    Does Driskell's injury/redshirt affect QB recruiting?

    Good question, but from what I'm hearing about Grier he's not afraid of competition.

    He will have to apply for a medical redshirt.
    Left knee right ankle will bring a different player back limited mobility.
    Sad he had such great talent.

    Well, in spite of Strange's strange yet oh so thorough explanation, I decided to look into our QB situation a bit more.

    Had no idea we have 8 QBs.

    Roster lists:
    Jeff Driskell JR
    Tyler Murphy RJR
    Christian Provancha RJR
    Ryan McGriff RSO
    Skyler Mornhinweg RFR
    Jacob Guy RFR
    Max Staver FR
    Chris Wilkes FR

    If Driskell redshirts, I believe he'd have 2 more years (RJR and RSR). Would make next years QB competition VERY interesting (Murphy with a years worth of starts under his belt in his RSR year, Driskell with a years worth of starts in his RJR year, Staver as a SO and Grier as a true freshman). Can't see any other QB recruits wanting to take on that group. Have to believe only Grier will sign.

    First, Staver is redshirting, so he will be a RS FR in 2014, not a SO.
    Second, Grier plans to redshirt in 2014 and is very solid commit to the Gators, so NO it does not have any impact on QB recruiting.
    Third - Provancha, Guy & Wilkes are all walk-ons, but they are all accomplished HS QBs and Wilkes is our very own Weinke in that he is a 23 year old former pro baseball player. That maturity goes a long way.
