Florida sophomore wide receiver Michael McIntosh has decided to transfer to Georgia Southern, where he will be eligible to play in the fall.
McIntosh was a member of the scout team as a redshirt freshman last season and did not see any game action. He struggled with the offense this past spring and figured to enter two-a-days at, or near, the bottom of the depth chart.
McIntosh orally committed to Clemson after his senior season at Jacksonville First Coast, but changed his mind and signed with Ron Zook and the Gators on national signing day.
In other UF news, according to two recruiting services, the Gators have picked up an oral commitment from junior college quarterback Bryan Waggener, who threw for almost 2,000 yards last season at Citrus College in Glendora, Calif. He is expected to visit UF this summer.
The 6-foot-4, 227-pound Waggener played only one year of high school football at Chino Hills in Ayala, Calif., throwing for 1,300 yards in 2004. He did not receive any scholarship offers coming out of high school and enrolled at Citrus College.
He has one more season to play at Citrus and hopes to enroll at UF next January.
Waggener also has been recruited by Auburn, Ole Miss, Oregon State, Utah and Washington, but has not yet received a scholarship offer from any of those schools, yet.
