It appears that Malik Zaire is officially a Florida Gator.
On June 4th, Zaire made his intentions to enroll at Florida known to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports while at the Elite 11 workout in Oregon, but had to find a graduate level academic program that he was eligible to enroll into.
According to Bonus Sports, Zaire is officially a Gator. The following tweet was pinned to the @BonusSports Twitter page, and retweeted by Zaire.

Zaire’s own Twitter page now adorns the Gators logo as the cover photo (seen above).
Zaire is expected to compete with redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks and junior Luke Del Rio for the starting position this fall. A successful season by Zaire, a dual-threat QB, could help the recruiting process of five-star, dual-threat QB Justin Fields. SECCountry.com reported that Fields and Zaire talked about Florida during the Elite 11 competition.
