Norwalk Hour is reporting that former Illinois QB Chandler Whitmer verballed and will be coming to UConn.

Looks pretty good. Had good numbers last season for a strong JUCO program.

In 21 games, Whitmer was 180-for-316 for 3,022 yards (251.8 per game) and threw for 25 touchdowns. He had 14 interceptions.

Awesome get for coach P. Anyone know how many years of eligibility?

This should allow Nebrich and Cochran to redshirt next year.

Hopefully the four interceptions he threw in his last game were an anomaly. But it seems to be a significant upgrade. Would be nice to see a four-star live up to that billing at Rent.

I love the optimism, but can we wait until the kid gets to CT before annointing him the next savior?

Tyler, Zach and now Chandler. Three's a charm?

With Chandler there has to be a Friends joke somewhere.

Maybe Chandler hands off to Joey (Williams)

He'll have a bigger playbook than handing off to Donald Brown.

Can't fault Coach P for standing flatfooted. He has taken an aggressive stance on recruiting.

Very curious to see how the QB situation shakes down after spring ball.

More QBs just gives P. more chances to pick the wrong one.

Doing a little research, Whitmer was ranked by Rivals as the most accurate Passer in the Nation coming out of High School. After watching ZF and JM these last couple of years, I welcome the site of two (2) QBs coming into the program this year that have been touted for their accuracy.

The voice of doom strikes again. Did you predict the end of the world a few months ago, or was that somebody else?

McEntee is done.
They keep the McCummings Husky package.
Cochran the future?????
Is Nebrich a fighter or a transfer?

Nice pick up. Like what the staff is TRYING to do. Upgrade the QB position in the future with Cochran, upgrade the QB position in the immediate term with Whitmer. JMac himself will be better simply because he will now know how to prepare to be a starter. I don't know if he can overcome some of his physical limitations like his slowness of foot, but he knows the speed of the game going into next year.

I hope this commitment is true.

Pal won't be happy until Nick Williams is QB.

He still has to learn the playbook, Johnny Mac has a leg up on him, if Mac can play like he did in the second half of the Cincy game, I won't have a problem with him starting, but all in all, very happy to have the young man on board.
