Florida redshirt junior defensive end Antonneous Clayton Sr., the highest-rated prospect in the Gators’ 2016 recruiting class, has left the team. He announced on Twitter on Monday that he has decided to transfer to another school.
Clayton, a five-star prospect according to Rivals, never lived up to the expectations put on him in his three-plus years in Gainesville. In his first two years, he played in nine games as a reserve, totaling only 11 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.
He played in three games this past season, then made the decision to redshirt, hoping he would be ready to compete for a starting job at the rush end position this spring.
