Gators next quarterback



driskel.jpgThis season hasn't gone quite the way the Gators hoped it would. If they're not careful, they could end up playing in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. You knew there could be a drop with the graduation of Tim Tebow, but no one thought the Gators would lose three games before Halloween, especially with John Brantley starting at quarterback. But either Brantley isn't as good as we thought or coach Urban Meyer hasn't figured out how to best utilize Brantley's talent and style. So, surely, Gators fans are already looking to the future and the future might be Jeff Driskel, one of the top high school quarterbacks in the country who has committed to Florida. Driskel, who plays Hagerty High in Oviedo outside of Orlando, says he runs like Tim Tebow (he runs 4.55 40) but plays like Aaron Rodgers.
