Florida Gators adding two transfer quarterbacks: Josh Grady, Luke Del Rio

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.

“We wish him the best. We’d love to have him stay here, but obviously as it sits, we’re right now with two scholarship quarterbacks,” McElwain said.

Will Grier looks to have slight edge in Florida Gators quarterback battle with Treon Harris

Taking the Florida Gators2015 Orange & Blue Debut at face value, considering head coach Jim McElwain’s post-game comments and reading between the lines a bit, it is not hard to see that redshirt freshman Will Grier has a leg up on sophomore Treon Harris in the team’s starting quarterback tug-of-war.

Grier, who opened Saturday’s spring game as the starter on the Orange team (which was comprised of first-team offensive players), looked poised in the pocket and decisive with his throws.

In fact, the only criticism McElwain tossed on Grier after the contest was displeasure over the signal caller getting frustrated when three perfectly-thrown balls were dropped by his pass catchers.
