If not for Willie we don't have Sumrall, and the administration still thinks athletics is a waste and only dilutes academics. Give credit where it's due.

Boy, "purplehaze" over at yoggie wasn't messing around when he said Tulane signed it's biggest recruit ever a few weeks ago.

HS Rankings (2021):
Rivals 9th overall nationally, #2 QB
ESPN: 67/15
On3: 36/6

Thompson is definitely up there as one of the biggest Tulane recruits/transfers of all time, I did a little digging and JP Losman was right up there coming out of high school (#2 QB overall behind Chris (son of Phil) Simms, who was a very BIG deal at the time).

https://www.espn.com/recruiting/ncf/topqbs.html

Lester Ricard was also ranked very highly as a HS student (#67 overall, #5 QB) by rivals: https://n.rivals.com/content/athletes/l ... 81?view=pv

Lots and lots of posts on Twitter from Ducks fans wishing Ty well and saying he really didn't get a fair shot. We may be really surprised at what we have. Will feel much better once school starts and he's actually enrolled.

Says so much about his character. Other than him not being a starter, this was a slam dunk commitment.

He is an academic 4+ athlete fits the Tulane profile but seems like a Horton like quarterback quiet leadership not vocal like Pratt was. That may have hindered him like Horton, vocal leadership sticks out on the sidelines. Will be good competition in the Spring, Let's pack Yulman for the Spring Game as the competition begins!!!

Great pickup, two backups competing for the job will make both better next year. Questions why was he not heir to Nix, that Oregon went to the P0rtal for two Quarterbacks. We will find out in the Spring!!! Touchdown to int. ratio not good 6 td and 4 int. Trusting Sumrall on this one but hopefully this will draw some receivers our way. Drop back passer like we have, mobility is questioned so the offense will be basically the same for both Thompson and what we have on staff. Only difference is Menarsh is more mobil than both Thompson and Horton.[/b] Very highly rated but will have to compete like anyone else. Looking for some highly rated receivers to come in


Can you please tell us what Kai Horton’s TD to INT ratio is? They’ve played about the same amount, I think Kai has one less career pass attempt.

Great job by Sumrall.

Couple of comments:
1. Seems to have all the physical tools
2. Kinds reminds me of Jordan Love of Packers but without the cannon arm say on deep posts. More of a floater on long passes.
3. Looks like he can run some but like Kai not a twitchy quick scrambler so OL will need to be better in pass protection for either QB to excel.
4. This is one of those may not want him to blow up too much for fear he gets big offers next year.
5. Kid stayed at Oregon an extra year with Nix coming back so loyalty is a plus. We also maybe can get some more NIL money of our own!

All in all, a great day. Please enroll quick!

Ty Thompson had 30 interceptions in high school vs only 4 for Horton. Ty has not started a college football game, Horton has 5 starts. Ty was a 4-5 Star player in high school, Kai was a hi 3 star close to 4 star from high school 2 state championships. But remember those on this site told me it doen't matter what Kai did in high school or what Rivals and other recruiting services thought of Kai that was in the past. Well in being fair forget what Ty did in high school what did he do at Oregon, a school that keeps bringing in transfers to rep[ace him. Similar to Kai this year. Seems equal going into the Spring!!!

I think it's reasonable to think that Coach Sumrall was impressed enough with Kai's performance this year to convince him that he will get a fair shot in Spring. Mensah has had a year to grow and we should get a decent idea of his capabilities.

What ESPN wrote yesterday:

Top QBs off the board

Ty Thompson, QB
Transferring to: Tulane | Transferring from: Oregon

HT: 6-4 | WT: 220 | Class: Sophomore

Background: Thompson was an ESPN 300 recruit in the 2021 class, ranked No. 67 overall. He has sat behind Bo Nix at Oregon and now that the staff brought in Dillon Gabriel, Thompson has decided to transfer. He appeared in seven games this season and completed 24 passes for 297 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. He hasn't had an opportunity to showcase what he can do on the field, so a lot of coaches will be going off of his potential and high school evaluations.


I am really impressed with this signing. Coach has been on the job less than a month.

Yes, the HS stuff is meaningless. I’m surprised you brought it up since Ty Thompson was a HUGE step above Kai in the rankings coming out of HS. Ty was the highest rated QB that Oregon has ever recruited. See why ANYONES HS ratings are meaningless 3 years later? That includes his HS stats, too.

Let’s focus on what they have done since getting out of HS. Kai has thrown 65 passes in D1 football, with 6 TD’s and 5 INT’s. I bring this up because you made a point of saying that Ty Thompson had a horrible TD to INT ratio, and Kai has thrown the same number of TDs and one more INT with one less pass attempt. I agree it should be a good competition in the Spring, but your boy is not the incumbent or the designated starter. Let’s see how it plays out,

Hard agree here. He left the program far better than how he found it. I hope he is able coach the entire length of his deal at UH at a mild success rate.

I agree. I don’t fault the man for changing jobs, as a coach you either move on your terms or get fired. I think he raised the program and got lucky with the 2022 season and a team with great leadership. I think he’s a good man that did a poor job making the move, but blame part of that on the way the coaching carousel operates. As far as I’m concerned a statue of him holding up the Cotton Bowl trophy would be great, but it would need to include players like Pratt, Spears, Anderson Dorian Williams and Haynesworth. Lol, and Kurt Hester too! Maybe it needs to be a huge mural as we enter Yulman. If can be done to include scenes like Jackson being escorted down the sidelines by Keys, Jenkins getting the safety, and Bauman on his back with the ball in the end zone.

There I just sold myself on a mural commemorating the 2022 season for the Yulman entrance, no statue of Willie. But he should be featured and celebrated. Thank you Coach Fritz. I hope they give you enough time to work your magic at UH.

Here's the simplest comparison. To start, Horton came out of HS as an 86, NOT CLOSE to a 4 star, which is roughly 89-90. Thompson was a 95. Horton went into the transfer portal, and the services left him at 86. Thompson went in the portal and they changed him from a 95 to an 88, strictly on the fact he hadn't played. If my Tulane math serves me well enough, I THINK 88 is STILL higher than 86. Am I wrong here?

Ok, I don’t think Ty is getting the QB1 job handed to him, but at 6 figures from our NIL pool, he’s coming here expected to win the job. I hadn’t seen that tps post. And our own FTW folks can tell us if it’s true. Pratt was making $256k, so why wouldn’t this kid get $100k? The money is why QB’s test the waters and this kid was clearly going to get a 6 figure offer. gbg won’t like it, but if the player fits right in as some of our other portal transfers have, it will be a huge win for the Wave.

looks like instead of donating to tulane athletics, your money is better spent writing a check to the FTW collective..... in my will, if my wife proceeds me in death, all insurance and material belongings, house, cars, which include a 1938 Ford model 81A convertible as well as my golf clubs go to the FTW collective and they can sell everything...if they are smart they keep the 38 Ford !!!

Here's some nice advanced analytic numbers for Ty, courtesy of the Tulane analytics guy:

91% completion rate, and 2.17 second release when blitzed. Is that good? :o :o

But you SAID very few players get six figure NIL deals. That's your words, not mine.
