NCAA deems Florida transfer WRs Grimes, Jefferson eligible

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Transfer wide receivers Trevon Grimes and Van Jefferson, two of Florida's most dynamic players during spring practice, are now eligible to play.

The NCAA on Thursday granted both players waivers to play in 2018. The move comes one day before the Gators open fall camp.

Grimes spent last season at Ohio State, catching three passes for 20 yards. Jefferson spent the past three seasons at Mississippi, hauling in 91 catches for 999 yards and four touchdowns the last two years.

Both transferred to Florida in January.

Jefferson still needs another waiver, one from the Southeastern Conference, because he transferred from one league school to another. That waiver is expected to be a formality.
