Former florida quarterback Jalen Kitna entered the transfer portal less than a week after accepting a plea deal that resulted in the dismissal of child pornography charges against him.
Kitna put her name on the website Monday, according to ESPN.
Kitna is the son of the ex nfl quarterback Jon Kitna and enrolled in Florida as a four-star recruit. He appeared in four games during the 2022 season for the Gators.
He pleaded no contest to two counts of disorderly conduct Wednesday and five felony child pornography charges were dismissed.

The counts were second degree misdemeanors, and Kitna was sentenced to six months probation for each charge.
«I want to start by apologizing to my family, my friends and those who care about me,» Kitna said. «Your support throughout this ordeal has meant a lot to me. The hardest thing about this whole process has been seeing how it has affected you.
«The valuable lessons I’ve learned through this whole deal have been very helpful. I’m looking forward to applying those things and moving forward.»

Kitna was arrested on November 30, 2022 and charged with two counts of distribution of child exploitative material and three counts of possession of child pornography.
Police said Kitna shared two images of young girls who were sexually abused online through Discord, an instant messaging social platform.
A search of Kitna’s phone found three additional photos showing girls in a graphic nature, which had been saved to Kitna’s phone a year earlier. The girls’ ages were not estimated, according to The Associated Press.
