Perspective: IIuc, all his D1 offers were from the academies and us, and we offered a few weeks before NSD because someone flipped.
Some people on here looked at his HS film and saw the great D1 QB with a strong arm that every university scout passed on. He has a strong arm, but his throwing motion was not great, imo. I'm no expert, but it looked like he had difficulty squaring and setting his front foot so that his trail foot often carried a lot of rotational momentum, making it difficult to be accurate consistently. Also, he often threw off his from the air. He strikes me more as a hurler than a passer.
His upside, that he showed in the spring game, is that he runs hard, with good balance. He also seems to me to have good vision and pad level. As I've said before, and now for the third and last time, I think he would make a good A-Back in our system.
I wonder how many people who see this transfer as a big deal also were happy that TW was starting over Vad in 2012.
