Florida LB Dee Finley to transfer from program

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida coach Will Muschamp says linebacker Dee Finley is transferring.

Muschamp says Finley "would like to pursue other opportunities."

Finley, a redshirt sophomore from Auburn, Ala., was charged with resisting arrest without violence after a traffic stop on campus last month. He was suspended one week. He played in five games this season, mostly on special teams. He has 12 career tackles.

One of the top recruits in the country in 2008, Finley attended prep school before enrolling at Florida. He switched from safety to linebacker, but never panned out.

Finley says he enjoyed his time at Florida, but that "it's best for me to move on and get a fresh start somewhere else." He will remain through the end of the semester.
