Driskel announced Thursday that he has signed with the Boston Red Sox, who selected him in the 29th round of the Major League Baseball draft last month, but said he is committed to finishing his college career with the Gators and pursing an NFL job.

Driskel says in a statement, ``After my college football career is over I want to pursue a professional career in the NFL. If I ever decide I want to play baseball, I want to play with the Boston Red Sox who drafted me in the recent draft.''

Driskel has thrown for 1,794 yards and 12 touchdowns in two seasons, one as a full-time starter. The junior from Orlando also set a single-game school record for rushing yards by a quarterback (177).
