A.C. Leonard Transferring From Florida Football, Says Will Muschamp

In February, Florida Gators tight end A.C. Leonard was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. In the wake of the news, the school suspended the player from team activities. The suspension was short-lived and Leonard was reinstated, but he won't play again for the Gators.

Coach Will Muschamp announced at SEC Media Days that Leonard will transfer. He named Clay Burton first among the five remaining tight ends on the depth chart.

The Gators' offense didn't make much ado about tight ends in 2011, with only Jordan Reed accruing significant catches. However, new offensive coordinator Brent Pease may have been able to feature Leonard if things had worked out here. Leonard caught eight balls for 99 yards, ranking him second at the position, even though he suffered a serious injury in the summer. He saw time in five games. Next in line would've been Gerald Christian, but he has already transferred out of the program.
