They have proven they can make some people pretty good QBs (Dixon, Guy who no longer plays QB because he decided to steal computers), and they currently don't have much depth there, can't say it's a bad choice on the kids part if he also likes the school and coaching staff.

This just "holds his spot." Oregon is pretty picky about when they let recruits commit. He hasn't officially committed, in their eyes, because he hasn't visited. 

Since Jeremiah Masoli is gone, there's a pretty good opportunity to play soon, too.

Wasn't Masoli gone after this fall anyway, had he not forgone his senior year to go pro in crime?

Oregon did bring in a pretty solid QB last fall in Bryan Bennett, who was a 4-star.  He's listed as a pro-style QB, but reports a 4.6 40.  He'll be a true frosh this fall, and will likely get thrown into the fire now that Masoli's gone.

Well i think we most likely get Marquise Williams now, but now Oregon is out of the running for Hundley now we might have a better shot now too but seems like Williams will go blue instead of hundley. Either way they both are solid dual-threat QBs

I'm with Magnus here. You'll probably see a similar guy to Conelius Jones (who can switch positions down the line), or even Kevin Sousa. He's said many times he'd love a Michigan offer, and he's done pretty well at camps. The offers haven't come yet though.

UNC already have a QB commited, Williams likes RR, but still you're right about UNC being the team to beat thou. I agree with Magnus on that we might score on a QB prospect with no offer yet. One name that comes to mind is Kevin Sousa, i dunno who else.
