return to Florida for his senior season.

Defensive tackle Dominique Easley, who said at the Sugar Bowl he would have a decision to make, has told coaches he plans to stay at UF.

Easley was considered a potential early-entry candidate, and would likely have been drafted had he come out, but has plenty of room to improve his stock with a senior season in Gainesville. Sliding back from the outside to interior defensive tackle positions where he can use his superior quickness could help him have an excellent senior season.

Florida's 2010 recruiting class had four five-star players, according to Rivals. With the departures of Matt Elam and Sharrif Floyd, Easley and Ronald Powell are the only two who will spend four years with the Gators.
