Tomahawk RedNorth Salt Lake, UTChris is talking about offers
for the guy AFTER he left Missouri, not before.===And after I bought
my house, Realtors stopped calling.The kids had made his choice.Utah fans, so cute, so insecure.Grow up...
FACTchequerSalt Lake City, UTIt's laughable that
you're trying to erase the offers for a BYU recruit, something you
wouldn't even think of doing if Trent had decided to transfer to Utah.-------Chris is talking about offers for the guy AFTER he
left Missouri, not before. He was a four-star coming out of high school, but
didn't rise to the top at Mizzou and now seems to be a Jake Heaps-type
prospect.Chris is referring to that fact. Plenty of offers out of
HS, yes. But any power conference offers upon his transfer?
CBAccording to Rivals and Scou, Trent Hosick had offers fromArizona St.ArkansasBaylorIllinoisIowaIowa
St.KansasKansas St.MinnesotaNorthern IllinoisNorthwesternTulsaIt's laughable that you're trying
to erase the offers for a BYU recruit, something you wouldn't even think of
doing if Trent had decided to transfer to Utah.Trentk, a red-shirt
freshman, was listed 4th on Missouri's depth chart, but had a pretty good
spring practice.Hosick completed 16 of 31 passes for 206 yards and
two touchdowns over three spring scrimmages, also running eight times for 46
yards.He saved his most electrifying play for the final quarter of
the Black & Gold spring game, hitting Eric Laurent down the sideline for a
93-yard touchdown pass.
Whoops, I meant GRE. I was applying for grad schools. See, even reflecting
back on that experience gave me cloudy thoughts!
So, bottom line, he's a born again athlete, looking for a place where he
doesn't have to be the odd-ball. Interesting that he will feel more at
home with the moral surroundings at BYU than at a public university. I love
that he feels welcome and accepted here.As to his abilities?
We'll see. So far, so good, but Jake Heaps looked stunning on paper, and
even had a pretty decent first year.As for Tanner? Whichever
quarterback stands the best chance of winning, that first, last and everything.
All other things being equal, I love the born again Christian, but I'm
cheering for the returned missionary.
I wish well, in school and with the team. BYU is a clean school in all meanings
of the word. He will enjoy his two years there!
Love the comment how clean everything is. It really is above average, and
I've attended and worked at about 7 universities. BYU is more up to date
and has the nicest facilities of any other place I've been to. I once had
to take the ACT and the only place I could fit in my schedule was the u. It was
an overall awful experience. First, there was a blizzard that day. The school
had old building after old building. I got lost and went inside three buildings
and they all were like prison cells....all cement with those little holes...in
EACH building. It was dark and unwelcoming. I hope they've upgraded cuz
it was such a depressing place. That was only 8 years ago.Cleanliness and
the feeling of new is very attractive to people, and BYU has all that and more.
What a great school! I hope this guy is welcomed by all and has a great
CB,Please the article before commenting."He chose the
Tigers over multiple Big-12 and Pac-12 offers"So you see he DID have
offers from your so-called power conferences. Nice try to tear down the Cougs,
Come on Chris - give it a rest!
Danite, I'm a Utah alum that cheers for the Y, even over the U. I used to
wear a shirt to class, especially in front of Mr. Mitchell. It said, "My
favorite teams are BYU and anyone that plays Utah."
Stringer BellAnd maybe Thompson can help keep Utah ranked ahead of
Colorado, but probably still behind the other 10 PAC 12 members.
Pac12 member by defaultMaybe he can help keep BYU ranked ahead of
Charlotte, but probably still behind Army and ND in independents.
To the contrary, this kid has a great arm and a great knowledge of the game. If
he works out as a Cougar, only time will tell. Allot of athletes go bust (see
The Utes last few QB's) But no one knows until these guys get on the field
and do their thing. Missouri was just not the right for him so what is the big
deal. I remember people like Chris B. saying the same thing about Hall of fame
QB Troy Aikmen when he transferred from Oklahoma to UCLA. Things worked out
pretty well for him. Some guys just like to take shots for the sake of taking
shots. I hope all kids who transfer have success. Even the ones for the Utes
and even ones who transfer from BYU (Matt Carlino). If guys with harsh opinions
knew anything, then they would be head coaches and would never lose a game. But
opinions are there for us to take jabs at our rivals and make ourselves feel
good about the fact that our lives just aren't that exciting!
please.First of all, good for Mr Hosick. I would do the same.But he has a below average arm, and J Poll you dont know the first thing
about throwing mechanics after reading your comment. He is going to have a hard
time making the 20 yard out pass against a D1 defense. Looks like they ran the
veer a ton in HS and all passes were play action fakes. He is a run first kid
that does look like he has speed (for a QB). But I see why he was the 3rd
string at Missouri, and watching Maty play in HS and the huge amount of TD
passes he threw, it would be hard to beat him out anyway(and last year). I just
dont see this kid as close to the answer/seeing the field. And if Mangum
leaves-we will sink more into being a non-factor in the college football world.
