Boston College Will Reportedly Add Florida Offensive Lineman Ian Silberman

According to multiple reports, Florida offensive lineman Ian Silberman will be transferring to Boston College, where he will be eligible to play in 2014.

According to multiple reports, Florida offensive lineman Ian Silberman will transfer to Boston College, where he will be eligible to play in 2014.

Back in December, the Gainesville Sun's Robbie Andreu reported that Silberman would transfer to Louisville, reuniting with former Gators defensive coordinator Charlie Strong. With Strong now in Austin, Silberman reopened his commitment and will instead reunite with another former Gators coordinator on the Heights.

Since Silberman has already graduated, the guard will be eligible to play in 2014. The offensive lineman has started seven games for the Gators over the past two seasons, including the last four of the season.

The addition of Silberman bolsters the Eagles' offensive line in the wake of losing starting tackles Matt Patchan and Ian White. Silberman would become the second fifth-year transfer to come out of the University of Florida in as many years, joining Matt Patchan. Patchan started all 13 games in 2013, protecting Rettig's blind side and playing an crucial role in Andre Williams' record-breaking performance rushing.

The 6-foot-5, 303-pound lineman from Fleming Island, Florida was a four-star prospect out of high school. Silberman originally committed to Florida over claimed offers from Clemson, Florida State, Michigan, North Carolina and Tennessee.

Welcome to the Heights, Ian!
