After a freshman season marked by just eight catches and one nasty domestic violence arrest, sophomore A.C. Leonard will transfer from Florida, leaving behind a sizable hole on the tight end depth chart.
According to Michael DiRocco of Gator Nation, the Gators' top backup tight end met with head coach Will Muschamp on Tuesday, and the two came decided it would be best for the former 4-star recruit to move on.
Leonard arrived at UF as Scout's Inc.'s sixth-best tight end of the 2011 class, but his short-lived career with the Gators was derailed when he was arrested in February for assaulting his girlfriend.
Following the arrest, Muschamp suspended Leonard indefinitely before reinstating him in late March.
With Leonard moving on from the program, the Gators' tight end end depth chart features just one player with any significant experience—incumbent starter Jordan Reed—and a collection of talented, but inexperienced underclassmen behind him.
Let's take a look at how the tight end depth chart stacks up in the post-Leonard era.
