Fla. hasn't heard from Sabelhaus

August 07, 1996|By Paul McMullen

As of yesterday afternoon, the compliance office at Florida had received no request for a release from Bobby Sabelhaus.

Sabelhaus, a McDonogh School graduate and the best quarterback prospect to come out of the Baltimore area in more than two decades, has told Gators coach Steve Spurrier that he will not report with the team's other veterans on Friday. After a rocky spring practice, the redshirt freshman must decide whether he wants to return to Florida or transfer.

Maryland is one of five other schools that were mentioned by his father, but if Sabelhaus is going to transfer, time is of the essence. If Sabelhaus wants to play for another NCAA Division I-A college in 1997, he cannot enroll at Florida for the coming fall semester.

NOTES: Terps coach Mark Duffner will oversee his second Fan Fest Aug. 17 (1 p.m.) at Byrd Stadium. An autograph session and scrimmage are open to the public, no charge. . . . Wide receiver Kendrick Walton, who was hurt in the 1995 opener and missed the rest of last season, has received a medical redshirt from the NCAA and has three years of eligibility remaining.
