Former Missouri quarterback Tyler Gabbert appears to have finally found his new home after spending 2011 playing college football musical chairs.
No promises, though.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that Gabbert will play for Central Florida, months after he visited the school. Gabbert is currently working on his degree from a community college in St. Louis after taking off the 2011 season. The quarterback could fill the hole left by sophomore Jeff Godfrey, who transferred from the Knights unexpectedly last month.
The Sentinel reports Gabbert would have three years of eligibility remaining.
Gabbert was in a quarterback battle with James Franklin last spring as Mizzou looked for a replacement for Tyler’s older brother, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Although it appeared for a while as though Gabbert might have the upper hand in the competition, Franklin eventually won the starting job.
