I'm very curious to see what happens with the QB's who are going to play in Leach's offenses at WSU. It's been awhile since WSU had a 1st round QB and I'm curious if the system Leach runs is going to kick out the non-drafted QB's like it did at Texas Tech, or if he's going to upgrade the quality of his QB from the recruiting QB haven of California and produce some NFL QB's at WSU?
Connor Halliday and Jeff Tuel are equal to any QB Leach had at Texas Tech including Graham Harrell in terms of talent. If Mike Leach's offense this year becomes a high-scoring offense before the season's over and they go to a bowl game, it's likely Leach's going to land a 4 star type QB eventually to direct this offense.
I want to point out as long as WSU is winning, I could care less if it's behind a Jason Gesser type QB (practice squad fodder for the NFL) or Ryan Leaf type (NFL 1st round pick bound). But if Leach is able to get some QB's to the NFL and can recruit those type of QB's to Pullman, WSU will be better because of it.
His highest rated QB was 4 star Graham Harrell who ended up his best QB giving Tech their best year ever in 2008. Does he keep recruiting the Graham Harrell's and Jason Gesser's of the world, or does he kick out NFL QB's? I'm curious to see what happens.
