    Ouch...

    This is EXACTLY the type of QB CPJ should have in our system, unfortunately...

    Watch Clemson-bound QB DeShaun Watson at 7:30 tonight | AJC College Sports Recruiting

    Watson is a dual-threat quarterback who put up Nintendo-like numbers as a sophomore: He passed for 3,251 yards and 41 touchdowns with 6 interceptions, while rushing for 1,073 yards and 16 touchdowns on the way to leading Gainesville to the state semifinals.

    What about UGA and Georgia Tech? Watson said he’s had limited contact with UGA. “There’s a little interest, but it would take a lot for me to let them recruit me.” He said he was thankful for an offer from Georgia Tech but wasn’t interested because “I don’t want to run the Triple Option.
    He still has another 2 years to go, so hopefully CPJ with Vad/Justin under center can show the full potential of this offense in that time.

    Georgia produces 3-5 ELITE dual threat QBs every year, and it sucks to see them going to other schools to change positions or ride the bench when they could be studs in our offense.

    Oh well, guess we'll just have to beat him with the TO when we play him in a couple seasons!! He may think twice after we put up some ridiculous stats these next 2 seasons!

    GT's PR/Marketing arm REALLY needs to come up with a better marketing plan for our offense. This offense is definitely not just the "triple option" and we definitely haven't shown its full capabilities yet.

    Then again, it's up to CPJ to show this offense's full capabilities. We're heading into year 5 now.

    The funny thing is, GT use to be one of the biggest destinations for highly ranked duel threat QBs (Sean Jones, Donnie Davis, Joe Hamilton, Demarius Bilbo, etc.), but now that we have an offense that can showcase their capabilities (not taking anything away from Friedgen's offenses), those same type of QBs don't want anything to do with us.

    This is why it is so important VL or JT shows what this offense can do PASSING. These stud kids don't want to be glorified RBs, they want to showcase their arm with running just being icing on the cake.

    Clemson is going to be nasty sooner than later. They are doing some serious recruiting. They really have no excuse not to... They have a very "SEC" like campus/atmosphere.

    Ha, just imagine of you were a stud recruit and you got on this board and read about our QB running, running, running, who needs to pass? And our running backs blocking, blocking, blocking?! Would you be very excited as a talented QB or RB?

    I agree, Helluva. When we signed Vad, I said he could be our best recruiter, or our worst enemy in recruiting depending on how he develops at GT.

    I love this offense, but I really wish CPJ would revert back to his early days in it when he emphasized the Run-n-Shoot more and complemented it with our spread option concepts instead of what we're doing now. Nothing wrong with our spread option heavy play calling...it's just not that attractive to the top tier prospects. I understand why he did it at Navy, but we're not Navy, and GT is in a recruiting rich area where there's more than enough elite recruits to make the passing portion of our offense less risky.

    If a qb wants to throw twenty times a game or doesnt want hell knocked out of him each and everytime he touches the ball doubt he will be a Tech qb.Studs want to put ball in air or run from the spread.We have not recruited a big time qb to run the option in five years.Okay Vad is good athlete but so far we have not seen him behind the center.He may be the guy.I hope so

    I repeat but if you are a running back that likes to run off tackle and has size why be a stright ahead dive guy.If you can throw the ball and throw it well why become a option qb,if you can catch the ball and get only three shots a game why be a wide out at tech? I am sure folks will disagree but five years later all we have is Vad Lee and he has not taken a snap at center.Yeah when we had a big time Fridge offense we attracted some good qbs and skill guys .........but now we are not scaring any other recruiter when it comes to big time college qbs.I still think Raphie and his o ans x plays were better than what we see now.

    I agree, Mack. Kids today are infinitely more sophisticated when it comes to recruiting. They watch all these recruiting shows like Elite-11 on ESPN for QB's, and hear all the analysts say how QBs need to know how to pass the ball first and run second if they want to be a "real" QB. On top of that, they get negatively recruited if they say GT is in the mix because our offense runs the ball 70-80% of the time. Live by the sword, die by the sword...or spread option...

    I don't think it's the spread option that kills is (just look at Oregon) so much as our version of it (as far as QB and RB) and our heavy heavy run ratio. Oregon's spread option passes 2x more at 40%. QBs won't mind playing in that offense nearly as much.

    The only thing holding us back from opening up the pass is a good passing QB (supposedly) and the only thing keeping us from a good passing QB is our heavy run ratio... Well, we seem to have a pretty good passer on the roster now and I can't wait to see how CPJ handles it when the time comes.

    I would guess most tailbacks actually have to run between the tackles more often than not, it's more of a difference in style of running (not opening that can or worms again).

    impressive stats. but, you win some, you lose some. this kid's taken to heart the anti-hype about our offense from opposing recruiters. there are others out there.

    as many have pointed out time and again, this offense has it ALL. not just running plays. it can cater to all types of QBs. currently, our most experienced QB is more comfortable running the option rather than passing. so, we're certainly not going to switch horses midstream. however, if TW goes down and CPJ calls vad's number you can bet the play calls will be more suited to his strength--his arm.

    count me as one who agrees that vad or justin's succees as dual-threat QBs will be our best recruiting leverage into the future for studs we're looking for.
