I think we offered him as a preferred walk-on.

Based on this Phil Kornblut update from 3 days ago, it would appear that the greyshirt offer we made in the fall still stands. There is no mention of it being reduced to a preferred walk-on offer. Who the heck knows until an announcement of some sort is made...

He costs us nothing. We can have roster of 105 including walk ons. We've got at least 3 other preferred walk ons coming this summer too.....all of them good players.

I know some people pretty close to his recruitment, it's about a 90% chance he plays for the Garnet and Black. He and Scarnecchia are real hidden gems. We can definitely focus on just one QB next year (a top QB) and recruit tons and tons of OL and RB

If we give Baldwin a greyshirt, he gets a scholarship in 2015 -- in essence making him a part of next year's class (although he would have already used a redshirt year by then). If this happens, I think it's entirely possible we don't sign a QB in next year's class.

The truth is, we are not in the mix for any "top" or elite QBs in the class of 2015. We have offered Kelly Bryant who is a 4-star with Rivals (3-star with most other sites), but most experts project he'll wind up at Clemson. We are not in the mix for any other quarterback with a 4-star rating or better, at least not at this point...although it is still early enough to jump in the mix with one, theoretically.

Considering the youth of Nosovitch and Mitch (as well as Scarnecchia and potentially Baldwin), I'm somewhat okay with this. (Next year's class is going to be stellar, whether it includes a quarterback or not, because we ARE in the mix for many elite players at other positions.) It will be important to land a big-time QB in 2016, though.

The "5 years to play 4" clock doesn't start until he enrolls. He could still RS in '15. I hope we get him...win/win.

They like Scarnecchia better though? Because they gave a regular offer and they didn't give one to Baldwin, just a gray shirt offer.

Do yourself a favor and go watch this kid's senior highlights. He's the real deal. No offense to scarnecchia but I think Bo looks like the better prospect. Bo just played for an awful team

Great prospect but there's no doubt he's a project. I'd love to see how far GA could take him after 3 years.

Bo came in #1 at the Manning Camp. This kid played on a team with no talent. If he played at North Augusta High he would have over 5000 yards. This will be a great pickup for the gamecocks because I think one of the current QB's will leave like Tanner.

Just watched his senior highlights on YouTube. The guy moves really well, especially for such a big QB. Very fluid-like movements. Pretty good arm, but not quite as much zip as I was expecting.

He kind of reminds me of Garcia as far as running style goes. Maybe... Blake Mitchell as a passer, not sure about that comparison as much.

Here's the one I watched. To be clear, I don't think he has a weak arm at all, but after reading several folks talk about how strong (big) of an arm he has, I was simply expecting more zip on the ball when Baldwin throws it.
