The Gators defeated the Tigers 11-9.Mandatory Credit: Scott Halleran /AllsportIn six games for the Florida Gators this season, quarterback Will Grier was extremely impressive. Grier threw for 1,204 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions, and completed over 65-percent of his passes, leading UF to a 6-0 start to the season. After being suspended 12 games for performance enhancing drugs, Grier will not be eligible to play until mid-way through next year, but according to a multiple reports, it is unlikely that his next game comes as a Gator.I can confirm Scout report that QB Will Grier is transferring from #Gators. Approached coaching staff about it last week.— Matt Baker (@MBakerTBTimes) December 19, 2015 Here’s more from Scout’s Bob Redman. Team sources have informed FightinGators.com that Florida redshirt freshman quarterback Will Grier approached the coaching staff this week and asked for a transfer. …Last week, Jim McElwain said that Grier would be back with the program January 5, after being asked to stay away from team activities and allow the team to play through the season without the distraction of Grier being around and unavailable.Despite the ability to return and compete for the job again, one which he wouldn’t be allowed to play until October 15, 2016 against Missouri, sources are telling FightinGators.com that Grier will likely transfer to another program.Redman notes that there is a chance that Grier stays, but assuming this decision stays, it is a huge blow to a Florida team that became very inept offensively without Grier. If he transfers to another FBS program, he will sit the entire 2016 season, and return as a junior in 2017.[Scout]last_img
