USF Trying To Land A Pair Of Ex-Gators

Two transferring Florida footballers may simply move from Gainesville to Tampa.  Wide receiver Chris Dunkley and running back Mike Blakely are both reportedly being pursued by nearby South Florida.

The St. Petersburg Times reports that USF is waiting for Dunkley’s transcript from UF to begin the enrollment process.  Meanwhile, Blakely — who was an early enrollee with the Gators in January — is also being chased by Bulls’ coach Skip Holtz.

Will Muschamp nixed Blakely from transferring to Florida State, Miami or an SEC school, but he has reportedly given clearance to a USF-Blakely marriage.

UF Plans To Give WR Dunkley A Full Release… For Now

When he signed with Florida last spring, Chris Dunkley was expected to be the next great Gator wideout. listed him as a five-star recruit, the #8 receiver in the nation.

But after redshirting last year, Dunkley now wants to transfer from Gainesville.  New Gator coach Will Muschamp is fine with that.  In fact, when asked if he would place any restrictions upon where Dunkley could go, the coach said, “not at this time.”

As The Palm Beach Post points out, “That might change if Dunkley floats the idea of joining Alabama or Tennessee, a pair of schools he liked a lot as a senior at Pahokee High School.”

Dunkley will still have to sit out a season under NCAA transfer rules regardless of where he lands.

UF’s Dunkley Suspended For Academics

Want to know how not to get off to a good start with a new coaching staff?  Ask Florida receiver Chris Dunkley.  The former hotshot receiver prospect has been suspended by Will Muschamp for academic reasons.

“He’s suspended from the team at this point,” the coach said.  “Academically, he needs to handle some things.  That’s where we are right now.”

With Dunkley suspended, that’s one less body for the Gators to use in Saturday’s spring game… which has already been tweaked into more of a scrimmage format due to injury issues.

According to, Dunkley was the ninth best receiver prospect in the nation last year and a four-star player.
