Florida Gators head coach Jim McElwain announced Wednesday that sophomore quarterback Treon Harris will start the team’s season opener on Saturday over redshirt freshman Will Grier, though all McElwain claimed to have done was decided who will take the first snap against the New Mexico State Aggies.
“Will obviously will play,” McElwain clarified. “As we said, someone starts, someone comes in. Both of them, I feel, [are] deserving of it. Both of them had a really good spring and fall, and we’re excited about seeing them both of those guys play. Treon will go out and take the first snap.”
