We need a QB in the worst way. Hopefully, this is the guy.

Apparently, Starks is now at Iowa Western CC instead of Southwest Mississippi. Ke'shan Pennamon, another former wave target, is there as well.

I thought the "quarterbacks we need you'" was talking about possibilities for this fall. Would'nt those guys just be part of the 2019 recruiting discussion.

We need a another qb for this fall.

Starks would have to blow up to be our top older option at QB for 2019.

Agreed. He was a project coming out of W.E. Will be interesting to see how much he's progressed.

There's a 3*DB/QB from Comeaux, Christian Archangel visiting today or tomorrow. He visited lsu in March. He lists himself as a 3*DB but he did play QB. I don't know if he has DI QB talent or if he's more interested in one position over the other.
Perhaps the lsu interest is for DB but we could snag him as QB if he wants to play QB.

He was possibly a target for the 17 class. He mentioned Tulane in the article. http://www.staugustine.com/sports-high-school-high-school-football/2016-12-24/all-county-football-ponte-vedras-nick-tronti


Good find. One would think we're an ideal situation for him, actually. He can't play next year anyway, then he'd have 3 left to play and Banks is gone so there would likely be wide open competition.

Lane Kiffin reels this one in.

Kincaid Dent from Yazoo City, MS is a guy we're really interested in at QB. Keep a close eye on him. Offers from Cincy, Colorado State, Arkansas St, ULL, Toledo, Western Kentucky, South Alabama. Tall, lean kid (6'4, 190) with a good arm, good touch and some athleticism. Would be more of a passer than a runner but has the ability to pick up first downs on the ground. Isn't a breakaway threat as a runner.

I suspect the biggest obstacle to our attracting a QB is the perception of the system here. Everyone outside of the program still thinks that the WF offense is a triple option variant or something close to what was being run at GSU. The truth is that, today, it is much closer to being his SHSU version which should attract passers. I also feel WF and staff failed to recruit to the SHSU style QB in his first class and instead recruited to the GSU style. The second class was somewhere in between. I expect this and future classes to move toward the SHSU model.

We had 241 passing attempts last year, good for 123 in the country so I'm not sure "perception" is really the issue here.

Did anyone notice that Bevyn Jones responded to the tweet of Kincade!
I think it is great that a commitment is helping recruit.
That is the type of teamwork we need.

The 123rd looks worse than the 241. Anyone paying attention would see that this is a good offense for a QB who can run.

For perspective, Virginia Tech ranked 65th in passing attempts (there are 130 FBS schools). They had 412 attempts, more than 70% more than we did. We are a far, far cry from "normal". Doesn't mean we can't have a good offense or, as you said, be an attractive place for a running QB, but if those numbers continue, it will be a challenge to get good passers.
