Muschamp spent Tuesday night in Orlando and while much of the message remained the same, Muschamp did offer a few news items:

--Sophomore LB Graham Stewart, who has left the program to be closer to his home in Connecticut, is planning to transfer to UConn and petition the NCAA to let him play immediately.

“A family situation occurs like that and you’re so far away from home, you deserve to have the opportunity and shouldn’t be penalized for it,” Muschamp told the Orlando Sentinel.

--Muschamp announced that DE Tevin Westbrook is moving to tight end in the fall to add depth to the position. Westbrook has not been able to crack the regular rotation on defense.

--CB Jeremy Brown started 10 games in 2010 but missed all of last season due to a knee injury. Muschamp told the crowd that the Gators are hopeful that Brown will be cleared for full contact on July 1 and re-enter the mix in the secondary.

--Reserve WR Stephen Alli recently underwent surgery to repair a stress fracture in his leg and is expected to be sidelined for at least three months according to Muschamp.
