Prep school doesn't count towards your eligibility, so he'll be just like a freshman. Could play in 4 games and red-shirt and still have 4 years left or come in and win a spot and just play the 4 years.

Really liked his film. Film obviously shows you at your best and not sure how tough the prep competition was, but he looked like he had a good arm and was able to make plays with his feet.

Yeah, should be fine. Redshirt him his freshman year, bringing him in sparingly if we need to or if we're in a position where we can afford a few minor mistakes by a young QB. His first real year of eligibility will likely be Sampson's senior season, so he can be ready to compete for the starting spot his sophomore year.

I have no clue what the competition level was in his film. May try to dig up some HS HUDL highlights. Kid is VERY raw. Mechanics are not there yet. But, he looks very athletic and seems to be able to make all the throws. Glad we got another QB on the roster. Hard to have a summer camp with 2 guys. Not sure what they are going to do this Spring.

4 years and 30 pounds ago Drake was a Freshman QB at East Tennessee State. Other HS QBs I can think of are Ratkovich who was more of a runner and TE Karsjen who I don't think threw to many passes either. So unless we have someone on campus already to walk-on or a position player who could somewhat efficiently make a short term switch, we're looking at 2 spring QBs.
