Already enrolled at the University of Florida for the Summer A semester, Vanderbilt graduate transfer quarterback/wide receiver Josh Grady will join the Florida Gators for the 2015 season, the school announced on Friday.
Grady (6-foot, 202 pounds) will be immediately eligible to join the Gators after playing eight games at wideout but not recording a single catch for the Commodores in 2014. He played some quarterback in 2013 but has yet to produce at either position during his collegiate career.
As a standout signal caller at Armwood High School, the Tampa native scored 38 touchdowns (14 rushing) and only threw five interceptions during his senior state title-winning season.
Grady will be just the third scholarship-holding quarterback on Florida’s roster. He will fight with redshirt junior walk-on Jacob Guy for No. 3 responsibilities behind redshirt freshman Will Grier and sophomore Treon Harris, who are battling for the starting gig.
The Gators are also reportedly planning to add sophomore undergraduate transfer QB Luke Del Rio, who will not be eligible to play at Florida until 2016. Del Rio began his career as a walk-on at Alabama in 2013 before moving to Oregon State last season.
