There's been a lot of news lately about the QB battle raging in Fall camp between Lobbestael, Lopina and Tuel and it looks like the odd man out, JT Levenseller, has opted to try his luck at getting some playing time somewhere else.
Initial reaction - Understandable, if you ask me. He's a great athlete and a capable QB who in the right situation, perhaps at a lower tier school, could really have a great career. JT was a sentimental favorite of mine, being a Pullman Greyhound and all. But even with his outstanding athleticism and above-average arm, in the end, there really was very little chance of him winning the starting job at Wazzu. It's an awfully crowded group all of a sudden, with Lobbestael, Lopina and Tuel likely ahead of him on the depth chart, and Conner Halliday coming in next year. I speculated last year that he may be better used as a slot receiver, or defensive back where his athleticism could be put to good use, but this decision indicates to me that QB is where he wants to play. Good Luck JT, I'll be rooting for you wherever you land.
That's it for now. As always, GO COUGS!
