Florida offers a top 2015 quarterback

The Florida coaches have been working overtime this week handing out new offers to the classes of 2014 and 2015.

On Saturday morning the Gators offered 2015 quarterback Torrance Gibson (6-4, 195, Plantation, FL American Heritage) who was excited about the offer.

“The offer from Florida means a lot to me,” Gibson said. “I have been working hard and I’ve been waiting on a long time for the opportunity from Florida and the chance to showcase my talent to everyone.”

Instead of an assistant coach calling Gibson to give him the good news Will Muschamp asked Gibson to call him so he could give him the news personally.

“Coach Muschamp asked me to call him today,” Gibson said. “He’s the one who gave me the offer. He told me that I’m the guy he wants at quarterback and that my name is on the top of the 2015 recruiting list for Florida.”

Gibson being from the South Florida area is familiar with Florida and the history of the Gators program.

“Florida has a lot of good things going for them,” Gibson said. “I like all of the great quarterbacks that went to Florida and the tradition that Florida has.”

When Will Muschamp gave Gibson the offer on Saturday morning he also had a message for the 2015 quarterback.

“Coach Muschamp told me that I will fit great into his new offense at Florida,” Gibson said. “He told me that I will fit great into the offense because I can run and pass as a quarterback.”

With still 13 months until signing day for the Class of 2015 Gibson is no rush to make a decision but he does want to visit Florida.

“I plan to visit Florida sometime this summer,” Gibson said. “I don’t have any leaders right now because I’m trying to take my time with my recruitment. “
