How he fits:

This is cut and dry. Kill prefers athletic quarterbacks who can run the zone read/option concepts of the offense. He does have a good arm despite an awkward throwing motion and release, and appears to have good touch. He reportedly made quite the impression at the Gophers camp on June 22nd, making every throw Coach Z asked him to and earning an offer the very next day. Also lit up the Offense/Defense All-American Bowl down in Orlando, going 15/17 for 200+ yards and 2 TDs+ en route to earning MVP honors. Surprises with his poise and calm demeanor in the pocket, much more of an athletic pocket passer than a true dual threat guy.

Chances to play in 2015:

Zero. It's better for the program and for Croft that he spends his first year on campus getting bigger, learns the basics of the playbook and can be developed slowly.
