Just out of curiosity, which Forcier brother is largely regarded as the most talented?
if you seek an image of the most Wisconsin OL ever, enter here
Jason, 3*, #15 dual-threat
Chris, 4*, #7 dual-threat
Tate, 4* #5 dual-threat
This, of course, is going off scouting rankings.
Wasn't Chris in a deeper class?
Yeah, pretty much. Tyrod Taylor is pretty good and will be a 3rd year starter for Va Tech, Aaron Corp actually was 2nd on depth chart at USC at one point and is a strong contender for starting, Josh Nesbitt is tearing it up for Georgia Tech, and Stephen Garcia and Willy Korn will most likely be starting for their respective teams.
Well, if you look at Rivals, Tate. If you look at Scout, they were really, really, really high on Jason for whatever reason. Who knows.
Well, Jason was part of that horribly overrated 2005 class, so it's hard to take the recruiting rankings of that class seriously. Man that 2005 class was such a bust.
Well, Chris and Tate were both rated 5.9 by Rivals and Jason was a 5.6. Looking at their overall rank out of California in their respective years, Chris and Tate were ranked 17 and 18. Chris has 2-3 inches on Tate, which probably means Tate was dinged a little by the recruiting services.
What does this all mean? I have no clue.
The best one is the one that plays for Michigan.
I heard, not by ranking/stats, etc.. That Tate is the most talented because he works the hardest. His brothers didnt work on mechanics. Tate loves to work on mechanics because he wants a smooth release. Tate is just the smallest. But hes stil only 18, so maybe he'll grow an inch or 2.
Yeah, we'll I heard that Santa Claus is real and that the tooth fairy will put $10 under my pillow for the next tooth I lose. It's amazing what stuff you hear nowadays; I'd love to see some info/evidence of Jason and Chris not working on their mechanics and supposedly "not working hard."
I believe I said, "Tate works HARDER".
Also, you don't believe this because why? Because you didn't read the article? Well, sorry I post what I heard, ya don't got to be 'that guy' and critisize what I said. Michigan fans like you are really ignorant. Thats def one thing I learned about these blogs. People say Michigan fans are respectful bla bla.. There not.
I believe you said "Tate works the hardest," and that you also said his brothers don't work on mechanics, which no one believes except you.
Naturally, your response will have everything to do with the unimportance of semantics and nothing to do with the actual important part of what I said.
I believe it is in the interview with Tate's highschool coach with either Sam Webb or the big show guys...now that I am thinking about it I really do think it is the big show, where he (the coach that is) says that the older brothers think that Tate has the most talent out of the three fwiw.
What else are they going to say when asked? "Uh, no, I think I'm the most talented one."
What if Tate has to work harder at mechanics because Jason and Chris were 15x the natural talent he is?
CONSIDER YOUR MIND BLOWN
was that supposed to blow my mind too? cause like, man...
Well, I'm going to assume they all went to the same high school and played the same opponents. (This is for the junior year stats on each rivals page) If you look at the completion percentage Tate is the best of the three, if you look at the rushing yards, which is important in our offense, Tate is right there with Jason and ahead of Chris. The same with rushing touchdowns, right up there with Jason and ahead of Chris. I while Chris had 33 touchdowns his junior year, Tate had a respectable 21 with only 5 interceptions. So, I guess you could could say that Tate is a better passer since he has a better completion percentage and a better runner since he has a better yards per run (11.1). I'm sure that I will get some people telling me it doesn't work this way, but when you have a better completion percentage and yards per rush all you have to do is pass more and rush more to surpass the numbers your brothers put up and be considered better than them.
Tate went to a different school than Jason and Chris. O, and both of them said Tate is the better of the 3.
And don't forget that Jason played at Mater Dei before he transferred his senior year, so they really all played at separate high schools more or less.
Jason Forcier - St. Augustine HS
Chris Forcier - St. Augustine HS
Tate Forcier - Scripps Ranch HS
Tate was also home-schooled and had a QB tutor.
I don't how there high schools fall into sections in the state.
Tate wasn't home schooled, he was charter schooled. And for the record, it was because he was failing out of normal school.
He says he was home-schooled here. . .
about a quarter of the way through.
It was a charter school, this has been brought up a million times. He was misquoted, he said it was "like being homeschooled"
Ah, sorry, I must've missed those million times. Although sounds like it's pretty well known that I'm wrong, so I retract my comment and all that.
normal school is hard
