I found this posted in a UM forum at 247sports, and thought it was interesting. Al Borges, UM's OC, is touted by many fans for scouting and developing QBs. This post shows that he's not actually all that great, especially with recruiting. Check out this track record, thought people might find any tidbits on enemy recruiting to be interesting:
"Here are the qb's Borges has offered while he was the OC at these schools...
Scott McEwan = bench warmer
Cory Paus = medicore starter
Ryan McCann = bench warmer
JP Losman = Transfered to Tulane, NFL Draft pick
John Sciarra = scrub, Transfered to a Div 1-AA school
So at UCLA he was 1/5 (20%) on his qb evaluations.
Steve Levy = bench warmer
At Cal he was 0/1 (0%) on his qb evaluations.
Graeme McFarland = bench warmer
Allen Webb = transfered
Blake Powers = medicore 1 year starter
Mike Vlahogeorge = transfered
Grant Gregory = transfered
At Indiana he was 0/5 (0%) on his qb evaluations.
Neil Caudle = bench warmer
Steven Ensminger = transfered
Kodi Burns = stunk, converted to WR
Barrett Trotter = medicore 1 year starter
At Auburn he was 0/4 (0%) on his qb evaluations.
*San Diego State*
Jake Bernards = bench warmer
Adam Dingwell = got beat out for the starting job this year by an Oregon State transfer.
At San Diego State he was 0/2 (0%) on his qb evaluations.
Almost everywhere Borges has gone he's *inherited* good qb's (Cade McNown, Jason Campbell, Ryan Lindley), but if you look at the guys he's actually recruited & signed...well, i think 1out of 17 speaks for itself. He just can't evaluate High School qb's."
