To each their own opinion I guess. The throw at the 50 second mark shows what kind of velocity he can generate. Really would be interesting to see what he could do with a good OL.

Hadn't seen that film yet.

Nice mechanics, not a lot of wasted motion with his throw. Needs to stop throwing across his body on the run, that'll get eaten alive in the SEC.

Decent speed and dude is a load.

If he's healthy he'd be a steal.

Default Re: 2014 - Bo Baldwin

Baldwin is raw and doesn't have the offers because he battled through so many injuries, missed so much game action during his career, and played in a run oriented offense for a poor team. But talk about having a HIGH CEILING. The physical tools are damn impressive. Who knows where he could be with two or three years of development under Mangus/Spurrier? I, for one, would like to find out.

giving this guy a scholly is the ultimate gamble. he might be blake bortles or he could be holding a clip board while he prepares for a life in coaching.

Spurrier has a history of offering "project" QBs here (Clifford, Thompson, Scarn., Beecher, Hillary, McEvoy). This guy has the highest ceiling of them all.

He'd definitely be the most physically talented QB on the roster if he goes to SC. Perfect project QB and even better that you can (hopefully) get him as a walk-on.

He's got a quick release. Big asset if coupled with accuracy. Probably worth pursuing, and might get an offer if other targets fall through or don't qualify. We might end up with a couple of sign-and-place guys.

QB Bo Baldwin

Link to Baldwin’s Crystal Ball

One of the oddest recruitments this season has been that of Baldwin, an in-state quarterback without any major offers. Early in the process, South Carolina is where Baldwin wanted to play his college football and he was offered a greyshirt opportunity. When the Gamecocks landed Florida signal-caller Michael Scarnecchia, talk on Baldwin went quiet. Jason Pughe of Athlete Vault and region recruiting guru was the first to project Baldwin to Clemson. 247Sports recruiting director JC Shurburtt and others jumped on board but the Crystal Ball is trending back towards the Gamecocks. Quarterbacks coach G.A. Mangus was by Baldwin’s school on Friday and has the Gamecocks back in the mix with others still lurking.

I don't think so. I'm hoping he will take the preferred walk on at Carolina. That way he'll get an opportunity to show what he can do.

I think his injuries and playing on a terrible team scared a bunch of coaches away.
