Florida’s quarterback competition has become a three-man race.
Redshirt freshman Jake Allen, recruited by Jim McElwain as a pro-style quarterback, announced on Twitter that he is going to transfer to another school.
“I believe coach (Dan) Mullen is going to turn the program around and have seen the team come together,” Allen posted on his Twitter account Tuesday night. “With that said, because the offense is not the right fit for me and because I want to continue to pursue my dream to play in the NFL, I am now seeking other opportunities to play football and I am opening up my recruitment.”
Allen, a three-star prospect out of St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, saw only limited reps in UF’s two spring scrimmages. In the spring game Saturday, working with backup players, many of them walk-ons, he completed four of seven passes for only seven yards.
