Welcome to Chomp Chat, SEC Country’s daily Florida podcast with reporter Zach Abolverdi and Gators broadcaster Jeff Cardozo.
Emory Jones is one of three Florida quarterbacks in the mix for playing time this fall.
After his showing in the spring game and the struggles of Feleipe Franks last season, many fans want to see Jones play in some capacity as a freshman.
Gators beat writer Ryan Young of SEC Country met with Jones’ high school coach and offensive coordinator for some feature stories on Florida’s new quarterback.
In the latest edition of Chomp Chat, we discuss how first-year Florida coach Dan Mullen won’t force the issue with Jones and will use him based on his readiness.
Here are the topics on the show Monday:
- There are a lot of variables to consider with Franks, Jones and Kyle Trask, but Mullen has navigated various quarterback competitions throughout his coaching career and will make the right call behind center in 2018.
- The nation’s No. 1 running back recruit, Trey Sanders, has a few family factors in his recruitment that are favorable for Florida. The 5-star back discussed those dynamics and his interest in the Gators with SEC Country.
- Auburn landed Florida tight end target Tyler Fromm over the weekend. However, the Gators still have multiple targets remaining at the position, which is a need in their 2019 class.
- Cardozo discusses Florida’s series win at Texas A&M with Gators baseball coach Kevin O’Sullivan.
