Notes:

Married. Also lettered in basketball and track as a Texas prep. Redshirted in 2006. Started 7-of-13 games in ’07 and completed 187-of-283 pass attempts (68.5 percent) for 2,259 yards with 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Rushed 103 times for 412 yards and nine touchdowns (4.0). Ranked first nationally in total offense (403.2 yards per game) and was the Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year in ’08 after starting all 13 games and passing 397-589-5,020-44-11 (67.4). Added 76-221-7 (2.9) rushing. In ’09, was a finalist for the Davey O’Brien, Manning and Walter Camp Awards in addition to being named conference MVP after leading the nation in total offense (416.4) and passing yards per game (405.1). Established a UH single-season passing record by starting all 14 games and airing out 492-700-5,671-44-15 (70.3). Rushed 60-158-4 (2.6). Managed 42-64-636-5-5 (65.6) in three starts in ’10 but sustained a concussion against UTEP and suffered a season-ending torn right ACL injury against UCLA. Threw for 428-603-5,631-48-5 (71.0) in 14 starts in ’11 to set the NCAA career passing and touchdown marks. The Conference USA Most Valuable Player had at least 300 yards passing in every game, including a 534-yard, nine-TD performance against Rice. Finished his remarkable career with 19,217 yards and 155 touchdowns with only 46 interceptions. Is one of two players in NCAA Division I history to record multiple 5,000-yard passing seasons. Coach’s son. Had a 37-14 record in 51 career starts. Team captain.

Positives:

Historic passing production. Good feet — can scramble and buy time. Quick release. Accurate short passer. Rare 48-5 TD-INT ratio as senior. Competitive leader. Is mature and loves football. Hardworking film junkie.

Negatives:

Small in stature. Is not built to withstand the physical toll of the pro game, and durability is a concern. Production is inflated by mid-major competition and a simple, shotgun-based spread offense with predetermined reads and safe, controlled passes. Limited arm strength. Pushes the ball with a low release. Forces some throws into coverage. Limited upside.

Summary:

Small, competitive system quarterback with a popgun arm whose production will earn him a look, but he lacks standout physical traits for the pro game and only chance to stick will be as a dink-and-dunk emergency QB.
