The Florida football team is coming off another season in which Jim McElwain proved he is capable of turning the fallen program around.
After years of dominating the college football landscape, the Gators haven’t sniffed the success that Urban Meyer produced with Tim Tebow under center. Now with the Gators in the throws of spring practices, might McElwain have found his Tim Tebow?
Going to go ahead and say probably not. But that doesn’t mean that Feleipe Franks can’t be the quarterback capable of paving the road back to regular national dominance for the Gators.
According to the Gainesville Sun, Franks has been creating some separation between himself and the other quarterbacks on the depth chart.
“We should know a lot (coming out of the spring). I think it’s starting to sort itself out,” McElwain said. “The natural question is, ‘Well, what’s sorting itself out?’ You’ll find out.”
Asked directly if there was now some separation in the quarterback competition between Franks and Kyle Trask, McElwain responded: “Yes. We’re doing good”.
More competition could be on the way, though. Luke del Rio is yet to return from his shoulder injury, and there has been some interest in Notre Dame transfer Malik Zaire joining the Gators quarterback depth chart.
