Florida TE Kemore Gamble announces he’ll enter transfer portal

GAINESVILLE, Florida – Another Florida senior has announced a decision on his future in football.

Wednesday, tight end Kemore’s bet announced that he will not be making the 2022 NFL Draft, but instead will use the free year of eligibility granted by the NCAA after the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic and request a transfer.

Gamble broke the news on their Twitter account.

“I have a huge opportunity to make the 2022 NFL Draft,” Gamble wrote. “But after a lot of prayers and discussions with my parents and relatives, I decided to enter my name on the transfer portal for my final year of eligibility.

“As much as it hurts to leave the University of Florida, I think it’s the best decision for me right now. I can’t wait for the opportunities to come, but I’ll always be a Florida Gator.”

“It was a blessing to go to the University of Florida to play football and graduate from this special place,” Gamble said in his farewell note. “I want to thank God for giving me the strength to overcome the obstacles I have encountered over the past 4 years.

“Plus, I couldn’t have done it without the courage of my parents Keiva, Charles (Peto) and Jerome. I also want to thank Mr. Taft and David Cooney, who taught me to see the bright side of life. Finally, I would like to thank the coach (Dan) Mullencoach (Larry) Scott and coach (Tim) Brewster for helping me become a better player and man. Also, Paul (Silvestri) and the training staff for keeping me healthy throughout my years here. “
