Report: Florida Gators Likely To Land Virginia Transfer Jake McGee

Kurt Roper may soon have a new 6’6, 250 pound receiving threat to plug into his revamped Gators offense. According to the Gainesville Sun’s Robbie Andreu, Florida is the front-runner to land Virginia tight end transfer Jake McGee.

McGee led the Cavaliers in receptions (43) and yards (395) last season, and had two of his team’s nine receiving touchdowns. In 2012, his five touchdowns were tied for the team lead.

According to the Washington Post, McGee never developed into the blocking tight end his coaches desired. By season’s end he was second on the depth chart and used only in passing situations. McGee was listed as a wide receiver and H-back entering spring practice.

The departure from Virginia does not appear to be acrimonious, as he received coach Mike London’s blessing following the decision.

“I want to thank Jake for his contributions to the Virginia program and wish him the best,” London said in a statement. “When I came to U-Va., he was one of the first players we recruited because he had committed to play for me at Richmond. I am very proud of the fact he will graduate from the University this spring. I hope he finds a program that fits his desires for his final season as a college player.”

McGee will add a veteran presence to the Gators receiving corps, and fill the void left by departed senior leader Trey Burton.
