Add another name to the quarterback derby of the University of Florida Gators.
The Gators landed Jake Allen, who will join Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask as coach Jim McElwain continues to search for just the right quarterback. Allen, of course, will be a year behind in the derby and might need time to adjust, but he has potential. He was the 23rd ranked pro-style quarterback.
Florida moved up to No. 18 in 247sports.com’s rankings.
The Gators boosted their class Thursday when Virginia defensive tackle Elijah Conliffe announced he was going to join Florida. He is the third defensive tackle to sign with Florida, joining juco transfer Javier Edwards out of Blinn (Texas) Community College and Kyree Campbell, another Virginia product from Woodbridge.
