According to reports, including one from Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports, redshirt freshman Florida quarterback and former starter Will Grier has met with the Gator staff and will be transferring.

To say that this season has been a disappointment for Grier, well, that would be an understatement.
He started the first six games of the season for Florida and led the Gators to an undefeated start. He had four multiple touchdown games—including a four touchdown, no interception performance in a 38-10 win over then No. 3 Ole Miss—and threw for 1,204 yards and 10 touchdowns compared to just three interceptions to start the season for the Gators.
Sophomore quarterback Treon Harris took over for Grier once his suspension was announced, and he helped lead the Gators to the SEC East title. Unfortunately for Florida, the team did not finish the season strong, as Jim McElwain’s group lost to Florida State 27-2 in the final game of the season, and then lost to Alabama, 29-15 in the SEC Championship.
Harris threw for a combined 299 yards, one touchdown and one interception in both games, the pick coming against the Crimson Tide.
Florida, ranked No. 19 in the latest CFP Poll, will play No. 14 Michigan in the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl on New Years Day
