I had a buddy tell me the young man walked back the "dream school" stuff once he figured out Aubbie wasn't offering as a qb either.  Just second hand info though.

Is he set on playing QB?  What are schools recruiting him to play?

The young man himself said, in an interview after Bama offered, that while he loves playing qb, he's open to anything.  I think he's being recruited as an athlete but I could certainly be wrong.

He was on the local sports the other night, said he took that down because of the grief he was getting from the Bama fans. He also said Auburn offered as a QB.

 I think some people are overlooking the fact that Earle is way off in Eastern Arkansas and much closer to Arkansas State University. I live in Wynne, which is pretty close to Earle, and there are a number of ASU fans in the area. Maybe he always liked ASU? And when Malzahn took over, he fell in love with that style of offense and would prefer to be the next big 'Manziel' type. Just a thought.

http://www.wholehogsports.com/news/2017/jan/27/earles-bohanon-thrilled-about-state-offer/

UA offer. Time to quit fretting.

Earle quarterback-linebacker Gerry Bohanon is now the third in-state junior prospect to receive a scholarship offer from Arkansas. Coach Bret Bielema, tight ends coach Barry Lunney Jr. and linebackers coach Vernon Hargreaves visited the school. He announced on Twitter on Friday that the Hogs extended the offer and he was thrilled. I instantly smiled; I was excited on the inside, but I was at school so I couldn't let out how I really felt, Bohanon said, laughing. I've been feeling good ever since because it's from the state I've grown up in all my life.

Bohanon, 6-4, 215 pounds, also has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Memphis and Arkansas State. Ole Miss became his sixth offer shortly after the Razorbacks offered. The Hogs are recruiting him as an athlete. He passed for 2,734 yards and rushed for more than 1,000 this past season. As a sophomore, he passed for 1,763 yards and rushed for 964 yards in eight games while also recording 46 tackles and 9 sacks in five games at defensive end. Earle Coach Albert Coleman said in an earlier interview that Bohanon is a special talent with a great attitude.

Hes one-of-a-kind in my football playing days, and Im going back to Little League to junior high to high school and playing college ball at UCA, Coleman said. I havent seen a kid with that type of a work ethic. Last spring, Bohanon had a 3.7 grade point average. As a freshman, he passed for 1,800 yards and rushed for 1,500 yards. Coleman said Bohanon can play quarterback and several other positions on the next level.

Theres no doubt on the next level he would be able to play the position the coach puts him at, Coleman said. Hes as aggressive as he needs to be at linebacker or defensive end. He would probably have some of the best hands on the team at wide receiver or tight end.

Alright, so it turns out it was something he heard from a friend who read it from a Mod on the Aubbie 24/7 board.  The mod said that Bohanon being under the impression that Aubbie was offering him as a QB was, in fact, a mistake and that possibly impacts Aubbie being his "dream school".  What it probably comes down to is that Bohanon would really like to play QB even though he's made it clear that he is willing to play anything.  He certainly seems happy with his Arkansas offer.

Well, I'm guessing if one of our competitors lies to him (ala Devin White/LSU) and tells him he can play QB just to get him to campus, we probably lose him but if he isn't going to get to play QB, then our chances are as good as any.

I hope we at least give him a chance as a QB. You know how the running backs that always seem to make that one defender miss in the backfield work out better for us? Same story here. There's gonna be a pass rush coming. We may as well get used to that.

We run a Pro Style O that requires the ability to make great coverage reads and throw the ball, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.  We want a kid who will run a little if there is NOTHING there otherwise. 

Y'all need to give up this running qb thing.

3.7 GPA is pretty impressive. Doesn't sound like grades will be an issue with this young man

AKA you can come here and try to compete at QB for a year or two but if you aren't moving up the depth chart you'll switch positions.

So all those second halves that Austin Allen was getting pounded in the backfield, the ability to  scramble away from those blitzes and hurt the defense wouldn't have helped. Nice post. You watch Clemson or Bama play?

Lamar Jackson couldn't have avoided most the hits Austin took this past year. Heck, he got sacked like 8 times against Houston! It's not easy to get away from unblocked Auburn, LSU, Bama, etc linemen and line backers I don't care who you are

What about the hits vs Missouri, Va Tech, AtM, every game we play? I just say I hope we look at him as a mobile QB and get ridiculous criticism for that. What person with a brain wouldn't want their QB to be able to avoid pressure? Just because your mobile doesn't mean you can't run a pro style offense anymore.

Nope, but those guys are few and far between. We need a little more athleticism out of our QB's, Hyatt and Noland have that.

Yeah, two best offensive lines in college football what's your point? That Austin Allen wouldn't have gotten pounded behind those lines? Good point.

