Reports: Gators add offensive line help

The offensive line has been Jim McElwain’s biggest challenge to fix since taking over, and he reportedly added another body to the position on Sunday.

North Carolina State offensive lineman T.J. McCoy will transfer to Florida and will be immediately eligible in 2015, according to multiple reports, including the Orlando Sentinel. The Groveland, Fla., product went to South Lake High School, home of former Florida football players Jeff Demps, Jonotthan Harrison and Carlton Medder.

McCoy, a three-star offensive lineman in the 2015 class, graduated early and enrolled at N.C. State for spring practice. However, he elected to transfer and will end up at Florida. Listed at 6-3, 285 pounds, Scout ranked McCoy as the No. 103 offensive guard in the country. He is the son of former Florida defensive tackle Tony McCoy, who played nine years in the NFL after leaving Gainesville.

The Gators have been searching for offensive line depth after exiting spring practice with only seven healthy scholarship offensive linemen.
