COLUMBUS, Ohio — According to multiple reports this week, including one from The Gainesville Sun, former 5-star prospect Matt Patchan is considering a transfer to Ohio State.
Patchan, a top-20 player in the class of 2008, has played in 27 games during an injury-plagued career at the University of Florida where he originally signed on to play for current OSU head coach Urban Meyer.
According to the reports, Patchan is primarily considering a transfer to Ohio State, where he could reunite with Meyer in Columbus, or Boston College, where the Eagles recently hired Meyer’s former offensive coordinator, Steve Addazio, to run the program.
A native of the Tampa area, Patchan played in 11 games – including one start against Kentucky – on the defensive line for the Gators during Meyer’s second BCS national championship run back in 2008. He was only a freshman on that team, but he cracked the rotation up front for then-defensive coordinator Charlie Strong.
The 6-6, 300-pound Patchan was sidelined for the final three games of the season because of a leg injury. He switched over to offensive line the following season, where he played under Addazio before a torn ACL caused him to miss the final 10 games of the season.
He would receive a medical redshirt for that season, but the rest of his career in Gainesville was also marred by injuries. He missed the entire 2010 season but returned in 2011 as Florida’s starting right tackle.
With all due respect to this young man, Mike DeAndrea comes to mind..Certainly if he can help the talent is always needed. But in the next couple of years with limited openings are we taking a chance we need not take?...JMO

Saw that Muschamp confirmed he is transferring, along with their safety Saunders. He will be eligible to start immediately because ha already has his degree.
Is this the equivalent loophole Wisconsin uses to get their QBs ?
