2015 QB set to visit

Brent Pease has already found his quarterback for the Class of 2014 and now he is moving on to recruiting a quarterback for 2015.

One of the quarterbacks Pease is recruiting is 2015 Arlington (Va.) Bishop O’Connell quarterback Chris Riddle.

“Coach Pease talked to my coach on Tuesday night,” Riddle said. “He was inviting me down for a practice and their spring game. I called coach Pease tonight (Wednesday) and I’m going to visit Florida on March 30th for a spring practice. I was going to go to their spring game, but coach said that it would be better if I came during a practice so I could have more one on one time with the coaches.”

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Riddle has watched Florida on TV a lot while growing up and that’s spurned excitement for his visit.

“I’m really excited to meet coach Pease and coach Will Muschamp in person,” Riddle said. “I want to see how the team is together and meet some of the players. I also want to talk with coach Pease more because he has a lot of experience in coaching and has a lot of knowledge with producing good quarterbacks. He really knows his stuff when it comes to quarterback play.”

Riddle describes himself as a pro-style quarterback with good accuracy and a high football IQ that he believes could help him in the Florida offense.

“I think I would fit into the Florida offense well,” Riddle said. “They run a pro style offense that focuses on the run first. I think as a pro-style quarterback I would fit right in.”

So far Riddle has visited Georgia, Notre Dame, Boston College and LSU and he plans to visit Florida and LSU again this spring.
