UVa. TE McGee transfers to Florida

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Former Virginia tight end Jake McGee has landed at Florida.

McGee, who earned his undergraduate degree last month and decided to transfer for graduate school, attended classes Monday in Gainesville and will be eligible to play for the Gators this fall.

McGee, 6-foot-6, 250-pounds, led the Cavaliers with 43 receptions for 395 yards last season. He sat out Virginia's spring game with what were called minor injuries, but had drawn raves for his work during spring practice.

McGee will provide new offensive coordinator Kurt Roper with a versatile threat in the passing game and a seasoned veteran in the locker room.

While at Duke, Roper recruited McGee out of the Collegiate School in Richmond, Virginia. McGee opted to sign with the Cavaliers but remained familiar with Roper's up-tempo offense.
