Gator RB Mike Blakely to transfer

Florida RB Mike Blakely has decided to transfer, UF coach Will Muschamp announced today.

Blakely is a former Bradenton Manatee standout.

"Mike has come to the conclusion that the University of Florida is not where he wants to play football,” Muschamp said. “We wish him
the best of luck.”

A 5-9, 198-pound freshman, Blakely missed all of spring drills while undergoing rehab for a shoulder injury.

“Everyone at Florida has been very supportive of me in my time here and I’m thankful for the experience that I had, but I’ve made a
decision to continue my college football career somewhere else,” Blakely said in a statment released by the university.
