    Russell wilson to transfer

    NC state quarterback Russell Wilson has decided to transfer and he will be eligible to play this season. He has one year left, we should take a chance at him right?

    I remember watching this kid play a bit last year, he is very athletic and very talented.

    Re: Russell wilson to transfer

    He would be better than any QB we have but I'm not sure he'd have time to get in and be prepared to start by September.

    Jeremiah Masoli really struggled to make the quick transition from Oregon to Ole Miss.

    Re: Russell wilson to transfer

    No, exhibit one:Masoli. Steele was here last spring and picking up the offense is something he will have to work on all summer. Asking this kid to come in and learn it in a couple months is a stretch. Short of someone like Denard Robinson or Taylor Martinez, I don't think there's the amount of talent needed to overcome the simplistic offense we would have to run to accommodate their knowledge of the system. That's my view anyway.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Agree, in most situations basketball transfers could step in and play within a week or two of practicing with the team. The same can't be said for football transfers, especially QBs. Not worth it for a kid with only year remaining.

    Re: Russell wilson to transfer

    What kind of baseball facilities does ISU still have? He's not eligible for baseball anymore after playing minor league ball, but I'd guess that he would be interested in continuing workouts for baseball, in addition to football. So that could be an obstacle for ISU if they were interested.

    Maybe a rusty pitching machine? Anywho, it doesn't matter he isnt coming here nor should we look at getting him.

    No way...would never have a grasp of the system by the time he left.

    Not to mention Russell would have pretty much the whole summer to learn the playbook. You guys are absolutely nuts for not wanting him

    I'd take him, but I'm skeptical. He'd have to be here very quickly to get everything under his belt.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Russell wilson to transfer

    Either Tom O'Brien is a ******* or there are some underlying issues. This kid led the conference in just about every offensive stat! And now he wants to make him the backup. Wow! Do we need him, no. Can we use him, yes. We have an athletic QB on our roster that was also a 3 year letterman in baseball and basketball. And he wears #16. He just needs a real chance to prove his worth. The 5-11 200lb Wilson did great with his opportunity! Seems like the coach has "Cam Newton" dreams.....the Glennon guy that he named the starter is 6-6 217 lbs. I hope they get their ***** whipped!

    I think we'd be crazy not to take this kid. He averaged 307.5 yards of offense per game. Our offense combined last year averaged 317.4 yards per game. He is every bit as dynamic (taking into account he is a MUCH better passer) than Robinson or Martinez.
