GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida’s starting quarterback remains a mystery heading into the team’s Southeastern Conference opener.

Coach Jim McElwain said Wednesday he hasn’t settled on a starter for Saturday’s game at Kentucky. Sophomore Treon Harris and redshirt freshman Will Grier split snaps during the first two games, with each getting a start.

Harris has completed 19 of 27 passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns. Grier has completed 26 of 35 for 317 yards and four scores. Grier also has an interception and a fumble.

McElwain says he doesn’t have a timeline for picking one, either. "The team has settled into it," he said. "Here’s the good thing: both guys are really studying the game plan. … That mindset is you prepare yourself as a starter because you’re going to get a ton of reps."
