Florida Gators' QB Max Staver to transfer


On Thursday afternoon, Florida Gators’ head coach Will Muschamp announced five players -Sophomore tight end Kent Taylor, redshirt freshmen fullback Rhaheim Ledbetter and offensive linemen Quinteze Williams and Trevon Young and junior offensive lineman Ian Silberman – would be transferring.

It’s no coincidence that all five players are on the offensive side of the ball. Florida’s offense was a disaster they responded by firing offensive coordinator Brent Pease and offensive line coach Tim Davis.

The blow seemed to be softened by the news that a highly touted offensive lineman, David Sharpe, committed to the Gators on Thursday.

Now, the Gators have learned that freshman quarterback Max Staver also plans to transfer.

Staver, 6’6,  was considered a three-star prospect. He redshirted behind junior Jeff Driskel, redshirt junior Tyler Murphy and redshirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg this season.

“I had a great experience at the University of Florida,” Staver told Jeff Barlis of, “and I have made many great friendships and relationships this year. They have great people down there. I will miss them and the Gator Nation and its fans.”
