The first commitment of Jim McElwain's tenure at Florida looks to be leaving the program.
According to InsidetheGators.com, tight end Daniel Imatorbhebhe's locker has been cleared out and he has left the team. Imatorbhebhe was an early enrollee at Florida after McElwain took over from former Florida coach Will Muschamp.
He didn't play in the spring game and could be heading west to join his brother, a member of the class of 2016 who has verbally committed to USC. From InsidetheGators.com:
Imatorbhebhe's young brother, 2016 four-star wide receiver Josh Imatorbhebhe, recently committed to Southern Cal over Florida.
The source said he wouldn't be surprised if Daniel were to head west as well.
Daniel was a three-star recruit in the class of 2015. A native of Georgia, he was the No. 18 tight end in the country and the No. 36 prospect in the state.
Given Florida's situation at tight end, Imatorbhebhe might have been a candidate for a redshirt in 2015. The Gators return three players from 2014, including Jake McGee, a graduate transfer from Virginia in 2014. McGee suffered a season-ending left leg injury against Eastern Michigan and was granted a medical redshirt for a sixth season in 2015.
