    I'd read that he was close to committing to Iowa State but wanted to take his visit first. Hopefully his visit went well. I wonder if he does commit if he will stay at QB.

    It appears he is definitely being recruited as a QB.

    Does anyone know how good he is? I see he had an offer from the Texas State Armadillos, so there's that.

    I was hoping for an immediate JUCO QB, but read that it's not a good year for JUCO QB in this years class.

    No way he beats out Paul Blake. Too much experience.

    6 BCS offers as well as Rice, Houston and other Texas schools that can usually obtain decent qbs. Great get for a pretty thin qb class.

    He does have a pretty decent offer list, I wonder how many teams are actually recruiting him as a QB though.

    You say that as if it's set in stone. You can always switch the position if he feels he wont see the field for a long time at QB. Who knows, may be the guy we are looking for.

    I'm not saying anything is set in stone, and I'm not questioning his abilities as a QB. I was just wondering because he seems to be a pretty good athlete, so other teams may be recruiting him to play WR or something else. He may prefer to play QB so that might also give teams like ISU a leg up on the competition who might not see him at the QB position.

    Decent offer list. More excited about the development of Lanning and Hodge. I think Lanning is the future. Dude has a cannon and the coaches keep talking about how far he has progressed already. I hope he beats out Richardson and Rohach. Lanning may not be much of a scrambler but maybe that'll help get rid of that abomination of a zone read offense we run and just a pocket passer.

    Pocket passer, solid O-line (fingers crossed) that can hold a pocket and pass protect, great receivers in Bundrage, Montgomery, Daley, PJ Harris, Lazard, etc. could be good for us.

    It's from a movie, but I can't think of the name right now.

    Looks like a smaller, perhaps slightly speedier version of Arnaud. Well, considering Arnaud was our last QB to go over 2,000 yards in a season, I'd say he's worth a look.

    What was Arnaud's 40 time??? On rivals it says Darius runs a 4.5. I could very well be wrong but Arnaud wasnt anywhere close to that was he?

    He was a junior college player, and other schools wanted him as a potential defensive back rather than a QB. He ran a 4.5 40, but he was short. He was a good running QB, but more so when plays broke down. But he also ran to lengthen throwing plays, and he was a very capable pocket passer. Anyone know who I am referring to?

    I'd say this guy, from coming out of HS, would be more similar to this, not any other QB. Whether he can throw a very nice ball & have accuracy on the move would be the difference, but that could improved coming out of HS and developing over a couple years, if necessary (and possible with the proper coaching).

    I would put him more in the Bret Meyer category. Just depends on how well he can throw. Campbell is 6'2" and 200 lbs. Meyer ran a 4.5 and was 6'3" but was just a little smaller at 180.
