Another Florida football player has put his name in the NCAA transfer database.
The latest Gator to make the decision to transfer is redshirt senior linebacker Rayshad Jackson, who is going to end his college career at another school as a graduate transfer.
Jackson, who is from Miami Norland, started three games last season and played in all 13. He’s been one of the Gators’ most productive special teams players over the past three seasons, playing in a combined 33 games.
Jackson finished the spring third on the depth chart at inside linebacker.
Another UF linebacker who has been in the transfer portal since before the start of spring practice finally has landed at another school. Senior outside linebacker Kylan Johnson has transferred to Pittsburgh, the school announced Wednesday.
In his three seasons at UF, Johnson started nine games and played in 33. He recorded 83 career tackles, 5.5 tackles for losses and one sack.
“Kylan is a really smart player with a great nose for the football,” Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi said. “He can play either outside linebacker position and is a great fit for our scheme. Kylan’s experience and athleticism will be immediate assets for our linebacker group.”
Johnson has one year of eligibility remaining.
With Johnson going to Pitt, Jackson and redshirt freshman defensive end/tackle Malik Langham are the only former Gators in the transfer portal who have yet to make a decision on where they will continue their career.
The other six UF players in the portal — Johnson (Pitt), wide receiver Daquon Green (Murray State), defensive end Antonneous Clayton (Georgia Tech), center T.J. McCoy (Louisville), cornerback Chris Steele (Oregon) and quarterback Jalon Jones (Jackson State) — have found new schools.
