Former Michigan linebacker Devin Gil announced Tuesday via Twitter that he’s joining USF as a graduate transfer, providing a veteran presence to the heart of the Bulls defense.
A Pembroke Pines native, Gil appeared in 40 games for the Wolverines with 14 starts. He’ll be immediately eligible at USF, where he’ll be reunited with former Michigan teammate Eddie McDoom.
A special teams fixture throughout his Michigan career, Gil enjoyed his best season in 2018, when he played linebacker in all 13 games, totaling 33 tackles and 1.5 sacks. He had five solo tackles and a sack against Florida in the Peach Bowl before exiting with an injury.
Last season, he appeared in only four games at linebacker, but remained a special teams standout, finishing with nine tackles and a half-tackle for loss.
A consensus three-star prospect at Flanagan High, Gil helped lead the Falcons to the Class 8A state title in 2015.
