Florida QB Grier decides to transfer amid PED suspension

Will Grier

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Suspended Florida quarterback Will Grier has decided to transfer.

The 19th-ranked Gators announced Grier’s decision Saturday, saying the redshirt freshman has opted to move on amid a year-long suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs.

Coach Jim McElwain says “Will came to me about exploring his options to transfer. We will support and help him in any way we can. This has been very difficult on him and obviously he is looking for a fresh start. We will always be there for him as will all Gators.”

Grier was suspended in October for a one year by the NCAA for testing positive for PEDs. Grier appealed, but the NCAA upheld the suspension.

Grier played in six games this season, starting five of them, and completed 66 percent of his passes for 1,204 yards, with 10 touchdowns and three interceptions.
