After losing the pledge of quarterback Nick Evers, who ultimately signed with Oklahoma in December during the coaching change, Florida no longer has a quarterback commit in its 2022 recruiting class. Though the Gators added a transfer from Ohio State in Jack Miller, a former four-star recruit who served as the backup to Heisman finalist C.J. Stroud in 2021, they would likely still prefer to add another signal-caller out of high school.
The top target at the moment seems to be Tulsa (OK) Lincoln Christian School dual-threat quarterback Max Brown, a Central Michigan commit. Brown pledged to the Chippewas back in July, but he chose not to sign during the early signing period in December.
With many of Florida’s coaches in the state of Texas visiting prospects this week, a group of them took a small trip to the north to visit with Brown, including head coach Billy Napier as well as offensive analyst Ryan O’Hara (the de facto quarterback coach) and tight ends coach William Peagler. Brown told 247Sports’ Blake Alderman that O’Hara has been his primary recruiter.
Brown is scheduled to visit Florida this coming weekend, though he does have a trip planned to Seattle to visit Washington the following weekend. The No. 1718 player in the country and No. 109 quarterback, Brown’s stock is rising and the Gators could be in a good position to land him.
