Valdosta - The Valdosta State football team may be getting another Division I from the Southeastern Conference.
The Florida Today newspaper in Melbourne is reporting University of Florida running back Markus Manson will play his final season for the Blazers.
The newspaper says Manson has been granted his release from his Florida scholarship.
A highly touted running back from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Manson was the Gators second leading rusher as a freshman but a move to defensive back in last season did not work out.
WALB News 10 Sports was unable to reach Valdosta State head coach David Dean to confirm Markus Manson's transfer.
