As if losing head coach James Franklin to Penn State two years ago wasn’t enough for the Vanderbilt football team. Things have just gotten worse for the Commodores as they have been informed that QB/wide receiver Josh Grady will taking his talents to Gainesville.
According to College Football Talk, the 2011 three star Vanderbilt commit confirmed the rumors Friday evening and, because of the graduation transfer exception, will be eligible to play in the fall.
Grady played both quarterback and wide receiver for the Commodores, so after the dismal season Jeff Driskel had in 2014, the Gators will certainly welcome him with open arms. Paired with Luke Del Rio, Grady will add much needed depth to the Gators wide receiver position while adding an interesting dynamic under center.
Vanderbilt apparently approved the transfer, which is a surprising move since Grady’s new home is a SEC East division rival. Maybe this is all a part of Vandy’s grand plan to take over the SEC this season. Then again, probably not.
