Florida tight end Kemore Gamble apparently took the old saying, “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” to heart. After 5 seasons at Florida, Gamble will use his extra year at UCF.

The former Gator tight end confirmed his transfer commitment after posting photos from his Orlando campus visit, including one with a “national champions” belt.

A Miami Southridge product, Gamble was Florida’s starting tight end in 2021. In 13 games, he had 31 catches for 414 yards and 4 touchdowns. In Florida’s 29-17 Gasparilla Bowl loss to UCF, Gamble had one catch for 15 yards. Over the last 4 seasons, Gamble had 48 catches for 632 yards and 7 TDs.

Gamble signed with Florida in 2017 and redshirted his first year in Gainesville. This past season was Gamble’s redshirt senior year, but the NCAA’s waiver for the 2020 season allows him to suit up for a sixth season.
