Former Nature Coast standout WR Ja’Juan Story has been granted his release from Florida, and USF is among the programs he’s considering transferring to, his uncle, Rudy Story, told the Times on Monday.
The Gators’ only restrictions for Story’s transfer: He cannot go to FSU, Miami or any SEC school.
Rudy Story said his nephew’s recruiting process is wide open, and that they’ve heard from schools in the Big Ten, Big 12 and ACC. USF is also in the mix, and Ja’Juan Story expects to talk with Bulls coaches Monday evening.
“We’re definitely looking at USF,” said Rudy Story, the outside linebackers coach at Nature Coast.
USF was one of Story’s first offers. The 6-foot-3, four-star recruit signed with the Gators in 2011 but was initially recruited by offensive coordinator Charlie Weis and head coach Urban Meyer – neither of whom are still at UF.
Story chose UF over Ohio State, Georgia, Oregon and others.
