Florida over the last two seasons has struggled to achieve what head coach Billy Napier has called the ideal scholarship number at quarterback (four).

The Gators carried three scholarship quarterbacks, Mertz, redshirt freshman Max Brown and sophomore Jack Miller, in 2023 but Brown and Miller entered the transfer portal and retired from football, respectively, leaving the program with just two scholarship players, including Lagway, on its roster.

It remains unclear if Florida intends to add a fourth scholarship quarterback before the 2024 season, though it should be noted that the team added a preferred walk-on, Yale transfer Aidan Warner, this offseason and also returns walk-on Parker Leise, who spent the 2023 season in Gainesville and at times even traveled with the team while Miller did not.

Millen is the ninth scholarship transfer to pledge to the Gators this offseason, joining former Wisconsin wideout Chimere Dike, former San Diego State offensive tackle Brandon Crenshaw-Dickson, former Penn defensive lineman Joey Slackman, former Oregon defensive back Trikweze Bridges, former South Carolina linebacker Grayson Howard, former Northern Illinois defensive end George Gumbs, former Arkansas offensive tackle Devon Manuel and former Tulane safety DJ Douglas.
