McElwain, White, Foley make few waves as Florida Gators reps at 2015 SEC spring meetings

A tumultuous offseason for Florida Gators athletic director Jeremy Foley, one in which he had to hire new head coaches in his two top revenue-producing sports of football and basketball, did not carry over to the Southeastern Conference spring meetings this week where Foley and his new coaches were some of the least news-making people in attendance at the annual event.

Though the meetings will go on for two more days with new Florida president Kent Fuchs set to be in attendance, OnlyGators.com has decided to wrap up the first two days of the proceedings and provide a detailed look at five of the biggest topics actually discussed by the Gators’ representatives in Destin, Florida.

Florida adds JUCO OL Branton Autry for 2016

Autry (6-foot-5, 320 pounds) plays offensive tackle for Coffeyville Community College and was named first-team all-conference last season. He chose Florida over offers from Arkansas, Arizona State, Baylor, Missouri, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Kansas State, Louisville and South Carolina, among others.

Reports: Early enrollee TE Daniel Imatorbhebhe to transfer from Florida Gators

Just over five months after enrolling in school, Florida Gators freshman tight end Daniel Imatorbhebhe has decided to leave the team and pursue a transfer to another institution, according to multiple reports.

Scout.com first reported Tuesday that Imatorbhebhe was leaving the program, a move that sources told AlligatorArmy.com shortly thereafter is “basically official.”

Speaking at the SEC spring meetings on Tuesday, McElwain discussed the transfers of quarterback Josh Grady (in) and Skyler Mornhinweg (out) but told gathered reporters that no other Gators were leaving the team at the moment despite others having met with him to discuss the possibility.

Silver Lining for May 20: Updates on Florida Gators in the NFL; farewell to David Letterman

Get them to sign on the line which is dotted

Three weeks have passed since the 2015 NFL Draft and Florida Gators have spent the time signing rich contracts to play professional football.

The most notable deal struck to this point was that between No. 3 overall pick Dante Fowler Jr. and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Despite the defensive end suffering a season-ending torn ACL in his very first NFL practice and signing an injury waiver, the Jaguars did not force offset language into his contract and still inked him to a four-year, $23.5 million fully-guaranteed deal with a $15.3 million signing bonus. Fowler will bring home $4.27 million this season without stepping foot on the field.

Florida Gators adding two transfer quarterbacks: Josh Grady, Luke Del Rio

Already enrolled at the University of Florida for the Summer A semester, Vanderbilt graduate transfer quarterback/wide receiver Josh Grady will join the Florida Gators for the 2015 season, the school announced on Friday.

Grady (6-foot, 202 pounds) will be immediately eligible to join the Gators after playing eight games at wideout but not recording a single catch for the Commodores in 2014. He played some quarterback in 2013 but has yet to produce at either position during his collegiate career.

As a standout signal caller at Armwood High School, the Tampa native scored 38 touchdowns (14 rushing) and only threw five interceptions during his senior state title-winning season.

Grady will be just the third scholarship-holding quarterback on Florida’s roster. He will fight with redshirt junior walk-on Jacob Guy for No. 3 responsibilities behind redshirt freshman Will Grier and sophomore Treon Harris, who are battling for the starting gig.

The Gators are also reportedly planning to add sophomore undergraduate transfer QB Luke Del Rio, who will not be eligible to play at Florida until 2016. Del Rio began his career as a walk-on at Alabama in 2013 before moving to Oregon State last season.

Thompson (6-foot-2, 230 pounds) was offered by the Gators in late April and chose Florida over Arizona State, Iowa and Louisville. He was previously being recruited by head coach Jim McElwain and running backs coach Tim Skipper when the duo was at Colorado State.

Skyler Mornhinweg transfers out, Luke Del Rio ‘expected’ to join Florida Gators QB stable

During a spring Southeastern Conference teleconference held Wednesday, Florida Gators head coach Jim McElwain casually announced that redshirt junior quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg has decided to transfer from the program.

Mornhinweg will join the Columbia football team after only seeing action as a spot starter for Florida in 2013. He ends his UF career having completing 69.8 percent of his passes for 344 yards with three touchdowns and one interception over the final three games of that season.

“We wish him the best. We’d love to have him stay here, but obviously as it sits, we’re right now with two scholarship quarterbacks,” McElwain said.
