(Note: Everything as far as the 2020 season is concerned is obviously up in the air with the entire world dealing with COVID-19)
Former Michigan Outside Linebacker and Flanagan High School graduate Devin Gil tweeted this afternoon that he is taking his talents back to the Sunshine State to finish his collegiate career as a graduate transfer at USF.
After discussing this major decision with my family I have decided to complete my 5th year at the University of South Florida. #GoBulls pic.twitter.com/0GUsi9HB0t— Devin Gil (@devin_gil) April 14, 2020
Through four seasons in Ann Arbor, the 6’1”, 236-pound linebacker appeared in 40 games for the Wolverines and logged 14 starts on defense, piling up 47 tackles in a maize and blue uniform. Gil mostly contributed on special teams, earning the team’s Special Team’s Player of the Week honors after their 45-14 stomping of Notre Dame last fall.
The native Floridian announced his intention to enter the transfer portal in March, ultimately deciding to finish his career back in his homestate. A three-star prospect out of Flanagan High School in Pembroke Pines, Gil chose Michigan over offers from Miami, Louisville, UCF and USF.
With a single year of eligibility left, he adds veteran depth to a 2020 linebacker group that includes returning contributors like Dwayne Boyles, Antonio Grier and Andrew Mims.
