Stidham starting this Fall may be a foregone conclusion but only so long as he stays away from interceptions.

Prayers for you and your family.

Happy for Willis. I said Willis was a winner LOL.. Where u at AUH?? Gotta jab a little . One scrimmage doesn't tell the tale. Also great news cowart did well . I hope he settles in and has an all sec type year

From what I am hearing from sources, the scrimmage is not the first time Malik Willis has been shining. Just the first chance he had to show how his ability translates under live conditions.

That's great to hear . I hope he has a great spring . He could take the 2 spot from Sean. His skill set is Taylor made for this offense, Sean won't go quietly

Or TE/HB.  If he isn't going to contribute at QB, try to find a place to use his size and athleticism.

I think he would transfer before moving positions to be brutally honest.

Odd comment considering there was no reports of him throwing any yesterday.

Only if Sean gets hurt during the season which is a real possibility if the 2 even plays much.

I am right here.  I hope Willis is the next Nick Marshall.

I hope he's better as in passing the ball.

I agree.  He was more like Nick passing the ball in high school than Stidham and SW.

I doubt MW will be #2. I think people are too quick to underestimate Sean White. When Sean is healthy, he is hard to beat. People forget that Sean played hurt most of last year.

Sean White is one of the more accurate QBs you will see. It is going to be a real battle between White and Stidham. Stidham will probably win out, due to a little better arm strength and being more elusive, but it will be close. A lot closer than many think.

As far a Malik Willis goes, he definitely has the talent. What he will need to become the starter is time and experience. I have no doubt  that if he remains healthy and keeps his head on straight, he will definitely start at AU one day.

I agree. Too talented at the QB position to switch.

I have heard he is pretty accurate. Remember this is a true freshman, so he has plenty of time to work on his throwing mechanics. It is his ability to elude and his decision making that are impressing the coaches, along with very good arm strength. That is not to say he is not accurate now, just needs some time and experience to get better. 

Definitely someone we can get excited about for the future. We will probably all get to witness what his and our future holds at the A-Day game.

Sorry. Was just clarifying for the rest of the board.

Thanks.

I never get what @bigbird is saying.

:big:

EDIT: Sorry, E. I wasn't messing with you, but rather bird. Just read the rest of the thread and saw about your grandfather. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

We don't know how accurate anybody is actually with the basic plays we've been running and the super heavy running game. Guy miss or completes two passes and we run with it, plus we hardly attacked down field

Not at all.  He has the tools, he's just struggling to put them together.

Nope. He just has to get his butt in gear mentally.

E, I agree. All reports are that JS had a good day and did not make any errors.

Yes I know his completion %. He was more efficient as a passer than anything because of the run game, not crisply accurate.
