    Jake McGee ‏@JakeOvaTheWorld 9m
    I will be playing my 5th year at The University of Florida. GO Gators!

    Virginia senior tight end Jake McGee received his release from the school Friday and is expected to consider a possible transfer to Florida, The Sun has learned.

    He’s 6-foot-6, 250 pounds and is considered an excellent receiver who can stretch the field with his 4.6-second speed in the 40-yard dash. He’s already been projected as a third-round NFL draft pick in 2015 by ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr.

    McGee has given no indication where he will transfer, but playing in the ACC, he’s familiar with Roper’s offense and how he could possibly fit in at Florida.


    Robbie Andreu ‏@RobbieAndreu 17m
    Gators are in the mix for Virginia TE Jake McGee, who is graduating and will be eligible this season. Source says he's UF bound.


    Robbie Andreu ‏@RobbieAndreu 16m
    McGee is a big, athletic pass-catching TE and would fill the final piece of the puzzle in Roper's offense.

    Robbie Andreu ‏@RobbieAndreu 9m
    An announcement could be coming soon that McGee is transferring to Florida, where he'll likely start this season

    Westbrook to SSDE? We could use the depth.

    He has terrific hands. He probably wants to come to UF to prove that he can block, making himself a better draft target.

    @evandagator: Jake McGee going to Florida? That would be HUGE. Leading receiver for Virginia as a tight end last year.

    Its amazing how some forget about studs like him just because he didn't EE. He was a consensus top 50 player and pretty much took it to cameron robinson (#1 OL) at the UA game. I'm with you on GWIII, great hands to disengage blocks and has a high motor. Dude will be special.

    If he comes it would be huge for us. I would feel a lot better about our team next year.

    I'm sure Jeff is thinking the same exact thing. Nothing like a 6'6 250 lb security blanket :)

    Exactly right. - 3rd down and red zone he could be a real plus for us. Excellent hands and size, and good body control.

    But he ain't no 4.6 guy like the link claimed. Probably 4.8 with a good breeze at his back.

    He is a senior and a projected 3rd round pick? Why transfer, go pro.

    Roper loves a TE. Last year his TE was Dukes 2nd leading receiver with 46 rec/600 yds 4tds.

    Dude I felt abandoned on the other thread today. I was completely out numbered and pinned down by pitchforks. It's seems they've gotten a head start this year and I was not with my platoon when ambushed. Spent the majority of the day fighting off my back. :( sad part is I just tried to lend support to the op and the thread was completely high jacked and morphed into "our new coach" thread.
