Josh Grady may be leaving Vanderbilt, but he’s not ditching the SEC East.
Following reports that had surfaced throughout the day, Florida confirmed Friday evening that Grady will be transferring into the Florida football program and use his final season of eligibility with the Gators. Grady is one of myriad players using the graduate transfer exception this offseason, meaning he’ll be eligible to play in 2015.
Grady played both quarterback and wide receiver during his time with the Commodores, so he will, along with Luke Del Rio at some point in the summer, add some much-needed depth at the former position. And, apparently, his former school signed off on the move even as he remains in the same division, which may say more about the player than the school.
Grady came to Vandy as a three-star member of their 2011 recruiting class, taking a redshirt his true freshman season.
The past three years, he’s attempted just seven passes, completing three for 27 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. He also caught seven passes for 89 yards and totaled 20 yards rushing on 11 carries.
