Will Muschamp 'Pleased' With Addition Of Maryland Transfer Max Garcia

Depth was certainly a bit of a problem for Will Muschamp in his first season with the Florida Gators. There was some talent, but perhaps, not as much as the program was accustomed to, particularly on the offensive line.

With the arrival of Maryland transfer, Max Garcia, that should help. Muschamp announced on Monday that Garcia had signed his conference aid agreement, allowing him to transfer to the program. On Tuesday, Muschamp spoke with reporters about the of the offensive tackle, who started 12 games for the Terrapins last season.

"I always feel like you need to have 15 to 17 offensive linemen on scholarship," Muschamp said. "It's a developmental position. We've got 14 now and could lose four next year. Max is a good football player, an outstanding student. I'm very pleased to add him into the mix with our offensive line."

Because of NCAA rules, Garcia will not be eligible to play until the 2013 season.
