Gators backup OL James Wilson said Friday he has requested to transfer from Florida.

Because he hasn't been granted the release yet, he would not say what school he is thinking of attending.

"I got a few schools in mind," he said. "I want to go to a smaller school."

Wilson said Florida coach Urban Meyer tried to convince him to stay and said that he would start this season, but Wilson said his "heart was just not there anymore."

The freshman, who dressed for four games, did not play at all this season.

One of the top prospects of the 2007 recruiting class, Wilson blocked for Gators quarterback Tim Tebow for three seasons at Ponte Vedra Nease High.

He committed to Southern Cal before switching and signing with Florida, where he redshirted his freshman year after knee surgery.
