Former Armwood High star Alvin Bailey is transferring after three nondescript seasons at Florida.

After three nondescript seasons at the University of Florida, former Armwood High multi-purpose threat Alvin Bailey is transferring, according to multiple reports.

An Under Armour All-American as a Hawks senior, Bailey will have two seasons remaining if he transfers to a I-AA or Division II program. Youngstown State, Eastern Kentucky, Samford and Valdosta State have contacted him, Hawks coaches said Sunday evening.

A versatile cog in the Hawks' run to a 2011 state championship (later forfeited for FHSAA violations), Bailey managed only three receptions as a Gator -- all in 2015. He played sparingly in 2014 and was redshirted in '13.

Moreover, Coach Jim McElwain signed five receivers -- three of them four-star prospects -- in February.

Though barely conspicuous at UF, Bailey arguably was the offensive MVP of Armwood's '11 squad. Thrust into regular quarterback duty when starter Darryl Richardson sustained a bursa sac injury in the season opener, Bailey amassed 2,251 total yards and 21 touchdowns. More than 1,000 were compiled in five playoff games.
