Mitch has zero chance to throw a pass next season.

He's a redshirt. Believe that.

(unless something goes catastrophically wrong and Shaw/Thompson are both kicked off the team).

The cool thing is, though, that we will get to see him get some major snaps in the spring game. Shaw and Thompson will have very few snaps since the coaches know what they can do. We will see a lot of Noso vs Mitch in the game.

Wouldn't be so sure about that.

They'll rest Connor because he will likely still be recovering.

But Thompson should receive a ton of reps because he is still a work in process. They'll give Nosy an increased workload and I bet that Mitch is delegated to fundamental drills.

Wasn't Todd Ellis the last highest QB prospect we got out of NC? Didn't he redshirt, too? He was amazing for us when he was on target, but could also throw some picks when he was off. Against Clemson: 1-1-1, not bad considering the overall history, didn't get to play them in '89 because of the broken leg midway through Ole Sparky's first year.

Ellis was a big recruit. He played as a true freshman and racked up some statistics.

However, he threw passes to a guy named Sterling Sharpe, who was arguably the best receiver in Carolina history. The dude had wheels like Byrd and hands like Alshon. Sterling made Todd a made a ton of yac which padded Todd's freshman stats.

Most of the passes were run and shoot flat passes that looked like wide receiver screens.

Ellis should have been 2-1. We missed a 42 yard fg at Clemspon following an amazing Sharpe reception to the 25 yard line as time was winding down. Game ended tied.

As great as this is, I hope we can sign some receivers that can match the skill this QB seems to have.

I see C Shaw as the starter next year and being even better but he is not a deep ball thrower. We need to be able to throw deeper than we do now in order to fully utilize our WRs opimum potential. It's hell to cover the entire for even the best defenses. Most tems are able to stack the box and ignore our long ball threat because Connor prefers to throw short to middle distance passes. It's the long ball that spreds out the defense preventing them from stacking the box. We saw Dylan thonpson throw the longest balls this season which totally incapacitated the defense trying to defend him deep.

The receiver position will be fine.

Ellington (Soph), Byrd (Soph), K. Smith (Frosh), Fuller (Frosh), Roland (Frosh), Brent (Frosh), Jeffery (Frosh), Jones (Soph) are all young players. Inexperienced, yes, but they have their best years ahead of them.

We also get Ace for one more year.

There is a little bit of chatter that Cooper, Langley, and Sasser could play some receiver here as well.

Not only that but I expect a good size WR class for 2014.

Regardless of the semantics...Mitch is a Gamecock.
It will be fun watching him and Nosovtich duke it out in the near future for backup duty and eventually starting time...because those two are our future (along with Drew Barker if he signs in 2014).

Mangus is going to sign a QB every year, so it'll be a yearly debate like it pretty much already is only this time the QBs will have better high school accolades.

KJ Brent and Kwinton Smith both have good size @ around 6'3-6'4.

In fact, according to the pay sites, the staff tinkered around with the idea of pulling the redshirt off of Smith for LSU (I think). Apparently he has been ballin so far in practice.

People just need to be patient with the youngsters. They'll start coming around here in the next year or so. It'll be a lot of their 3rd year in the system and that is when you typically see players start playing with instincts because they know the offense well enough to the point where they aren't thinking a whole lot. You see that with Ace Sanders, and more surprisingly, Bruce Ellington this year.

Busta and Jerell wouldn't work at receiver. They don't move well enough. If they had to move one, it would probably be Jerell because he is the better athlete. But notice that Spurrier primarily uses the Tight Ends on crossing patterns and down the seam so they can use their straight line speed to run away from coverage. You don't see many corner, post, curls, etc etc.

It was the same with Cook and Saunders.

Default Re: Connor Mitch signs letter of intent

for those who say that ee's don't sign loi's, i don't know what you are talking about. of course they do. every player sign's a loi except walkons. there were two things i read, which clearly stated that he signed an loi. and over the years, we have read about players signing an loi early because of early enrollment. so i don't know where that came from.
also, thompson will be a knowledgeable and dependable qb if a situation comes up to use him, but make a note now that dylan will not be a starter the rest of his years here unless there's several injuries. nosi will pass him next year, and mitch will pass him the year after that. thompson will be a situational guy at best.
these qb's we are bringing in now, are super talented, and it will show right off the bat. yes, they each will need redshirts to learn the system, get stronger and find their groove. but that is normal, and a good sign that shaw has things well in hand. but make no mistake, you are already witnessing the golden age of qb's at usc, but it is just getting started. shaw was the first, and it is going to go for a while now.

Early Enrollees do not sign LOIs. They'll sign financial papers that bind them to the school and enroll.

They don't count against our 25 cap, but they do count against the overall numbers (82 I believe for next year).

That is one of the benefits for having EEs, you can have more flexibility in your classes.

For example, we will have 5 EEs this year .. Mitch, Rolin, Langley, Park, and Martin.

Only Martin will sign an LOI I believe because he is a JUCO.

So we will have 24 LOIs available to send out on NSD. Obviously, with our total scholarship restrictions, we won't have room for essentially a 29 man class but it would be possible if we were severely under the 85 cap a particular year.
