Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson left the door open up to possibly transferring, so where could the present Gators young stud take his talents?
Anthony Richardson has actually been the apple of the eye for fans in Gainesville throughout the 2021 season as lots of Florida football fans have assumed that hes a better choice at quarterback than Emory Jones. And on Saturday in a game in which the Gators defense stopped working to appear, Richardson tried his best to play the hero.
Sadly, his efforts fell brief and it appears that the quarterback controversy in between him and Jones may continue. Florida fans possibly got even worse news after the game.
Following the loss, Richardson was inquired about the possibility that he could transfer. And he definitely didnt shut it down, just stating that hes still a Gator “in the meantime”:
Lets get the transfer rumor mill swirling and look at where Anthony Richardson and his prodigious dual-threat talent might land if he enters the website, particularly looking at groups that offered him in recruiting.

5. Georgia Bulldogs
Depending upon how spiteful Anthony Richardson would wish to be, absolutely nothing would anger Gators fans more than heading to Athens. And it so occurs that Georgia used the quarterback in the 2020 recruiting cycle.
The Bulldogs are potentially going to have a vacancy at quarterback after this season. Assuming he can get healthy (and perhaps even if he does not), JT Daniels could be gone after this season. And Kirby Smart would love to update from Stetson Bennett.
Georgia does have 5-star 2021 recruit Brock Vandagriff in tow however, if they wish to adopt a more respected athlete and a gamer with experience, then Richardson would still make good sense for them at the end of the day.
Anthony Richardson inquired about fans stressing that he might leave or move: “I cant really speak on that. Time is the only thing that tells. Today Im a Gator.”

4. UCF Knights
Dillon Gabriel looked fine running the Gus Malzahn offense prior to his injury but, based upon the history of the previous Auburn head coach, we understand that he enjoys big-bodied dual-threat quarterbacks for his offense. And if thats what were discussing, it d be harder to discover a better fit for the Malzahn offense than Richardson.
Now, Gabriel could be back next season, so that does suggest that Richardson might find himself in a quarterback battle as soon as again. The given how well the existing Gators would fit in the head coachs offense, its not improbable to think that Malzahn could potentially encourage Gabriel to transfer out of UCF and allow Richardson a clear runway to take over and let the still-fresh head coach leave his imprint early on the program.
Anthony Richardson asked about fans worrying that he may leave or move: “I cant really speak on that. Now Im a Gator.”
The Bulldogs are potentially going to have a job at quarterback after this season. Presuming he can get healthy (and perhaps even if he doesnt), JT Daniels could be gone after this season. And Kirby Smart would enjoy to update from Stetson Bennett.
