Florida TE Leonard to transfer

The SportsXchange

Florida tight end A.C. Leonard and coach Will Muschamp have decided it best for Leonard to transfer.

Muschamp said Wednesday at SEC Media Days that Leonard, 20, would benefit from a fresh start.

Leonard pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery charges in April after a fight with his girlfriend in February led to his arrest and then was cited for driving with a suspended license in May.

The 6-4, 244-pounder recovered from August knee surgery to return at full strength around midseason and in the final five games caught eight passes for 99 yards as a freshman in 2011. He was expected to play a bigger role in the offense for the Gators this season.
