GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — When tight end Jake McGee transferred to Florida this summer, coaches arranged for him to live with quarterback Jeff Driskel.
They formed an instant bond.
By the end of the season, they might be best friends.
McGee is expected to play a key role in Florida's revamped offense, a 6-foot-5, 255-pound target with the size to overmatch defensive backs, the speed to run by linebackers and the experience to be a difference-maker for Driskel and the Gators.
Driskel says McGee has "made some big plays for us. He knows what he's doing, which is really big. You can tell he's been around football a lot. He has really good ball skills and he's going to be a big help for us."
