Former Nature Coast Tech star Ja'Juan Story will transfer from Florida Gators

Ja'Juan Story, the former Brooksville Nature Coast standout WR is transferring from the Florida Gators football program, coach Will Muschamp announced today.

"Ja'Juan came me to Thursday afternoon and indicated that he wanted to transfer," Muschamp said. "He just felt like this wasn't a good fit for him and he needed a fresh start. Ja'Juan is a good student and was a good teammate, and we wish him the best of luck."

Story did not see action last season. He redshirted and played only with the scout team. At 6-foot-3, 206 pounds, Story was a four-star rated WR, and considered the No. 6 WR by ESPN.com. He played both quarterback and WR in high school - passing for 427 yards and three touchdowns, and catching seven passes for 123 yards in his senior season.

"I met with Coach Muschamp Thursday afternoon and told him I wanted to transfer," Story said in s statement released by UF. "I had a great experience here and met a bunch of great people. It is a great football program with great players and coaches. It just wasn't the right fit for me."

Story chose UF over Georgia, Ohio State, Oregon and USF.
