    UL Football GSU's Shai Werts Transferring to Louisville

    Wow,

    I just read that Shai Werts (who seems to have been at Georgia Southern for 100 years), is transferring to Louisville.

    Other FCS QB's of note with new teams:

    LSU Peter Parrish is transferring to Memphis.
    Texas backup Ja'Quinden Jackson is transferring to Utah
    Georgia Tech James Graham is transferring to Georgia Southern
    NC State Ty Evans is transferring to Texas State
    Duke Chase Brice is transferring to App State
    Mizzou Taylor Powell is transferring to Troy
    La Tech Jakson Thomson (no landing spot as of yet)
    UL Clifton McDowell (no landing spot as of yet)
    Troy Parker McNeil (no landing spot as of yet)
    ULM Colby Suits has decided to return to ULM
    USA Chance Lovertich is transferring to Mississippi State
    Coastal Fred Payton is transferring to Mercer
    Arkansas State Logan Bonner is transferring to Utah State
    La Tech Westin Elliot (no landing spot as of yet)
    Furman Darren Grainger is transferring to Georgia State
    ULM Jared Porter (no landing spot as of yet)
    Weber State Jake Constantine is transferring to Rice
    Liberty Chris Ferguson (no landing spot as of yet)

    Many of these above are and/or will be backups, but some have a chance to play. I listed the Rice QB, because we are to face Rice in 2022.

    Werts is making a position change to WR. No reason to stay at GaSo.

    He’s looking for a craft he can parlay into the NFL.

    Yes it is. But they are getting a big time transfer from Georgia tech. He has not played much there but was a 4 star recruit out of high school.

    He had 20 FCS offers out of high school including

    Georgia tech
    Alabama
    Michigan
    Arkansas
    Kentucky
    Va tech
    Miami
    Nc state
    Ok state
    App state
    Georgia southern
    West Virginia
    WKU
    Tulane
    Cincinnati
    Georgia
    Miss state
    Ole miss
    UCF
    Maryland

    Not to mention they return a player that has been in their system for 4 years in Justin Tomlin.

    I would assume that Graham will come in with the edge as he has played and started at GT. While his numbers were not outstanding they were pretty good when he played. He was rated as the 17th best athlete in 2017 class. He only played in 3 games his true freshman year, so he was eligible for a RS.

    As a RS Freshman in 2019, he rushed for 429 yards in 11 games and 3 TD's. He also completed 87 of 193 passes and 12 TD's and 7 INT's and 1164 yards.

    He is a very similar player to Werts. Can pass when needed to, but usually it is when teams are putting 8 in the box and playing man to man on the corners expecting the run. But is very capable of breaking runs for large chunks, specifically in a triple option offense with other weapons in the backfield. If he is decent they will be OK specifically considering they get back 2 of their top 3 running backs in:

    #2 RB JD King
    #3 RB Logan Wright

    They do lose Wesley Kennedy who was kicked off the team late in the year.

    I wanted to correct it but the edit button is gone on my post. Not sure what is up with that.
