We haven’t even hit the FBS portal window and there are already some intriguing FCS and grad transfer QBs entered. Here are some that intrigue me.
QB Jeff Sims, Georgia Tech — Back home to Florida for the former 4 star? Who knows? QB recruits aren’t like others where they go back home, they go where they fit.
QB Hudson Card, Texas — He waited long enough at Texas and has shown enough talent to be a fit at Power Five. Doesn’t he seem like a Notre Dame kid?
QB Cade McNamara, Michigan — Like Card, he’s another kid who has handled things with class. I can see a Big Ten move here so keep an eye on Iowa or Illinois but what about Josh Gattis down at Miami as well?
QB Davis Brin, Tulsa — Probably the least know name on the QB elite list he would be amazing at TCU or perhaps Oklahoma State.
QB Connor Bazelak, Indiana — After stints at Missouri and Indiana he will probably take a step down to Group of Five and a place like Cincinnatti would be good to provide some leadership for the new coach.
QB Luke Altmyer, Ole Miss — A move from Ole Miss to Mississippi State? It would be fun to see.
QB Alex Padilla, Iowa — He won’t be that hot a name in the portal because he didn’t get to show much at Iowa but the Colorado native would be good at Colorado State or another Group of Five school in the Mountain West.
QB Paul Tyson, Arizona State — The former Alabama QB will likely land back home with Troy or UAB. Group of Five is the sweet spot here.
QB Brett Gabbert, Miami (Ohio) — Illinois has a good connection with him but Missouri will probably be interested as he’s from St. Louis and his brother Blaine was a star there.
