Next VT QB not on campus yet?

Here are some stats from the Spring Game:

Leal: 10/18 for 90 yds, 1 INT; 55% comp; 5.0 yds/att; 9.0 yds/comp; 2.8 adj yds/att

Motley: 6/11 for 72 yds, 1 INT; 54.5% comp; 6.5 yds/att; 12 yds/comp; 5.3 adj yds/att


Those are some ugly numbers! Generally speaking, if a QB only completes 55% of his passes it's because he's throwing deep; conversely, if a QB is averaging 9 to 12 yards per completion, he's generally expected to complete at least 65% of them. When you look at the adjusted yards per attempt (subtracting 40 yards per interception and giving a 10-yard bonus for TDs) the average yards per attempt is so low that you'd be better off running on every down!

Fortunately, all is not lost. Texas Tech transfer Michael Brewer and freshman Chris Durkin arrive in late May. Will one of those guys take over the starting job? If I had to guess right now I'd say Brewer is going to be the man this Fall. Could Leal or Motley improve drastically? Sure, but it's not like Leal hasn't been in Loeffler's system long enough, so I'm not sure where the improvement is coming from...

Let's hope Brewer sets the world on fire!
