Former University of Central Florida quarterback Dillon Gabriel now says he will continue his career at Oklahoma, according to College Football insider Brett McMurphy.

A couple of weeks ago Gabriel said he was going to play at UCLA.

Gabriel entered the transferred portal this past November. DG only played in three games for UCF this season due to a collarbone injury.

Gabriel’s numbers in 26 games over three years were incredible while he was under center at UCF. He threw for 8,041 yards, 70 touchdowns and 14 picks. DG also rushed for 372 yards and eight touchdowns.

Mikey Keene took over at quarterback for UCF once Gabriel went down with the collarbone injury.

In 10 games the freshman quarterback threw for 1,586 yards, 16 touchdowns and six interceptions.
