TE Kent Taylor bound for Kansas

Former Florida tight end Kent Taylor is transferring to Kansas, he confirmed Tuesday on Twitter.

The 6-foot-5, 223-pound Taylor was ranked as the nation's No. 1 tight end in the class of 2012, but he failed to make an impact for the Gators.

He had two catches for 5 yards and a touchdown as a freshman -- the scoring grab came in the team's 33-23 loss to Louisville in the Allstate Sugar Bowl -- but did not play as a sophomore.

Taylor was one of six Gators players, all on the offensive side of the ball, to announce that they would transfer earlier this month.
