Reading this evaluation below is not what SCum needs IMO. A Kyle Allen type of recruit coming out of HS? Given the confined number of practice hours in college, pure pass pro QB's is not the way to go IMO.
SCum has been their most dangerous IMO when they have had the Dennis Franklin. Rick Leach, Denard Robinson type dual threat QB's who are also leaders. I would be much more concerned if Harbaugh signed a TP, Vince Young, Cam Netwon, Justin Fields, Braxton Miller, JTB, or Tebow type of dual threat QB. Players that can make big plays when the called play breaks down. Field Generals. Last time SCum was really dangerous on Offense in an OSU game was when they had Denard or Devin Gardner at QB. Both hurt OSU with their legs and ability to move in the pocket given their WR's more time.
247Sports National Analyst Allen Trieu compares McCarthy's game to that of Washington Redskins quarterback Kyle Allen who was a five-star back in the 2014 cycle.
"Fantastic arm talent," Trieu wrote in his evaluation. "Can make every throw on the field, is consistent with accuracy and placement and has clean mechanics. Smart, competitive kid who has excelled in big games and big situations. Is not a big big running threat, but shows very good pocket presence, ability to escape the rush and make throws on the move. Passing skills and approach to the game scream multi-year college starter at a high-level, the main concern would be pure strength and adding bulk to his frame."
