Travis Eman is another “is he/isn’t he” D-1 quarterback.
The two-star recruit out of Buffalo is on the Orange radar as a pigskin thrower, but is listed as a “dual-threat” quarterback (read, likes to run).
So far, Buffalo and TCU have made offers to the 6’0, 200 pound Eman. The big reason? His 40-yard dash. Right now, he’s clocked down at a 4.6 second-40, according to¬†Rivals. That’s incredibly quick for a quarterback.
Will the ‘Cuse end up putting a scholarship on Eman’s doorstep?
This seems eerily familiar to the recruitment of¬†Jawan Simmons. The athletic quarterback was pumped up by his big arm and physical tools, but never had legit offers materialize to be considered a top-tier quarterback. In the end, he decided on prep school to try and get more exposure.
This might be a “safety look” for the Orange. Eman’s senior year will decide how many coaches call. However, if the ‘Cuse can’t find two reliable quarterback recruits, you might see coach Marrone express a little more interest.
