Reading C Trent's
blog today he said the youngest he had ever heard was for Chris Leake to Wake Forest and by Leake's freshman year of college, Leake was at Florida and the Wake Forest coach was with the Colts.
Chris' brother C.J. was one of, if not the top, senior QB recruit at that time. C.J. surprised a lot of folks by committing to WF. C.J. transferred to Tennessee after his freshman season, IIRC. Chris intended to follow big brother to UT, but by the time Chris was a senior, C.J. had been largely ignored by Phillip Fulmer at UT in favor of Casey Claussen. Chris selected Florida because he thought his brother had been treated unfairly by Fulmer.
I still think that Chris could have been a star QB if he had been in a stable situation throughout his college career. The guy could throw some of the prettiest spirals I've ever seen.
