    Default 2018 GAC Preseason News

    According to NewsOK, ECU has a new QB. Note: I do not see him listed on the ECU roster.

    Does it really worry you that a guy who has transferred all over creation and has one year of eligibility left is playing QB for ECU?

    Well first impressions it reminds me of a Kyle Frazier situation from Auburn when he went to OBU.

    No, not really worried about a 23 yr old journeyman. They're still ECU and he's no Kiehl Frazier not even close.

    Also just because he went D1 out of high school means very little to me. We have guys on our roster who had D1 offers coming out of high school. It's all about player development at the end of the day.

    Ok. Can you still cite those for me? “Offers” can be misleading. Hatcher from PA signed with A state but was actually gray shirted. Then he claims after signing day he has offer from bama. Bama can’t offer anything but a full or a walk on. Saban didn’t even remember Hatcher when asked about it couple days later. What a kid says on twitter and what was actually offered aren’t always the same.

    Did transfer QB not pan out? He’s still not on an updated roster

    To be fair, this happens all the time. FCS guys find out they are not as good as they thought they were, will transfer down. Several times if they have a stellar Freshman or Sophomore year they will even transfer up. SAU has had several guys over the years such as Tanner Hudson (QB at Memphis, TE at SAU) that is now playing for Tampa Bay.

    What about Brazeal?

    All kidding aside, I did see that Basil Shabazz son is on the roster. Lucky for us, it’s not his dad.

    Regardless of if he pans out or not, he's one of the best HS recruits to ever play in the GAC to this point. Nice get for ECU.

    Here's his HS bio:

    Curious if he will beat out Noah Holle. Noah Holle is going into his Senior season. Noah played a little bit last hear, but stats are nothing special.

    A few games into the season Noah Holle lost the starting job to Rayjohn Austin-Ramsey.

    That sounds a lot like what Ouachita did in 2012.

    These guys signed straight out of high school.
