So I was reading this article on Mgolicious and it got me thinking:
While it may be four years before another Michigan quarterback is taken in the NFL Draft, a potential recruiting tool could surface before then in the form of Pat White. White, as you all know, was Rodriguez's most important player at West Virginia. If White played well, the team played out of its mind. If White was injured, they often fell apart on offense, losing high profile games like the WVU-Pitt game at the end of 2007.
If White is able to go to the NFL and make it as a quarterback, or even a situational Wildcat hybrid quarterback thing, he is going to open doors for our quarterback recruiting. I know White is small so his success is doubtful, and I know that we are already pulling in some good quarterback talent even with the doubts about the transition to the pro level, but White will be able to help us gauge exactly where NFL team's thoughts are regarding spread quarterbacks and their NFL potential. Are they still banished to the wide receiver position, or can they actually be given a shot at playing quarterback? White, as well as guys like Dennis Dixon and TIm Tebow, will help to sort that out
