Boston College Football Recruiting: Florida's Matt Patchan Transferring To Ohio State Or Boston College

USA TODAY Sports

Florida Gators redshirt junior offensive tackle Matt Patchan is looking to transfer, with him likely landing at either Ohio State or Boston College.

The Gainesville Sun is reporting that Florida Gators redshirt junior offensive tackle Matt Patchan has decided to transfer. The 6-foot-6, 304 pound OT will reportedly transfer to play for one of his former coaches.

Patchan, who played in 27 games during an injury-plagued UF career, will either transfer to Ohio State, where Urban Meyer is the coach, or Boston College, where Steve Addazio is the coach. Meyer recruited Patchan to Florida and Addazio was his position coach at UF.

Patchan started in a total of eight games during his career at Florida, appearing in 27 games total. He missed the entire 2010 and much of the 2009 season due to an ACL injury. He started seven games in 2011 before another injury ended his year. He did not appear in a game in 2012 due to a strained pectoral muscle..

The offensive tackle is looking to reunite with one of two coaches that recruited him to the Swamp in the first place. Then Florida now Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer recruited Patchan, while Steve Addazio was his position coach under Meyer at UF.

Patchan will be a graduate student in 2013 and will not have to sit out a year under NCAA transfer rules. He has one year of eligibility left.

If he can stay healthy in 2013, Patchan would be strong add for Steve Addazio and the Eagles. Boston College is looking to replace both starting tackles next season -- Emmett Cleary and John Wetzel -- after losing both to graduation. Sophomore Dan Lembke and junior Aaron Kramer are set to replace Cleary and Wetzel, but the addition of Patchan could give the much maligned offensive line a boost next season.
