Junior Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel has been released from his scholarship according to ESPN.
New Gators coach Jim McElwain confirmed before Saturday's game that Driskel has asked for and received a release from his scholarship.
"That's up to him," McElwain said on Driskel's possible return. "We all have choices, and I'm not going to hold him hostage."
Driskel, a junior, graduated over the summer, making him free to play right away wherever he chooses to go.
