    As noted by IUPBigIndians, Ben Schmidt is now a fullback. The issue is that neither Logan Horn nor Jack Krug has ever played in a college game, let alone taken a snap or thrown a pass. If Sexton were to get hurt, would you be comfortable turning to one of them yet?



    They like Aiden Spitler and Nicholas Morrison, both of whom redshirted last year, and they are high on the all-state incoming freshman from York Catholic, Nick Andrasi. I think they'll find one they can count on among them.



    That's the challenge for Tort and the staff. But they got Jalen Reese a few years ago from Toledo and he turned out to be pretty good. He arrived before Maxwell signed, but he knew they were in the market for a starter.

    I guess the downside to this shopping venture is ... while the current two backups have never thrown a D2 pass in a live game ... it's certainly likely the guy they bring in probably has never thrown a pass in a D1 game, either.

    If they do sign one, will they cut one of the current backups? Or, perhaps a position change? If I recall, neither can redshirt this year (they already have). Would they carry (4) QBs on the active roster?

    Thanks for the info.

    Also, I wonder about the Kicker role. We lost our returning Kicker. Do our current candidates have what it takes to be the difference in important games?

    Now, the obvious question comes up ... what 'quality' of a transfer QB is going to want to come here with what appears to be a starter in place for the next two seasons?

    Well, one of the QBs (Schmidt) is now a fullback. I'd guess they aren't real warm and fuzzy about the other two. It could also be there's more to the story than Tort let on ... perhaps he's not anticipating one of them still being here by the summer.

    I agree somewhat but SRU fits that tag more. There is a total dislike for Rock, Cal was always respected by IUP by Cig and company especially during the Lockhart and Keller. That could change if several of these Cal portal guys join OC Wilson. Not the first switch in players, Kirby Griffin and Slappy landed in Vulcan nation Griffin was a great one.

    That's one from the Mon Valley -- and, a fairly significant one.

    Three other DBs from Cal remain in the portal -- Jermal Martin, Dominic Solomon and Naszhir Taylor.

    Any inkling any of them will be joining Lockhart?
