The Gators got a quarterback. But are they shooting high enough?
Often, the University of Florida pursues Parade All-Americans, or five-star prospects. Usually, they try to pick a guy out of the most prestigious college camps. They outrecruit LSU and Alabama and Georgia for his services.
This time, they got a commitment from Kyle Trask. He’s the second bast quarterback on his high school team.
Trask, from Manvel High School near Houston, Texas, pledged to the Gators after attending a football camp in Gainesville. He is a two-star prospect whose previoius offers came from Houston Baptist, McNeese State and Lamar, all FCS schools. At Manvel, he backs up D’Eriq King, who has committed to TCU.
OK, granted, head coach Jim McElwain and his staff know what they’re doing, and they have seen Trask up close, and the kid is 6-5.
But Houston Baptist?
