From what I see on twitter, looks like Mullens has committed to UAB.

Not verified yet by Drew.
Then this is not off topic.
He committed last night before the game. I met the new coaches and saw a bunch of the recruits. I was impressed. We also had several basketball recruits in attendance. If both coaches get most of the guys we are after our future is pretty bright.

I fixed it as it is very much Blazer Related.
Also, looks like Helton has started his run on UAB commits...

Auburn would start digging in on uab recruits late in the recruiting year. Hopefully he remembers uab finished with a better record. Uab has a better chance to win right now than they do. As well as tuberville isnt too popular right now with football recruits.
Didnt Mullens win Alabama player of the year or something for the news stations?

Spain Park quarterback Nick Mullens named Gatorade 2012 Alabama Football Player of the Year

We will know a lot more in just 24 days. I am hoping we will be greatly enhanced by the recruits of this class.
Mullens and Briscoe will make us much better at QB. We certainly needed the depth. It's going to be interesting to watch how things develop.

Well, if we have JP, AB, Briscoe, and Mullens, then that will be a senior, sophomore, and two freshmen. Going forward, we can redshirt either Briscoe or Mullens (more likely Mullens), ans we'll have a junior, sophomore, and a freshman returning for 2014. That will be pretty good.

We'll see.
I'm still not convinced that Briscoe will be the choice ahead of Mullens. He has stated that he loves baseball and will play both sports at UAB which means, unless he changes his mind, he misses Spring training yearly. Add to this the fact that baseball conditioning is different from football conditioning, especially with weight/strength training for a pitcher. He may not have the commitment necessary to be a starting QB. But, we'll see. We are in a far better position than we were a month ago. BTW - I think we red-shirt both.

WHAT IF we red-shirt them and as with this spring, we find them both gone elsewhere a year from now? I sure hope not, but we face that problem now.
Presumably neither will play in 2013 in which case they both redshirt. Unless both AB and JP get hurt next year I don't see either getting field time. I think both would benefit from some time in the weight room, too. If you don't play or play 1 or 2 series for the entire year a redshirt would seem preferable to me. I really don't understand the aversion to redshirting. You get a year to get bigger, stronger, and faster. You get a year to get acclimated to the speed of the game. You get an extra year toward your degree and, possibly, get at least 1 year of graduate school paid for.

Your argument convinced me, but my eligibility expired 40 years ago. Now we have to hope they are convinced as well. .
I think we have already gone through the "hold them out until next year" thing at QB.

Maybe we should just let all of them battle it out & let the top 2 play & the 3rd & 4th be there if needed.

They transferred because they were redshirted? After watching all those interceptions? They must not have had much confidence at all. I wasn't under the impression Austin had it on lockdown by year's end. Weak.

However, I think we need depth in a hurry, so at least one of them should get some playing time.

That's what I guessed, too: that if they weren't going to play this past season given the injuries and INTs and all, then they never were going to play.
Not accurate. McGee has put his eggs in the AB basket, feeling he had most upside. The others knew they would not get a chance that's why they left. Lets hope for the programs sake he was right...
I agree that McGee thought this season was a "freebie" and wanted to use up as few amounts of player's eligibility as possible. I don't know his evaluation of any of the QBs since I am not privy to his thinking, but I believe their departure was a surprise, particularly Greer. I am of the opinion that his thinking was along the lines of Western Blazer, that they would benefit from the extra year and be ready to go for spring practice. Since the high school QB is commonly the best athlete on his team, they are often moved to other positions when coming to college and often excel and flourish at the new position, even playing it in the NFL. We have often heard the game announcer say about a pass thrown by a WR or a RB, "He was a QB in high school".

Maybe both RSQBs were approached about that possibility and chose to move on.
