Rivals had him as 16th best QB in 2010. ESPN had him at 91st in 2010. He could be good, but a ranking system alone might not be enough to jump on the bandwagon. Id like to see more of his stats. Nice offseason grab.

For some reason, the super high ranked players haven't seemed to work for Troy lately. We had a guy at corner a year or two ago that was the #2 corner (ESPN, #6 on Rivals) from 2011 I believe. He was second string most of the season. We had Josh Jarboe (#3 WR on ESPN from 2007 or 2008) who did little at Troy but made waves at Arkansas State.
I watched some of his highlights from CSU. Tall and a decent arm. Not very athletic and takes a lot of sacks. He has thrown more picks than TDs in all 3 seasons.

He will need an offense that allows him to mostly dink and dunk quickly with the occasional downfield throw. He reminds me so much of Adam Kennedy and Kennedy could sit in the pocket against the weaker defenses we played but he had to run the ball for us to have any success against better defenses.

sounds like he'll fit perfectly in our dink and dunk offense.

Here's another perspective. Berry kicked the can down the road and at the same time told the other qbs that they aren't good enough.

What's he going to do next year, get another one year rental?

He signed three qbs last and none are on campus yet
. So id say it's to early to judge them yet. It also gives the other three QBS time to develop.

Well the last time he started a freshman it kind of worked out for you.

Personnally I'm no fan of stop gaps. Sooner or late you pay for that philosophy.

No QBs for spring ball? I think those were the ones AstroCajun was referring to.

So how many QBs will you guys have? This transfer, plus the three you have signed that aren't on campus yet, plus whoever is on the team that hasn't graduated yet?

Seven qbs on scholarship in the fall. Three competed during the spring with bayle brown staying atop the depth chart. One of the three is a redshirt freshman with a lot of raw talent but needs more time to develop.

Seems our Sr LB, Mike Orakpo, knows Mr. Thomas and is looking forward to "meeting him on the field" this Fall.
