Scarblog: ESPN analyst and Elite 11 quarterback camp guru who placed incredibly unfair expectations on Auburn quarterback Sean White has found a new object of his ridiculous affection.

It's Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

For about a year, since Tagovailoa participated in the Elite 11, Dilfer has repeatedly hyped up the freshman early enrollee from Hawaii, and he just set a new personal best in the pole vault of over-the-top statements.

"I'd say he's probably the most gifted passer I've seen at this age," Dilfer told Tuscaloosa radio station Tide 102.9. "I worked out with Aaron Rodgers a lot when he was at Cal. Tua throws it better than Aaron Rodgers threw it as a sophomore at Cal-Berkeley. That's not an exaggeration."

If it's not an exaggeration, it's a needless and burdensome comparison.

It Hurts

Johnson led the Wildcats to a 7-4 record, including a stunning win over rival Louisville and the program’s first bowl game in 6 years, Johnson’s position atop the depth chart looked less than solid. As he faltered in the Blue-White scrimmage, redshirt freshman Gunnar Hoak shined —

Johnson, who outdueled Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson in the 2016 regular-season finale, completed just 8 of 18 passes for 106 yards, no touchdowns and an ugly interception against a collection of Kentucky’s backup defensive players.

Hoak completed 12 of 18 passes for 92 yards, 2 touchdowns and no picks while playing with the second-string offense against the Wildcats starting defense — then switched teams and completed 4 of 6 passes for 82 yards and scrambled for a 5-yard touchdown against the No. 2 D.

Fans will not forget getting a win over UofL at Papa John's.  Have forgotten Barker.

“In a perfect world, yes, we would like to scrimmage all out,” Jones said Monday night at Lee Stadium after appearing on the SEC Network. “Unfortunately, we’re not going to be able to this spring, so we’ll try to make it as competitive as possible in other ways.”

Tennessee’s annual Orange and White Game, which begins at 4 p.m. on Saturday, has been one of the most attended spring scrimmages in the SEC since Jones took over and invigorated the program.

Jones sees to it his players are available before the game with a fan appreciation function, autographs available...

Junior Quinten Dormady is a coaches’ son, and prototypical pocket passer from Texas who also possesses decent mobility.

Redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano is the confident athletic option, brash enough to suggest Tennessee is “soon to be SEC champion,” but still learning to run the team.

Redshirt sophomore Sheriron Jones has shown both a pocket presence and mobility, representing a good mix of the skills Dormady and Guarantano possess, and showing why Florida and Ole Miss also offered him scholarships when he was coming out of high school in California.

“We’ll do the quarterback challenge,” Jones said of the drill work pitting the quarterbacks against one another. “I think it’s a great measuring tool for us as coaches to see how they will compete when there’s all eyes on them and they are in front of Vol Nation.”

Jones said Tennessee will also conduct the “Circle of Life” drill, other one-on-one competitions and “some situational football.”

Projected post-spring depth chart

    Danny Etling, senior
    Justin McMillan, RS sophomore
    Lindsey Scott, RS freshman
    Lowell Narcisse, freshman
    Caleb Lewis, RS sophomore

Summer arrival: Myles Brennan

This remains Danny Etling's job to lose. Ed Orgeron anointed him as the clear leader in the competition upon the start of spring, and he ends drills as just that, leading a pack of inexperienced, young players. Orgeron has stressed throughout drills that Etling has received the bulk of first-string reps and that no other QB has beat him out.

LSU's identity on offense will be determined by its quarterback — pro-style or dual-threat. The staff continues to search for that identity, players and coaches say, as the competition continues. Etling's lead in the battle skews the offense to his talents — less QB run, for example — but Canada isn't running just one kind of offense this spring. Justin McMillan, a more nimble quarterback, is manning a scheme that's more QB run, McMillan said this spring.

A&M's battle at quarterback between three players has the look of stretching well into August camp.

