The last member of the 2013 recruiting class came as a surprise to most people. Trevon Young was a name that most Gator fans hadn’t heard of when he committed a day after National Signing Day on February 7 last year.
Young wasn’t a highly recruited football player and basketball was his first love. He has decided to go back to that first love and informed Gator Country that he will transfer to Eckerd College where he will play basketball.
Young was recruited as an offensive lineman/tight end but was quickly moved to offensive line exclusively. Young did not see any action this season for the Gators and in the end decided that playing football wasn’t in his heart anymore saying, “I didn’t have the love for [football] that I thought I would.”
The departure of Young leaves Florida with just 11 scholarship offensive linemen heading into the offseason.
