Florida coach McElwain: OL Dorsey, PK Hardin transferring

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Florida coach Jim McElwain says offensive lineman Travaris Dorsey and place-kicker Austin Hardin are transferring.

McElwain said Monday that both guys plan to play elsewhere in 2016.

McElwain says Dorsey, a 6-foot-2, 321-pound redshirt sophomore, is transferring to Division II Tuskegee in Alabama. Dorsey played in 11 games last season, mostly on special teams. He will be eligible to play immediately.

Hardin, a senior who is graduating in May, would be eligible to play elsewhere as a graduate transfer. Hardin missed nine of 14 field-goal attempts last season. He hit a game-winner against Tennessee in 2014 and another one against Vanderbilt last year. But he was mostly unreliable in his three years at Florida, missing 20 of 36 attempts. Four of those were blocked.
