Ex-Gator TE stays in-state, lands at USF

Mike McFarland

A little over a month after it was announced that he was leaving FloridaMike McFarland has found himself a new collegiate football home.

In a press release, USF confirmed that the tight end has transferred to the Bulls and will work out with the team Friday.

The release also states USF will inquire about a waiver through the NCAA that would allow him to compete for the Bulls this season as opposed to sitting out the entire year as normally required for a transfer from one Div. 1-A school to another.  The grounds for seeking a waiver were not revealed in the release.

McFarland was a three-star member of UF’s 2010 recruiting class, but was a redshirt last season after dressing for three games.

    Looks like USF takes every kid that quits or is arrested at another D1 school. They must have taken at least 7 transfers and almost every kid Florida has kicked off.

    blackdb: Just think how well they’d do if Florida kicked off ALL its arrestees.
