Boynton Beach native Jessamen Dunker to transfer from Florida

Still dealing with the fallout from a felony arrest earlier this year, redshirt freshman offensive lineman Jessamen Dunker will transfer from Florida, coach Will Muschamp announced Wednesday.

A graduate of Boynton Beach High, Dunker was arrested in January and charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle after he was pulled over by campus police on a scooter that was reported stolen. Dunker was suspended indefinitely following the arrest, but a return to the roster was expected at the time.

That door slammed shut Wednesday with Muschamp's announcement that Dunker would leave the program after just one season. According to Muschamp, he and Dunker sat down to discuss his future and the two came to the conclusion that it wasn't going to work out in Gainesville.

"He's got some pretty well-documented off the field issues and he needs a fresh start," Muschamp said. "He felt like he needed a fresh start and I didn't disagree with him."

In addition to the legal trouble, Dunker also was not well-liked by his teammates and struggled to fit in while at Florida, according to multiple reports. He did not play in a game as a freshman after coming to the Gators as the nation's No. 4 offensive guard and the No. 46 overall recruit in the country, according to ESPNU.

It is not yet known where Dunker will seek to transfer.

I hate seeing kids from our area get into circumstances like this. Hopefully he can get a fresh start somewhere else. Kid has tons of talent, looks like he made a few bad decisions early-on and it cost him.

No surprise here. Muschamp seems to be much stricter than Meyer was. Seems like every time one of these guys gets into major trouble they never come back from their suspensions. Just like the TE last year, AC Leonard.
Wish him well and hope he gets his act together where ever he lands.
Go Gators!


Gators defense crushes canes offense that folds like tissue EVERYTIME it faces a real defense. Those pansy ACC defenses are laughable.

Makes EASY work out of soft canes.

We don't even want to discuss your defense that is nonexistent.

Oops, Kansas State just scored again

Care to revise the recruiting rankings after all the transfers from your disgusting roster, ehhh maggots.

Or, like ol' GatorAlum, the prince of the worthless diploma, he likes to hang onto the preseason rankings. It is much easier to live in fantasyland like a good bible-thumping inbred is wont to do.

Hilarious!

Or, like ol' Cane Pig, the prince of the worthless diploma, he likes to hang onto the preseason rankings. It is much easier to live in fantasyland like a good thug cane inbred is wont to do.

That's right disgusting Pigs, if we were unranked in the preseason, and we lost most of our linebackers to assorted felonies and a CB that was a thief, what does that make us now? How can a cane team be more irrelevant than an unranked 7 - 6 no bowl game disaster with the #117 defense?
I ask myself these questions cause I don't recognize reality. I be a delusional cane maggot and a Pig.

To TheCurseOfArtKehoe,

You forgot Antonio Morrison. I think he's better than Spikes was at the same age.
