GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida safety Cody Riggs, who started every game last season, will transfer for his final year of eligibility.
Coach Will Muschamp announced Riggs' intentions Wednesday, saying the junior from Fort Lauderdale wants a fresh start.
Riggs is on pace to graduate in May and will be able to transfer and play right away in the fall.
Riggs ranked fourth on the team with 51 tackles in 2013. He also had three pass breakups and 1 1/2 sacks. He played in 40 games over three seasons, totaling 107 tackles, two sacks and an interception.
The Gators also lost safety Jaylen Watkins to graduation, and cornerbacks Loucheiz Purifoy and Marcus Roberson left school early to enter the NFL draft. So without Riggs, Florida will have to revamp much of its secondary.
