GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Florida coach Urban Meyer accidentally confirmed Monday former USC running back Emmanuel Moody is transferring to the defending national champions.
``He's not here yet,'' Meyer said during his weekly news conference.
Meyer quickly realized his error and said, ``He's not here.'' Then, he paused and said, ``Oops.''
Thus ends a week of speculation about where Moody would end up.
A 6-foot-1, 205-pound sophomore from Texas, Moody decided to transfer after getting caught in a glut of highly touted tailbacks. He has to sit out the 2007 season under the NCAA's transfer rules and will have three years of eligibility remaining. He apparently made his decision Monday and was expected to enroll soon.
Before missing the final four games because of a sprained ankle last season, Moody gained 458 yards on 79 carries and finished as Southern California's second-leading rusher.
Meyer also said the Gators could be without starting cornerback Markihe Anderson in Saturday's season opener against Western Kentucky. Anderson sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee Saturday.
``We're still hopeful he's going to be ready,'' Meyer said, adding that Anderson definitely would return for the Sept. 8 game against Troy.
