If football doesn't work for Jeff Driskel, the Florida signal-caller has a solid Plan B. Driskel was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 29th round of the MLB Draft and signed with the team this week.
Driskel is still eligible to play for Florida this season, marking his second year as the Gators' No. 1 signal-caller.
Considering the personnel losses Florida suffered on defense, the Gators need Driskel to show improvement for the team to match its win total for 2013. However, the quarterback also needs help from a struggling receiving corps and revamped offensive line.
Here's what Driskel had about his Red Sox contract on Twitter this week:
Yes I signed with the Red Sox. Nothing changes. I am still a full time student athlete at UF, fully committed to playing football. #GoGators— Jeff Driskel (@jeffdriskel) July 4, 2013
