Thinking this is our guy.

Yep

 

What makes you guys think he jumps on our offer rather then one from VaTech, Michigan, or LSU? I'm not saying you guys are wrong, just curious is all. Looks like he is headed to Michigan's spring game, Vandy's spring game and Notre Dame's Jr. Day. I hope we grab him though!

I think there are a lot of good QBs, but I really like what I've seen from this guy's film. Given we didn't take any QB this year, maybe we can take this guy and one of the good in-state QBs (like Ellsworth).

Honestly, I have no idea. But I think we're going to be after him hard. I get the feeling Langsdorf had Guarantano at the top of his list but that's probably a long shot. This is a midwestern kid who we can really jump on and sell him on being the top QB on our list after not taking a QB for 2015 and only having more dual-threat guys ahead of him. Plus Langsdorf can sell his NFL resume (though Harbaugh can as well to some extent).

 

Michigan will definitely have his interest but they also have some other big fish they're after. Plus they took a QB last year and another two years ago, though none are as highly-rated. I don't think LSU is as much of a threat as they already have a four-star DTQB committed for 2016 and a four-star DTQB from 2014. Plus being farther from home. VaTech also already has a QB committed for 2016 though not as highly-rated. But they just signed a four-star QB and took three QBs in 2014.

Just watched his film. First off, wow what a player. Great arm, strength, composure, pocket presence, touch. Dang good passer, but don't let that fool you. He's a long strider that can make defenses pay, isn't going to juke/blow by people but keeps them honest. I would love to have this kid as our QB.

Michigan will be tough to beat. But if we get him here for the spring game and maybe back for a junior day or QB camp we would have a good shot.

I remember Riley saying their strategy for recruiting a QB in 2016 will be to make a single offer to their top guy and go full-court press for his commitment. If that offer does not pan out, then they will make three offers to their second tier group and let the prospects know it will be first come, first serve. If this is their strategy playing out, does that mean Peters is their #1 Overall QB recruit (not Guarantano), and prospects like Zeb Noland are making up the second tier?

So soon after his offer, that seems optimistic. And typically, getting a QB one year does not lower your chances of getting a guy the next year.

 

That doesn't sound like the best strategy to be honest, TTRR.

It is not like we are not in contact with other QB's. We are still actively talking/getting some to visit (Noland) for example will visit this spring. Just doesn't sound like we will formally offer right away.

With coaching changes there are bound to be changes in philosophies and what they want in certain positions. Obviously this is what Riley wants so I would love to have this kid at Nebraska. He knows what he wants much better than I do.

I guess I don't follow you. Guarantano already had an offer from the previous staff and it was pretty widely speculated that's who Langsdorf was in New Jersey visiting in January. Thus, we wouldn't necessarily have seen a new offer announcement from Guarantano because he already had an offer. But there were several reports that Langsdorf was interested in him. So that would fit your description that it didn't work out with our #1 target so now we're moving on to the next set.

Peters reminds me a lot of Sean Mannion with his throwing mechanics and play style.

Were you making a joke with this comment?

 

 

No, I meant Harbaugh obviously has the NFL experience though not as a QB coach.

Not to be an ass but Michigan landed a top 5 QB this last year, Zach Gentry. He was the #105 recruit on Rivals and was committed to Texas before flipping to Michigan.

Even better for us. I had the 247 rankings handy so that's what I was going off of. He was "only" a three-star on 247.

Yes it is. Riley and Langsdorf can also legitimately say that he'd be their QB for the future as well.

Jim Harbaugh has more years as a QB coach in the NFL than Langsdorf.

 

Plus I would say his success at Stanford with Andrew Luck and his 3 NFC title game appearances with Kaepernick, not to mention his playing days is a far better resume than Langsdorf's 3 seasons in New Orleans as a QC coach and assistant WR coach and his 1 year as a QB coach.

 

But that's just me. And I hope this kid pick Nebraska.

My point was Langsdorf will be his OC here and QB coach. He was also a QB coach in the NFL last year. Harbaugh was a head coach in the NFL and is the head coach at Michigan. He's also been the offensive coordinator and works with QBs during that time but wasn't and won't be working as closely to the quarterbacks because of all his other responsibilities. I wasn't trying to downplay Harbaugh's accomplishments.

Okay. But when you say, "to some extent", that to me says you think Langsdorf has some greater amount of pull than Harbaugh and that just isn't true in any extent.

I know Guarantano was receiving attention from Langsdorf, but Peters has been the only QB offer this staff has made, as you mentioned Guarantano's offer came from the old staff. Guarantano could have been there #1 QB recruit but that ship sailed, so they are moving to their second tier guys already. However, without additional offers, it makes me wonder if Peters is their #1 overall who they think they can land, and Guarantano could have been but never showed enough interest for them to heavily pursue. Maybe it is a 1A vs 1B type of situation, with Peters being the only one of the two that showed interest removing Guarantano from the conversation.

I don't think you can say that the new staff didn't offer him. It's entirely possible that there just wasn't an announcement because he already had an offer from Nebraska. Langsdorf could have told him he still had an offer and we wanted him but he might not have gone around telling people he got offered by Nebraska again. Especially if he wasn't that interested.

 

If he was the first QB Langsdorf went to visit, I think that say all you need to know. Really, there's not way Langsdorf went all the way to New Jersey and didn't offer him.

Dang. Was hoping he'd hover around the back end of the Top 247/300 lists. Probably going to keep getting more looks.

 

But this staff are such great recruiters we should be in good shape.

I think it's a little early to call them great recruiters. So far our 3 commits for 2016 were secured by the previous coaching staff.

 

And before anyone says how they saved the 2015 class, it doesn't make them great. Especially since the one guy that was responsible for almost half of the commits is no longer coaching for us.

Harbaugh has one year of QC experience, the rest have been HC gigs. I'll give him credit for squeezing talent out of players, but developing QBs is not a claim I'd automatically annoint him with. Throw out Luck and I'll shoot back Kaepernick - who has progressively become worse.

High four-star QB KJ Costello is down to Stanford, USC and Michigan and will be deciding sooner rather than later.

 

Unfortunately it's not looking really good for Michigan but he hasn't visited since Harbuagh was hired. If he picks Michigan, that would be huge for us here.

Stranger things have happened, but I expect him to make the call for SC.

Looks that way unless something changes. It sucks because he'd have a great chance of playing early at Nebraska.

That sounds familiar.... The question is how many guys are going to pass up on the sweet opportunity before we find the guy.

Said that he likes our offense and likes that our quarterbacks coach has NFL experience.

 

Looking forward to seeing how the staff works and looking around campus when he visits for the spring game.
