Jake Fruhmorgen was a prize transfer for the Florida Gators after he decided to transfer from Clemson in January of this year. However, it seems that he does not want to keep playing football according to what sources are telling Scout. The 6’5″, almost 300-pound offensive lineman had some troubles back in October for the Tigers when he took a personal leave of absence. He had just officially joined the Gators — despite committing back in March — less than a week ago along with graduate transfer quarterback Malik Zaire
It seems that leave of absence may become permanent as Scout is reporting that he will give up the sport. The exact reasons remain unknown, but he does live close by in Tampa so he’s already close to home should he really decide to hang up his cleats. He would have had to sit out the 2017 season anyway as he was not a graduate transfer and would have had to observe the NCAA transfer rules.
Fruhmorgen was originally considering the Gators in 2015 when he was choosing between schools, but ultimately went with Clemson and was a part time starter for the Tigers. According to his Clemson bio, Fruhmorgen had 13 knockdown blocks last season in the eight games he played and started.
