It has been reported by the Raleigh News Observer that Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel could be taking his talents (or lack there of) to Durham, to play at Duke University .
The redshirt junior will have a year of eligibility left to finish his football career. If he does choose to make the move up north he would be able to step in and play immediately.

Driskel’s tenure in Gainesville has been filled with ups and downs. He came to Florida as a blue chip consensus #1 pocket passing qb. In 2012 he led the Gators to a 11-1 regular season record. That season he broke Tim Tebow’s single game rushing yards by a quarterback in a victory over Vanderbilt. His 2013 season was ended early by a broken leg, and 2014 was filled with turnovers and inconsistent play which led to him being benched in favor of true freshman Treon Harris.
Duke would be a perfect fit for Driskel. Head coach David Cutcliff has a great reputation for molding quarterbacks. The Blue Devils will be losing senior quarterback Anthony Boone. Sophomore Thomas Sirk and freshman Parker Boehme both have limited experience.
