08/03/16 - CB Vernon Hargreaves has been mostly with the second-team defense during the first week of training camp while he cross-trains at outside right cornerback and the nickel defensive back position in the slot. Coach Dirk Koetter said the Florida star will start to get reps with the first-team defense this week. "I don't think of that as any different than a wide receiver that learns how to play in multiple spots or an offensive lineman that learns how to play different spots'' Koetter said. "We'll start working Vernon with the first scrums on Wednesday when we get back after the (day off). He'll start rotating in there with the first group as I said in the spring, the guy is a good football player, he's going to play, he's doing a nice job, his athleticism shows up every day. That doesn't mean at all that we're disappointed in Jude (Adjei-Barimah) because Jude is doing a good job too. We're building our depth at corner especially. I like what we're seeing out of those guys."
06/09/16 - CB Vernon Hargreaves, the team's first-round pick, is slowly working his way into the starting lineup.

Brent Grimes has been down the last few days. We have great competition. We're trying to get competition at every position. Vernon Hargreaves and Alterraun Verner have both stood out as far as the last few days, as far as making plays."
12/09/15 - 2015 ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): DB Vernon Hargreaves III, Florida...Hargreaves matched Jalen Tabor with four interceptions and had 152 return yards for UF. - Florida Football
11/25/15 - 2015 JIM THORPE AWARD FINALIST: Vernon Hargreaves III, Florida...Hargreaves leads one of the nationís top pass defenses, a unit that ranks 10th in passing yards allowed per game (173.5) and limits opposing quarterbacks to a 102.23 rating (eighth nationally). In addition, teams only average 5.60 yards per pass attempt against the Gators, a figure that ranks seventh in the country. Individually, Hargreaves has totaled four interceptions (tied for third in the SEC) and has 152 interception return yards. Hargreaves was named First Team All-America as a sophomore and First Team All-SEC as both a sophomore and freshman.
09/20/15 - Every time Kentucky's pressure seemed to have Will Grier within reach, the Florida quarterback scrambled away to run for crucial yards including the Gators' first touchdown. Unfazed by zero yards passing in the first quarter, the redshirt freshman settled in to make key throws to set up the Gators' only other TD and keep the clock moving. Florida's stingy defense then did the rest to make it stand. Will Grier and Kelvin Taylor each rushed for short touchdowns, the Gators' defense registered six sacks for 50 yards and two interceptions and Florida held off Kentucky 14-9 Saturday night to extend its winning streak over the Wildcats to 29 games.
Defense was definitely the story for the Gators on a night in which they barely outgained the Wildcats 245-241. Challenged several times to make a 14-3 halftime lead stick as Kentucky threatened, Florida left the Wildcats settling for two Austin MacGinnis field goals before Quincy Wilson's interception with 33 seconds left sealed the hard-fought road win. That was no easy task before a blue-clad sellout crowd hungry for Kentucky to end a generation of misery against Florida, which continued the nation's longest active winning streak over an opponent. But then, the Gators (3-0, 1-0 SEC) did have All-SEC Conference cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III back from a leg injury that kept him out of last week's win over East Carolina. And he got things going early with a 53-yard interception return leading to Grier's 1-yard run. - AP Sports
