Using your example: Bama runs a "pro-style", power running offense. Certainly not a spread-out passing offense. So, you would say that they shouldn't recruit a QB from a pass-first, spread offense, because he isn't used to their offense ... even if he is the best throwing QB in the nation.I kinda disagree with you recruit talent and train to fit the O. At some positions, yes. Hate to bring up SEC, you won't see Bama recruit a scrambling QB, doesn't fit the O.
Lee is a prime example. Sure, he ran the offense and moved the ball but how effective was it? Honestly?
But, Nick Saban and Bama would definitely recruit that QB from the pass-first spread offense because his skill set fits what they want their QB to do. Then they would teach the concepts of their offense to him.
