FORMER ARCHBISHOP Wood tight end Colin Thompson is transferring to Temple after two injury-plagued seasons at Florida, sources familiar with the situation confirmed.

Rated as one of the top players at his position in the recruiting class of 2012, he never caught a pass for the Gators. He played in three games, all last year.

Thompson, a 6-4, 250-pounder, suffered repeated foot issues. In May, a UF spokesman said the Southeastern Conference had approved a medical exemption for him, which means he could be eligible to play this season, if the NCAA agrees.
