The release of the Florida Gators’ depth chart ahead of their season opener against Idaho answered a number of questions regarding the team’s fall camp position battles.

Arguably, the most intriguing battle in Gators camp wasn’t even for a starting spot. The backup quarterback position was very much a spot that was up for grabs with true freshmen Treon Harris and Will Grier emerging as the front runners for the No. 2 slot.

Head coach Will Muschamp announced in his press conference earlier today that Harris will be the team’s primary backup for the Idaho game.

“Will and Treon are both very talented players,” Muschamp explained. “I felt like Harris could provide us some things in short-yardage and red-zone situations. We’re going to run our offense and Treon has a good command of what we do.”

Although this move would have been surprising back in the spring, as fall camp went on, momentum was swinging Harris’ way. Observers inside Gators’ camp raved about Harris’ performances in fall camp and that once he got adjusted in the first week of practice, he really came into his own.

His dual-threat ability will give the Gators a new wrinkle to their offense. Harris is smaller – standing in at 5-foot-11, 190-pounds, but the Miami, Fla. native is a proven winner. He led Booker T. Washington to two consecutive state championships and was an Army All-American.

Harris could see the field as soon as the second quarter, according to Muschamp.

“We’d like to play him in the second quarter,” Muschamp said, “but that’ll be dependent on the game situation

Despite the decision on the backup quarterback, the situation behind Harris is still very fluid. Grier, who has more of a prototypical height for a quarterback at 6-foot-2, was expected to redshirt if not chosen as the backup. Muschamp, however, said no decision has been made on a redshirt.

“No decision has been made about redshirting Grier or [Skyler] Mornihinweg. It will be a week-to-week decision,” said Muschamp. “I’d like to redshirt one of the quarterbacks, but no decision has been made.”

Muschamp added there’s a possibility of Grier seeing the field some this weekend, but that he’s “on the bubble” to play.
