    So that kid can pass block. Just had to look at his QB's reel.

    Pretty decent looking prospect. Quick release and surprising agility for a guy his size.

    Washington seems to be a solid leader right now. Have to see if we can turn that.

    We are in on a LOT of QBs early. Disproportionate # wise. Looks like the staff wants this position locked down soon.

    It is how most winning programs approach QB recruiting. We shall see how it goes with this staff.

    EDIT: There really are no excuses this year in landing a blue chip QB prospect. Most of the Pac-12 schools are being very selective in offering QBs (if they even offer any at all).

    Arizona: Offers out to two elite QB prospects, one player from Arizona (Connor Brewer) already committed to Texas.
    Arizona State: Two offers out to two elite QB prospects, Connor Brewer and Cyler Miles. They did take two high school QBs in the 2011 class.
    Cal: They have a commitment from Zach Kline for the 2012 class. They should be done.
    Oregon: They do not recruit the same type of QBs as we do.
    Oregon State: Only two offers out to QBs, including Cal commit Zach Kline
    Stanford: Already has a commitment for the 2012 class from Skyler Morhinweg. They also took two QBs in the 2011 class. The only QB they are waiting is Mercer Island, WA dual threat Jeff Lindquist.
    UCLA: One offer out to Zeke Pike (longshot) after two QBs in the 2011 class, including the coach's son. Come on now.
    USC: The Trojans still carry a lot of weight with QB recruits, even after taking two blue chips in the 2011 class. Scholarship reductions might make a difference here in 2012, they have offers out to national recruits Pike and Gunner Kiel (as do we), but do not have a very good chance at either. They are a wild card.
    Utah: Offers out to four QBs, including Wilson and Cyler Miles. Norm Chow still has some pull with QB recruiting.
    Washington: Offers out to six QBs, including Wilson and Miles. They lead for Wilson and are in contention with Stanford with the aforementioned dual threat QB Linquist.
    Washington State: Who cares.

    We really need to lock down a QB early and beat some of these schools to the punch.

    I hope he had a good time. I'm going to be nervous as hell until we get a commitment from one of the 4 QBs this year. We need a blue chip at QB in the worst way.

    Don't hold your breath on this one WR.

    We are in a really weird spot right now with QB recruiting. Not sure how to feel about our chances with any of the guys we have offered thus far. Then again, who knows once the dominoes start to fall.

    Yep, that's why I'm nervous. We must get one of these guys.

    Ya we don't seem to be in particularly great standing on any QB so far

    Washington landed in-state QB Jeff Lindquist so that has to help out here

    In a bit of a surprise to me, Wilson has us right at the top among his favorites. I'll find the link in a bit.

    6'6" QB? I like it, he won't have to jump to see over the line.

    Good news, I'm starting to think we might not get left out in the cold in the QB department this year.

    I had a bad feeling that Wilson was about to commit elsewhere when he refused to return AZ's calls for an interview the past couple days.

    Can't really say that this comes as a surprise.

    Wilson skill set is more suited for a passing spread offense, which is what they do in Utah. Not a shocker that he commited to Utah.

    Still lots of very good qbs out there. The only problem is that he committed to Utah. Utah's last three recruiting classes have been pretty darn good. I'm going to miss playing divisional cupcakes like Kansas and Iowa State.
