Where did throwing arm rank in terms of importance when Urban Meyer and crew were searching for quarterbacks? Not very high at all.
Speaking on ESPN in his new analyst role, Meyer just said that he trusted his coaches to be able to teach a quarterback how to properly throw the football, which is why he looked at other areas. And that’s why he and his staff saw future Gator Jeff Driskel as the top QB in the country this year.
“Without question we had Jeff Driskel the #1 quarterback in America because of the four intangibles that he is tough, he does compete, he is intelligent and he’s a great leader.”
So arm ranked fifth to Meyer? Interesting. Meyer is doing a pretty solid job in his new role this morning, by the way.
Driskel has signed with Florida.
