Gators wide receiver Story set to transfer

Redshirt freshman wide receiver Ja'Juan Story will transfer from Florida, coach Will Muschamp announced through a statement Friday morning.

Story, a 6-foot-3, 206-pound four-star recruit from Brooksville Nature Coast, did not play in a game last season, spending the majority of the year on the scout team.

"Ja'Juan came me to Thursday afternoon and indicated that he wanted to transfer," Muschamp said through a school release. "He just felt like this wasn't a good fit for him and he needed a fresh start. Ja'Juan is a good student and was a good teammate and we wish him the best of luck."

Story had more than 20 offers from Division I schools before ultimately enrolling at Florida last summer. He took visits to Ohio State and Oregon during the recruiting process.

“I met with Coach Muschamp Thursday afternoon and told him I wanted to transfer," Story said. "I had a great experience here and met a bunch of great people. It is a great football program with great players and coaches. It just wasn't the right fit for me."
