Damn, how old are you?
Thing to remember in the Colquitt game. He wasn't playing against just any HS team. That Colquitt defense was LOADED with D-1 players, including at DB. That was no ordinary high school team.
That defense included a DB?!? Wow, Russ Probst is a genius!
He is old. He is Coit's great grandson.
You guys would be a lot happier if you did not look at star ratings at all. The worst thing you can when evaluating players is take someone else's word.
The second worst thing you can do is scout off a highlight reel.
The third worst thing is look at old hs tape. The kids change too quickly. After that comes a small sample size of viewings.
Basically, we can get excited about a kid but we can't devote the resources to fully understand even one school's class. You either trust the coaches eval skills or you do not.
Russ Probst probably has better reading comprehension skills than you too.
I don’t trust the coaches eval skills for QB. But I do see his natural talent for the game, running ability, and I choose to speculate that he has good intangibles. I think he’ll be an important part of our team in the future from the slot rather than slanging.
The QB of the future is going to have to see over the massive line we are going to have.
Reggie threw those for him.
This is a remarkably dumb post. Is English your first language? He didnt use DB singular, and his sentence structure made D1 into a modifier for DB. Do you not do English?
I dont know jack on the specifics for Yates, but I need to add a fact. The top QBs today are absolutely capable of playing at a D1 level including reading defenses on day 1. This is a big change from even a decade ago. The QB instruction at top high schools has made huge strides but more important is the QB academies and personal QB trainers that are being paid to develop these kids much earlier than previously.
FWIW, Yates worked with Quincy Avery, a pretty well known QB coach who developed Deshaun Watson, Josh Dobbs and others. His uncle is also NFL journeyman TJ Yates. He has gotten some top notch coaching. Wouldn't surprise me if he could play early.

Not sure if you're joking but someone needs to tell that to Drew Brees this Sunday in the NFC Championship.
Bring on Blake Bortles!!! Yippeee
Both of the last 2 Heisman winners are QBs shorter than Jordan Yates. One just went #1 overall in the NFL Draft, and the other will probably be top 10 in the next draft. I think he'll be fine at 6'1.
If we end up recruiting a 6'5" pocket passer in the next class who is better than Yates, great. But it is an outdated view to think that is a must have.
Exactly. The best 2 GT QBs in my lifetime were both about 5'9, so that's enough evidence for me.
GT Class of '62
Everybody going: 119-62=57+~22=79. I used to say that was old, too.
So only a few decades younger than @coit.
Short guys always take the bait. A Blake type would be wonderful at GT. I’ll take these stats all day.
