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.
