    Makes sense. I'd never heard of that program before.

    They posted the CWU 2020 football roster. Doesn't look like it is fully updated yet, as there are several transfers not listed. But there are some that I did not know about: There is a Boise State transfer QB in Zach Matlock from Las Vegas. He walked on to Boise State and did not play in his 2 years there, and has 3 years to go (excluding this year). Also transferring in from OSU is DE Conner Warick, who committed to CWU out of high school before signing with the Beavers.

    Coming in from EWU is defensive back Jordan White, who was dismissed from the Eagles for his alleged role in a theft on campus, though he was never charged. https://www.spokesman.com/stories/20...-team-one-cha/

    That is old news from a little while back. But Moore has better athleticism and was the favorite to remain the starter. We will see if this Jack Smith can challenge him for that job though,

    So it looks like his initial injury he opted not to have surgery and let it heal on its own. So maybe it took a long time.

    Which ASU are they talking about? It must not be Arizona State because he's not listed in the 2019 or 2018 rosters.

    I agree and UW is slipping into that pattern of not developing their own and going with the grad transfer. One rumor out there was Haener had outplayed Eason by far in practice and most of the team knew it, but there was immense booster pressure to play Eason.

    I'm not big on always taking a transfer, but my example is that a guy like UW's Sirmon doesn't even see it -- they've recruited over him 3 times -- and he could improve his lot in life with a transfer somewhere. It doesn't happen as much at the lower levels.

    Also, QB is super tough to evaluate as many guys just don't translate to college. WSU had a 4-star, who got beat out by walk-on Falk. The 4-star ended up going to 3 more schools, eventually being benched at Montana State. It's a tough position to evaluate. So if by chance a school has recruited poorly at QB or guys aren't developing, a transfer can be a good stop gap, JC or 4-year transfer.

    But I'm with you, I'm more of a traditionalist in trying to develop the guys who are already on your roster -- especially at the D2 level.

    Yep, Sac State guy grad transferring to UW, Minshew, Vernon Adams (EWU/Oregon), and so on. If you have zero snaps after two years, good bet your school has no future for you. If you have zero snaps after 3 years, they're done with you. Obviously, some exceptions to the rule. WOU's Ty Currie got 4 snaps his first two years (after redshirting) at WOU; started every game his last two years and was player of the year in the GNAC his senior year. Might be different D2 on down, but in FBS/Power 5, if you're not getting snaps by your redshirt soph year, you're usually done.

    I'm surprised these guys from big football families -- Sirmon and Bledsoe -- don't get better advice from their dads.
