Godfrey to FAU or UCF? 'I have no idea, yet.'
UPDATED 12:38 p.m. ...
Is former Central Florida quarterback Jeff Godfrey changing his mind about possibly transferring to FAU – or even leaving UCF at all?
UCF coach George O’Leary told several media outlets after Tuesday morning's practice that Jeff Godfrey called him and they will meet soon about a possible return to the Knights.
On Monday night I asked Godfrey where he will be attending classes in the fall.
“I have no idea, yet,” Godfrey responded.
That was a far different answer than the one Godfrey gave a couple months ago.
In February Godfrey said UCF had given him a full release and told OwlAccess.com that, “FAU is the No 1 (choice).” He also said he was “very close” to transferring to Boca Raton.
Now it sounds like he might be missing UCF.
Citing messages on Godfrey's Twitter account, BayNews9 reported that Godfrey is now considering returning to UCF.
"Knight fans what do you think about Jeff Godfrey coming back."
The Tampa channel said Godfrey followed that tweet with this one:
"I have no problem apologizing bout wat [sic] I did bout leavin out on the team but wat [sic] luke (Campbell) and my dad had nothing to do with me I didn't say anything bad about the program or about GOL he has my most up respect."
As a freshman season in 2010 Godfrey led the Golden Knights to the Liberty Bowl and a Top 25 ranking. He lost the starting job to Blake Bortles last season.
