Connecticut Quarterback Tim Boyle committed to BC and Spaz Wednesday. There is a lot to like about Boyle (see below), but what I am most excited about is that he is our second QB in this class. In a way I want Spaz to recruit like Noah trying to fill the Ark. We need two of everything! I think depth at key positions in this class is critical, because I anticipate this will be a transition class. If we do make a coaching change, many of our current commits will go elsewhere. By having two QBs in the fold BC hedges on one of them ditching BC if we make a coaching change.
Even if BC doesn't make a change, taking two QBs fits with the Steve Logan/Doug Martin strategy of recruiting two guys. The benefit of taking two a year means that over the course of five recruiting classes, you will have 10 potential QBs. It is a lot easier to find one really good QB and two decent ones when you bring in 10 as opposed to five or six. It is sort of a throw enough stuff against the wall and see what sticks. The guys that don't work out will leave or learn a new position.
