2014 QB Will Grier talks The Opening and Florida

The Gator commit talked with SB Nation Recruiting about why he chose the Gators, as well as how he's doing some recruiting himself.

Wescott Eberts, SB Nation

Will Grier had a monster year on the field, putting up huge numbers: 5,785 yards passing with 69 TDs and another 813 yards rushing with eight scores on the ground, albeit against very questionable competition. Grier is a consensus four-star recruit, and is widely considered one of the five best pocket-passer prospects nationally. A MaxPreps Junior All-American and All-State honoree, the 6'3, 180-pound Davidson (N.C.) Day standout was also the Quarterback MVP at the Charlotte NFTC. He committed to Florida in February over offers from Florida State, North Carolina, Oregon and Tennessee, among others.

Grier said he chose Florida for the chance to get a high quality degree, and that he believes in the school and the vision for the program. He's also trying to get other recruits to come down to Florida to play for the Gators with him.
