Although it is not a done deal, it appears defensive tackle John Brown will leave Florida without playing a down.

Brown, who was a major recruit in 2007, sat out that season after starting practice late while waiting to be cleared academically. He suffered a broken wrist prior to this season and did not play.

He has apparently decided to get a fresh start somewhere else.

"It's not finalized yet," Urban Meyer said Thursday. "But it looks that way."

Meyer said he was not sure what schools Brown planned to consider for his transfer.

Brown was one of seven players from Lakeland High to sign with Florida in 2007.
