Florida LB Dee Finley to transfer from program

Florida coach Will Muschamp says linebacker Dee Finley is

transferring.

Muschamp says Finley ”would like to pursue other

opportunities.”

Finley, a redshirt sophomore from Auburn, Ala., was charged with

resisting arrest without violence after a traffic stop on campus

last month. He was suspended one week. He played in five games this

season, mostly on special teams. He has 12 career tackles.

One of the top recruits in the country in 2008, Finley attended

prep school before enrolling at Florida. He switched from safety to

linebacker, but never panned out.

Finley says he enjoyed his time at Florida, but that ”it’s best

for me to move on and get a fresh start somewhere else.” He will

remain through the end of the semester.
