Report: Six Florida football player transferring from Gators

Thursday was a bittersweet day for the Florida football program. The Gators landed two top recruits, including five-star offensive lineman David Sharpe, but also lost a slew of players to transfers – all of them from the offensive side of the ball.

In total, six players are transferring from the program, including: sophomore tight end Kent Taylor, redshirt freshman fullback Raheim Ledbetter, redshirt freshman offensive lineman Ian Silberman, redshirt freshman offensive lineman Quinteze Williams, freshman quarterback Max Staver and freshman offensive lineman Trayon Young.

The most shocking of the transfers is former No. 1 tight end recruit Taylor. The 6’5, 220 pound Land O’Lakes native was the No. 54 overall prospect in the class of 2012, according to Rivals.com. He redshirted in 2013 after suffering an ankle injury. Taylor would have likely come into 2014 competing for the starting role.

On Thursday Taylor sent out the following tweet.

Unfortunately, transfers are part of the game of college football. Muschamp understands that, and wished the players the best of luck following their decisions.

“These young men felt it was in their best interest to look for an opportunity to play somewhere else,’’ Muschamp said. “We wish all of them the best of luck.”

Considering the state of Florida’s offense in 2013, it’s difficult watching so many players on that side of the ball decide to go elsewhere.
