    It seems he was granted his 6th year of eligibility.
    According to his Facebook page.

    3 more years of LJ, TO, JG, Yates and Gleason?!?! Not trying to be negative here but that’s a lot of QB’s to keep happy in college football.

    This was my thought too, I’m really happy for LJ and if he ends up being good enough to start the next 3 years then awesome, but that would have to mean you would see at least 1 of Gleason/Yates probably transfer out. But I don’t think LJ beats out everyone for the next 3 years IMO.

    Better problem to have than the alternative, as we saw the last 2 yrs. If Lucas doesn't win/hold the job past this year, he can grad transfer with 2 years left. Lets see how Lucas does on the field and whether Yates can push him for the job. Gleason still has a senior season of High School to worry about. It will shake out however it shakes out, but we have options now. Collins will keep recruiting QBs, too, regardless of who starts. Just the way it is now.

    This is excellent news. This just gives him a chance to get more tape of himself against top competition. And hopefully he can increase his chances of being a professional QB at the next level. Very happy for the young man and his family.

    Now does this also tie down a scholarship count for an additional year?

    No. It gives lj eligibility but does not bind GT.

    Not sure why you think he wouldn’t count against the 85 in 2021. Can’t think of any reason he wouldn’t. But it won’t make a difference in our 2019/2020 numbers as he was already expected to be here. Which is maybe what you meant to say.

    Odd parallel between CPJ and Gailey: Both left GT after having signed 1 4 Star QB (CCG - Nesbitt, CPJ - Graham), and having another committed to their last class (CCG - Renfry, CPJ - Yates).

    Between Lucas, Graham, Tobias, and Yates, I really think we're a lot better at QB than most people think. I also still believe the future of 2 of the QBs is at another position ultimately.
