Auburn is still going to be recruiting new QB's the next couple of years and it still doesn't quarantee Pike will have a starting spot his 3 year of college.
    Actually, the opposite is probably true. With Auburn being short on QB's, it seems highly unlikely to me that they would even consider moving Pike from QB for a couple of years. They need him to be the top QB prospect they recruited him as.

    When Zeke has time to throw, he's pretty accurate. He and Goose Cohorn spent 3 years working out together after practices running timing routes, and, many times Dustin Grutza was there working with them as well. Strong and accurate arm. Decision making? Questionable, mostly when pressured. He and Cohorn were a really good combination on the field together. Even on the run, he delivered the ball pretty well. He will only get better at Auburn with his decision making through top notch coaching and top recruit recievers. Goose Cohorn was just a warm up for what type of recievers he will thrw to at Auburn. Hopefully them recievers have Goose's hands!

    I can see him playing another position.

    So is it really true that Zeke is leaving Auburn and going to Louisville?

    I think he will play well if he isn't thrown to the wolves before he's ready. Unfortunately for him, Trotter leaving probably keeps AU from redshirting him this year.

    I still don't see a solid D I decision maker there. He does not handle pressure well.

    To end the rumors that are still going around here's a picture of Zeke at AU's spring practice.

    Life in the world of big-time college football especially at the QB position.

    AU just got a verbal from a 4-star QB from Carver,AL who says the QB coach told him "he's the guy he's been looking for."

    Every day is a new competition.

    No doubt. If you don't like to compete, you better go home.
