We still need a QB this class, right? Not any more.

I doubt we bring one on this class. Two blue-chippers in as many years. I’d imagine ‘20 is the year we take another.

You can’t anticipate and don’t expect a transfer.

I think both Tommy and Chance play in ‘19.
Bingo. Expect the staff to go all-in in 2020 on a prized QB.

Given the way our staff has spoken about how this year will make an impact on the 2020 class, and if we get off to a hot start in 2019 (no reason not to believe we could be at least 4-1 depending on the Sept. 14 opponent)... I am hopeful/somewhat expecting quite a big fish... is that crazy?

Could be a gigantic need if Chance bolts after next year if Tommy looks like a no doubt 3 year starter. Good QBs don't wait around 4 years to get a shot as a RS SR. Don't want to get stuck with 0 depth behind Tommy next year.
Todd Philcox says "?". (Back when waiting your turn was the norm.)

you'd still have Culpepper for a year and you'll 'hopefully' have a blue chipper entering Syracuse in August of 2020. Not ideal but it's 2 years away.
Rex is a TE now. I'm not sure betting that you can pick up a blue chipper is a great strategy. That blue chipper would have to be #2 on the depth chart too. Quite the gamble.

So is bringing in a BList QB who takes up a ship.

If Rex needed to play QB he could.

No kidding and that's without factoring in that QB recruiting is about a 50/50 proposition any way. That's why every big school usually tries to grab at least 1 every year. Essentially hoping to hit on 1 every 2/3 years.

Yes, they need to recruit a QB every class. To important not to.
While I agree with you Whitey, it's hard to do. Kids want to play and so many teams are always looking for you to start thus having TD many won't be interested in being QB2 fro 3 years. I'm very very curious to know what Babers looks at in HS QB's and what is said regarding this.

To me, you sell the fact that you are competing for the #1 spot vs a QB that hasnt started a game. We know TD is good but to the outside world he hasnt done anything yet. You have to sell that to potential transfers or prospects. You also have to tell them, they most likely could be #2 and one hit away from being the starter.

Saw Kramer Cook and others on staff have recently followed David Baldwin (IMG) and Lance Legrende (La.) who are 2 '19 QB's. No other information on actual recruitment but thought I'd share based upon recent Amie situation.

the question I would ask is when did they start following those two?

edit I see they have recently followed them

Would Sam Saxton be the third guy? From the same locale as Coach Martin, has a P5 offer (Rutgers), crystal ball says he's going to Michigan State.

Levi Williams I would also ask about, for similar reasons.

No idea what Baldwin’s deal is but Lance Legrende has upcoming visits to Tennessee 1/18 and FSU 1/25. The staff has their work cut out for them but imo big time selling point right now is you basically step into #2 and could be a multi year starter after DeVito. Not many places can offer that incentive.
