    I feel like I have seen way more offers from this coaching staff go out than in the past. Maybe Im wrong

    I was just thinking the same thing. Probably because of our recognition and accomplishments

    They like happy endings with hands. Was it a fair offer?

    Anyone with season tickets needs to stop talking to Happy. Since he is being recruited it is a violation....

    Looking forward to seeing how this cycle goes. At this point we have 184 offers out (per 247). We reached 380 offers by the end of last signing period.

    First I heard about these transfers. Tucker Israel is a junior dual style who graduated from Lake Nona HS (Orlando area). Was rated as a 3*. Hunter Johnson is a freshman pro style who is from Indiana. Was rated as a 5*.

    Tucker Israel is Kyle Israel’s cousin I believe.

    This is how most coaching staffs operate. The O'leary staff had antiquated tactics.

    And we signed 19 right?

    That’s a 5% hit rate. I wonder how they compares to our peers

    I read that he redshirted and may also get a medical exemption. Allegedly he may have 2 or 3 years of eligibility left and could step in as a number 2

    The HUDL tape didn't show arm strength or speed. Is he worth bringing in if the other two have one or both of these?

    At Laka Nona, Israel put up eye-popping numbers. He set the state record for career passing touchdowns with 162 and set the single season TD mark with 56, breaking a record previously held by Tim Tebow. He passed for 4,446 yards as a senior and 15,034 in his career.

    Both transfering QBs are rated well and I think Heup is a great QB coach. I would gladly welcome either of these men to Knight Nation.

    A bit overly dramatic. He transferred to plant so he could graduate early and enroll in the spring. He wasn’t going to start there so is transferring where he can start. To say a player is no good because he isn’t the starter is asinine. Only one player can start. It’s entirely possible there were multiple good QBs on the roster there.

    The 5* is probably a bit of a long shot, but yes either would give us some much needed depth.

    Why should anyone feel good about a QB that isn’t good enough to start his senior year???

    He might but only because we pull his offer, not by choice....

    not being overdramatic. There are talks he might move for a 2nd time bc of worries about the depth chart. I'll put a heavy wager he'll never do anything significant at the College level if he is already playing that game with HS level competition. I wish Purdy wasn't so in love with the Power 5 label bc that would have been a much better prospect to succeed Milton

    If drew brees was on the same team as Tom Brady he also wouldn’t be good enough to start. Only one player can start for a team. That doesn’t mean there can’t be multiple talented QBs on a team. That’s the point.

    Hypothetical example. Using Brady as an example coming out of Michigan as a backup might be a better example but that is a very isolated case. The bottom line is..... How many senior backup QBs at any level are successful at the next level? I don't know the answer but would guess a very low percentage. And there are many underlying reasons as to why.....
