Blue-chip quarterback recruits bring hype and hope to campuses. The reality is those celebrated QBs are more likely to transfer than start for the schools they sign with Wednesday Florida State Seminoles Jerseys. Of the top 25 quarterbacks in the class of 2013, at least 14 will not finish their college careers where they started. According to research by Fox Sports, 47 percent of all the four- and five-star quarterbacks from 2011-14 transferred. The ones that do quickly ascend to the top of the depth chart often end up driving away incumbent quarterbacks. With national signing day officially bringing a new crop of quarterbacks into college football, AP takes a look at the situations this year four- and fives-stars are entering and what it could mean for the players already on the rosters. Quarterback rankings are from 247Sports composite ratings. Depth charts are projected based on scholarship quarterbacks on the roster and do not including incoming freshman. Class years are at the start of the 2017 season. No. 1 Davis Mills, Stanford Depth chart Ryan Burns, fifth-year senior K.J. Costello, sophomore Keller Chryst, senior Outlook Chryst severe knee injury in the Sun Bowl could clear the way for Costello, a former four-star recruit, to grab hold of the job in the spring. As for Mills, Stanford does not allow freshman to enroll early so he is likely looking toward a competition with Costello in 2018. No. 2 Hunter Johnson-x, Clemson Depth chart Kelly Bryant, junior Zerrick Cooper, redshirt freshman Tucker Israel, third-year sophomore Outlook Bryant is slated to get the first snaps in spring ball, but the competition to replace Deshaun Watson is wide open. Cooper is the most highly touted of the holdovers. Johnson will have a chance to shake things up. Clemson also has No. 20 quarterback prospect Chase Brice in this signing class, and already holds a commitment from the Trevor Lawrence, the top-rated QB in 2018. No. 3 Tua Tagovailoa-x, Alabama Depth chart Jalen Hurts, sophomore Outlook Hurts rapid rise to starter as a freshman caused the veteran quarterbacks at Alabama to scatter via transfers. That means Tagovailoa, who went to the same high school as Marcus Mariota, has a straight shot to being at least Alabama backup in 2017. Considering how Hurts hit a wall in his development as a passer at the end of last season, Tagovailoa could create some real intrigue this offseason in Tuscaloosa. Needing depth, the Tide also has No. 21 prospect Mac Jones coming on board. No. 4 Jake Fromm-x, Georgia Depth chart Jacob Eason, sophomore Brice Ramsey, senior Outlook Eason was good enough as a freshman starter to warrant optimism for the next two seasons. Ramsey is now first and foremost a punter so Fromm could be the true No. 2 if something goes wrong with Eason. Ideally, Fromm can redshirt in 2017, back up in 2018 and take over in 2019 after Eason leaves early for the NFL draft Abdul Bello Jersey. No. 5 Tate Martell-x, Ohio State Depth chart J.T. Barrett, fifth-year senior Joe Burrow, third-year sophomore Dwayne Haskins, redshirt freshman Outlook Barring injuries, it is hard to project a scenario in which Burrow, Haskins and Martell, who was originally committed to Texas AM, all finish their careers at Ohio State. They are all too talented to sit. That the long-term intrigue Nick Patti Jersey. In the short term, Barrett, the most prolific quarterback in Ohio State history, has a new offensive coordinator and QB coach and some legitimate competition for his job in 2017. 6) Jack Sears-x, Southern California Depth chart Sam Darnold, third-year sophomore Sam Fink, redshirt freshman Outlook Sears replaced Darnold at San Clemente High School. If Darnold first season as a starter goes as well, Sears will get a chance to replace him again in 2018. 7) Kellen Mond-x, Texas AM Depth chart Jake Hubenak, senior Nick Starkel, redshirt freshman Outlook All these blue chippers arrive on campus saying that they want to start as freshmen. Mond probably has the best chance. 8) Sam Ehlinger-x, Texas Depth chart Shane Buechele, sophomore Matthew Merrick, third-year sophomore Outlook The Longhorns situation is similar to Georgia, with Ehlinger stepping in behind a freshman starter. The difference is new coach Tom Herman recruited Ehlinger not Buechele and Ehlinger mobility could be a better fit in the offense. 