Texas Recruiting 2012: Quarterback Big Board Update

New, comments

Needs -- One

Name School JD invite? Offer?

Commitment/ odds

Quick take
Connor Brewer
Chaparral (AZ)
Feb. 26

Committed to Texas (2/7/11)


2/21: Instant analysis and scouting report. Brewer will be back in town for JD2 and will likely spend his time there building rapport with other attendees.

2/6: A decidedly pro-style quarterback, Brewer has solid size at 6-2 and decent athleticism. It's his accuracy on the deep ball that will endear him to Bryan Harsin, who recruited Brewer while at Boise State and helped his high school coaches install Bronco offense at Chaparral. Older sister is a swimmer at Texas. Could commit at the second Junior Day. National recruit. Onto the Radar scouting report.

Trevor Knight
SA Reagan
Feb. 12 No N/A

2/21: Did not end up attending JD1 after Brewer's commitment. Both sides will move on with Texas only taking one QB in 2012.

2/6: Knight has better arm strength than Brewer and is a better athlete, but lacks his overall polish as a passer. Lifelong Texas fan. Would almost certainly commit if offered.

Matt Davis
Klein Forest
No N/A Explosive athlete with off-the-charts playmaking ability with the ball in his hands. Mechanics are sloppy, but has solid arm strength. Blown ACL in first game of 2010 slowed his development as a passer. Texas coaches may not like the fact that he's not making any Junior Day visits because he wants more personal attention than the crowded events can provide. Longhorns could pursue him as an athlete. My early preference, before Brewer surfaced on the radar.


Outstanding offers -- None

Moving forward -- The Longhorns landed their top target in the class once again and will not take another quarterback unless two transfer this spring, in which case they may continue to evaluate other options Trevor Knight if he is still available. If one quarterback transfers this spring -- and it's not a guarantee that any of the four quarterbacks on campus this spring will leave -- then the Longhorns probably stick with Brewer and rely on adding another quarterback in the 2013 class.
