Would we take two QBs this year?? Because we're also the top choice for Avery McCall.

That's a fair question, and my hope is that we take both, especially if we don't get Nunez...really, I would like us to take both even if we got Nunez.

McCall and McIlwain are both great mobile QB's and just overall great athletes. I think either could become skill position players if being an SEC QB didn't work out, either DB or WR. Gilmore was a QB in HS, and then ended up being a 1st Rd CB.

Now that JC has predicted Brandon coming to SC, many more people will just follow that pick. I like our chances with both QB's and it's good to have 2 high quality options like this so early.

Visiting our one day camp July 25 to work with Magnus. He wants to decide in Jan or Feb 2015 to enroll in Jan 2016. We lead. He's a guy that will help recruit after he makes his decision.....just like BAW.

Odd that we have a good shot with this kid, and we have Nunez verbaling for next year.

Two very mobile qb's. I was pleasantly surprised at Mitch's mobility at the spring game. Obviously he is not going to make people forget Shaw, but he has enough mobility to run the read option, and get some yards, even if he isn't going to bust one. You know to make the defense at least respect the qb run, if they call that play with him in there.

I really didn't watch much tape of Scarnecchia. Is it possible he has better mobility than I am thinking? My impression was he was a pocket guy, but maybe he is as athletic as Mitch? Just asking because I'm wondering if we have any guys signed, coming in, or recruiting who just plain couldn't run the read option?

Not trying to bore anyone, but that is our bread and butter running play right now.

Mangus has built a great relationship with him and cemented it even further with him and his family by encouraging him to skip the showcase and go visit Stanford while he has the chance. I really don't see Stanford as a threat do to distance and type of offense that they run. According to CC at GCC we are the leader right now and will be tough to beat.

IMO, this is our biggest recruit since Clowney. From what I was told after yesterday's camp is that he is the total package.

Hopefully Stanford doesn't blow him away too much.

I also worry about Franklin at Penn State if they have a super year. I just can't see him letting an elite QB leave his state especially with Hackenberg probably going pro after next year.

He could be Brandon Football. C2 is correct, he has it all &, unlike Johnny Football, doesn't act like he knows it all. He can make all of the throws, very quick, elusive, aware, & he has absolute blazing speed.

Definately not a lock, but he is our #1 target. If he comes here, he could be the guy who takes us to the next level....as in our first SEC Championship & beyond....seriously, he is that darn good.

Elcid, really enjoy reading your posts! However, I find this one statement a bit bewildering as I feel that he may take us BACK to get ANOTHER SEC Championship.....JS

Nonetheless, I look forward to your future posts and appreciate you letting us in on what you know.

We haven't won one yet. Hope he brings us our 3rd, but my point was-absolute game changing QB.

Hopefully this doesn't stir up everyone into an irrational rage, but Rivals just released their first top 250 ranking for the 2016 class and McIlwain was not included:

there are 19 QB on this list, so the fact that he isn't on it isn't troubling to me. Plus all these kids have to play a senior year and there will be multiple changes in the next year.
