Florida Football: Malik Zaire Leaning Towards Gators


It’s become the soap opera of the college football offseason. Malik Zaire, the physically gifted Notre Dame quarterback continues to look or a landing spot to continue his college football career.

It is believed to have come down to two schools, Texas or Florida.

Recent reports indicate that Zaire is likely leaning towards Florida.

The issue standing in Zaire’s way is a graduate transfer rule. After Florida accepted two graduate transfer students who subsequently failed to qualify academically, UF isn’t allowed to add a graduate transfer until after the 2018 season.

The rule is on the agenda of things that are going to be discussed at the conference annual spring meeting.

The results of their decision appear as if they will ultimately decide the Zaire’s destination. He is transferring mainly for increased opportunity on the field. As the season draws closer to starting, Zaire has less time to learn a new offense, and could face increased obstacles on his way to the top of the depth chart.

He possess explosive ability, but if he is unable to transfer to Florida, his chances of starting in 2017 diminish greatly.
