Year after year players make up their mind to transfer away from programs and this year is no different as the Gators lost a player on Wednesday.
Redshirt freshman fullback Rhaheim Ledbetter informed GatorCountry on Wednesday afternoon that he had decided to transfer away from Florida.
“I’ve got to do what’s best for me and my family,” Ledbetter said. “I have a few places in mind that I want to go but wherever I go I want to play safety.”
Ledbetter came to Florida as a four star safety prospect according to ESPN.com but moved to the fullback position in 2013 but didn’t see any action at the position during the season.
The Shelby, North Carolina native was high school teammates of sophomore defensive end Jonathan Bullard at Crest High School.
Ledbetter is also cousins with former Gators great linebacker Brandon Spikes who now plays for the New England Patriots.
