Extra Point: New Name On Gators’ QB Board

Gators offensive coordinator expected to meet with Gilmer (TX) qb McLane Carter.

It’s hard to believe a high school quarterback could throw for over three thousand yards his senior year and and yet fly so low under the radar that he has no college scholarship offers two weeks before national signing day.

That’s the position Gilmer (TX) qb McLane Carter (6-2 190) finds himself in after throwing for 3,969 yards with 47 touchdowns and only two interceptions last season.

Here’s what he told Scout recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks back in December:

” I haven’t really (heard anything lately), to be honest. I’ve had some people on the hook a little bit in the middle of the season, but I haven’t heard much. But I’m not worried about it. I’m stepping out here and I’m playing football, letting the rest take care of itself.”

Perhaps because he transferred back to Gilmer from Salado where he played his junior season, but whatever the reason, it appears he has come to the attention of the Gators coaching staff.

Reportedly, offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier is expected to meet with him sometime in the next few days.

It’s no secret the Gators are in need of a quarterback in this class and he is likely a fall back if they are unable to flip the top two guys on the board Deondre Francois, who is committed to Florida State and visiting this weekend, and Lamar Jackson, who is committed to Louisville (UF is #2) and visiting on the 30th.
