UF offers Mississippi QB Ryan Buchanan

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease had a chance to watch Jackson (Miss.) Prep quarterback Ryan Buchanan throw to some of his high school teammates Tuesday afternoon. Pease came away impressed with the 6-foot-3, 203-pound signal-caller -- enough so that he extended an offer to the talented quarterback prospect.

"The offer means a lot," Buchanan said. "To get offered by the Florida Gators I feel like is something very special, no doubt. Coach Pease is a cool guy and had a good track record from Boise State. I think he is a really good quarterback coach."

With offers now from Florida, Auburn, Arkansas and Oklahoma State, Buchanan has seen his stock start to soar. Buchanan, however, said he has no favorites at this time.

Buchanan said he will likely make his college decision sometime before his senior season begins.
