GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- We are firmly into the college football offseason, but there's still plenty of Gators news ....

Florida nearly tied the school record for most players drafted in a seven-round format. The Gators had eight players selected -- including DTSharrif Floyd (Minnesota) and S Matt Elam (Baltimore) in the first round -- in last weekend's NFL draft. Miami selected three former Gators: LB Jelani Jenkins, RB Mike Gillislee and K Caleb Sturgis. You can find GatorNation's breakdown of UF's draftees here.

Having eight players drafted is more than a confirmation of last season's 11-2 record. It's also a big recruiting tool, and UF coach Will Muschamp hopes to use it to his advantage.

UF coach Billy Donovan announced Wednesday that freshman point guard Braxton Ogbueze will transfer. Ogbueze played in only 23 games and scored only 19 points, grabbed 13 rebounds, and had seven assists in 2012-13.

"I’ve appreciated the opportunity here at Florida and have learned a lot that will help me in the future," Ogbueze said in a statement.

The 6-foot, 182-pound Ogbueze was a four-star recruit and the No. 94 overall player in the 2012 ESPN 100. He was the country’s No. 7 point guard.

On Tuesday the Gators added Rutgers transfer Eli Carter. The 6-2 Carter led the Scarlet Knights in scoring in 2012-13 (14.8 points per game) while shooting 38.4 percent from the floor and 32.0 percent from 3-point range.
