I had a 32 back in 1998, best friend had a 35.

I got offered about 12k/year to go to UM (woulda been a walk-on to the tennis team, so that may have factored in.. ) Nothing that would blow me away, but not average HS student either..

I do believe the scale has since changed.

That doesn't mean that a 30 is a bad score. Bravo, on taking the opportunity to  brag about your score, btw. I'll take the same opportunity and mention that I got a 31 when I took the ACT in 1990 and that put me in the top 1% of all who sat for that exam. That is why I think a 30 is probably a pretty good score.

Given that this is a Michigan blog and many of us are alums, a pretty high percentage of MGoPosters had an ACT above 30.  Which means that unless the scale has changed since I took the ACT in 1978, then it's a score that will get you into UM under normal circumstances.  Therefore, pretty darn good.

Is there a category for scouts for a Roll Out passer?

He has good size, decent wheels and is tough to bring down. Glad he's willing to walk on. Welcome!

Kid is really smart, made the good, safe passes.  Tucked it under and ran when he needed to and can change directions pretty good for a QB his size.  Having trouble understanding why he's a walk on.  Curious to know who else had offered him.  Seems really solid, just not flashy.

I'll ask too, and maybe it's just my untrained football eye, but why wouldn't a big kid like this at a winning program even get some MACtion love?

 

The ball got there on time with touch, and when under pressure made the right throw. 

 

I didn't see a ton of zip and it looked like he threw off balance a lot, but hell...it got there.

 

A perfect walk-on QB I guess?

Word is he had some D2 offers.  Was a player that just wasn't sure if he wanted to play college football for his career and being at CC didn't get him a lot of exposure with that "welcome back Kotter" offense.  Comes from a pretty smart family and was thinking academics all the time.   When the Michigan coaches contacted him I guess he thought about the opportunity.  According to Twitter he was with Morris, Wangler, and Shellman all day up in A2

.....that APR is about to go up a little bit more. And I'm not talking refinance rates either.

Looks like he can sling it around pretty well. Good height, smart kid, doesn't take up a scholly.....like it.

big, smart, aggressive player.  Absolutely no training outside of the school program which isn't really a passing team....  Moores might really bloom with some coaching and may prove to be an asset to the QB squad and who knows - might save our keesters in the future if one of the starters gets banged up.  Nice find Borges.

Hopefully we never see him in a game, as the other QBs are obviously better prospects and have more upside, but this is a solid get to have on your team without giving up a scholarship.

Nice pick up as a back up option. Looks like he has a good arm and a good head on his shoulders. Plus he had nice touch on the screen pass at 4:35 of the video, not many high school kids have an option besides THROW IT AS HARD AS POSSIBLE!!!
