Florida Gator Spring Preview: Quarterback Edition.

The last days of February are ahead of us and it only means one thing as a college football fan, spring football! Yes, spring football is back and the Gators have already started their spring conditioning. The Gators enter the spring with holes to fill. With that being said, the QB position seems to be all locked up with RS Junior Feleipe Franks looking to capitalize off his impressive 2018 season. Even though Franks is the definite starter, how does the depth look? Let’s take a look. 

Emory Jones – Redshirt Freshman 

The talented Georgia native came into last season wet behind the ears. Emory wasn’t accustomed to the offense, but he still found meaningful playing time. Majority of his snaps came against Idaho and he looked extremely impressive. This season Emory will be prepared as the backup, due to his true dual-threat ability Mullen will be able to use him effectively in the playbook.

Kyle Trask – Redshirt Junior 

Trask is coming off a season-ending foot injury he suffered during preparation for the South Carolina game. Trask won’t be the starter going into spring, but he could solidify himself as the number two option. However, with the potential of Emory taking those reigns Trask might want out. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Trask explore other options when spring concludes.

Jalon Jones – Freshman

The talented freshman is the definite wildcard out the bunch. Jalon is an early enrollee which gives him the opportunity to compete all spring and play in the spring game. Jalon is unquestionably talented, but going off on how Mullen manages his QB’s Jalon could see a Redshirt.
