The QB in line for 2017 was Jordan, but he injured his foot so severely that he had a hard time staying on the field and finally had to call it quits. That's too bad. I always said that a team with Jordan at QB and Mills at BB would be a team to fear and for all our opponents including Clemson and Ugag. Sort of like Navy when Will Worth was their QB, but with better talent. But a combination of bad fortune and antiquated rules precluded that. Too bad; a Jordan/Mills combo would have resulted in a 9 win season in 2017 and maybe even better, imho.

TaQuon was also a better QB than most people gave him credit for. He had problems throwing when the protection broke down, but when it held up he could be very effective. As in:

This video reminded me of one thing: look what good things happen when our DBs turn around and locate the ball when they are in coverage.

I always had the impression he wasn’t really interested in actually going to GT. Maybe I’m wrong but it certainly felt that way his HS recruitment. And I don’t mean that as a criticism of him or our staff. Just that he seemed like GT wasn’t in his plans.
Agree with this. It seemed that his first love was ‘bama, but that ship left the port so Awburn was 1st runner up.

I know a teacher of his from Calera HS and ssid he wore a lot of GT gear during his recruitment - maybe we still have an outside chance.

I mean, it ain’t over until it’s over. So we can’t really say much one way or another until he commits or makes any public comments.
