Default How do you see backup QB shaking out?

With the departure of McIlwain, we are left pretty thin at QB. Obviously, McIlwain's production at QB doesn't make him a huge loss, but we are now left with only one scholarship QB who has any pass attempts...Scarnecchia who has one pass attempt.

Probably the only other option would be Ulrich, but that's not a good way to go for obvious reasons. We have a couple walk-ons but I'm fine if we leave the walk-on thing in the past.

It seems Scar is the obviously (only?) option, so I would look for him to get the bulk of snaps during spring practice. Frankly, he should probably get them all.

Scar is option one, then Urich. Urich redshirts if Bentley and Scar stay healthy - he needs to get stronger.

I think you see some Wildcat with Dowdle and/or Deebo to rest Bentley.

If we do have injuries, Hart and Gordon are our two walk-on QBs.

Picking up a JUCO or graduate transfer becomes a viable option now.

Bentley seemed pretty durable when taking hits last year.

OL development is suddenly much more important. Gotta protect him.

Default Re: How do you see backup QB shaking out?

I would imagine they are looking for a potential Grad School or JUCO guy who could come in provide some experience and provide depth. Other than that as others have said get Scar some reps and hope if it comes down to it, the walk-ons can fill in. I think it is important to keep the RS on Urich.

Default Re: How do you see backup QB shaking out?

Unfortunately, we don't have any cupcakes scheduled this year early in the season to give a back up considerable playing time. Louisiana Tech is our fourth game and second home game, but they are a good team, although they did lose a lot of their star players. Most notably, their QB, WR and a Safety to graduation.

We need a back up that can play right away. I think CWM will look for a Juco or Grad transfer. Hopefully Scar is ready to roll and he can hold down that #2 spot and prove he can lead us to Victory if and when called upon.

Hayden Hurst as emergency backup option. Call Mike Rath to see if he's got an burn left.

This dovetails into a problem that has been for too long at SC - the inability to blow teams out that we should blow out. When we struggle to put away the Furmans, ECUs, Vandys, and Citadels, we waste opportunities to get backups (at all positions) valuable playing time and EXPERIENCE (for building QUALITY, experienced depth)!

I didn't realize Scar missed all of last year with an injury.

Scarnecchia has played in just one game, appearing for the final drive against LSU in 2015. He missed the entire 2016 season with a labrum injury but he is 100 percent for spring practice.

Would be interesting to see how much muscle or plain old weight JB puts on during his time here.

SEC can be brutal for QBs. I don't know the last starting QB we've had here that really survive the season without missing a game (though it was probably Dylan Thompson in 2015).

Maybe Tyler Harris (pursuing Graduate Degree and exhausted eligibility at Central Florida) or Marvin Zanders (Missouri) but I assume most graduate transfers are looking to go somewhere that is desperate for a starting QB or to otherwise escape a pretty bad situation.

I agree, but it will be hard to do. They will essentially be stepping into a similar situation that they left. Bentley will be #1. only way they play is if he gets injured. Also, there aren't many Qb's left under the grad transfer rule. We might have to roll with it and hope Scar and one more guy steps up.

Maybe we should have brought in Shuler, Jake's brother.

Mississippi State lost a pair of quarterbacks in Damian Williams (Texas State)*and Nick Tiano (UT-Chattanooga). Shuler Bentley, the brother of South Carolina QB Jake Bentley, decided to transfer from Old Dominion in favor of Murray State.
* * * * * **
Uncommitted Transfers

DeShone Kizer is off to the NFL, but Notre Dame will not hand Malik Zaire the reins. According to Tom Loy of 247Sports, the two favorites to land Zaire are Wisconsin and North Carolina—the latter of which saw Mitch Trubisky leave for the pros.

Pete Sampson of Scout notes Zaire is currently training in Arizona and will make a decision in mid-April.
Although Zaire is the last standout option available who can play immediately, there's a former top prospect changing locations.


Josh Newberg*of 247Sports broke the news that Malik Henry, a 4-star recruit in the 2016 class, would no longer be at Florida State. Newberg later reported Henry has enrolled at Independence Community College in Kansas.

The junior college ranks will likely be a temporary stop before Henry picks an FBS school during the upcoming cycle. UNLV's Dalton Sneed plans to follow a similar path.
According to Ryan Dunleavy of NJ.com, Hayden Rettig and Chris Laviano are departing from Rutgers. Rettig graduated in December, while Laviano is on track to obtain his degree in May and will then transfer.*Mike Dare is also moving on.

Rettig and Laviano are one-year patches for a desperate school, and two other options have two seasons of eligibility left. Marvin Zanders(NOW W/ UVA) is*leaving Missouri, and Central Florida's Tyler Harris will*pursue a graduate degree elsewhere.

The transfer market has dwindled quickly, so programs still looking for a new quarterback are running out of options.

Hoping that Scar can nail down #2 spot and give Bentley a breather here and there during the season. He's been in the program a long time and should be a serviceable QB by now.
