Defensive lineman Adam Shuler, a graduate transfer from West Virginia, is not enrolled in classes at Florida yet and his status is uncertain for the upcoming season.

Shuler, who started 10 games at defensive end for West Virginia as a redshirt junior last season, announced on Twitter on June 11 that he is transferring to UF.

But he is not on the updated preseason roster that was released by the school earlier this week that includes the true freshmen and preferred walk-ons who enrolled in the Summer B semester that started Monday.

According to the school, those new players listed on the updated roster are enrolled and have filled out all their necessary paperwork.

If Shuler eventually does enroll, he would be immediately eligible and have two years of eligibility.

The 6-foot-4, 270-pound Shuler is from Longwood and was a three-star prospect coming out of Lyman High School in 2015.

In two seasons with the Mountaineers, he recorded 71 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and four sacks.



      • Aw, he don’t mean it Leland, he just got up on the wrong side of the bed today is all. I’ll be glad to publicly disavow you tho if you think you’re in trouble–least I could do for another old Krystal-lover.

      • Gator-6—TampaGator scolded you because you do not respond directly to the content of the articles, never mind that there is most often precious little content to be found in them. Albeit, Robbie occasionally manages to be a little forthcoming. The content there is, when there is some, could scarcely entertain a fifteen-year-old. As for me, the postings following the articles are usually more interesting than the articles, and most often the only part I read.

        Anyway, now that you know why TampaGator dislikes you, maybe you’ll change your ways to be like him.

        • leland the comment section is priceless, what a load of characters we have here. There are even some sworn enemies who in real life have never even met, where else can you get drama like this?

          • Don’t know nothin’ about any porpoise, but I sure do need all the help I can get with holding the old pants up. Once the last Krystal closed out here, I’ve probably lost a hundred pounds or more!

        • Well, perhaps I should have taken a few more keystrokes and explained myself, Leland…..just think of all the inhuman angst that could have been avoided had I done that. Truth is though, it was 10AM out here when I posted, and my wife (that would be Gator-3) was yelling at me as to why I wasn’t taking her up to Waco like I promised…..oh, let’s be honest….I caved in, folded, buckled under the pressure….and off to Waco we went.
          (insert new paragraph heading here to make it appear more sinister than it is)

          And the rest is, of course history. Of course I feel terrible now, and yes, I would do anything to be more like Tampa, but I’m sure I’d never measure up anyway. (insert new paragraph heading here to make it sound like I have something actually important to say)

          Sad, very sad.

          • Geez Tampa, and I was just about to invite you out for some of the best Texas BBQ, Waco style, that ever tickled your tonsils. Or, if you preferred, some great Tex-Mex at Ninfa’s….just down the street from the Dr Pepper museum….where the carnitas leave you ready for heaven. We could even drop by Baylor and tour the new Art Briles Memorial Stadium. Well, your loss….some other time I suppose, when you’re in a better mood perhaps.

          • Yes, CO Jones, please explain, if I am planning on visiting Georgia soon, why I should go to Macon (Waco) instead of Atlanta (Dallas) , Savannah (San Antonio), or Athens (Austin). Maybe if you could read between the lines instead of on top of them, you would think and see things differently than you do. But I guess that would be a condescending, elitist, and arrogant comment to make to one who completely missed the point of my post.

          • Gator6. Sorry, Waco just does not make my places to must go list. And a visit to Baylor. That would be a serious NO THANK YOU.

    • I’ve been reading y’all’ses drama for weeks and sometimes want to tell y’all to cut it out, other times I want to join a side (I’ll probably flip a coin), and always just end up sitting back and following along for as long as I can be entertained. Now I’m starting to think I might develop multiple personas and just join both sides. Decisions, decisions.

      Seriously though, you guys come up with some interesting putdowns.

  1. Gator6. And you and your new friends on here wonder why I dislike you so much. You are like a bothersome little fly that repeatedly lands on one’s nose while one is trying to take nap outdoors. You just can’t leave it alone and just post reasonably and intelligently about the content of the article.

  2. Robbie, has he actually graduated from West Virginia? Any way to check? If he has graduated, there would be no reason for him to not be enrolled, other than either he or Florida changed direction concerning him becoming a Gator.

  3. Heaven forbid we dig a little bit and maybe reach out to the recruit or his family or his former high school coach.

    I’m also going to put all of my sentences on a separate line so it looks like I wrote a bunch of paragraphs.

    However, if you look at my post, I only wrote 3 sentences and not 3 paragraphs but I am fooling you with my writing style.

  4. Robbie. Did a little quick research for you. Checked his twitter account and he does have a video of himself walking across and receiving his degree from WVU. Man, I agree that this article is sorely lacking in detail and content. But does accomplish enough sensation to get plenty of clicks. Bad journalism, sir. Just my opinion.

  5. But I also understand the RUSH to be first in the fast-moving world of the internet. So, saying it is bad journalism is based on my ancient way of thinking about what good journalism is, I guess. And I admit that I am clueless as to what a good journalist in today’s world.

