That stinks. No idea how he would have done but he was sort of pan B for the foreseeable future. Won't speculate on a reason. Hope it works for him.

RE: Valenti in transfer portal
Man, it sure will be great when they don't have to find grad transfer QBs every year. That could be a while though.

I went back and looked at the recruiting history at QB and found a staggering portrait of ineptitude across multiple coaching staffs. The last QB to come in as a freshman recruit, play all four years of his eligibility at NIU and be consistently productive was Jordan Lynch from the 2009 recruiting class. Here's the roster:

2009 Jordan Lynch
2010 Casey Weston - JUCO transfer, one and done
2011 Matt McIntosh - Transferred to SIU for his senior year
2012 Drew Hare - Was here for five years but had bad luck with injuries his junior and senior seasons
2012 Matt Williams - Converted to wideout, transferred to GVSU
2013 Anthony Maddie - Had to sit a year due to his transfer from WMU, was mostly stuck behind Lynch and Hare. Played well when given a chance.
2014 Landon Root - One and done
2014 Ryan Graham - Stayed five years but became incapacitated with injuries.
2015 Santa - Left after his sophomore year
2016 Marcus Childer/Anthony Thompson - Left after their junior years.
2017 Rodney Hall - Converted to receiver and left.
2018 Jiya Wright - One and done
2019 Mariano Valenti - One and done

Makes it seem like he felt he had no chance of beating out Fletcher and therefore wouldn't ever be the starter.

That's the first thought that comes to mind. But I try to give the kid the benefit of the doubt. Could be for any sort of reasons. If it was a competition thing all you have to do is look at our recent qb history. He would have seen some action.

Didn't Maddie get turned into a WR and had to switch back due to injures and then looked like possibly the best QB on the roster?

It’s tough being a D1 quarterback. NIU is loading up on QB’s right now. I don’t blame him.

I don't think it was even injuries - but yea, he looked like the best on the roster, though he didn't play that many games before he got injured too.

Does this list of QBs remind anyone of a similar list for a local pro sports team?

Dont believe for a minute a 20 year old QB who was looked at by MIchigan State, and received offers from Toledo + C.Michigan was afraid of completion from an incoming freshman

Damn. If Bowers goes down, he could have had a chance. I think he would do pretty well too. I wouldn't want Fletcher to burn a RS.

Hare didn't have bad luck. HE LED US TO A TITLE. One of the toughest Huskies I have seen in my many years of NIU football.

I liked Hare a lot. He was a decent runner and a good passer. But I'll have to agree, he had bad luck with injuries his junior and senior year that hindered how great he could have been. Golladay would have been so much better his senior year with Hare giving him the rock than the committee he had.

My guess is Hammock wants his guys that he fully recruited given opportunities before the older guys like Valenti who was a Carey guy.

Lol. That's true. He was a stud in Michigan. Then moved to Florida where competition is much faster. Only to ride the pine.

St.Thomas Aquinas is a top football program in the state of Florida. I’ll take their backups at every position please.

Their starting QB is going to Harvard. Had a couple of P5 offers.
