Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Here are some statistics about Texas HS QB's who signed with FBS colleges from 2001-14.
|Lettered at original college||220||69%|
|QB starter at original college||95||30%|
Over time, only about one-third of QB's that signed became starters at their original college. Another one-third transferred.
Here is a link to the article from the Houston Chronicle.
The article has statistical details for twelve Texas colleges and stories about individual QB's who transferred including Ryan Mallett.
In an attempt to distract you from the frustration of last night, here's a (brief) scouting report on the quarterbacks who have been confirmed or rumored to be in contact with Michigan about potentially receiving a scholarship offer for 2014. When I put all the names together, the list came out at the nice, round number of 10. Hopefully I didn't forget anyone important, but if I did, you can only blame yourself for not following me on Twitter and tossing out suggestions.
The list includes David Cornwell, Andrew Ford, Caleb Henderson, Coleman Key, DeShone Kizer, Michael O'Connor, Travis Smith, Wilton Speight, Chance Stewart, and Tyler Wiegers.
According to Scout and Rivals we have offered Texas QB/ATH Jalen Overstreet (6'3 205).
Looks like a kid who could start out at QB and move positions if QB doesn't work out, which would fit perfect considering we just landed Morris.
