    I read on TOS that we may be pushing for him? Does anyone here know if that's true? And if so then how many QBs are we going to sign in the 2020 class?


    Right now he's committed to Bama, but some are saying that he may visit Gainesville and coach Mullen?

    Rumors/smoke... coming from TOS.

    I’m pretty sure he was a Gator baseball comit at one time. Maybe he can come in and play baseball and football for us?

    I saw on gsmb he wants to play baseball too and Bama won’t let him. They said he was about to flip... grain of salt

    Curious about recruiting a pocket passer but if a baseball player probably somewhat athletic. Could explain the Richardson not being the only 2020 qb smoke. Don’t know how to feel about our qb splitting time but we’ll have options then hopefully

    Big arm. Can make all the throws. A pro style qb who is willing to take off and run.

    Alabama flips Florida baseball commit to line up at QB and on the diamond for Tide

    According to this report, Beck originally committed to Florida to play baseball.
    "Beck committed to play baseball at Florida last summer, but his football prospects picked up after coming off the bench to replace an injured starter at Providence School last fall. He threw for 994 yards and six touchdowns in just four games."

    So does being committed to Bama make him a good prospect for us, even though he's listed as a pro style QB and ranked 10th at his position? I have no issue with going after a pro style QB but why did we stop pursuing Harrison Bailey?

    Does that include a throw home from deep center field on a one hopper to still get a tagging runner from third?

    Carson said he’s not a true dual threat but is a capable and willing runner when need be. He also said he’s not afraid of competition and won’t back down it.

    He’s visiting on the 2nd. Interesting.

    The recruiting services had Driskell as a PRO and Brissett as a DT ...so I wouldn’t read too much into it.

    Beck is a much better fit for this offense than Bailey. I wouldn’t pay to close attention to the rankings right now. Justin Fields was the 29th ranked DT QB in Jan after his Jr year. Beck will move before the summer.

    Beck and Jones are both aware that UF plans to sign two QB's in the next class. Beck is committed to Bama but looking.

    Beck will be the best passer we had since Leak the minute he step on campus. The last time we signed a baseball player for QB, the guy won Heisman and NC.

    Like Krull went from baseball to football, it would not surprise me to see Beck dabble or experiment in baseball at some point in the future.

    I believe Mullen has stated his priorities:
    1. leadership
    2. accuracy
    3. decision making
    4. running ability

    But I doubt he'll talk to anyone who doesn't have all 4 abilities.

    Trask and Frank's will be gone, so makes sense to get 2 QBs next year. 2 leave, you add 2.

    Jeff Driskel was a great baseball player as well. I might have argued that was his best sport early on

    Having seen this guy play twice last season he is a VERY nice fit for UF offense. Kid is a legit big time talent, and it appears he is now leaning to football only vs baseball

    I wonder if we're looking at Steele's former teammate, DJ Uiagialelel. Threw 48 TDs and ran for six. Might as well start with the best player available at the position.

    Beck slings the ball much like Trevor Lawrence who I watched a couple times in Cartersville GA when I was up there. I think a perfect fit for the 2020 team with some of these tall fast receivers coming in.
