Florida redshirt freshman QB Will Grier has gained a significant amount of weight and now stands at 215 lbs.
Grier was listed at 195 lbs during his recruitment and then at 200 lbs last season. The gators open practice on Thursday, and Grier seems to be the frontrunner for the No. 1 job. He fits what new head coach Jim McElwain has previously used at the position, although McElwain also considers mobility a positive. The biggest question for the Gators will be their offensive line.

Florida redshirt freshman QB Will Grier ended spring activities ahead of sophomore QB Treon Harris, according to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson.

The beat writer expects the competition to last through August. Harris started the final six games of 2014 with very mixed results. He missed part of offseason activities due to a family situation, and new head coach Jim McElwain pointed to this absence as a reason of Grier's No. 1 QB standing. We think it might be related to McElwain's offensive mentality. The former CSU head coach bases his offense around simple progressions, and Grier seems to fit that mold more than Harris.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Florida offensive coordinator Kurt Roper said Florida freshman QB Will Grier "is ready to step in if needed, but UF had hoped to redshirt the high-profile recruit."

The suspension of freshman Treon Harris for alleged sexual battery could put the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Grier in line to play, if starter Jeff Driskel is injured. Even though Harris has now been reinstated, the Gators have chose to have Harris sit out this Saturday's game. Florida will also have redshirt sophomore Skyler Mornhinweg as another available option.

Parade Magazine announced that Florida commit QB Will Grier has won its Player of the Year award.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder has spent the past few years shredding North Carolina prep football, throwing for 195 touchdowns -- including 77 his senior year -- and 14,559 passing yards (383 yards per game). He led his team to three consecutive state championships. Grier enrolled early at Florida and is on campus as we speak. Jeff Driskel is going to have a fight on his hands to keep Grier off the field in his first year.