Beat the "should beats" and lose to ranked opponents. We need to hire a
better recruiter-there is no way we/BYU should have no heir apparent to Taysom.
This is worse than Utah a few years ago. Wake up Cougs!
Someone needs to give Chris a calendar. Christensen wasn't at mizzou when
Hosick was...2009, prob didn't even recruit the kid. Give it a rest...utah
has 7 QBs so why would they have a scholarship for another? Most programs are in
the same situation with a transfer this late. Luckily BYU could offer him a
scholarship after this year. Good luck Trent, we're happy to have you, and
happy to see the angst you're causing with the cellar dwellers on the hill.
Thank you, Danite! As a BYU alumnus and the son of a member of the medical
faculty of the Y, I too root for both schools. I hope they both have stellar
Danite, I love your comment! Go BYU!
As an alumni of both BYU and Utah, I am one of the weird people who like to see
the good in both schools. While I unequivocally root for the Utes over BYU, I
root for BYU on all other occasions. This article highlights to me, everything
that is good about BYU athletics. BYU is a unique place and this kid felt that,
I wish him the best! Go Utes!
Enough of the "utah was a default choice for the p12" smack. It's
so played out. We are going into our 4th year of this people. Was Utah a
second choice after the Texas schools? Of course they were! Saying that the
Utes were a default choice just says that BYU was never in the conversation.
Have fun playing with Navy and Army (who also by the way have national
championships and hiesman trophy winners so quit saying that BYU has such a
decorated past, it was 30 freaking years ago)Anyway, it will be fun
to see how both QB transfers will work out for BYU and Utah. Thompson got
passed up by injury and Hosick just got beat out by the other kids on the team.
With that said, I think both kids will come in and contribute. It is
interesting that Hosick hasn't gotten any other intriguing offers, perhaps
BYU found a diamond in the rough. Good luck kid, see you in two years.
He hasn't played, so just like Kendal Thompson it's hard to say if
this will work out. Utah also got a transfer already from Wyoming. and has 7
quarterbacks on their roster. Maybe they didn't offer him because no team
need 8 quarterbacks. Ever. Don't be myopic. It's impossible to say how
this will work out but some Monday Morning QB's keep trying.
He may want to transfer back after a year there.
Yes is can run --and fast, but also illusive and strong. A true dual-threat
QB's can pass. Quick release without extra - wasted motion or mechanics.
Nice accuracy short , mid and long range. Great on the timing routes/throws.
Let's hope it translates to the next level.
Some people ask questions in their comments that are clearly answered in the
article. Do you actually read the article? He said BYU contacted him right
away and he only visited BYU so other teams weren't really given the chance
to pursue him. Also, he was a red-shirt freshman this last season so he would
have been recruited maybe 2-3 years ago at the most. How long was Christensen
at Wyoming? Doesn't seem to add up but I'm not obsessed with other
teams so I couldn't tell you for sure. Welcome aboard, Trent and good luck
at the JC. See you next spring.
Sounds like he wanted to go to K-state but they showed no interest. A coach
that helped recruit him to Missouri is now at Utah, and Hosick confirmed that
coach also showed no interest.Does anyone know if since deciding to
transfer a single power conference team offered him?
What an excellent video showing his capabilities. Mangum is going to have
competition for lst string quarterback!
Anybody remember the days when you could comment on a BYU article without Chris
B having commented first?Yeah, me neither.Welcome
aboard, Trent! Kid sounds like a fireball, I like his competitive spirit.
Looks like an athletic kid that needs to refine his arm a little bit, so the JC
route for a year will be good for him.Shaping up nicely, though.
You can never have too much QB depth. Man, the off-season is slow. The 2014
football season can't come soon enough!Go Cougars!
He's a good kid and hopefully will do great things at BYU and in this case,
unlike the PAC 10 calling up the utes, BYU was not chosen by default.
