I thought this was worthy enough for its own thread separate from the Nov Recruiting thread.
Let's start by looking at our QB Room for next year (Eligibility is from current class listed on Hokiesports):
Hendon Hooker, R-SO
The current starter, most likely has the upper hand in the QB competition for next year. I can't see him transferring considering the amount of effort he has put in to come back from the transfer portal and eventually become the starter.
Quincy Patterson II R-FR
Right now, QP II is the next man up, while not the starter he's getting a good amount of playing time. He also likes VT's academics from what he stated during his enrollment. I don't see him wanting to transfer out.
Braxton Burmeister R-SO
While we haven't seen Braxton play in a Hokie uniform, Fuente was really trying hard to get him immediately eligible and potentially compete with Willis. Braxton was a .8941 composite 4-star recruit at Oregon before transferring to VT. I also don't see him wanting to transfer if he just got here last year and had to sit out.
Knox Kadum True Fr
Knox is one who might find it hard to get playing time with potentially 3 in-front of him and Dematrius Davis coming in 2021. However he has run a similar offense at Rome high school and could be a valuable QB to us when his time comes.
I believe we have at least one Walk-on (Trevor Jackson)
2021 - Dematrius Davis
Davis is the #4 overall dual-threat QB according to 247 rankings. This is one exciting player that the fans are looking forward to and I'm sure the coaches are too. Plays in a solid football state for high school.
Recent QB Visitors from the 2020 Class:
A current USF commit but recently visited VA Tech on Nov 9; however he is a Pro-style QB and I'm not sure if he fits our scheme. But potential changes at USF might convince him to flip to VT especially if we are looking to add to the QB room.
Yes the son of Chad Morris is a composite 4-star QB with a .8925 and #13 overall Dual-threat QB. Is visiting VT this weekend. I really like his throws, they're right on the money and highlights also show his running ability. A little undersized at 5-11, 178 but he would have time to get Hilgartized. De-Committed from Arkansas.
So What do you all think?
We have 4 QBs, plus one coming in 2021 who is highly rated. If we pick up a QB in 2020, is the room crowded? Or can we say that we can never have too many? I'd say if we have a chance at a guy like Chandler Morris, let's get him.
