Florida cornerback reenters transfer portal after withdrawing from it last month
Elijah Blades is about to be on the move … again.
On Monday, Blades decided to reenter the NCAA transfer portal, according to 247Sports.com, which could bring the cornerback’s time at Florida to an end. This is the 2nd time he’s entered the portal since transferring to Florida this year, but he exited the portal the previous time in November.
Blades previously played at Texas A&M, and prior to that, he played at Arizona Western College. But he’s been committed to several other schools over the past 4 years, as he’s had quite the interesting journey.
Chris Hummer of 247Sports.com laid out Blades’ timeline of his college football career thus far:

Blades played in only 2 games for the Gators this season, collecting 3 tackles and a pass deflection. He had been dismissed by the program earlier in the year, which led to his previous decision to enter the transfer portal.
Now, Blades will again look for a new school. But this could be his final college stop, as he entered the portal as a graduate transfer.
