    He has another year of HS and stands a good chance of red shirting, so he has plenty of time to put on some weight. The kid is only 16 or 17 years old right now. He's gonna be just fine and I can't wait to see what kind of recruits he attracts:wave:

    Exactly.

    I almost forgot that he's only a junior in high school too.

    Welcome, Will!

    The Tar Heel State has been incredibly good to us. It's almost like some kind of karmic restitution after Steve Shipp.

    He's a four star and ranked about 6th, but hasn't been re-rated since that game where he shredded that other team and all the national single game passing records. I don't know if they will be adding a star to his rating or naming a star after him.

    This is also big news on the diversity front. I'm sure he's the first Amish player who ever committed to UF. Will he have to travel by horse and buggy to away games? That could be complicated.

    My favorite part of his father's quote is that he said "Will is excited at the opportunity of winning national championships" at Florida.

    Love the use of the plural there.

    He will be fine weight and strength wise by the time he competes for a spot. He won't ever be Driskel or Tebow, but I see no reason he can't play upwards of 210-215, which is fine on a 6'3" frame. That's about what McCaron is. He was also listed about the same as a prep.

    Our 2013 class isn't even finished yet and we are starting the 2014 with a bang. We have arguably one of the best QB's, top WR and a top DT for 2014 already. All are on the ESPN watch list and probably Valentine and Grier will be in the 150. Way to go BOOM & Co.

    Not to mention the first Amish kid with a Twitter account. Will truly is a trail blazer!

    This was my prize recruit for 2014. He will play a huge roll in the 2014 class and I believe he becomes a leader from day 1. A year backing up JD and he will be ready for his era to begin.

    My prize recruit for 2014. QB's can have a big affect on a recruiting class and Grier will have that affect. It will not be long before he has his 5th star and I believe he will be the #1 rated qb of 2014. His arm should attract some big time wr's. The future is so bright here at UF. Way to go coaches!!

    Everytime I see that name Will Grier I think of Grandpa Walton....I know his name was Geer but I'm sure 5 years from now I will still be thinking of Grandpa Walton.
