After seeing little action over two seasons and realizing there was a lack of opportunity to see more in 2017, Florida Gators junior tight end Camrin Knight has decided to leave the program, according to 247Sports’ Thomas Goldkamp. Knight, who reteweeted the story and confirmed his departure in a tweet to a teammate, will reportedly continue his career with the Georgia State Panthers.

The 6-foot-3, 246-pound tight end barely saw the field while with Florida, playing as a reserve in 12 games over two seasons (four in 2016) and never making a catch on offense. He moved to linebacker this spring as an attempt to see playing time at a position that lacked necessary depth but was unable to catch on.

A three-star prospect, Knight was part of head coach Jim McElwain‘s transition class in 2015. He is the third player from the 20-member class to leave the program, joining TE Daniel Imatorbhebhe and offensive lineman Brandon Sandifer.
