Blakely to Transfer

University of Florida football coach Will Muschamp announced on Tuesday that running back Mike Blakely intends to transfer from the program.

"Mike has come to the conclusion that the University of Florida is not where he wants to play football," said Muschamp. "We wish him the best of luck."

Blakely, a 5-9, 198-pound freshman from Manatee High School, missed spring drills while rehabbing a shoulder injury.

"Everyone at Florida has been very supportive of me in my time here and I'm thankful for the experience that I had, but I've made a decision to continue my college football career somewhere else" Blakely said.
