    Quietly becoming another Texas HS great. Beating Katy 28-14 in the Semis for Texas big-schools, he faces national top-5 Allen in the Championship. Hope his ankle (or meniscus) is all right and he can play and show us all why he really is a big-time QB.

    I reiterate:

    This kid can play. May have been a Plan B to Jones but this kid isn't just roster filler.

    Love that he comes from that program and I'm guessing his rating would be higher had he been somewhere else and been a two or three year starter. Welcome aboard, Suh!

    Stop me if you have heard this one before.

    A young, talented quarterbacks coach tells Urban Meyer about a relatively unknown quarterback prospect from Texas and convinces the head coach to bring him to Columbus.

    Much like Tom Herman sang J.T. Barrett's praises in 2013, Ryan Day got Matthew Baldwin on Meyer's radar midseason and before Baldwin's high school season was over, he had committed to become the latest quarterback to become a Buckeye.

    After a relationship with Emory Jones appeared to sour, Ohio State was back in the market for another signal-caller in the 2018 class. Meyer said Day came to him with game film from one of Baldwin's games during Ohio State's game prep for then-No. 2-ranked Penn State, which caught him off guard.

    "We're sitting there getting ready to play Penn State, and he's coming up to me saying, 'Hey, let's watch this kid from Lake Travis,' and I'm ready to pass out, saying it's 10:30 at night, I've got 3rd-down-and-6 in my mind and we're trying to watch another quarterback," Meyer said. "But that's the way it is. And so you're squeezing a recruiting process into a small time frame."

    Before evening turning on the game film, there was something off the field that caught Meyer's eye. What stood out about Baldwin to Meyer was his loyalty to his high school program which he could have easily transferred out of after not starting until his senior season.

    "I saw a kid that had a chance to leave Lake Travis, and nowadays every kid, I'd say 90 percent of those players leave because they have to go get theirs, and here's a guy who was loyal to his school," Meyer said at his signing day press conference. "It was a great high school, one of my first experiences down there. That's as good a football as there is in the United States of America."

    Knee buckled and he went down on first play from scrimmage. Poor guy. Pray it's nothing serious.
