With National Recruiting Day in full swing, the nation’s top high school talent is being wooed by the top college football programs. These are where the seeds of national championships are planted. For the Miami Hurricanes the one position which was a huge void coming into recruiting day was QB. With Brad Kaaya skipping his senior season for the NFL Draft, the Canes will have to figure out who will replace the school’s all time passing yards leader. They may have found him in Vanguard High out of Ocala, Fl N’Kosi Perry.
Perry is a a 6’3 .5 175lb dual threat QB, who has been compared to Louisville’s Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson. Coming in as a freshman isn’t an easy task to be able to win a starting job at this level, but don’t forget Kaaya was able to become the started with no college snaps logged. Clearly it isn’t unprecedented.
In the college game it seems having a dual threat QB is almost a necessity to be able to compete for a national title. It’s the just the way the game has evolved too. One of the rubs on Kaaya was that he wasn’t mobile enough and when the offensive line had their problems during the season, it effected the offense. Of course Richt and company made the necessary adjustments to mask Kaaya’s lack of mobility, but it led many fans to wonder what if…
What if Miami had a mobile dual threat QB this past year? Well there is no sense in playing hypotheticals. They have one now in Perry. It looks like he will be given a chance to compete for the job along with Jr. Malik Rosier. If Perry shows the signs of Lamar Jackson in fall camps, you better believe, Richt is going to roll the dice and start the young man. He may not be completely polished at this level, but if he’s what folks are saying he is, it will at least be entertaining. With the weapons Miami has retunring in Mark Walton at RB and Ahmmon Richards at WR and Chris Herndon IV at TE, it could be quite the explosive offense.
Now I can’t wait to see what this young man can do!
