Doesn't it feel like yesterday that Jon Kitna was quarterbacking in the NFL? It doesn't seem possible that the former 15-year veteran's last season came in 2011 because we just assumed that he would continue bouncing around the league as a backup.

If that doesn't make you feel old, this news will surely do the trick. Kitna's son, Jalen, who is a 3-star quarterback recruit in the 2021 class, committed to Florida on Tuesday.

Gators head coach Dan Mullen and QB coach Brian Johnson really pressed the issue to land Kitna's signature as they kept consistent contact with the 6-4, 200-pound prospect since extending their first offer to him back in January.

This is a solid triumph for Florida as Kitna was mulling official offers from the likes of SEC rival Tennessee, as well as Colorado, Arizona, Oregon State and Boston College, among others.

Kitna's son committing to school served as a reality check that we weren't exactly seeking out on this Wednesday. Congrats to the Gators and the Kitna family. If you need us, we'll be thinking long and hard about where the heck the time went.
