Jessamen Dunker decides to transfer
Gators coach Will Muschamp said the two met early Wednesday afternoon and came to a mutual decision that a transfer was the right move.
"He and I just felt like he needed a fresh start, and I didn't disagree with him," Muschamp said. "Didn't really get into where. We're going to continue to work through that. It's his job to finish up strong academically here at Florida."
The 6-foot-4, 301-pound Dunker -- the nation's No. 4 offensive guard and a four-star recruit out of Boynton Beach (Fla.) High School in 2012 -- has been suspended since his Jan. 14 arrest for allegedly stealing a scooter.
Dunker's attorney, Huntley Johnson, said Dunker purchased the scooter for $600 and did not know it was stolen.
Dunker also was cited in early March for driving with a suspended license.
Dunker redshirted in 2012 but was expected to compete for the starting spot at left guard this season.
