Jim McElwain comments on possible Will Grier transfer

-

It’s a roller coaster of a day in Gainesville as Florida quarterback Will Grier is seeking a transfer out of the program, and everyone of course wants to know what Gators coach Jim McElwain has to say on the matter. McElwain has released a statement, which was reported on the football program’s official Twitter.

Grier made headlines prior to the season by beating out incumbent starter Treon Harris for the starting job under center and led the Gators to a 6-0 start, but then tested positive for a banned substance later determined to be PEDs and was suspended for one year. Florida finished strong on the back of its defense and won the SEC East, but was shellacked by Alabama in the SEC Championship Game as Harris simply was not strong enough a QB to carry the team as forward as possible.

Thus, it’s easy to see why Grier may want to start fresh elsewhere despite his transfer not being set in stone. The SEC is highly competitive and if he can’t perform at a high level when eligible to return in October, he could forever be stigmatized as the player who needed PEDs to perform well.
