Reports: Former Clemson OL Jake Fruhmorgen Transferring To Baylor After Leaving Florida

Jake Fruhmorgen, an eight game starter for the national champion Clemson Tigers in 2016, is now heading to Baylor after a quick stop at Florida.

Fruhmorgen, a former high school All-American and four-star recruit, missed the end of last season with a shoulder injury.

The Florida native transferred to play for his home-state Gators, but left the program just four days after being announced as a new member of the team.

It was originally reported that Fruhmorgen was quitting football. However, that does not appear to be the case. Instead, he is heading to play for Matt Rhule at Baylor, according to reports.

From Sic'Em 365:

Former U.S. Army All-American and Clemson offensive lineman Jake Fruhmorgen will transfer to Baylor for the fall semester to complete his college football career, SicEm365 has learned. Originally part of Clemson's 2015 class, Fruhmorgen will redshirt in 2017 before being able to compete on the field for the Bears in 2018 and 2019.

On the Clemson side, TigerNet is also independently reporting that Fruhmorgen will play at Baylor.

The offensive tackle will have two years of eligibility remaining after he sits out the 2017 season.
