Florida edge rusher Andrew Chatfield, a four-star recruit coming out of high school in 2018, is transferring to Oregon State.

Chatfield announced the move on Twitter after entering the transfer portal on Aug. 31. He suited up for the Gators in the season opener and against USF while staying on scholarship, leaving the door open for him to reconsider. But he ultimately chose to move on to OSU after visiting for last week’s blowout win over Idaho.

Chatfield played in all 12 games for the Gators last year and totaled 13 tackles, 4 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks. After dealing with injuries in fall camp, he found himself lower on the depth chart than he’d prefer.

In 2018, 247Sports rated Chatfield as the thirteenth best weak-side defensive end. Now he’s dropped to a three-star prospect as a transfer. He won’t be able to play for OSU this year, but Chatfield still has two years of eligibility left. Eager to get more playing time, he should be able to prove how good he truly is in the Pac-12.
