Question is which team has the best QB bench strength for the next few seasons: LSU or Alabama?

With two highly touted freshmen (Hurts & Barnett) already on the depth chart... I hope this kid is ready to hold the clip board for atleast 3 years.

Let's see, If Hurts or Barnett starts this year, that means they'll be sophomore when this kid enrolls. More than likely, he'll redshirt that year. By the time he's reading to come in and fight for the job, Hurts and Barnett will be juniors and he'll be a freshman still.

So, starting his junior and senior years isn't a bad deal.

Saban is not going to start a true freshman at QB. Even though he had a decent Spring game, Hurts will be redshirted.

This can be said of most places in the SEC, but Honolulu to Tuscaloosa? Talk about culture shock.

Jesse Williams came from Australia. Seemed to work out fine.
