Sheriron Jones is heading to Oregon.
No, the Gators haven’t missed out on another quarterback.
The four-star prospect was invited to the Elite 11 on Monday. The prestigious competition takes place during ‘The Opening’ combine in early July at the Nike headquarters in Beaverton, Ore.
Former NFL player Trent Dilfer and a group of coaches select 18 of the top high school quarterbacks in the nation for the event. UF freshman Will Grier competed in it last summer and finished No. 3 in the final rankings.
Jones could the next future Gator with Elite 11 credentials. The 6-foot-2, 189-pounder from Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde will camp Saturday at Florida, the school most consider his favorite at this time.
Two quarterbacks who visited UF during the spring and committed elsewhere (Kelly Bryant and Dwayne Lawson) were not considered for the Elite 11. Torrance Gibson, a five-star quarterback/athlete who eliminated the Gators last week, has yet to be invited with three spots remaining.
