Just a blurb from ESPN:

As signing day approaches, coaches are looking for the next great quarterback to guide them to the playoffs. Quite a few teams struggled with quarterback play this past season and part of those struggles might be attributed to the 2013 recruiting class. Of 72 quarterbacks who signed with Power five programs in 2013, 59 did not finish their careers with the team they signed with. That class experienced an incredible amount of attrition in one form or another and would have been key contributors at this stage in their careers.

Only one QB plays and usually for multiple years so this makes sense. RB backups get to play, WR, etc. But QB it's usually all one guy. Can't wait to see how ours shakes out. It's going to be an interesting spring for us.

Did the article mention what it is in a typical year? That certainly seems high, but it is hard to tell how high w/o something to compare it to.

Seems normal, looking at our current roster, if one of the young guys wins the starting job I could see Rosier, Shirreffs, and the other two young players not starting, to transfer. That's 4/5, or 80% of our QB recruits would move on to a new school.
