The Florida Gators coaching staff is searching for a quarterback to lead the class of 2016 and over the next few days they will have several prospects on campus to watch workout.

It all started on Saturday when quarterback Kyle Trask (6-6, 212, Manvel, TX High) visited Gainesville to workout with offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier.

“It went great, the staff was great,” Trask said. “I had a workout with Coach Nussmeier and the coaching staff at camp where they put me through some quarterback drills. They showed me around the campus and the coaches all talked to me. It was a pretty cool experience for me.”

Head coach Jim McElwain and offensive coordinator Nussmeier both watched Trask go through the camp, and the Texas quarterback says that he got a lot of out working with Nussmeier and co.

“It was really fun working with Coach Nussmeier, he’s a really cool coach,” he said. “I got a lot out of the workout and he was telling me that he was very impressed by my workout and that I couldn’t have done any better.”

Trask doesn’t hold an offer from Florida at this time, but the coaching staff did tell him what the next step in his recruitment was and when he would hear back from the Gators.

“I talked to Coach McElwain and Coach Nussmeier and they told me to wait until after June 19th because that is when camps ends,” Trask said. “They said they have four more quarterbacks coming in this week and after that they are going to sit down and a make a decision on who they like.”

McElwain made sure to leave a big impression on the Texas quarterback and also made sure to explain his résumé to Trask.

“Coach McElwain was telling me about the campus and I really liked the campus,” he said. “He was telling me about his past experience with quarterbacks and how Florida would be a great fit for me.”

If Florida decides to offer Trask in the coming weeks, than the Gators would certainly jump up the quarterbacks’ board.

“It would be an opportunity of a lifetime,” Trask said. “It would be a dream to go to Florida and to have offer from them because they are great school with a good background with football.”

 

INSIDERS TAKE: Trask is a guy that Florida wanted to see on campus after Nussmeier watched him this spring. Right now there a few guys that Florida is looking at, but Trask is someone to continue to keep an eye on heading down the road.

    AS, I watched this kid’s highlight tape and I’m a little confused as to why he’s such an unknown. He’s got great size, arm strength looks good, and shows some good accuracy especially downfield (granted it was a highlight tape so he can’t look that bad). But do you know why he is basically unranked? Surely a 6-6 212 pound QB has peaked the interest of a couple major schools?

      I’m honestly not sure because he’s a guy that I just started looking into.
