Source: Gators TE Daniel Imatorbhebhe to transfer

Jim McElwain’s first recruiting class at Florida was knocked by many for being too small, and now it just got even smaller.

Early enrollee Daniel Imatorbhebhe will transfer out of the program, per a source. Different sources have said the same thing to Scout.

Imatorbhebhe’s¬†younger brother, Josh, recently committed to Southern Cal. Daniel’s desire to join him, plus his lack of desire to compete with Jake McGee, DeAndre Goolsby and C’yontai Lewis for reps may have played a role in his decision. Either way, McElwain’s down a player, and a good one at that: he held offers from Nebraska, Missouri and Tennessee¬†along with Florida coming out of high school.

But despite his talent and infectious personality in the locker room, he’s replaceable, as he left a tight end corps that conceivably had three guys ahead of him, and so losing him is not the end of the world. I wish him the best moving on, but Florida will be fine in the long haul.

  1. Oh yippee, another transfer. I’m sick of this shit. We can’t even blame Muschump for this one because Imatorbhebhe committed to and signed to play for McElwain.

  2. He very well may want to play with his brother, but I’ve gotta think he was scared off by the competition. Competing with three other guys probably made him want out. He could have played with his brother at Florida if either was good enough. This is fine with me. He wants to go, let him go. Don’t need any pussies on our roster.

    1. Not so sure he’s a pussy for wanting to get more playing time. Regardless, we don’t need him. We’ve got three tight ends who are better.

  3. Welp… nothing to say but I wish him the best. He never really struck me as a guy who would have a huge impact. And on a personal level, good for him for figuring this out early enough that he can still make something of his college career.

  4. I doubt he would have ever seen the field, to be honest. Seems like one of those moves that benefits both teams- he gets to play more somewhere else and it frees up a scholarship for Florida.
