Matt Corral's father questions Florida's commitment to his son
The Florida Gators are now searching for a new quarterback for their 2018 class after 4-star QB Matt Corral flipped his commitment to Ole Miss on Thursday night.
The move took many by surprise, but on Friday, Corral’s father, Peter Corral, weighed in on his son’s decision.
As you can see below, Corral said his son was always 100 percent committed to the Gators, but then added that perhaps the Gators weren’t fully committed to Matt:
Matt was always 100% commited to the Gators. Unfortunately, they weren’t commited to him.

Considering new Florida coach has always had success with dual-threat quarterbacks (Nick Fitzgerald, Tim Tebow, Dak Prescott and Alex Smith come to mind), it’s fair to wonder whether Mullen would have had a place for the pro-style Corral.
Now, though, the Rebels have a key piece for their 2018 class, while the Gators are searching for a new quarterback.
Mullen may try to find a dual-threat option, but it’ll be interesting to see if he can find one on such short notice.
