According to Gainesville Sun, OL Matt Patchan will transfer to either Ohio State (with Urban Meyer) or Boston College (with Steve Addazio).
Can anyone fill us in about this guy?
Ironic name for a guy who is going to transfer somewhere. Equilly ironic is the the persons name on twitter.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
He was the #5 OT in 2008 on Rivals (5-star, but behind Adams #1 and Brewster #4).
Here is his UF career info: http://www.gatorzone.com/football/bios.php?year=2012&player_id=176
I would take him as a rt? Can he transfer without sitting out a year. I hope so because thats the only way I'm taking him.
Coyoungin on twitter. Circular square movement.
Did he graduate and is transferring to a grad school with a major not offered at UF?
Yes, on the UF board they said he graduated and is rehabbing a torn pec, will seek to transfer to a school that allows 5th year, one season graduate program. As far as that goes for tOSU someone else can fill in whether or not that works with us. Would be huge for one season of depth at Tackle.
I don't like it. You work so hard to build the family atmosphere, I don't like the idea of bringing in an "outsider" to play for 1 year and take someone else's spot. It reminds me of Miracle when they bring in the extra guy after initial tryouts. I would understand it, and the coaches have a better grasp of how something would affect the team, but it doesn't sit right with me.
Dumb logic...the kid is transferring! Wants to play and might be able to help us!
Ya, it really hurt the Badgers when Wilson came in for one year.
Pretty sure this kid got shot a few years back... Never heard full story on it.
He is an interesting story. Shot in the shoulder as a freshman from what it looks like he was an innocent bystander. Named on the Shapiro Mess at Miami but nothing became of it and ended up going to Florida even though his dad was a Miami guy.
At Florida has missed most of his career with injuries, but urban moved him to dline as a freshman on the national championship team. He played both ways in high school. Seems like a freak athlete who needs a change in scenery and a lucky year without injuries.
