Florida Gators junior tight end/linebacker Camrin Knight is reportedly transferring for the upcoming season.

Thomas Goldkamp of 247Sports reports that Knight will be transferring to Georgia State University in Atlanta; a report which was subsequently confirmed by SEC Country’s Zach Abolverdi. Knight will have to sit out a year before being eligible to play for the Panthers, one of the newest FBS teams in existence.

Knight, a former three-star player, was part of the Gators’ 2015 recruiting class — the first with Jim McElwain at the helm. He spent most of his time at Florida as a reserve tight end for the Gators, and struggled to crack the regular rotation.

Knight appeared in eight games for Florida as a freshman in 2015, seeing limited time at tight end and on special teams. He played in four games in 2016. He did not record any stats in either year, and was primarily used as a blocking tight end when in on offensive plays.

During spring, it was announced that Knight would move from tight end to linebacker. After spring, Knight had landed on Florida’s injury report, undergoing surgery on his left knee in May.

Put simply, Knight was a little-used reserve player for the Gators who is looking for a better opportunity. We wish him all the best in his post-Florida career.
