Florida QB Jalen Kitna arrested Wednesday, per report


According to Sports Illustrated's Zach Goodall, redshirt freshman QB Jalen Kitna was arrested Wednesday afternoon.

Goodall reports that Kitna was booked into the Alachua County Jail at 3:20 p.m. EST on Wednesday morning. Charges for Kitna's arrest were not immediately made available.

Kitna is the son of former NFL quarterback Jon Kitna and arrived in Gainesville as a part of the 2021 recruiting class. He did not appear in any games in 2021, electing to take a redshirt season. In 2022, he became the backup to starter Anthony Richardson after a thumb injury to Jack Miller took him out for most of training camp and the beginning of the season.

He made four appearances for the Gators in 2022, putting threw one touchdown, and had 181 passing yards on 10 of 14 pass attempts. He got valuable snaps in a critical part of the Florida State game due to an injury to Anthony Richardson.

He is expected to compete for the starting job next season if the rumors that Anthony Richardson will declare for the NFL draft become a reality.
