Florida redshirt freshman defensive end Malik Langham is expected to transfer to another school after putting his name in the NCAA transfer database, according to reports citing unnamed sources Monday.
A former four-star recruit from Huntsville, Ala., Langham redshirted last season after seeing limited playing time in two games (Colorado State and Idaho).
Recruited as a defensive end, Langham grew into a tackle over the past year and made the full-time switch to the position at the start of spring practice.
Langham, who was likely third on the depth chart, played in last Saturday’s spring game and was credited with breaking up a pass.
With the expected departure of Langham, the Gators will be down to six defensive tackles for the start of preseason camp, including incoming freshman Jaelin Humphries. Defensive end Zachary Carter got reps at tackle this spring and will likely see playing time at both positions in the fall. End Jabari Zuniga also played some tackle last season in obvious passing situations.
He is the third UF player to recently transfer, joining center T.J. McCoy (Louisville) and defensive end Antonneous Clayton (Georgia Tech).