"We've got three guys who are competing in a great way," A&M sixth-year coach Kevin Sumlin said on Monday of senior Jake Hubenak, redshirt freshman Nick Starkel and true freshman Kellen Mond.

"We return four guys who started on our offensive line," Sumlin said. "Which we didn't have last year."

The Aggies finished 8-5 for a third consecutive season with a third consecutive unraveling in November, prompting Sumlin to replace longtime strength coach Larry Jackson with Mark Hocke, a longtime Alabama assistant strength coach and one-time Georgia head strength coach.

Jones made it sound as though there’s even less urgency to decide between junior Quinten Dormady and redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano...

“Everyone is back on campus, and it should be a very, very productive summer,” said Jones, who has loosened previous restrictions on the players conducting voluntary 7-on-7 workouts.

“There’s no timetable to name a starting quarterback, there’s no need to, everything is about competition,” Jones said. “Both individuals took tremendous strides moving forward and obviously this summer will be good.”

Dormady had the edge on Guarantano throughout spring drills, capping the early competition with a perfect 10-of-10 passing effort in the Orange and White...

Austin Allen, Arkansas, Throwing off play action

Allen might be the most underrated quarterback in the country. His feel for pressure, timing, accuracy and decision making are excellent. Where’s he’s at his best, though, is punishing defenses with throws off play-action.

Allen has great touch and accuracy to all levels. He doesn’t have a howitzer attached to his shoulder, but he makes up for it by mixing up his trajectories and velocities when it’s needed.

Nick Fitzgerald, Mississippi State, Fun-ness

It’s probably best to call this “play making.”

3. Tua Tagovailoa will become a steady part of Alabama’s offense: It would be foolhardy to call a quarterback controversy before Week 1 of the season. Besides, Jalen Hurts was the SEC Offensive Player of the Year, according to the conference’s coaches. But here’s betting early-enrollee quarterback Tagovailoa, a five-star member of the Crimson Tide’s 2017 recruiting class, sees the field sooner rather than later — and eventually becomes a packaged part of the offense by some point in the season.

Last season, four teams started transfers under center: Florida, Kentucky, LSU and Texas A&M.

Another four started true freshmen at the position for multiple games. South Carolina went as far as starting two different true freshmen at different points in the season.

The years of Aaron Murray and AJ McCarron staying on campus for five years appears to be a thing of the past.

Additionally, since 2012, only one SEC quarterback has been selected in the first round of the NFL draft: Johnny Manziel. Over that stretch, there were 59 SEC players drafted in the first round.

Between 2007 and 2016, current SEC schools signed 67 blue-chip quarterbacks — either 4- or 5-star prospects per the 247Composite rankings. Out of that group, only 32 stayed with their original school. Thirty-three transferred, while two signed to play baseball...

Georgia football program made its annual trip to Camp Sunshine, a summer camp for children battling cancer located at Camp Twin Lakes...  And for Smart, seeing Ramsey, a backup quarterback who decided to return for his final year of eligibility, put a smile on some children’s faces...

With Ramsey back, there will be a preseason battle for the No. 2 quarterback job behind starter Jacob Eason. Ramsey initially elected to transfer before spring practice began before deciding to come back.

Since Ramsey wasn’t with the program during the spring -- although he did help out as a student assistant -- freshman early enrollee Jake Fromm took all of the reps with the second string.

Ramsey and Fromm figure to compete for second-string reps in August when preseason practice begins.

That stated, Smart doesn’t think Ramsey’s return changes how the coaching staff is approaching Fromm, considering Georgia theoretically could now have the opportunity to redshirt the Houston County product.

“I don’t think so. There will be good competition,” Smart said. “The good thing about the way we practice is all of them get reps. He’ll continue to get reps and all of those guys will rotate. It was hard for us to get quarterbacks in the spring. Now we have enough quarterbacks to get reps.”

In his career, Ramsey, a former four-star recruit out of Camden County, has thrown for 582 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions.
