LOOK: Florida players attack former DB Chris Steele on Twitter after he enters NCAA transfer portal
It’s been a rough week for the Florida Gators, and it seems like it may get even rougher based on some social media activity on Sunday night.
DB Chris Steele, the Gators’ highest-rated 2019 signee, entered the transfer portal this week. A report surfaced that his decision stemmed (at least in part) from not being able to change roommates. His roommate at Florida was QB Jalon Jones, who also entered the NCAA transfer portal before it emerged that two women had accused him of sexual assault in that same dorm room.
That would be a serious situation and certainly a good reason for Steele to want to switch rooms, and it’s understandable why he would want to leave Florida after that wasn’t granted.
Now, though, several Gators are going after Steele on Twitter, with a few receivers posting pictures of themselves making catches over Steele:

Many other players reacted to Grimes’ initial post, so it’s clear they’re using Steele’s departure as a rallying cry.
If Steele did indeed leave Florida because the Gators wouldn’t let him leave a room with someone accused of sexual assault, these tweets from current Gators aren’t going to age well.