9) Dylan McCaffrey-x, Michigan Depth chart Wilton Speight, senior John OKorn, fifth-year senior Alex Malzone, junior Brandon Peters, redshirt freshman Outlook Speight and OKorn should capably fill the position this season McCaffrey is the guy Michigan fans are dreaming about for 2018. Peters was a four-star recruit, too, but he seems in danger of getting squeezed. No. 10 Myles Brennan and No. 19 Lowell Narcisse-x, LSU Depth chart Danny Etling, fifth-year senior, Brandon Harris, senior Justin McMillan, third-year sophomore Lindsey Scott Jr., redshirt freshman Outlook You might have heard the Tigers have had some quarterback issues in recent seasons. Everybody starts even with new offensive coordinator Matt Canada, and no reason to think the new guys cant pass the holdovers sooner rather than later. No. 11 Keytaon Thompson-x, Mississippi State Depth chart Nick Fitzgerald, fourth-year junior Outlook Yep, Fitzgerald is the only scholarship quarterback on the roster. Fortunately for the Bulldogs, he a good one. Coach Dan Mullen could be in the market for a transfer to provide some short-term depth and to avoid having to burn a year of Thompson eligibility if Fitzgerald needs a reliever. No. 12 Chris Robison-x, Oklahoma Depth chart Baker Mayfield, fifth-year senior Kyler Murray, third-year sophomore Austin Kendall, sophomore Outlook Former five-star Murray, who transferred from Texas AM, will try to win the No. 2 job behind the Heisman Trophy contender Mayfield and be positioned to take over in 2018 with two seasons of eligibility left. Unless Robison changes the plans. No. 13 Sean Clifford, Penn State Depth chart Trace McSorley, fourth-year junior Tommy Stevens, third-year sophomore Jake Zembiec, redshirt freshman Outlook It looks like McSorley will have the next two seasons covered. Clifford is considered the most talented quarterback recruit Penn State has landed since James Franklin took over in 2014 Keeping both Stevens and Zembiec around could be tough. No. 14 NKosi Perry, Miami Depth chart Jack Allison, redshirt freshman Malik Rosier, fourth-year junior Evan Shirreffs, third-year junior Outlook Brad Kaaya backups have not distinguished themselves so there is a solid chance his replacement will come from the younger players. Perry wont participate in spring practice, but another signee, three-star recruit Cade Weldon, will. No. 15 Tristan Gebbia-x, Nebraska Depth chart Tanner Lee, fourth-year junior Patrick OBrien, redshirt freshman Outlook Lee, a transfer who started 19 games and threw 21 interceptions at Tulane, is the front-runner to start in 2017 which probably says a lot about where OBrien stands. The opportunity is there for Gebbia to get on the field early. No. 16 Shawn Robinson-x, TCU Depth chart Kenny Hill, fifth-year senior Grayson Muehlstein, fourth-year junior Brennen Wooten, redshirt freshman Outlook Hill is a returning starter who struggles with consistency and neither backup is considered the quarterback of the future. If Hill turnover-prone ways continue, Robinson has a chance to be the guy coach Gary Patterson turns to at some point. No. 17 Kasim Hill, Maryland Depth chart Caleb Henderson, fourth-year junior Tyrrell Pigrome, sophomore Max Bortenschlager, sophomore Outlook Henderson is a transfer from North Carolina and the two sophomores both got some game action last year. But ideally they are just holding things down until Hill, the most highly touted of the bunch, is ready. No. 18 Avery Davis, Notre Dame Depth chart Brandon Wimbush, junior Ian Book, sophomore Montgomey VanGorder, senior Outlook The early departure of Deshone Kizer and transfer of Malik Zaire means Notre Dame is banking on Wimbush for the next two seasons. Davis gets a couple of years to develop. No. 22 Bailey Hockman-x, Florida State Depth chart Deondre Francois, third-year sophomore J.J. Cosentino, fourth-year junior Outlook Hockman is an immediate contender to be No. 2. Considering Francois bouts with inaccuracy and penchant of taking hard hits, coach Jimbo Fisher could really use the freshman to develop quickly. No. 23 Braxton Burmeister, Oregon Justin Herbert, sophomore Terry Wilson, Jr. redshirt freshman Travis Jonsen, third-year sophomore Taylor Alie, fifth-year senior Outlook Herbert was a bright spot as a freshman in a bad season for the Ducks and the fact that he vaulted past the more experienced players on the rosters suggests that those guys are likely to end up as backups or transfers. Herbert will have to impress a new coaching staff in 2017. Burmeister, a late flip from Arizona, might need to be patient.
