I like our chances against LSU if it comes down to us and them. There is a long way to go and I'm sure OSU keeps the pressure on, but as far as LSU goes if they stumble at all next season there will be a giant cloud of uncertainty over Orgeron's future at LSU. I bet LSU faithful begin to get very restless if they don't go to Atlanta.... annnnd they aren't going to Atlanta next season.

The problem is...he has seen what Gundy can do with an offense.

Very true, but if he is looking towards the NFL...he needs to pay attention to how the scouts look at Gundy's QBs. There was a article a few days ago talking about overrated NFL prospects and there were a couple of scouts trashing Rudolph. The bottom-line is that they do not trust QBs that come out of Gundy's system.

Scout's Quote: "You have him in Round 2 and I just don't see it. He has a weak arm and plays in a bulls--t scheme. Bryce Petty all over again"

Refresh my memory of his connections...plz

Both 247Sports and ESPN has rated QB Grant Gunner the number 2 Pro-Style QB in the nation. He is from Houston, Texas and according to both services is a 4 Star QB with over 30 offers, several from the SEC including, Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Texas A&M, LSU and others. And yes he just received an offer from Ohio State and of course Texas has offered. Gunner is 6-foot-6, 212-pound and has thrown for 11,356 yards and 142 touchdowns in three seasons at St. Pius X High School and is already one of the most recruited QBís out of Texas.

I do expect that he is a heavy lean to Arkansas since his father, Chris and mother, Julie earned degrees from Arkansas. And his Grandfather Jim Price played linebacker for the Hogsí 1964 national championship team.

He and his father visited Fayetteville for last yearís spring game.

We should expect good things to happen this year and in the future for our Razorbacks.

QB has been the weak link to lsu since Bert Jones day.  They need him badly whether they know it or not

OSU signs top qbs.  I'm sure Urb wants him but he's not really a NEED like at lsu.

Sounds like he'd be a perfect fit for bama and more talented than most qbs at bama since the early 1990s

Okie St?  Gunnel's ranking would move okie st up with the big boys in final rankings

Hogs?  Morris is in a bad position.  Until a couple leave, he has a roster full of young qbs.  Just added 2 who will likely rs.  Because of Arkansas connections, the Hogs must get Gunnel have started. Gunnel might look at the roster and not see an opening for playing time.  Morris will catch heat for not closing the deal.   

Another issue is the qb from Morrilton.  Because he's instate he'll be seen as a must get also.

Watching this staff juggle numbers and recruit more to the position is going to be a long drawn out soap opera in the making

SMDH. Any QB of Gunnell's caliber will not be scared of competition.

I really don't see him going to LSU. No good QB worth a darn wants to go there. They all know it.

I have no clue who you are talking about from Morrilton as I don't see any QB in the Hooten's top 10. Darius Powers in Fayetteville is the highest ranked instate QB at no. 15.

LSU has signed QBís higher ranked than Gunnell and always screw them up.
The Ohio State I donít see the appeal for Gunnell. Urban likes runners. But maybe.
Ok St doesnít recruit that well. Adding just Gunnell just there normal ranking would land them about 20th. Not sure that is big boys. But they have had success with QBís.
Arkansas I love this myth that we are loaded at QB. Only one kid on the roster was a 4 star in every site and most expect him to transfer. Numbers donít equal depth.

The QB from Morrilton is a Sophomore so he would be part of the 2020 recruiting class. Gunnell is a 2019 recruit.

Would you rank LSU, Ohio St., and Oklahoma State all 3 ahead of us?

Careful...You can get blasted for even suggesting a recruit with two generations of hog blood in his veins, plus being  photographed in Arkansas gear,  might 'consider' going to Okie State or anywhere else.   Especially if it was suggested by an Aggie writer.  Believe me, I know from experience.

We have as good a chance as anybody. It won't be Aggie or Horn. It's coming down to Arkansas, LSU, and probably a third contender for his services.

we will be in that top 3 (imo). The family connections. The texas connections. The friendship with Mike Woods. The offense. The lack of a bonafide beast at QB here. It's on and poppin, y'all. We have as good a chance as anybody. It won't be Aggie or Horn. It's coming down to Arkansas, LSU, and probably a third contender for his services.

