Sounds like influence of Yurcich. I'd be curious to know if he entered the portal and had no takers. This could become a common outcome. I'll create a new acronym: NSFA - No Scholarship Free Agent.

Late entries into the portal could run into a numbers issue on the available scholarships in a given year. In many cases they may end up looking at schools that lost other players to transfer as that may be the only scholarship openings. But even then most programs have a pretty good idea of who they think will be transferring and have already overbooked expecting those departures.

Realize that your highlight video shows your best stuff, but this kid was dropping dimes. Don't be surprised if he puts himself into the back-up role before it's all said and done. I see a scholarship for him after year one.

HS

Doubt that happens unless he lights it up. 2020 and 2021 commit and we will get a second QB in ‘21. We will save the scholarship for recruiter players unless we only have like 80 on scholarship.

Most of the time preferred walk-ons earn a scholarship going into their Junior year. If offered a scholarship after year one, that scholarship would count against the previous year so getting one as a red-shirt Frosh is probably not in the cards.

BuckNut_1974's picture

Back-up?? Maybe. Your doing something right if your completing almost 70% of you throws and only have 5 picks to 33 TDs. Might be a diamond in the ruff like I fell that JP Andrade is.

There’s a reason he didn’t have offers out of HS and walked on at A&m

Could it be these guys are looking to parlay time with Coach Day into future coaching opportunities? Day is known a great QB coach.

Get him in the program and let Ryan Day work on him and see if there is anything there that could make him a scholly player eventually.

Kid has got it down already. Here’s a quote from TheOzone,

This kid totally gets it. Ohio State is steeped in tradition and he knows to say "THE Ohio State University" and "Buckeye Nation".

The depth in the QB room is really back, now.  That's not to say that the season isn't in deep trouble if something happens to Fields, but at least now there are options if we enter a 2014-type of scenario with multiple QBs going down.  

If nothing else, Jagger LaRoe is a 1st team Best Names All-American.  Welcome aboard!

Would someone in the know with time on their hands please elaborate the pros/cons of being a "preferred walk-on" as compared to a walk-on or an average student or a scholarship athlete?

o||||||o

HS
tajikey's picture

Took less time to Google the answer than type this response, but here it goes (from Wikipedia):

"In some instances, a college coach or recruiter may designate an athlete as a "preferred walk-on" during the scouting process. In this situation, the athlete is assured a spot on the team, but the coach is unable or unwilling to offer a scholarship."

jpfbucks01's picture

Welcome aboard, I believe this kid may never see the field here. Still, always nice to have another guy though.

Was a walk-on at A&M, and had zero D1 offers as far as I am aware.

He did have a  solid Sr year in HS but as a JR was not very strong throwing for less than 1500 yards with 9 TDs and 6 INTs

He did play a little in A&Ms Spring Game this year but didn't do much more than had off a bunch going 3 of 5 for 29 yards and no rushing attempts

HS
Brooksie's picture

I will take the other viewpoint JPF.

What I saw in the Hudl highlight clip was a lot of positives. So I think the talent is there - it becomes the charge of our coaches to bring it out.

When Jagger threw off his back foot only, he tended to underthrow the receiver. But it looked like it was a defense optional game, so he got away with it. However, when Jagger really stepped into the throw and drove the ball - it was spot on in stride for the TD. There is even a play where LaRoe takes a shot to the chest a millisecond after delivering a strike to an open receiver for the TD.

What I am trying to say - is don't sleep on this kid.

Jp is spot on. Highlight films can be very  deceiving. It shows all good and no bad. 

HS
Brooksie's picture

Completely agree, bucks19. The game is certainly not played by highlight clips alone. But the play that certainly impressed me more than anything was Jagger getting DRILLED just as he steps into a throw and delivers a TD strike.

But I will give that to you as well. It was 1 play in 1 game - can it be replicated over and over? TBD. Only fair way is to let them sort it out at practice.

So what the heck is going on in Texas that Tom Herman can't land any of these Texas boys?

I can't answer your question directly, but I will hazard a guess and state that ol Tommy Herman knows what he is doing. I expect Texas will win the Big 12 this year.

I'm sure this is going to come off as a stupid reply. However, what's to say that Herman actually wanted these Tejas Boys?

Amazing watching that film that he didn't have any offers.  Considering has 3 other QB's that were in the 40's and 50's per 247, I was surprised since this guy seemed fairly comparable. Well good luck to him, more depth and he can look at transferring for a scholarship at some point if he isn't going to get one at OSU with his accuracy and excellent coaching he is going to get here.
