Florida TE Thompson transferring

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida tight end Colin Thompson is transferring after two injury-filled seasons.

The 6-foot-4, 256-pound sophomore from Warminster, Pennsylvania, was one of the top tight end recruits in 2012. But he played in just three games over two years with the Gators, missing time with foot injuries.

Florida sports information director Steve McClain says ''we granted permission for schools to contact Colin. The SEC approved a medical exemption for him in May, and we will share that information with the other institutions.''

Thompson reportedly visited Penn State on Thursday.

Thompson is the second tight end to leave Florida since last season. Sophomore Kent Taylor transferred to Kansas in December.

The Gators expect to replace both with Virginia transfer Jake McGee, a graduate student who enrolled at Florida last month.
