From Will Muschamp on this morning's SEC Teleconference. Looks like it will depend on everybody around Purifoy to determine how much he's needed on offense this fall:
“Right now, the way I’ve got it planned is for the first 12 days (of fall drills), he is strictly on defense. I want to see how these young wideouts continue to develop, how the guys developed through the summer, where they are, and through those first 12 practices, you’re not going to find that out if we play him on offense. So we’ll play him strictly on defense the first 12 days and after that, make a decision. He is going to play offense for us – how much will depend on those first 12-14 practices on where we develop at the position and how much he’s going to need to help us.
“He’s an electric guy, he’s got no fear on the field, he’s got really good ball skills, he’s got vertical speed down the field, he can do some things for us. I was really pleased with his first seven days (in spring practice) at the receiver position, so now he has a base learning, concepts-wise of what we are offensively, so that helps him.”
I guess this means he wants to see how Drob, Fulwood, Andrades and Pittman develop
Hopefully we won't need him on offense. That means our wideouts are finally getting it and if one of the 4 coming in the fall (Fullwood, Hawkins, Bailey or Thompson) standout that would be great.
doubtful on fireworks but the offense will definitely be chasing the standard.
also tells me their big test in seeing how much they've developed will be by going against a CB like Purifoy
LORD FORGIVE ME FOR THE GOON DADDY IS COMING OUT TONIGHT
Excellent point, really hoping that we see him very little on O, because our WR's step up.

I hope Purifoy concentrates on defense the vast majority of the time, along with special teams. It wouldn't be a bad idea to have him in on some jet sweeps or deep balls, with play-action thrown in there. But he's going to be playing defense in the NFL.
Walk softly but carry a big stick
Do not expect anything less from Muschamp. He gets it.

I agree Hawkins
I've seen UF's receivers. He's needed on offense.
I know what the coaches are saying, but I think LP is going to be on offense a lot this fall. I expect UF to get the ball in his hands a variety of ways.
