When Jefferson signs,

will he be the most highly regarded out of state QB successfully recruited by UA since Joe Ferguson?

Ryan Mallett, who had to be recruited when he left Michigan. As a freshman, probably. We’ve had some successful out of state QBs since, including Quinn Grovey, but I don’t think they were that highly regarded.

Mallet is a Texarkana kid though. If you know about Texarkana you know that it is heavy in Arkansas razorbacks. As a twin city he played his football about a mile from the state border. He doesn’t register as a true out of stater to me, I guess.

Oh sure. I believe the Mallett family actually lived on the east side of State Line Avenue at the time. But he did attend a Texas high school.

Ricky Town was a 5 star.
Hyatt was higher ranked.
