Will Grier Gators
DAVIDSON, N.C. -

Junior quarterback Will Grier, who threw for a national record 837 yards and had 10 TD passes in a 104-80 North Carolina state playoff win last month, will be a Florida Gator.
   
Chad Grier, Will's father and Davidson Day football coach, said Wednesday his son "feels so strong about it that he is ready to commit now so he can focus on his schoolwork, improving his game and helping his team prepare for a third consecutive state championship."
   
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound QB trimmed his choice to five schools before choosing the Gators over North Carolina, Tennessee, North Carolina State and Oregon.
   
A 2012 AP All-State selection, Grier threw for 3,785 yards and 49 touchdowns with 12 interceptions this season. He also carried 97 times for 925 yards and 11 TDs.
