QBs Not-quite-mailbag

RJ furnishes us with a link, summarizes by giving us this snippet of information:

Sam Webb said this morning that the days of Michigan recruiting players that only play qb. Brandon McGee and a few other dual threats who play other positions are what they are looking for. Tate Forcier and all the other qbs can be pretty much taken off.

I removed all QBs except two categories when Shavodrick Beaver committed to Michigan:

  • Guys who could play another position and learn QB for emergency situations.
  • Tate Forcier.

It now sounds like Forcier can be removed from that list. However, I think the scope of RJ’s message is a little overextended. For 2009, Michigan is probably done recruiting QBs (unless they are multiple-position guys), but in the future, if there’s a Tate Forcier-type guy, they would take him. So, for this year, it means Forcier is off the board.

    oh the emergency guys are on there in case Beaver or Newsome get nabbed by another school and we have to sign a three star fast?

    They are guys who would come to Michigan as safeties, DBs, etc., but also learn the QB position in case there is a train of starting quarterbacks getting hurt over the course of a season/game.
