Florida quarterback announces that he's entering the transfer portal
Florida is losing some depth at quarterback, as Carlos Del Rio-Wilson, a redshirt freshman, announced on Tuesday that he would enter the transfer portal.
It became clear after spring practice that Del Rio-Wilson was the third quarterback for the Gators. Anthony Richardson and sophomore backup Jack Miller were clearly ahead of him on the depth chart. Del Rio-Wilson saw limited action near the end of the spring game.
“First of all I would like to thank all of gator nation/gator family for welcoming me in since the beginning you are probably the best Fanbase in the world I will always had love for you guys,” Del Rio-Wilson wrote in a tweet announcing his intent to transfer. “I would also like to thank all the coaches for giving me the opportunity and an incredible experience. But after long discussion with my family we feel it’s best that I enter the transfer portal at this time. Thank you for everything gator family!! Go gators!”
Along with Richardson and Miller, redshirt freshman Jalen Kitna and freshman Max Brown are the other quarterbacks expected to be on the roster this fall.
