GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida Gators quarterback D.J. Lagway has signed with The Network Advisory and Legacy Sports Advisors to represent him in NIL negotiations. Pete Nakos was the first to report the news. Lagway was the No. 1 ranked quarterback in the country and has an On3 NIL Valuation of $859,000.

“I’m excited to have The Network Advisory and Legacy with me on this journey,” Lagway told Nakos. “It feels like I am becoming a part of a new family, a family that cares about my success both on and off the field. With Justin and Deiric’s guidance and support, I’m eager to bring Florida back to its rightful glory.”

Lagway will be working directly with Network Advisory’s Justin J. Giangrande and Legacy’s Deiric Jackson. Both agents have a history of working with Florida quarterbacks. An alum of Florida, Giangrande previously worked closely with Tim Tebow during his time in Gainesville. Jackson, a Gainesville resident, represents former Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson. His relationship with Richardson began at Florida and continues to this day.

Lagway enrolled at Florida.

On3 National Scout Cody Bellaire on DJ Lagway

National scout for On3 Cody Bellaire recently spoke with Gators Online’s Keith Niebuhr on the Gators Online Recruiting Show.

“The thing that was so impressive about him, even back then was the human being,” Bellaire told Gators Online. “As a 15, 16-year-old kid, you were like, ‘Whoa, this cat is sharp, he knows ball, he’s courteous, he’s polite, he shook everybody’s hand, he got everybody’s name.’ And I remember after the game, all the personel and recruiting (people) went back in the office. And you know, there’s 50 other kids on campus that you’ve been talking to all day. And we got back and sat down in our office and were like, ‘Hey, that sophomore from Willis (Texas) was pretty damn impressive.’ And I think that’s part of the story that people take for granted.”

As a prospect, Bellaire said he saw tremendous growth and development from DJ Lagway from his junior to senior season, and that’s why he shot up in the rankings. Also, he said that was a credit to Florida’s early evaluation of him.

“He was a 67 percent completion guy as a junior, which is great don’t get me wrong,” Bellaire said. “But he even upped his game and got it to 72 percent as a senior. And I think part of that is cleaning up the motion and with that delivering more catchable balls. He’s made some unbelievable strides in his game throughout his high school career and I think the sky’s the limit for him at the next level.”