I was told before he committed to aTm last year that there was an interest in Okie Lite,I wouldn't be surprised to see them in the top 3. We need to get him on campus again, and let it go from there.

No matter where he goes, we will be in his top 2-3... seems to always be that way on here

Why would he go to Ohio State? Meyer doesn't coach pro-style QBs like Grant. And LSU? What a mess for a QB.

Agreed, this kid needs us to make his top 3.

Any chance we can get he NCAA to make that mandatory? If so after Iím done we will have top 5 class

Yah, I don't get. I can't see any reason why a kid would want to play at a top 10 program with 8 championships, 7 Heiman winners and 85 all-Americans for the winningest power 5 coach in the nation. Kid must be insane to even consider them...

I agree it is not a great fit for Meyer's offensive system, but if he likes a player, you have to consider him a credible threat. Dude can recruit.

Is the Morris system the best suited to highlight the skills of a pro-style QB?

I think our chances of getting him improved greatly after the Morris hire. This offense is suited for his skill set and he know this I'm sure. People speculate and I do believe okie lite and LSwho are legit contenders but if we can add a Treylon Burkes/Hudson Henry our chances skyrocket. Idc that he did not use the TE position at SMU as much he has still sent a TE to the league. If you can get open in this offense you will get the ball thrown to you. I think our chances are dying as is, but add some elite targets were going to be hard to pass up. I know he started to waiver after Jumbo come aboard but the school I remember getting his attention was us at that point and time. Maybe things changed but I doubt it.

He's more of a pocket passer for sure, but I don't know if he would deem himself a pro-style QB.  He was not at all interested in Enos's offense which was as pro style friendly as you could get.  I think he is a pocket passer who is looking for a spread offense.  Hell the NFL is going to more of these spread principles anyways.  He committed to TAMU under Sumlin and is apparently interested in Arkansas and Okie St among others.  I would guess he is after something more along the lines of what he's used to in the Texas HS ranks.

It wasn't the Enos offense that turned Grant off, it was Enos himself.

good insight. thanks for the post. Tell me, am I wrong to think Arkansas, LSU, and a 3rd player perhaps, will lead  for his services?

I have heard that as well. In fact, some of the recruiting gurus seem to have backed off of their statements about his Arkansas interest. I am not sure that Grant has even scheduled a campus visit yet. I know that we are supposed to have a big weekend with juniors upcoming but I havenít seen anything that has said that he would be a part of that.

I've heard they want him up for a practice and a weekend when there are fewer recruits, thus able to show more "love".

TBH I am not sure where Arkansas is on the list.  I know its still there.  Okie light has always been high on the list as they were the 1st school to really show interest.  LSU is up at the top despite what people here say.    I just hope the Ohio St stuff is just rumors.  Coaches need to get him on campus with the other big name targets and let fly.

Careful...You can get blasted for even suggesting a recruit with two generations of hog blood in his veins, plus being  photographed in Arkansas gear,  might 'consider' going to Okie State or anywhere else.   Especially if it was suggested by an Aggie writer.  Believe me, I know from experience.

I am sure this will get me a few more smites from certain posters.

I think KJ Jefferson may be better for us in the long run. I watched a few clips and he's got a cannon and he can move

I would personally be thrilled with either.  I think both are big-time players, just with different styles.

They have improved but we would still crush them on facilities. Get Grant on campus and drive down there a couple times please, lots of love yada yada.

We've offered 8 QB's so far, so I would say no. Some may only think of one, but those that know recruiting know better than to do that.

Once I watched film of Jefferson I automatically wanted him more than Gunnell. Gunnell may be more exciting in February and better for class rank but for the next several years I think Jefferson would be better for us. Big arm, can run although he's no Michael Vick he can move. And he looks to be solidly built, which is big for being able to take hits from SEC defenders. I really like Jefferson, but obviously would be thrilled with Gunnell.

I think we need a dual threat guy

Agreed on all points. Would be excited either way and both great options. Prefer Jefferson at first look (with zero football coaching experience of course lol).
