Redshirt sophomore cornerback Adrian Bushell, who was expected to start for the Florida Gators this season in place of Joe Haden, has decided to transfer, according to Mark Wheeler of (subscription required). OGGOA is independently confirming this report, according to a source close to the team.

Bushell sat out most of spring practice after being suspended from team activities for two weeks by head coach Urban Meyer due to academic problems and other off-the-field issues. He returned for back-to-back practices before being forced out again before the 2010 Orange & Blue Debut in late April.

Fellow redshirt sophomore Jeremy Brown and senior Moses Jenkins competed for what would have been Bushell’s job during spring practice with Brown looking to have won the job going into summer workouts.

UPDATE: The University of Florida has now confirmed that Bushell will indeed transfer.

“He is looking to transfer, and we will assist him in that process,” UF associate athletic director Steve McClain said in a statement.

OGGOA: Florida LB Brendan Beal also likely to transfer

    This does not surprise me at all. With the new guys coming in soon, this was gonna be a crowded house for Bushell.

    I wish these dudes would just play and let the cards fall where they may, i know he is pissed and wants to play, but when people transfer, rarely if ever does it work out like they think!

    Sometimes when DB/LB leaders like Spikes, Haden, and Wright leave, some of the younger discontented players lose their connection to the team.

    Must have been told he was backing up Janoris, and probably read the writing on the wall that Shaw and Watkins are on the fast track. I think the teams rush to get Elam on the field at nickel may have hurt as well.

    and if Brown is 100% healthy he could be the biggest surprise of next year
