The Florida Gators appear to be zeroing in on their top target at the quarterback position following the announcement that current starter Emory Jones would seek a transfer.
According to multiple reports, Florida’s staff offered former Ohio State signal caller Jack Miller. Miller spent the 2021 season as the third string QB behind CJ Stroud and Kyle McCord. He did play in four contests going 7-14 for 101 yards. He did not throw a touchdown pass or turn the ball over in the limited action he saw.
As a prospect, Miller was the 13th ranked prostyle QB, a 4-star prospect, in the 2020 recruiting cycle. He went to Chaparral High in Scottsdale, AZ.
In his tweet announcing the decision to enter the transfer portal, Miller stated, “I have decided to leave Ohio State and look at opportunities available to me to play the game I love.”

Barring more transfers at the position, the Gators will return Anthony Richardson, Carlos Del Rio – Wilson and Jalen Kitna. Florida has also offered several prospects that could sign in the February signing period, as well.
