Florida Gators QB Jeff Driskel will play his final year of eligibility with the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs after making the decision to transfer.
Driskel led Florida to a 28-20 victory over East Carolina in the Birmingham Bowl on Saturday but was released from his UF scholarship before the game, according to ESPN.
Driskel threw for 1,140 yards, nine TDs and 10 interceptions on the season, but has battled injuries throughout his 4-year career for the Gators. In 2011 he played in only five games and in 2013 he played in only three games. But in 2012 he went 10-2 as a starter, losing in the Sugar Bowl to Louisville.
Driskel, who was rated among the nation’s top quarterback prospects out of high school in 2011, joins a Louisiana Tech team coached by Skip Holtz that finished 2014 with a 9-5 record.
The Bulldogs lost in the C-USA Championship game to Marshall, but won 35-18 in the Heart of Dallas Bowl against the Illinois Illini.
