  • Was going off a recent ranking. You can make an argument for several QBs. Ryan has a better TD:INT ratio and almost the same yardage and completion percentage as Tyler.

    Even if you want to split hairs about 3 great QBs I think my point is still valid.

    That only one of them was a 5*?

    he's automatically Ricky Towne

    got it
    Could be Mitch Mustang or Gary Brassieres or he could be Matt Jonesing or Ryan Hammer.  You never know, but he is worth a spot on the roster.

  • If you watch this guys HS tape, there is plenty to be excited about.

    First, his size is good. Obviously has room to add some more weight, but 6'4 is nice and tall and he isn't rail thin like Hyatt. Also, he's probably gained some weight already in a college program not to mention he'd have to sit out another year here so that should not be a problem when it comes time for him to be ready to play.

    His release: Above average. No hitches in his throwing motion. Doesn't have a long windup. He isn't as fast as BA or Noland are, but they are top level release quickness. Also, over the top delivery, which combined with already being 6'4, not likely to have a lot of balls batted down.

    Arm strength: Very good. Early on in his highlight tape, you can see him throw the ball 50 yards downfield. It's a bit more than a flick of the wrist, but he wasn't having to put everything he had into the throw either. He routinely throws passes 20-30 pounds downfield that are on a rope.

    Accuracy: He is frequently hitting the receivers in stride. That 50 yard downfield pass? The receiver was hit in stride. As this is a highlight video, it's impossible to say how consistently he is that accurate, but there are a lot of plays in that video, so he certainly does it with decent frequency.

    Movement: He throws well on the run. 30 yards downfield on a rope hitting a receiver in stride while rolling out and without setting his feet. That said, you watch him and even when he is moving around and often when rolling out, he shows good footwork by being able to set his feet to throw without having to stop and adjust. Again going back to that 50 yard throw, pressure had come from the outside, he was able to step into the pocket and didn't quite have time to fully set his feet but was still able to hit the throw as previously described.

    Last and definitely least, athletic ability: Least not because this is his worst trait, but because even in Morris's offense, this is by far the least important trait. HJ is very athletic. He reports a 4.7 forty time and that looks to be pretty accurate. Plenty of HS players will report a 4.4 or a 4.5 time and not show any burst or speed that HJ doesn't show on his tape. He has good burst, has some wiggle in his hip, and routinely beats the angles of the HS players. Doubtful that translates 1:1 at the collegiate level, but his reported numbers are better than Hyatt's, though Hyatts are electronically timed at a HS combine.

    Overall, this would definitely be a player to be excited about if there is any actual truth to the rumor and he could very well be the Morris's Mallett.

    You said that we saw a 5* a few years ago that didn't fit.

    Maybe I read in more than I should, because it seemed to me that you were downplaying the potential of a 5* QB coming in and having impact or that this particular QB "didn't fit".

    I pointed out that one of the best in school history was a 5* transfer, trying to point out that when it works it can be game-changing.

    Not every 5* is a sure thing, but the ones that hit (and they actually hit at a very high percentage rate) tend to have one or more game-breaking attributes.

    I was saying that being a 5* transfer doesn't make him a sure fire fit. If he decides to transfer, and if he decides to look at us, and if Morris decides to recruit him, then we'll have something to talk about.

  • #118 by Pig in the Pokey on 17 Apr 2018
  • And yet a 5* transfer is the top passing QB in Razorback history.
    facts
  • #119 by Pig in the Pokey on 17 Apr 2018
  • Tyler Wilson holds the career passing yardage, BA holds career TD and single game TD  records. Mallett does hold the single season records in yardage and TD's.
    obviously a transfer wont be the career record holder. But single season TDs and yards, as well as the fact that he is still an NFL QB 6 years later, tells me transferring 5* QBs can work out very nicely.

    Obviously this is much ado about nothing at this point. If Hunter announces he's transferring than I'll get my hopes up a bit.

    Gunnel is looking less and less likely as time goes by anyway. None of these QBs on campus appear to be the long term answer. I guess one of the true freshman could be, or maybe KJ comes in next year and takes over for four years, idk, but, I'd put Hunter right at the front of the line if he shows up. Of course he'd have to earn it, but, from a fan's perspective, he'd be the front runner.

  • Hunter Johnson is a good player, and could help us.  He fits the dual option Morris wants and can make some great throws on the run Did anyone actually look at his mopup duty stats or high school/elite 11 tape?

