Nate Clouse@NateClouse

Vista Murrieta (CA) QB/ATH Coltin Gerhart tells me he'll take an official visit to #Nebraska this weekend. #Huskers http://bit.ly/1bY1QJS

 

Greg Biggins@GregBiggins

Norco (Calif) ATH and #ASU commit Coltin Gerhart will trip to #Nebraska this weekend. Still solid with the Sun Devils

 

Not sure if Nebraska is recruiting him at QB or Safety. His QB highlights are pretty solid. He's an impressive athlete as well.

 

His brother is former Stanford and current Vikings RB Toby Gerhart. Also of note, the Gerhart's and Martinez's are close friends. I believe Gerhart's father coached T-Mart a year or two.

Kid has some moxie to him. Very decisive on the read option with great vision like a running back. Great pocket awareness with a decent arm. Seems to have some speed and very smart runner in the open field. I was always waiting for him to get caught on the long runs but he just eeks out a touchdown.

Damn how is this kid only a 3 star? He highlights were very impressive, great throwing mechanics, probably comes from the baseball aspect, great runner and does a great job of keeping his head up while scrambling and throwing on the run. I have him ranked higher up than Flowers just based off those highlights.

This kid is the real deal. He seems to make good decisions with a good arm and good speed. He is so quick when he makes his cut. His is TMart-like but is more of a tough runner with a lot better hips and better throwing mechanics.

ASU would not be happy losing him, that's for sure. They are sold on this kid at QB, and they have a prestigious baseball program to offer as well. I'll be curious to see how this one shakes out.

This kid is a QB, not a safety.

 

His patience and poise inside the pocket. Moves the pocket, but keeps his eyes down field while doing so. Doesn't get impatient just to pull and run. Has an actual feel for the rush.

 

His patience on the zone read. He is willing to keep it to the last second to force that defender to be decisive so it makes his read that much easier. Also impressive how they ran a bit of a counter look out of a zone read play with him.

 

And he has a very quick, short release. When he decides to throw it, that thing gets out in a hurry.

 

I like his QB film. A lot.

Actually, asking him to play safety was one big reason why he committed to ASU - he realized there weren't too many 6-0 QBs in the NFL and though he'd have a better chance at Safety.

Already been commented on, but I find his running style EXTREMELY similar to Taylor. His arm and footwork are much better though. Would really like to get this guy.

His family is good friends with the Martinez family, his dad coached Taylor before he transferred to Corona Centennial. Their family also knows coach Fisher. Drake Martinez is his player host this weekend. I would think all these connections along with us offering him at QB put us in great position.

ASU has a fairly solid QB set up for the next few years. I thought he was going to be part of it, but they definitely need athletes in the secondary, that's for sure. Moving him to S makes sense if he's cool with it.

@DougHaller: ASU coach Todd Graham announces that reserve QB Michael Eubank has asked for his scholarship release and will transfer.

 

Wonder if this means they will let him play QB now?

I think I read that he feels his best chance to the NFL is as a safety. Not sure he has his heart set on being a QB. I also don't know if he has pro baseball aspirations. If so we have just the baseball coach for you!

Thats kind of what i was thinking. If wants to make NFL safety is much easier to make it than qb.

Yeah, but quarterbacks make a lot more money. And it's not like you can't play QB in college and safety in the pro's. NU has already had two drafted at safety and make NFL teams in Frost an Lord and I wouldn't be too shocked to see Taylor make it three.

Haha... The thought of T-magic playing safety while being allergic to contact makes me smile. Not trying to bash him by any means but I think he remains on the offensive side of the ball as WR and a KOR specialist

Allergic to contact? Not sure where you're getting that. It took two years for the coaches to convince him to avoid contact when possible. The guy was completely reckless early in his career. The number of hits he popped up from and injuries he played through make it pretty clear that he's tough as nails. He probably will stay on offense, but I wouldn't dismiss the possibility of him playing safety.

Allergic as in not good for him‚ case in point‚ this season. And no one is doubting his toughness but pretty sure it takes more than that to play safety in the NFL. Just don't think his inability to take a hit will translate well to safety where he's going to be administrating the contact.

The guy took more physical punishment than the vast majority of players ever have to deal with. To label him fragile because of a freak toe injury is ridiculous.

I have mixed feelings about a kid from California playing QB when everybody else wants him to play Saftey.

 

I don't mean to say this kid can't play, just nervous about our recruiting at the QB position.
