"With a lot of consideration and prayer I would like to say that I will not be playing my final year of eligibility at the University of Florida," said Dillard. "I will graduate transfer and pursue my masters. This schools has provided me with a great education and even better friends that I will cherish for the rest of my life. It has been a great ride here with great people surrounding me.
"I am excited to see what God has in store for my family and I. I am excited for this adventure and thank you to everyone that has had an impact on my life the last four years."
Dillard had eight starts this season, but was forced to sit out after his injury against Arkansas. The offensive lineman had 19 career starts for the Gators.
