    He’s a walk on and third string? Not sure what he’s expecting but best of luck.

    So the transfer portal is for walk-ons too?

    Its a good way to see what options he has. He is a RS JR so he may be close to his degree, go somewhere and start before the 9-5 life begins.

    With what we potentially have coming back next year and the new guys coming in, makes sense.

    I went to high school with his mom, good kid. He's a grad transfer from what I understand.

    He's not on scholarship. He has ZERO ill will towards the Gators. Its a case where he just wants to play, probably D2 or D3 before his football career ends. You all read to much into things.

    He was never going to play a meaningful down at UF so it really doesn't matter. There are much greater odds that Kadarious Toney starts at QB. The kid is there for Scout.

    If he's a walk-on RS Jr, he'd probably be able to get immediate eligibility in FBS under the walk-on exception or as a grad transfer.

    I'm shocked that we have a backup QB that is not the subject 17 threads about why he is not starting.

    Whybare they even reporting about walk ons transferring... at keast if he was the backup would make some sense... but third string?

    Slow news day apparently.

    Maybe we should start him so he doesn’t transfer.

    Honor him for all he has done as a walk on.

    He will have his undergraduate degree from the University of Florida and might find a smaller school, where he could get someone to pay for his masters and concurrently give him an opportunity to play some football on something more than the scout team.

    He can still play while in the portal right? I assume this is mostly just to allow other schools to contact him

    Nick, thanks for all your hard work for the team in practice and support on the sidelines every week. Hope you find a scholarship somewhere and get a chance to play. Appreciate you being a Gator player on your own dime.

    He was a great teammate and all the guys respect him. I heard some very nice comments. Hope he can fulfill his dreams elsewhere.
