Default Connor Mitch, next big thing?

Ok, you knew it was coming. It is officially the offseason, so we can now speculate about anything and everything, with no facts because we are just speculating.

I have seen a lot of who starts at QB this year, and while I fully believe Dylan will most likely lead our team this year, I want to talk about another QB who plays for us.

Recently he has been overlooked, because the way we run our offense, everyone expects Nosovitch to take the reigns, because his play style resembles Connor Shaw's more than that of Mitch.

When Connor Mitch was recruited in 2012 and signed and eventually enrolled early, everyone was high on this kid. I mean when Steve Spurrier tells you he will coach your entire career if you come play QB for him, your not just an average QB recruit, you must be something special. We all know that the thread pops up every offseason of when will Spurrier call it quits, or who will replace him, but he made it a note to tell this guy from NC that he will be here as long as he plays QB at South Carolina.

Lets look at some stats.
http://www.maxpreps.com/athlete/conn...ball-stats.htm

So apparently over 2 seasons with 2 different Varsity teams he passed for a total of: 8533 yards, 111 TDs with only 9 INTs.. completions were 560 out of 922 pass attempts. Not too shabby.

He was also recruited as one of the top Pocket Passing QBs in the 2013 class. He chose South Carolina over Alabama, Auburn, FSU, Florida, LSU, North Carolina, Vanderbilt, Wisconsin, Tennessee and the list goes on and on. That is one heck of a recruiting resume for a QB.

So we got a steal with this guy. He was Redshirted this past season, and now sits at Number 3 I would say on the Depth Chart? Mainly because he has not played a game for us yet, and was in a redshirt year.

Anyways with all that being said, I am high on Connor Mitch. I think having another Connor at the helm next year would be very huge for us. Not just any Connor, because you cannot replace a Connor Shaw. But this kid has showed time and time again he can be a baller.

I look for him to really push for the job of QB in the offseason. Again may the best QB win, but for him I think he really has a shot.

Agreed, he could very well be "that qb" the one most have over looked in his early career much like manziel and winston

I'm all for it. When Dylan pushed Connor Shaw, Shaw improved. If Mitch and Nosovitch push Thompson, the same thing will likely happen. Bring it.

This is exactly the reason our team has done so well the last few years.....we have depth at every position and the starters know there is someone right there looking over their shoulder.

With no real replies, and lots of views, I am wondering if anyone has ever seen this kid play. Does anyone know he once threw 9 TD passes in a game lol

He was highly touted for a reason, but the fact remains his accomplishments were in high school, not the SEC, so while we all want him to come in and be the best QB in the history of college football, most of us also want to wait to see how he does in his first college game before anointing him the next big thing.

Yawn. Maybe a lot of folks posted in the earlier QB thread. Maybe they saw little they wanted to respond to. I saw him play in the spring game. He redshirted. We'll see.

Default Re: Connor Mitch, next big thing?

I'm curious to how things will play out. Truth be told, I'd be a bit disappointed if NOS doesn't see the field some. I guess it all comes down to Thompson and how SOS feels about him. I do know this. I saw our HBC stick to his guns with Shaw, and NO body can argue with those results. Do I want to see Mitch at helm? Only if he is the man, and this coming year, I think that could be a tall mountain to climb. If NOS is not the player I think, then Mitch may sniff more than just few snaps. We'll see........

I have a question for you and the others that think Noso should start....what have you seen or heard about him that makes you think he will start. I'm not criticizing, I'm just aasking.

Kept the ball on two seperate zone read plays and bowled over defenders to get into the endzone this year. Parade All-American that set a ton of QB records in Pennsylvania (Dan Marino and Terrelle Pryor just a couple of the many talented QBs to come out of that state).

Looked good in the spring game and heard a bunch of talk about him during the past two fall camps. Like that he brings a similar skill set that Shaw had so that the zone read can still be run effectively.



I still don't understand why this thread wasn't added onto the other QB discussion thread. Admins slacking

Connor Mitch as a whole fits into the description of a QB discussion. He does play QB after all.

Don't forget, a coach and I think Legree said that he did work during last years bowl practice while he was redshirting.
