    I'd be surprised if we took another scholarship QB unless we flipped Hinder or Colter. Hirschman is there, Spond will get a chance, and you can be sure that we'll have a walk on or 2 (i.e., Jake Johnson, Longmont :thumbsup:).

    The staff is definitely taking their time with this one. But I still think the staff will convince Spond that he's better suited for MLB. Things should work themselves out this season. If Spond doesn't impress throwing the ball, I think CU will try to bring in another QB.

    I also don't see Colter as a QB. What's your thoughts on Cain?

    Re: '10 HI QB Andrew Manley

    My thought on Kain is that he's like Josh Moten. Could be a helluva safety and alternately could work the slot as a WR. But you give him a freshman camp to try to prove himself at QB in order to keep him happy and because if he does surprise you by looking like the real deal at QB you end up with a superlative athlete behind center.

    As far as our chances on him, I think that he's a much more solid verbal to Stanford than Bonnell is.

    Re: '10 HI QB Andrew Manley

    Colter definitely isn't a QB in my opinion. I like him a lot though, and hope he drops Stanford eventually. It seems though that he's comfortable with not being a QB at the next level, and Spond REALLY wants the opportunity. If Hawk promised him a shot at QB, then I think he needs to be given that shot - just a chance, and then move him if things don't work out. I think it's ****ty if you promise a guy a shot, and then just immediately move him. Moten is in a similar position - he deserves to be given a shot based solely on that's what the coaching staff said they'd give. I don't thin any of these three wind up at QB, but give them their chance if they want it.

    I'm still afraid that Spond will renege on his commitment and go to a school that is committed to him as a QB, not just giving him a look there.

    I found Manley's tape more impressive than Hirschman's. I thought he had a great presence in the pocket. Good delivery. Could hold the ball a little higher. Tends to throw off his back foot.

    I would like to see us offer. Potentially, we don't have a QB in the 2009 class.

    Don't underestimate Hirschman. He's a good one.

    Re: '10 HI QB Andrew Manley

    Not underestimating anyone.....and I'm certainly not good enough to compare players.

    I like this guy's throws. When the pattern/play required him to zing one, he did it. Whe it required touch, he did it. Seems to throw a very catchable ball. Also, seems to be able to escape the rush.

    It the UH warriors let this guy off the islands they're fools.

    It looks to me like he's trying to get off the islands any way he can. I doubt he ends up at UH unless that's his only offer.

    I don't have any inside info. JMO.

    Re: '10 HI QB Andrew Manley

    Yeah, and after I made my post I remembered that they have a different coach - the one that a jerk of himself with the comments about Sorta Lame Blighting irish pre-game motivational chant.

    We have one standard QB and one QB/LB/TE/FB (whatever category ya want Spond in) already committed. Makes me think Manley won't come to Boulder. Could be wrong, tho.

    Articles about Andrew Manley at the Super Seven QB Retreat

    By gokamoto

    About participating in the Super Seven QB Retreat, Andrew Manley said:

    “I’m just amazed at everything. It’s unbelievable. I’m just trying to take everything in and make myself a better quarterback.” (HA)

    Asked what he’s doing at the camp with the elite QB recruits from the mainland, Manley said:

    “I just want to prove to myself and others that I can hang with these guys. So far, I feel as if I’m right there with all of them.” (HSB)

    HA Note: “Manley, who directed Leilehua to a state title as a sophomore and reached the finals last season. Manley was named 2008 co-offensive player of the year by The Honolulu Advertiser after passing for 3,642 yards and 31 touchdowns, and rushing for four more.”

    About how he was surprised to receive an invitation to the Super 7 camp, Manley said:

    “I wasn’t expecting it. They just told me they wanted the elite seven, and because I’m a decent quarterback from Hawai’i, they asked me to come, too, to be the local boy.” (HA)

    About how Norm Chow was the first to recommend Manley to him, QB guru Steve Clarkson said:

    “He really, really liked Andrew and thought I should consider him for this event. Then I had a chance to evaluate him on film and talk to other coaches across the country who’ve seen this guy, and they all were in amazement that he had this much talent and that he was under the radar because of his location. Sometimes you want to able to look like a genius, and I feel like Andrew is going to make me look like a genius because I’m the first to say, ‘Yeah, this kid’s got it.’ ” (HA)

    [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif][SIZE=-1] MILILANI — Mililani jumped to a 21-3 first-half lead and then held off arch rival Leilehua's fourth-quarter rally last night for a pulsating 21-18 victory in the O'ahu Interscholastic Association football opener for both teams.

    [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif][SIZE=-1] The Trojans improved to 2-0 overall in winning the huge OIA Red Conference Western Division showdown before an energized capacity crowd of about 4,500 at John Kauinana Stadium.
    [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif][SIZE=-1] Leilehua, the defending state runner-up, fell to 1-1.

    [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif][SIZE=-1] The Mules closed to 21-18 with 3:15 remaining in the game after Andrew Manley's two-point conversion pass to Kamana Akagi. The two had hooked up on an almost identical 5-yard corner route for a touchdown the play before.

    [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif][SIZE=-1] WAHIAWA — Jeremy Higgins completed 19 of 32 passes for 283 yards and three touchdowns last night, helping Saint Louis hold off Leilehua, 28-21, in nonleague action at Hugh Yoshida Stadium.
    [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif][SIZE=-1] The Crusaders improved to 3-0; the defending state runner-up Mules fell to 1-2.


    [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif][SIZE=-1] The game featured two of the state's top quarterbacks, Higgins and Leilehua's Andrew Manley — The Advertiser's State Co-Offensive Player of the Year in 2008. Manley finished 17 of 28 for 187 yards and two TDs, and his 20-yard scamper for a score helped the Mules close to 28-21 with 8:17 remaining.

    No. 9 Leilehua 47, No. 7 Waianae 28
    Andrew Manley's huge game put the Mules back in the hunt for an OIA Red West title.
    Manley completed 19 of 32 passes for 344 yards and three touchdowns as the Mules handed the Seariders their first league loss.
    CJ Bailey hauled in an 89-yard touchdown catch and had 139 total yards of offense for Leilehua, which moved into a tie with Waianae. Both trail league-leading Mililani.
    Puletua Wilson finished 13-for-27 for 216 yards and three touchdowns, but the Seariders had three turnovers that Leilehua turned into 10 points.

    Re: '10 HI QB Andrew Manley (Committed to New Mexico State)

    Congrats to Manley for getting a mainland offer. He committed to NMSU.

    He'd been pretty high on CU throughout the process and, I believe, was a bit of a backup plan for us. I took a look at his film (tough to evaluate QBs, imo) and I've been of the opinion that Manley's been under-recruited this cycle. So good for him and good luck.

    Re: '10 HI QB Andrew Manley (Committed to New Mexico State)

    WOOT! As an NMSU Alum it's good to hear a quality QB is committed to them. Turns out they had 3 commits today. 2 QBs and 1 MLB from St Bonaventure.

    DeWayne Walker is going to help turn that program around.
