Yeah and I bet everyone thought the same about Teddy Bridgewater, went after Jefferson instead or the Mississippi kid that left.
Bridgewater was a 2011 recruit, Jefferson was 2008 and Garrett was 2009. IIRC we were after EJ Manuel, but Jimbo, who had started recruiting him here, got him to FSU, so we signed JJ.
Skipped out on Legueax or what ever also and he turned out pretty good
He's ok for Cincy, not SEC caliber QB. 52 Comp % against Big East D's.
I'm pretty sure they decided not to offer RG3 also
Hindsight is always 20/20, but he was committed to Houston, then went to Baylor with Art Briles.
Texas fans have much more to question about RGIII.
just sayn we haven't made the best choices as of late
QB recruiting was a big issue for this staff since the start. After getting RP in 2005 it was very qustionable. However, they have done much better the last 3 years: 2011 signed Mettenberger, the top juco QB, plus project QB Rivers: 2012 they got a committment from 5* Kiel. He was literally at or on his way to the airport to fly to BR to start classes when he changed his mind. 2013: signed 2 very good prospects in Jennings and Rettig. 2014 they are in on a couple of good prospects and have yet to offer Harris. All signs point to them signing at least 1 QB in this class, which i think is a great move. Need at least 1 QB in every class imo. So the QB course has been corrected, we'll see if how they perform.
