Was told Malik Zaire may announce his decision on May 19, before SEC meetings. That could eliminate UF, leaving Texas, Wisconsin & Harvard— Anwar Richardson (@AnwarRichardson) May 5, 2017
According to SEC Country
Two previous graduate transfers to land at Florida — OT Mason Halter and LB Anthony Harrell — didn’t meet academic requirements during their time in Gainesville. As a result, the SEC rule restricted the Gators from taking any more graduate transfers for three years, starting in 2016.
However, if the league amends the restriction to one year, Zaire could be free to enroll at Florida and compete for the starting quarterback job this fall.
SEC spring meetings, which take place in Destin, Florida, typically occur in late May/early June. If Zaire wants to keep Florida as an option, May 19 will be too early to make that decision.
