How does naming Wes Lunt the starter effect QB recrtuiting this year and the next couple years?
On one hand it's highly attractive for our program that a guy can come in and play early it he is good enough and works hard and on the other hand if he performs well guys will see that as they won't be able to play. But that attitude would only affect this year's QB recruiting.
I think we'll end up with an unheralded sleeper type prospect at QB this year.
I hope we get Richard Lagow... He fits that type and he his a big kid with some potential.
Agreed. They'll look for someone in the class that is a little bit raw who they can develop on campus. 2014 class we'll try to get a stud.
A lot of this will depend on the fall out (If any) from Lunt being named starter
Don't expect a big time QB recruit until the 2015 class
I sure hope we keep the ones we have ...JW et al. Plus JW can run...could he play at another position?
They'll go for a big one in 2014.. Think about this - 2014 could be Lunt's last year.
I don't want to think Lunt would leave that early, especially from what we know of his character, But who knows what money from the draft will do. This is assuming he does as well as everyone hopes he will.
I am not convinced Walsh will stay. He and his dad must have a plan for his career, and this doesn't seem to fit in. Chelf would have been a slightly different thing, as he is a junior, and would give JW time to work into the starting roll. so depending on what JW does might influence this scenario of recruiting another QB. Just think how Denton and Sorenson left, and I don't imagine they had the high expectations that JW probably has.
Just speculation, only time will tell.
I don't see that as a "character" kind of decision.
Not sure JW is a pro NFL type at qb...? But he could sure have a chance at other positions (just not sure where?)
By that I meant, I believe he and his family probably value an education, and wouldn't leave early for the draft.
He will probably graduate that year.
Will JW be big enough to fit in to a Tebow type role where he can run the ball like a FB if needed?
I really hope he stays. Seems like a great guy for this team and school.
For JW to leave would be foolish as you never know what can happen.
Don't have to look any farther than A&M for that. Tannehill is WR for 2 1/2 years then finally gets his shot. Still made top 10 NFL draft.
From all I hear from the folks around and in his hometown is...JW and family are great people.
Walsh is a very good athlete. The coaches need to figure out a way to get him on the field.
If we take a stud QB this year, he would get here in Lunt's Soph year and RS. that would make him a RS freshman Lunt's JR year. If Lunt's good enough to go Pro after that year he would have a shot at starting his RS soph year.
BUt would he want to wait that long. That is the question.
