"I am very thankful for my time at UVA and I will always consider myself a Wahoo," he said. "I have tremendous respect for Coach London and this football team, but I have decided to pursue my future career elsewhere. This is a personal decision and in no way should reflect on this team or it's coaches. I want to thank my teammates, coaches, and especially the Wahoo fans for the endless support. Go Hoos."
The Gators are looking for a shot in the arm on offense. And couldn't replace the loss of NFL star tight end Jordan Reed in 2013 after the 2012 season when he left early for the professional ranks.
Insert McGee, a seasoned veteran and pass catcher who can also play on the line of scrimmage. He would provide instant experience in the passing game that the Gators just do not have. Florida tight ends totaled four catches for 42 yards a year ago.
No word yet on a final decision for McGee, but it does appear that Florida is firmly in the mix. Stay tuned as we follow the movement for this prime time player.
