Florida announced on Thursday that fullback Rhaheim Ledbetter, tight end Kent Taylor, offensive lineman Quinteze Williams and offensive lineman Trevon Young will transfer from the school. Offensive lineman Ian Silberman, who just completed his redshirt junior season, will graduate on Saturday and play his final season at another school.

“These young men felt it was in their best interest to look for an opportunity to play somewhere else,’’ Will Muschamp said. “We wish all of them the best of luck.”

The biggest loss on paper is Ian Silberman. He was a valuable offensive lineman off the bench during the 2013 season, and while injuries continued to mount throughout the year, the redshirt junior received more playing time. However, he will now search for another school to finish his career for on the field.

Silberman graduates on Saturday and will be immediately eligible next year.

After redshirting during the 2012 season, Rhaheim Ledbetter switched from safety to play fullback. He didn’t record any stats on offense or special teams during his Florida career but did see time on special teams during the 2013 season.

The cousin of former Florida linebacker Brandon Spikes, Ledbetter was third on the depth chart at fullback behind Hunter Joyer and Gideon Ajagbe, and both of those players will return next season.

Sophomore tight end Kent Taylor didn’t play this season and would’ve taken a redshirt if he stayed in Gainesville. Taylor caught two passes for five yards and one touchdown as a freshman. The touchdown came at the end of the Sugar Bowl against Louisville.

Williams redshirt during the 2012 season and didn’t see the field during the 2013 season. He came to Gainesville as a defensive lineman but switched to the offensive side of the ball and couldn’t get on the field.

Trevon Young was a late addition to the 2013 recruiting class. The offensive lineman strongly considered an offer to play basketball at Eckerd College before signing with Florida to play offensive line.
