Former Florida Quarterback Will Grier Transferring to West Virginia

Will Grier has finally picked a school. The former Florida Gator quarterback will be transferring to West Virginia.

Grier threw for 1,204 yards and 10 touchdowns with just three interceptions in six games with the Gators last season. He was suspended for one year in October after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance. Grier decided to transfer from the Gators in December.

Due to NCAA transfer rules, Grier will have to sit out the entire 2016 season. He may also have to sit out the first six games of the 2017 season due to his suspension.

Whenever Grier does return in 2017, he has a good shot of taking over at quarterback for the Mountaineers. Mountaineers starting quarterback Skyler Howard will be graduating after the 2016 season, and Grier figures to compete with William Crest, Jr., who will be a redshirt junior in 2017. Crest played in 11 games during the 2015 season and threw for 124 yards.

Grier is set to enroll at West Virginia in May.
