(VIDEO) BLOG: Today the media got a chance to meet with junior college transfer quarterback Zack Stoudt for the first time in person.
Stoudt transferred to Ole Miss after playing last season at Iowa Western, and the year before that at Louisville.
The 6-foot-5 drop-back quarterback was sort of a superstar in recruiting from an interview standpoint, and he didn’t disappoint at the Indoor Practice Facility’s meeting room today.
Below is the interview in video form:
WHAT WE LEARNED FROM STOUDT:
—Stoudt, who played prep ball in Ohio, said right off the bat that he has been impressed with the southern hospitality that he’s encountered since arriving in Oxford.
—With new QB coach David Lee, Stoudt feels that all of the quarterbacks are “on the same level.”
—”We’re all going to get our opportunities. There is no ‘guy’ right now.”
—Today was the first day the QBs went over any plays from the playbook. Right now, things are very basic and they’re focusing on learning the terminology.
—Getting bigger, faster, stronger: Stoudt is at 225 pounds right now and wants to get up to 230 by the time spring starts and 235 by the start of the season in September.
—Thoughts on the new WRs: Six showed today to throw around. Ja-Mes Logan “is impressive” and Melvin Harris “has a huge upside.” Stoudt added that hopefully some more guys show up to throw around on their own as the spring continues.
Below is a highlight video of Stoudt:
West Virginia quarterback transfer Barry Brunetti was also made available to the media for the first time today. Video from his interview will be posted tomorrow. (February 16, 2011)
