      Depends on perspective. Hendrix is the only outstanding offer isn't he?

      ND better be reaching if they're are going to fill two QB slots this year. I'd expect a disparity in talent level if two are taken.

      ND watched Thomas throw and didn't offer. Montana opted to UW early in the week. If ND was desparate wouldn't they have offered Thomas? There were 6-8 other names mentioned during May.

      Rees, Rettig, Massa, and Robinson are coming to camp to make their claim. There could be other QB campers. Doesn't it make sense to study them in camp then watch their senior year for progress?

        Not trying to knock these kids. Rettig is really the only QB ive seen so i cant say what there potential level is. Just seems this years QB class seems very weak. Hopefully the camp will bring out the best in these kids and at least come away with a reliable QB who can play back up. Montana, Thomas, and Gardner were really the only QB's i liked this year so maybe im just put off by the rest of the quarterbacks.

          It doesn't read as a knock. The services have commented that it is a thin QB class. There's at least two of them Massa and I think Robinson that missed most of last season due to injuries. So they're lagging in the stat department that generates early offers. They may have to wait to until fall to show they can make a cut and throw off that knee/ankle and take a hit.

          On the other hand with a thin class how long to you gamble on waiting.

          Do you wait for Hendrix to make up his mind or do you offer anyway?

            Qtrbk. status

            IMO, we wait on Hendrix and if unsuccessful in getting him, we forgo a qtrbk. for the 10 class. Next year, we should have lots of opportunity for a 4 or 5*...that is, if we don't piddle around on the offers.

              CAN'T miss QB two classes in a row. Last year when we missed we said "wait until next year." Next year is not guaranteed. We need one at least.

              What happens if Clausen leaves after this year, then crist gets hurt?

              Then this board goes into meltdown mode on "why didn't we take another QB?"

                You need another scholarship QB. This is not enitrely about who has got next after Crist, this is also about having a reliable third and even fourth string quarterback on the roster. We want to be a program that reloads not one that has to replace.

                    Or tumble in flames.

                    Do you really want to bank Notre Dame football on a nonscholarship player?

                    Any argument that he is good just because of his dad is false. Children of stars rarely amount to what their parents have.


                    I personally would rather never know what Montana can do. He has the chance to prove he is worthy of playing time everyday in practice. There is a reason is isnt on scholarship. People keep saying he will be our next Rudy, but let's be realistic people. How many nonscholarship players in college football make a big impact?

                    How many people would want a non scholarship QB starting?

                    People only like him because of his father. He is not Joe.

                      Amen.

                      Let's be. I love the movie, "Rudy". Classic story of triumph over adversity. That said, who here would start a Ruettiger caliber athlete over Ethan Johnson?

                      Too hypothetical, okay there's a Rudy on the team now, Special Teams uber athlete Mike Anello. Now Anello is listed as CB. Show of hands as to who would start him ahead of McNeill, Walls, Gray, Blanton, Slaughter, Banks, and probably half the safeties? If all of them went down, I could see a RB or WR being moved to CB ahead of Anello starting there.

                      Nate may improve his game but based upon the Spring Game he's got a long way to go.

                          Bill Rees is a star as an NFL scout, so what's your point? Tommy can't be good?

                            If your post is about the post preceding yours, http://www.irishenvy.com/forums/2010...tml#post291069

                            I believe they were talking about the Montana's, father and son, not the Rees family. I don't think Rees was discussed past the 3rd post in this thread. I don't think anybody know anything about him other than the info in the opening post.

                              I Heard Rees may be in line for an offer very soon. Not positive, but just what I heard.

                                  sounds like his offer is almsot official. As well as 3 MAC offers, he also has an offer from Tennessee and an offer from Stanford. My dead grandma also received her offer from Stanford today

Now, following an outstanding camp performance, they have extended a scholarship offer to Tommy Rees of Lake Forest, Ill.

                                          Here's an OLD article 5/29/09


                                          5/29/08 Central Michigan offers QB Tommy Rees posted by Kyle Warber

                                          Tommy Rees dad is Bill Rees former Cleveland Brown Director of Player Personnel and former UCLA coach. Among players evaluated by Rees is a QB named Brady Quinn.

                                          He could be an athletic pocket passer. He can move around and get out of trouble. He is a very accurate passer with arm ability. He can throw with touch and velocity and can throw deep. A college coach must ask: 'Does he fit into what we are doing?
                                          Apparently Charlie Weis sees Rees fitting into his offense!

                                          Tommy would like an offer from UCLA ("Dream School") where his dad coached. He's comfortable staying in the Midwest playing for a MAC school but wants to play with the big dogs.

                                          Tommy Rees on the MAC and BCS conferences:
                                          The MAC is a great conference. They've produced a lot of great quarterbacks. But I also feel I have the ability and competitive drive to play in a BCS conference. I don't doubt it at all.

                                                      I hope you're not a Stanford fan. It sounds like you are, but then again I don't speak jibberish so who knows?

                                                      But the update on Rees, per ISD, is that he has us in his top 3, with Stanford and Tennessee, and he's going to announce sometime later this week. Considering he just camped with us in order to get the offer, I'd say ND looks very good here, and our QB depth numbers will be solid again...

                                                                        2 things I love here:

                                                                        1. Yes, he's not a high-profile recruit. But he gives us depth at a position that was needing it after we didn't get anybody last year. Hendrix is a stud, and this kid is great insurance and could turn out to be a stud as well, you never know. And he came to camp and earned his scholly. Even better, he's a competitor, not scared to compete for his spot. He could have gone to Tennessee as the only QB, but he is taking the tougher road. Kudos.

                                                                        2. Tennessee fans are gripping right now over their lack of a QB. QB after QB has turned them down. Unless someone flips, their QB is going to be like a 2 star or something! Just listening to them bitch is quite funny...

                                                                                          The biggest thing I'm not that excited about is taking two QBs in what appears to be a terrible QB class. It might scare away a great QB next year. And since this year was bad, the law of averages would suggest that next season will be much better. Taking two QBs in a good year really helps your chances of finding a stud than taking two QBs in a down year.

                                                                                          The other thing I'm a little disappointed by is that the staff didn't go after a player that provides our roster with a different dimension. Why not grab a QB who can? -- somebody who could have a few plays in the playbook. This also doesn't seem like a player who can play another position if he's not needed at QB.

                                                                                          All that being said, I do like taking good players from Illinois.

                                                                                                    The biggest thing I'm not that excited about is taking two QBs in what appears to be a terrible QB class. It might scare away a great QB next year. And since this year was bad, the law of averages would suggest that next season will be much better. Taking two QBs in a good year really helps your chances of finding a stud than taking two QBs in a down year.

                                                                                                    The other thing I'm a little disappointed by is that the staff didn't go after a player that provides our roster with a different dimension. Why not grab a QB who can? -- somebody who could have a few plays in the playbook. This also doesn't seem like a player who can play another position if he's not needed at QB.

                                                                                                    All that being said, I do like taking good players from Illinois.

                                                                                                    First, I think this has been labeled a down year for quaterbacks just because they are just few and far between. In the Clausen class, there were some 8 QBs in the top 150. Not lack of skill, just lack of numbers.

                                                                                                    As for the wrinkle thing, Charle's playbook is a Pro Style, fling the sucker around. If you bring in a dual threat that makes up for a lack of arm with his legs, then there are playbook LIMITATIONS, not expansions. Look at DJ... If a QB can't fling a ball 30 plus yards with accuracy, safeties cheat up and the run game is that much more difficult, even if you are running the midline.
