Gators 2014 recruit tracker: QBs

9/5/2012

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- As we get closer to spotlighting the class of 2014, GatorNation gives you a position-by-position look at a few 2014 prospects to keep an eye on.

Some prospects have already been offered, but there are plenty of names that will start to pop up along the way. Here is a look at a few of the quarterbacks in the class.

Needs -- 1

Offers

Will Grier (Davidson, N.C./Davidson Day) -- With early offers from Florida, Tennessee, Wake Forest, North Carolina and East Carolina, Grier will likely be one of the top signal-callers in the southeast next year. The talented quarterback camped at Florida over the summer and impressed the Florida staff. Grier is likely the top QB on Florida's 2014 board and the Gators are in good shape to land the athletic quarterback prospect.

Wade Freebeck (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla./Western) -- If Grier is the No. 1 quarterback prospect on Florida's board, Freebeck isn't far behind. Like Grier, Freebeck camped at Florida over the summer and earned a Florida offer with his performance. Freebeck completed 22-of-41 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns on Friday night. The Gators are in good position for Freebeck, especially since they are the only school to offer him.

Names to watch

D.J. Gillins (Jacksonville, Fla./Eagles View) -- Gillins will be one of the top quarterback prospects in Florida next year. The dual-threat quarterback has early offers from West Virginia, Vanderbilt, Texas Tech and UNC.

DeShaun Watson (Gainesville, Ga./Gainesville -- committed to Clemson) -- Despite his commitment to Clemson, the Gators will continue to pursue Watson. The talented athlete has offers from Auburn, Florida State, Georgia Tech and Ohio State.

Chase Litton (Tampa, Fla./Wharton) -- Litton's high school teammate Vernon Hargreaves III, a 2013 prospect, has committed to play cornerback for the Gators. Litton has an early offer from LSU.

Jacob Park (Goose Creek, S.C./Stratford) -- The 6-foot-4, 201-pound quarterback has an early offer from Auburn.

Jason Driskel (Oviedo, Fla./Hagerty) -- Jason, the brother of starting Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel, impressed Florida at camp this summer. Driskel has not earned an offer yet from the Gators, but with a strong junior season, that offer could come. At 6-2, he's not as tall as his older brother but has similar arm strength.
