Yeah, but if by some fluke my son was the #1 QB prospect in the nation, the only way he could possibly have any of my genes would be in smarts.
Otherwise, the question should be rephrased "If the milkman's son was the #1 QB prospect..."
I think most of the major ones have been said....
is they good get a half decent QB... with the defenses Bama and LSU normally have, it would be scary...
Stanford to the education, Georgia seems a good place..... USC if it wasn't run by such a douche of a head coach.....
and they can still study. They are not all stupid fucking jocks that don't study and screw hot chicks all day. Some are actually rather intelligent people that actually choose to learn and better themselves.
Alabama has a terrible record at developing QB's. Here are the QB's they've had drafted in the past 25 years with round:
Greg McElroy-round 7
Brodie Croyle-round 3
Jay Barker-round 5
Mike Shula-round 12
They have a talent for developing almost every position other than QB.
FSU, Oklahoma, or Texas.....They always have great quarterbacks and probably a shoe in to the NFL....plus the coeds
To die in ann arbor is redundant
Please explain why Vince Young made a smart decision to not also get an education. I'll hang up and listen.
If I raise the kid correctly, he will see value in an education and do it on his own. If he doesn't see the value, then I will have failed as a parent.

I like it when someone has put together a great game plan.
Vince Young went to Texas and managed to stay eligible while he was there. Doesn't that kind of hurt your argument about sending the kid to a great academic school?
Nice strawman. I used him as an example for the principle, not a specific example. Regardless, if he had a degree, he'd get a job somewhere based on name alone. And I'm not talking McDonald's.
1.) If I'm raising him, he would have worried about classroom work, or he wouldn't have sniffed the football field long enough to become the #1 QB recruit in the nation.
2.) Stanford as a first choice. Texas as a second. Georgia as a third.
Unless Brian Kelly gets himself fired or retires from Notre Dame. Then they move in front of Texas.
Oregon, they have some fine ass women and get some of that Nike money
Is your kid black?
You forgot the ????? Profit
Rogue Leader= Obese coward who didn't attend MSU and has no college degree
Mariota isn't black
Washington State. In a few years, Leach's guys will be in place and it will be a QB's dream system.
Great program? Lol. Stanford is an ok program, but happens to be in a stretch where they have good teams because Harbaugh built them up. Stanford is irrelevant and no one cares about them.
No doubt. Stanford's success was total Luck....amiright?

His career can end in college or the pros in an instant. Getting a solid education is important so he has something to fall back on if that happens.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
If someone has a chance to be a first round pick, they should go. You can always go back to school worst comes to worst as well.

I would steer my kid toward a mid level program and a school with outstanding academics. This would give him an opportunity to start from Day 1 and become a cornerstone rather than just another five star.
Virginia is at the top of that list, followed by UCLA and Northwestern. I'd also get him thinking about UNC and Illinois.
Georgia started Stafford as a true frosh and Murray as a rs frosh fwiw.
my kid is currently on athletic scholarship at the University of Tennessee after turning down Michigan State to be closer to Mom and Pop (and siblings)
I think you have to count that in. Just because my boy is going to be the top rated QB in the class of 2026, that doesnt guarantee that Im going to have the money to travel across the country to see him play every week. I think keeping a kid close to home matters. (just ask the Arnetts) And Im going to be an old duffer when he hit college.
(this will all be rendered moot after my middle kid signs the recording contract, and makes travel money a non-issue)
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
Virginia or Northwestern. UCLA or Washington if I make it to the west coast.
