GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida is signing the last of its early enrollees to written offers this week.

Trask committed to the Gators in July after throwing for McElwain and offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier at Friday Night Lights and a summer camp session. Nussmeier evaluated Trask twice in the spring as well.
The 6-foot-5, 210-pounder is not highly rated because he’s the backup on his high school team, which runs a spread-option offense and has dual-threat quarterback D’Eriq King as its starter. King, also a 2016 recruit committed to TCU, is rated a 4-star in the 247Sports Composite.
Trask elected not to leave his school because the transfer rules in Texas would have required him to sit out a year. He will compete in the spring with Treon Harris, transfer Luke Del Rio and fellow incoming freshman Feleipe Franks.
