We’ve tried bringing a few dual-threat qb’s as experiments with very limited results. And I know it takes repetition for the option to work fully. I just want to see us start to move the meter some and pick up business a little. I know Tracy Ham is a legend for a reason, but I’d love to see that type of balance come back home.

    My real preference is a dual threat qb, with a passing background but has experience running the option. I know “pipe dreams”...
    The idea in my original post was that this QB was not being offered a chance at most schools. He is a pocket passer. I stated - could a QB like this be thought the option if he were red shirt and then spend the next year refining his option skills. I'm not talking about changing our option team into a full out passing team. I'm still talking about 8-15 pass plays per game with a high percentage of completions and yards after the catch. As you know there have been times in the past when our option game struggled. Having a QB that could pass would back the defense off to let our option running game do its thing.

    *** If this guy doesn't fit the bill then so be it. I have no idea if he could become a hybrid option QB like Tracy Ham was. I just threw it out there as a thought.

    I just saw somewhere that the QB mentioned in the OP of this thread was 5'8 - 125 lbs as a senior. Maybe THATS why he's not getting any serious looks. And no he wouldn't work in our offense, cause he would die. If he were 5'8 - 175 it would be a different story.

    If the question is "Could GS use a 5'-8" 160lb QB who rushed for 10ypg as a senior and has zero college offers?" then the answer is NO.

    5'8? I thought I read in an article that he was 5'9 and 130lb. I also thought after a red shirt and freshmen year he could make 150lbs..

    I read he is looking at NAIA, D2 and D3 teams. I wish the best for him.

    I think I read ~5’6” 130 lbs as a Sophomore and 5’9” 160 as a Senior. But, looking at his pic, he doesn’t look like a runner.

    I agree with premise though and I’be been thinking the same. I think our offense can stand an infusion of arm-talent and a slight loss in running ability. I think they the two things can balance.

    In an option offense the QB has to be quick and if he keeps has to hit the hole in the LOS quickly, accelerate and run like hell. You cant sacrifice his running capabilities in an option offense. I just wanted an option QB that could pass 8-12 times, maybe 15 times with a high percentage of catches and yards after catch to make the opponents defense open up and let GSUs ground attack could run 360 - 400 yards per game