    78% Completion, 2 td and 1 int.  He was a true FR last year, so could transfer in RS and have 3 to play 3.  Not to mention, I would think his knowledge of the offense (Clemson & Morris offense are similar) would potentially be better than our guys.

    He is 3rd string on a National Championship contender because the #1 overall player in nation who is a freak prospect enrolled. That and he lost the job as a true FR to another great veteran QB who shined last season. Give him a year to learn the offense under Morris, and I would think he'd be ready to roll!
    A guy on ESPNU this morning was saying that Clemson probably has the most talented 4-some of QBs he's ever seen on one team.  This guy was at their spring game and was impressed by all of them including Johnson.  And they played everything live except tackling the QBs.

    1. Hunter Johnson isn’t a running QB. Did run track. But not really a runner on film.

    2. Chad Morris’s success at SMU without a running QB is basically irrelevant as the SEC is a different animal Defensively. A QB will need to be a threat running to achieve high success here

    Mallet had -103 yards rushing. Wilson had -44 yards.

    10 & 11 win seasons respectively.

  • Too many on here are enamored with the idea of having a running QB and are ignoring what style of QB Morris used in his last 2 years at SMU.

    Morris was only there two years. SMU needed a QB and Ben Hicks was a pro style guy who was already talking with SMU when Morris took the job. Morris then went out and signed JUCO Dual Threat QB in DJ Gillins. In other words, Morris can play a pro style or dual threat in his hurry up offense.

    My guess is he'll get the best QB he can every year and work him into his system.

    Agree to disagree then.

    From 2011-2013, Tajh Boyd ran for 29 yards per game and won a bunch of games.

    Are you really trying to portray a 3 year starter with 1165 rushing yards and 26 rushing TD’s as a non running threat?

    You also realize that sacks count against these rushing numbers as well, correct?

    I'm aware. I'm also aware he started 40 games.

    Morris' 1st QB at SMU - 761 yds rushing. 2-10 record.

    Ben Hicks the last two years - minus 36 yds rushing. 5 & 7 wins

    Not saying I care one way or the other, I just believe he can be successful with or without a QB rushing for a ton of yards.

  • Look at what bringing in a 5* transfer QB did for Auburn. Stiddham helped take that team to a New Years 6 bowl and they will be a tough out this year now that he has a year of sec experience under him. Im all for bringing in Johnson but he will have to win the job and not have it handed to him

    Not the only area where they are loaded.

    Venables' potential 11 starters on defense could all end up being NFL draft picks.

    Their probable starting 4 defensive linemen will probably all be 2019 NFL 1st Round draft picks.

    When it was announced that Town was transferring here, someone on here even regurgitated some terrible 70s disco song, maybe the worst ever recorded that didn't involve Madonna or Lady Gaga..

    The first 3 games probably will be the most anticipated, exciting, and enlighten since the start of the Holtz era, and Petrino era! I cannot wait to see the CSU game here in CO!

    We will know what will be in store for the fans for the next 3 to 5 years with these overcoming games. Not only the offense...but our new defensive scheme! How wonderfully exciting!

    Two questions will be answered for sure....can we become the HUNH Spread offense that 50% of the fan base wants, and is convinced, will be effective enough to compete in our conference? And can we have a ball-hawking, turnover scoring, defense that wins in the SEC?

    Questions will be answered....and I can hardly wait!

    I’m not so sure there will be many questions answered. First year, with a lot of ?s on the roster. There weren’t a lot of “answers” standing out Bobby’s first season at Arkansas either.

    I’m just saying I would try not to get too high or too low about much of what you see this year. I’d like to see consistent effort from wire to wire, I think that is a thing to read into a first year but I digress.

    Now now, don't damper the spirits of Hogville's finest. Many of them have said over the past couple of years that we had plenty of talent to compete, Ole Big Boy just wasn't smart enough to play them. When he did play them, he was too stupid to play them in the right positions the experts of Hogville said. They said all we needed was a new coach and we would be instant winners. Now I have placed my bets on the sage advice of these experts who visit Hogville in their free time, sacrificing time with their family or golf clubs so they may enlighten those of us not smart enough to see the success that is coming. If you are now saying something different and this is not the year I will get rich off of the Hogs, then I am in for a heap of trouble.
