Not long after he was officially announced as a member of Florida’s football team, it looks like offensive lineman Jake Fruhmorgen is no longer with the team.

First reported by Scout and confirmed by Rivals’ Inside The Gators, Fruhmorgen has parted ways with the team.

Fruhmorgen was announced as part of the team Monday along with quarterback Malik Zaire, a transfer from Notre Dame. While Zaire is a graduate transfer and therefore eligible to play immediately, Fruhmorgen was set to sit out the 2017 season as part of NCAA transfer rules.


Fruhmorgen was an eight-game starter on Clemson’s offensive line in 2016 before suffering a shoulder injury that prematurely ended his season — and his time with the Tigers. He left Clemson’s team after the shoulder injury and wasn’t with the program as the Tigers beat Alabama in the College Football Playoff.

He told Inside The Gators in March that he “always liked” Florida but didn’t seriously consider the Gators at the time of his recruitment because of the questions surrounding then-Florida coach Will Muschamp’s job status.

A Tampa native, Fruhmorgen was a four-star offensive tackle recruit in the class of 2015.
