Man, Sousa is a beast. I'd love to actually be able to see him step into his throws, it must be a laser. He's throwing off his back foot pretty much the whole time and still has a lot of zip on the ball. When #25 was in the backfield next to him he looked like a giant. He should be a good replacement after Devin.

I like his size. In three strides he goes 10 yards. He actually reminded me a little of a certain Buckeye from his H.S. film, but has more meat on him. He has a great arm with some funky mechanics (that will be fixed) but unfortunately for him, his passes kept hitting his receivers in the hands and it seemed to make it hard to catch the ball. Will be an absolute beast in the right system.

I think for any H.S. recruit who has watched the transformation of Denard, Shilling, Martin, Roh to name a few will easily see that RR and Barwis have got the formula to turn raw talent into refined talent.

He threw several passes that traveled 50 yards in the air with a tight spiral and were pretty much on target. Strong runner with above average speed.

This looks like a kid who could be a VERY good fit to star in RR's offense as a RS Junior assuming Gardner plays through 2013.

Wow. I've always thought this offer was suspect but that was some impressive film. The arm strength is definitely there, and the kid can already run the zone read. Had a nice pass on a screen too that looked a lot like the VS TD from last week.

He definitely looks like a project and someone who will probably redshirt but after watching that I'm excited he's coming to Michigan.

Wow. He's huge. Clearly a runner, and with some work his passing motion could be helped out a bunch. Even with his strange form he was putting every throw exactly where it needed to be. If only all of his receivers could catch!

He looked pretty good out there, sans the funky release at times. It seems like Lake Nona will have him prepared well for a zone-read scheme like ours. I've never been down on this guy, but it excites me that he brings more of a truckin', straight ahead runner to our quarterback position that we don't have right now. Think Jeremiah Masoli (without the burglary) after a few years in our system.
