Florida's Jake Fruhmorgen Quits Football Just Four Days After Officially Joining Team

Four days after being officially announced as a transfer to the program, Florida offensive lineman Jake Fruhmorgen has reportedly quit football.

Fruhmorgen was set to redshirt this year, after transferring in from Clemson.

He started eight games of the 2016 season for the national champion Tigers.

Last year, Fruhmorgen missed time due to a shoulder injury, his second straight season finishing the year with an injury at Clemson. It is unclear why he has decided to step away from the sport.

Scout's Bob Redman broke the news last night:

The exact reasons for Jake Fruhmorgen to quit football have not been collected yet, but a few sources have indicated that he will no longer play the sport.

Fruhmorgen was a part time starter in his first two years at Clemson but finished both seasons on the injured list and unable to compete. He was finishing up a class at Santa Fe last week and finally arrived at Florida where he was going to have to sit out a season because of transferring.

Fruhmorgen had just been officially announced as a new member of the team, along with Notre Dame quarterback transfer Malik Zaire, on Monday.

We'll update as more comes out about Fruhmorgen's decision, and wish him the best with everything going forward.
