Tyler Murphy interest in transferring to either Louisville or Boston College, but UF would block both transfers.— Robbie Andreu (@RobbieAndreu) December 16, 2013
Florida doesn't have any out-of-conference game scheduled against Louisville or Boston College, so there's no clear competitive reason to limit Murphy's transfer options, if Florida's doing so.
Murphy is the latest in a number of personnel losses for the Gators this offseason. Last week, Florida announced that four players were seeking opportunities elsewhere, though none of the four were major contributors this year. Reserve quarterback Max Staver is also on his way out, and Skyler Mornhinweg may opt to leave as well.
Fortunately for the Gators, Jeff Driskel will be back in 2014 after suffering a season-ending injury in September, but Murphy's departure adds some uncertainty to the reserve role. Given the turnover at the position, it's possible that true freshman Will Grier ultimately ends up winning the No. 2 job.
Potential landing spots for Murphy are unknown at this point. The Connecticut native was also recruited by Syracuse and UConn out of high school.
