The Florida Gators, to get back to anywhere near where they were in 2012 when they were in serious contention for an SEC title, need to improve mightily, especially at the quarterback position. Even with the injuries aside, they weren’t performing at a high level when starter Jeff Driskel was in the game.

Some believe that they’re headed in the right direction in fixing this with one of the nation’s top signal calling prospects coming in this January, Will Grier.

However, just to be safe, Will Muschamp and staff are now looking to possibly add another name to the fold to give themselves another option under center.

According to 247 Sports, the Gators are now taking a look at dual-threat prospect Quinton Flowers out of Miami. Flowers, a three-star rated player, said that Florida approached him with an offer about two weeks ago:

“(Florida assistant) Travaris Robinson came in two weeks ago and offered me,” Flowers told 247Sports Friday morning. “It was amazing. That’s big I have that now. I’m fired up about that. It really caught me by surprise. That’s the first time I’ve heard from them. They have a good tradition there with their fans, school and the academic part.”

Flowers is currently committed to South Florida, but this offer from the Gators could change some things.

    That picture looks a heck of a lot like a Tebow throwing motion … Arm and elbow flying way out to the side. Hope for this kid’s sake he fixes that early on.

      that may be true… .but as I recall… the “tebow throwing motion” equaled back to back championships for the gators

      • Branden Welford

        Actually no. It equaled one in 08. The other was won in 06, with Chris Leak as the starting QB.

          you are right…. I stand corrected…. my bad…. I blurred the line between football and basketball………..

    It isn’t going to help much with Muschamp as head football coach. Will Muschamp has to go. https://www.facebook.com/GoAwayWill