I talked to Connor Noland's long-time professional QB coach, Dennis Gile, about Connor and he said he is one of the best QBs he's worked with or played with on any level. He's been around some good ones, including Tom Brady and no, I'm not saying Connor Noland is going to be the next Tom Brady but he has certainly caught the eye of some folks who know what high-caliber talent looks like. He's virtually a lock to make it to the Elite 11 finals this summer. Great kid off the field as well. Sad to see some of the "fanbase" is already selling him short.  :razorback:

No, I watched Arkansas play.  My OPINION on whether running QB's are better or worse is irrelevant.  We play a Pro Style O.  Therefore, we will never see that style QB at Arkansas.  At least not until we change coaches and bring in Gus or someone like him.

I think they'd take a Pro passer that can run some, ala Russell Wilson, but those are few and far between.

Clemson is a fair example.  Bama isn't. 

Yes, anyone would want a kid like Watson.   We would to, because he's capable of being a pocket passer first.  The Bama QB couldn't hit the ocean a outside of 10 yards.  He has to be run first.  At least at this point in his career.  He's THE reason they lost the NCG.  Was mostly enept in the passing game.

And ironically, as everyone knows, a BB player.  So there's some precedent for it right there.  At Wisky notwithstanding.

Yeah?  Who wouldn't take Russell Wilson.  Or Steve Young?  Or John Elway?  A Pro Style guy who has wheels is welcome at any program. 

Run first guys?  How many NC's have been won by them in the post wishbone era?

And to add to this Deshaun Watson himself is adamant that he is a pocket passer. He has said that he doesn't even like the Dual Threat label.

Apparently someone has said they want a run first QB, which has brought on this debate.  Never saw who made that claim.  However, I think pretty much everyone is saying they'd want a passing QB who can easily make plays with his feet when necessary.  That's just a no brainier.  There probably isn't an offense in college football that wouldn't want that.  Even Malzahn's.

I hope no one hears me comparing AA to Russell Wilson or Deshaun Watson, but I think Allen can move. That was not the problem this season. The reason he was getting hit was because of the line (call me captain obvious, I'm just saying it wasn't because he lacks mobility). I believe the line will be much much better next year, Allen won't get hit like he did this season, and we see some of the mobility we would like to see while continuing to pass the ball well.


I haven't seen Bohanon play at all, but Noland has this trait. There is mobility, but he is more of a passer for sure.

I hope no one hears me comparing AA to Russell Wilson or Deshaun Watson, but I think Allen can move. That was not the problem this season. The reason he was getting hit was because of the line (call me captain obvious, I'm just saying it wasn't because he lacks mobility) . I believe the line will be much much better next year, Allen won't get hit like he did this season, and we see some of the mobility we would like to see while continuing to pass the ball well.


I haven't seen Bohannon play at all, but Noland has this trait. There is mobility, but he is a passer for sure.

I agree with you about Allen.  He isn't dual threat or a runner by any means but he can move.  The problem was that there was a ton of pressure from up the middle -- primarily over the left guard position.

Yes, Nolan appears to have those characteristics.  I think Hyatt may too.  If so, then it's obvious this staff would like QB's that can be elusive when necessary.  Kelly may even have some wheels too for being such a huge guy.

Matt Jones anyone?

Actually Matt jones was a run first guy.  Would not excel in our offense.

We run a Pro Style O that requires the ability to make great coverage reads and throw the ball, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.  We want a kid who will run a little if there is NOTHING there otherwise. 

Y'all need to give up this running qb thing.

I think a lot of people are under the wrong impression of Bohanon, thinking he is a run first QB. He isn't, He's a pass first guy who just so happens to rack up a lot of rushing yards each year because he's such a good athlete.

I'm on record as saying that I think his best position is DE, but I'm pretty confident that he could play QB pretty well at a major University. The kid is just an all around very good athlete. He's shown it at some pretty high level camps and all-star games too, not just against 2a competition.

I'm pretty sure he goes to whichever school gives him the best opportunity to play QB though. He didn't even play defense most of the season this year because he wanted to focus on QB play and showing himself off at that position. He started playing D a lot more later in the year when colleges started asking for defensive film on him.

No, I watched Arkansas play.  My OPINION on whether running QB's are better or worse is irrelevant.  We play a Pro Style O.  Therefore, we will never see that style QB at Arkansas.  At least not until we change coaches and bring in Gus or someone like him.

Reading comprehension is your friend.

Gus will NEVER be HC @ Arkansas.

So all those second halves that Austin Allen was getting pounded in the backfield, the ability to  scramble away from those blitzes and hurt the defense wouldn't have helped. Nice post. You watch Clemson or Bama play?

See, the thing about types like you, is that if we had a mobile QB who scrambled and we get beat, you'd be hear saying we need someone much more Mallett and pro QB like that can hit throws and make reads...
