Just out of curiosity I am following WKU and Robison has not signed at WKU yet. But I fully expect him to.
Hmmmmm [-o<
Based on how well Tucker performed down the stretch, the signing of Matt McKay, and the signing of "Touchdown" Tommy Mellott, I feel much better about Grady decommitting.
I don't really agree.

McKay doesn't change a lot. Same graduation date as Rovig.

I like Mellott, but I'm just skeptical of him being a BSC QB. Hope I'm wrong, but I'm just not seeing it.

I'd like to see another recruit or young transfer brought in. Obviously, lots of time.
I would've agreed with you prior to Tommy's senior season. He improved enough for me to consider him a legit FCS quarterback recruit.
That's fair. I hope you're right!
Blake Thelen also received really good reviews this year from the coaching staff. Choate has mentioned to a few that he's ahead of his development at QB.
Hopefully he can get to a summer camp as well.

What are the odds that he’s an immediate replacement?
I know that’s a lot to ask, but is he a kid who’s going to come in and possibly be ready to roll? Or will he need a couple years of development?

How does the Prep school year work with redshirt years? Does it count as a redshirt? Or is his clock the same as every other incoming freshman?

Watch this highlight tape and see for yourself. Hell...the kid even moves around like Brayden.



Going to post his track results one more time:
At 6'3", 215 lbs., Brody put up these numbers at State C track this spring:

100M - 11.15 (2nd)
200M - 22.82 (2nd best state time; scratched in finals after setting that time in prelims.)
Shot Put - 51' 7" (1st)
Long Jump - 21' 8.5" (1st)
Triple Jump - 45' 6.75" (1st)

When you place at state in running, jumping, AND throwing events, you are a special athlete.

Not unreasonable at all. The kid is an absolute stud athletically and a genius in the classroom. Had offers from about 5 Ivy's. GREAT get.

I had a friend from Butte describe Mellott as the next Dave Dickenson. Now this guy, is highly involved in Butte sports and knows his stuff and his Butte history. I was pretty excited to hear that comparison, because Mellott is special and we just have to give him time to adjust to the Big Sky.
I am from Butte (graduated in '91 from Great Falls). I watched Tommy pretty close, and I watched Dave really, really close back in the day. I too compare Tommy to Dave. Style of play maybe not so much; but character, smarts, work ethic, toughness are something that they really share. They both have the "it" factor, but yet modest and extremly grounded. Never satisfied. Obviously Dave is 100% proven, and Tommy is not yet, but I'd be willing to bet that Dave wouldnt be upset by me making this comparison.

Prep school. Brody graduated from Melstone High School in 2019 this past May. Not sure but I think it works the same as a JC so Brody would have 4 years to play 3 at MSU.

This, all day. Could be a 4 year starter. It was a traveshamockery letting him get away last year. So glad he's coming back!

You could be right but I don't think so. I think he has 4 to play 4 or even still has 5 to play 4. I'd be interested to know for sure.

Also, there has been talk of Washington and NC State drop downs (other than Matt McKay) who could still enter the fold this spring or summer. Stay tuned.
