In one of National Signing Day's biggest twists, Miami-area quarterback Treon Harris decommitted from defending national champion FSU on and committed to the downtrodden University of Florida. Florida Gators, which are mired in turmoil and uncertainty surrounding their quarterback situation and the security of head coach Will Muschamp, seems like an odd choice. Especially because Will Grier, another top 50 quarterback is already an essential piece of Florida's recruiting haul.
The 5-11, 186 pound brother of ex-Hurricane cornerback Brandon Harris is considered an athletic and confident quarterback who has compared himself to a mix of Jameis Winston and Nick Marshall. He has led Miami powerhouse Booker T. Washington to three consecutive state championship games. In his senior season Harris threw for 2,159 yards, 28 touchdowns and just four interceptions while also running for gaining 575 yards.
At FSU, he would have dealt with redshirting while Jameis Winston played out his sophomore season before presumably entering the 2015 NFL Draft as a redshirt sophomore. At Florida, if the competition with Grier doesn't swing his way he could find himself on the bench for a few years or lost in the wilderness if a new coaching staff replaces the Muschamp regime after next season.
