Scroggins Verbally commits to the NFL Quarterback factory

Lakewood’s Jesse Scroggins put an end to the waiting game and has verbally committed to play football for Pete Carroll and the University of Southern California.  I’ll admit that I’m somewhat surprised by the decision, but it may be the most sensible for any star quarterback aspiring to someday play on Sunday fields.

Much is made of the Trojan stockpiling of quarterback talent and the possible wait incoming recruits may endure. People will pick at an eighteen year old’s brain to find a logical reason for choosing idleness over instant participation, but it doesn’t take research or formulas to find that answer, and only a glimpse into the past to find quarterback success and clarity of choices made.

There are some quarterbacks in America with an ultimate goal of receiving the full amount of playing time during their college stay.  There are others with goals set higher, staring at the fame and riches of the NFL.  Under Pete Carroll’s watch at USC, it’s already proven that there is no pecking order and incoming recruits can instantly compete for starting positions (Matt Barkley still challenging Aaron Corp), a quarterback doesn’t have to start a single college game to earn a spot on an NFL roster (Matt Cassel), and can make just 15 collegiate starts before cashing in on NFL first round money (Mark Sanchez).  And each year, the strength of recruiting ensures all Trojan signal callers the best supporting cast in the nation, leaving very little room for failure, and assisting in their development.

USC has molded 5 NFL quarterbacks over the last 6 years (two winning the Heisman Trophy), and possess another 3 potential Sunday hurlers on their current roster.  If your ultimate goal is the National Football League, this is your pipeline.

In choosing USC, Scroggins passed over Tennessee and Florida, who were the other finalists.