  6. “Shuler, who just finished his redshirt sophomore season, is a former 3-star prospect out of Lyman High School in Longwood, Florida, and was the No. 115 ranked player from the state in the 2015 recruiting class, according to 247sports, recorded 70 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and four sacks in 24 career games for the Mountaineers. He had a career-high seven tackles in West Virginia’s 2017 season opener against Virginia Tech.

    Shuler, who is listed as 6-4 and 268 pounds on his West Virginia bio, has two years of eligibility remaining and will be joining a stacked UF defensive line that includes five capable defensive ends in senior CeCe Jefferson, redshirt junior Jabari Zuniga, junior Antonneous Clayton, sophomore Elijah Conliffe and redshirt freshman Zach Carter.”

  7. Hey Tampa you’re starting to show your colors. Here we are bantering about sports and you out of the blue come out with a put down on our President. Who else was always attacking Gator fans and bad mouthing Trump on these boards?
    Who else used to post the same thing
    over and over ad nauseam?
    Who else used to post long arse dissertations instead of a clear cocise post?

  8. Was not bad mouthing Trump. Stated a fact. That is what Trump does as a political strategy that works very well him with a certain element of the US population. And I am neither pro nor anti Trump. Not very political, in fact. It was just an analogy. But read into it whatever you desire.

    • Not a fact, your opinion. However I agree what he does works very well with the informed, in the know, and educated element of the US population as opposed to those who have been misled, lied to and confused by the Obamas and Clintons. But enough politics. Each time you post I see more and more similarities between you and Mike Winter. Very sad.

      • CO Jones. Well, that certainly is your opinion, be it informed, in the know, or educated or not. But, sir, I spent 35 years in brand advertising and marketing (after receiving a degree in Journalism/Public Relations from an elite UF School of Journalism and a masters in Consumer Marketing from a very elite university just outside of Chicago. I think I know a little about market and consumer strategy, and can recognize such be it in a business to business environment, a business to consumer environment, or even in a political environment. The concepts in those strategies do not differ greatly, and Trump has been a very successful businessman, and accomplished something in the political arena that no one believed he could. And, yes, what I said he is doing is exactly what he is doing. He is smart just like that.

        • And CO, no, I did not attend North Florida like Mike Winter did. And I do not live with my mother like Mike Winter does. But I am not able to get out as much as I used to and do the things I used to love so much in the outdoors. And probably do spend way too much time on the internet these days, very much like Mike Winter does (although he has disappeared from here).

          • Hey, not fair! I thought I was Mike Winters! Well, like TJ says, hang around here long enough and you’ll catch multiple personality disorder before you know it. And all along I thought that was from dirty toilet seats…..

            Well, what can you expect from Google University School of Medicine and Discount Pogey Bait Emporium?

    • Boy, am I ever glad to hear that!

      I’ve been challenged all my life, but that has more to do with my ancestry. Long line of horse thieves and
      Tennessee trash, moved to Avon Park in the early 1900s but it didn’t help much except for an unusual attachment to Gator football. Never been attacked by a gator though; I did step in a cow pie once if that counts.

    • Not sure what road I’m on anymore, it’s a little dizzy out here right now. But here’s my hand too–no buzzer hidden in my palm this time–and finally, Go Gators.

      I can’t eat all that good stuff in Waco anymore, anyway. The offer still stands though for a Cuban Sandwich at the Columbia the next time I’m in Tampa. As long as you promise not to tell my 12 year old doctor, that is.

  9. Gator-6. “An affliction often “ASSOCIATED” with intelligence, “SADLY.” But the above post was obviously a failed attempt to take a light-hearted jab at myself for being “obsessive and compulsive” on the internet. I am not OCD, but I am obviously bored primarily due to way too much Florida rain, heat, humidity, and not being to get out as much as I would like.

    • I got it….it was funny, actually. I’m not either, not really, otherwise my wife (again, that would be Gator-3) wouldn’t complain so much all the time about how messy my Gator man cave/garage/underground pogey bait store slash dirt pile is.

      If you want a taste of way too hot and humid, and boring it is, sans rain, try Central Texas. I actually got off my duff yesterday and did some tractor work…..vowing to never do that again as long as I live or as long as it’s summer in Texas, whichever comes first, so help me God no matter how bored I am.

      • Enjoy your day, Gator6. SEC Media days are just around the corner. After that, we can say the same thing about fall practice. Then, toe meets leather. And mostly off the internet enjoying the fall weather and college games in The Swamp; and hopefully no more hurricane postponements. Go Gators.

    • Definitively you failed at humor, could be you already have a reputation as a sourpuss.
      Try being nicer to other posters on these boards, try not correcting every minor mistake and maybe you can overcome your reputation.
      Just trying to help.

      • CO Jones. I am thinking that trying to help is not in your DNA. But needling, sticking your nose in where it does not belong, and stirring the pot clearly is; which is more than just your reputation, sir. And I will let this be it with you. Not doing this again without another.
