On the surface it may seem strange, but if you look at it from the kid's pov, he gets a chance to play in the Big Ten, gets a great, free and prestigious education and maybe he thinks he can beat Alviti out for a starting job. It's great to be a teenager with all the confidence in the world.

I don't know either player at all, but I do remember at that age I thought I was better than a lot of guys who were deemed better than me. And sometimes I was right.

Finally, Northwestern has shown that it doesn't mind playing more than one QB in the same game.

Seems like a pretty good move to me, long view.

That's a good comparison but I think he has more upside. I have seen him play a couple of games this year and he is a raw talent. He will need to bulk up and work on his accuracy but he has 4.3 speed, a big arm, and good pocket presence. This was his first year starting at the varsity level. I still think his best bet to make the nfl will be as a WR but we will see how much he improves at QB in the next 4-5 years

I thought it was Treadwell who had Ole Miss on his list.

According to ESPN, Ole Miss is indeed in Augusta's top 3:

Ok. Augusta's top 3 are 1.Mizzou 2. MSU 3. Ole Miss. Illinois is 4th. But he is still taking his official visit in January.

This per the ESPN article.

The Rivals article has a quote from Josh saying he's eliminated Mississippi. Guess it's a matter of which one you want to believe.

Depending on numbers I wonder if we don't take a 2nd QB in this class? I think close to signing day we may end up offering Todd Porter after his solid senior year.

Again, just my speculation based on if the numbers allow it.

Well this is interesting because he speaks very highly of Mississippi in the ESPN article.

Confusing to say the least. The ESPN article is older than the Rivals one, so maybe something changed?

Josh visited Ole Miss last weekend. That's probably what caused them to jump ahead of the Illini.

I've noticed that some of the guys visited on 11/30, while some visited on 12/1. Are official visits one day events?

Gotta question broseph. With Petty and now Finney at safety (maybe Finney will be DB I don't know), does this mean they are looking to move Hull back to WR?
