Couldn't hurt to bring him in for some competition at the very least. I'd much rather have a QB who has been developed in-house from his freshman year on, but if this kid can play then suit him up.
His video isn't all that impressive. Barnetts hs film looked better. Its all about reading the D and making the right decision. You can't see that on highlight tapes. I think Tiller will get the job if he can make better decisions once he starts getting a lot more snaps in practice.
I like him. Didn't even watch the video. Good strong name on this kid!
Big, elusive, strong and accurate arm, and throws well rolling out in either direction. What's not to like about this guy? Who's after him?
His team will play for the California state championship this weekend against Mt. SAC.
Unless we improve everywhere else on offense, another quarterback isn't really going to help. His "highlight" film isn't terribly impressive. His receivers seemed to be decent; maybe we should be offerring some of them scholarships.
I don't think us Recruiting a quarterback has anything to do with no confidence in Tiller. I think the staff has plenty of confidence in in Jerome, but that doesn't mean that they shouldn't take someone who has talent. I mean does bringing Standard in mean the staff has no Shontrelle? No it means you take talent when you are able to, regardless of the position.
Yeah he walked on and wasn't able to do anything at Hawaii but he left there and has had some success and I'm sure improved a lot. That's what Juco does to players.
There are no trades in college football. Even if the staff is confident in Tiller as the starter and Capello and Barnett as backups, you might want depth to have another quarterback who is more experienced and can play right away and let the underclassmen develop.
If Barnett and Capello don't turn out to be amazing at such an early point in their career (which you can't just expect, while it would be awesome if they were good early) you need a backup plan. Because then you are one injury away from playing a Sophomore or Freshman QB who isn't really ready.
