    I still recall the last IHS QB IUP took. The first time I saw him on the field in summer camp standing beside big lumberjack types like Mike Box and Pat Smith I was totally aghast. Yeah, there will be plenty of work to be done. I see that even Pitt has a former IHS QB on their roster. He will likely never take a snap, but it is cool to see guys keeping their hand in college ball while they are getting that education.

    Okay, I am a bit surprised that IUP offered the kid. But sometimes you just never know where the next blue chipper comes from.

    From his twitter feed, looks like Lock Haven also offered him. Maybe the coaches are remembering the last IHS QB not offered that went to Clarion, who beat them a couple years later. The money is probably on the low side, so its a good risk.

    Hopefully. I don't usually get too excited for recruits that only us and Lock Haven are chasing. Just sayin'

    Unfortunately at the D2 level they are exposed to neither of these ...the strength coach is just a position coach/trainer given the additional duties and the players eat the same slop as the regular students......... jus sayin

    Lock Haven is the sleeper in the PSAC. There's a lot going on there.

    IF he chooses to stay home he'll encounter competition for playing time at IUP which is a good thing. So, I wouldn't make any predictions about his future, however, the kid looks pretty good to me. I would be hesitant to sell him short. Isn't he also the all-time passing leader at IHS?

    Looking at his frame he could easily fill out to 200-210 and still be as mobile as he is now. Just sayin'. He's got adequate size for D2. No question.

    Lock Haven will be lucky to still be open by the time any of these recruits graduate .......... jus sayin

    Speaking of IHS I saw WR Ryan Hoff has left the IUP team.

    I guess 50 game losing streaks will create those kinds of perceptions but things do change.

    Call me curious ... what is going on there all the sudden besides them making offers to the entire WPIAL? Did they suddenly come in to some big coin?

    Very rare these days for a player to stick around more than a year or two if they don't get immediate significant playing time. jus sayin

    Which brings us to the IUP QB situation. In Matt's article Tort did say that they will be looking to bring in an experienced QB this summer. I suppose he is letting Davis and Wilkerson know that they need to keep pushing.

    That's also assuming both Davis and Wilkerson are coming back.

    I think they will at least be back for spring. I suppose a bad spring practice could effect if they comeback in the Fall.

    And don't forget the rather odd academic problems that have for some strange reason have plagued the IUP QB position the past half decade or so. It's been some tough sledding that way.

    Sounds like the staff may not have Davis' name written in stone as the next IUP QB as some observers believed last season.

    One oddity that may continue if Davis reverts back to his old high school jersey number of 5 is that he would be the fourth IUP QB to wear that number as a starter in recent years. He would follow Mike Box, Eddie $tockett, and Lenny Williams.
