Florida football: Gators entering NCAA transfer portal grows to four

Florida linebacker Khris Bogle had a solid game Saturday against Florida State at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

Florida junior Khris Bogle entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal Wednesday, he announced on social media.

Fellow outside linebacker Lloyd Summerall followed suit Thursday, becoming the fourth Gator to hit the portal this week. 

Bogle appeared in 10 games this year. He recorded 23 total tackles, 3.5 tackles-for-loss and 1.5 sacks on the year, primarily in a rotational role. He also added three quarterback hits.

His production and usage dipped from his sophomore season, when he made 27 tackles, 4.5 tackles-for-loss and 4.0 sacks, which was tied for second on the team. Bogle has been a backup at the BUCK position to starter Brenton Cox Jr., who nearly doubled his sack total from last year (4.0) with 7.5 sacks this fall. 

Since joining Florida, Bogle has played in 35 games and has accounted for 69 total tackles, 12 tackles for loss and eight sacks. Summerall, a redshirt sophomore, saw his most action in 2021, playing in all 12 games and making four tackles and 0.5 sack.

Summerall appeared in just two games last season and three in 2019, finishing his UF career with 16 tackles, 2.0 tackles-for-loss and 1.5 in in 17 games played. 

The departure of Bogle and Summerall leaves the Gators with two returning outside linebackers in Antwuan Powell, Lloyd Summerall III and Cox, who is expected to come back for his senior season.

On Monday, redshirt junior defensive end Dante Zanders, formerly Dante Lang, and redshirt freshman offensive lineman Gerald Mincey have both entered their names into the transfer portal. 

Zanders recorded six tackles and 0.5 sacks in 11 games played this season, while Mincey appeared in nine games and didn't allow a sack against Vanderbilt. 

Those players entered the portal days after UF hired new coach Billy Napier, who has not yet met with his new team.
