Florida LB Graham Stewart to transfer

Florida coach Will Muschamp announced today that sophomore LB Graham Stewart, has decided to transfer. Stewart, who is from Connecticut, cited personal reasons for his decision.

"I have some personal family issues that have caused me to evaluate how far I am away from home,'' Stewart said. "I appreciate my time in Gainesville and have nothing but good things to say about Coach Muschamp and the staff at Florida, but some things are more important.  I really need to be closer to home."

Stewart's most memorable game as a Gator was in the Gator Bowl this past January when he returned a blocked punt for a touchdown. He  played in 12 games as a freshman this past season, mostly on special teams.

"Graham has told me he wanted to leave to get closer to home due to some personal issues,'' Muschamp said. "Family always comes first with me and he needs to be closer to his family. I’m thankful for his contributions to our team and wish him nothing but the best of luck. He will always have my support and backing if he needs any help in the future."
