Quincy Lenton

Quincy Lenton (14) lines up on special teams at Florida's game against Vanderbilt in 2019. Lenton was recruited to play at UF while Jim McElwain served as head coach.

Florida defensive back Quincy Lenton officially entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer, according to Matt Zenitz, Senior SEC football reporter for AL.com.

Lenton joined the University of Florida in 2016 as a three-star recruit from Meridian, Mississippi. In his first season as a Gator, the defensive back was redshirted and, subsequently, did not appear on the field once.

As a redshirt freshman in 2017, Lenton appeared in four games for the Gators, but did not record any statistics. Lenton did not get a chance to prove himself in 2018 due to a season-ending Achilles tendon tear in fall camp before the season.

Lenton shone brightest in 2019, appearing in all 13 games as a member of the special teams unit and a reserve defensive back for the Gators. He managed to record a career-high six total tackles. Five came on special teams. He had a career-high two tackles at South Carolina last season.

The redshirt senior has not seen the field this season.
