Corbin Louks, who entered fall camp at No. 1 on the Utah depth chart at quarterback, will be transferring to Nevada according to several media outlets. He was passed on the depth chart by two players last week and briefly considered a position change before deciding to transfer.

    Am hearing he will probably move to defensive back. They have two Frosh redshirts (Fales-Palma, and Maggleby-Folsom) that will be very good. Louks has the speed, but not the passer of the two. Plus there are sophs right now that have the ins after Kapernick. That’s why Granziano, former EBAL QB, transferred out of Nevada.

    All the quotes I’ve read from Louks say he’s transferring so he can play QB.

    One example:

    “The team needs to concentrate on the game with Utah State and I don’t want to be a distraction. Transferring will give me the opportunity to play a position I know and love. I’ve really enjoyed my two years here at Utah and have made some lifelong friends. I want to thank the coaches, players and fans for all their support.”

    And for what its worth, Graziano went to Campolindo.

    although corbin wants to play qb, we dont know what’ll happen in the future. because of having to sit out the year, he’ll have to compete in spring practice and training camp, and hope he doesn’t lose any ground – again. interesting point is he joins former srv teammate zach madonick at nevada, may give him a chance to show off the coaches what he did at srv. one of the fastest guys, would love to see him run more like the qb’s at oregon..

    kinda sucks all our D-I qb’s get unlucky and end up transfering.. sam keller leaves arizona state for nebraska, then got hurt and didn’t get drafted to nfl like dennis miller predicted.. louks may very well have better luck at nevada because he comes with very good skills and some prestige for lack of a better word – proven winner(ncs, the sugarbowl), quality teammate, smart player, etc

    here’s hoping southwick doesnt get the same treatment. was told he was the only qb in draft class, then boise state gets comparable, statisically better, qb from georgia. competition shouldnt be a problem, but looks like it is. rudy carpenter beat out keller at arizona state, the njcaa mvp transfer at utah bests louks(although the freshmen wynn probably would have too with that arm).. just unlucky how the ebal gets in D-I. and not just srv. theres no kyle wright in nfl, but san leandro’s dennis dixon (all 2003 class) has the superbowl ring. i like him but oregon was the difference; helped dixon master all his natural skills in that offense. how superstitious it can all be..

    not as hyped up as it seemed to be. what i want to be isnt what i expect and you gotta

    as a side from the qb misfortunes, roy helu at nebraska looks to have a monster year and hope the best for him. not sure how many other position players from the ebal are in their primes now in D-I. cal seems to always have some on their roster, but you never hear about them. stanfords ryan whalen, from monte vista, hope he does well, same with former hs teammate drew mcallister at usc. think they’ll start. nice that you see more pac-10 games, but hopefully we’ll see bowl games. would definitely like to be able to follow more guys from the league in college, but the whole east bay and bay area is well represented.

    kyle you did a where are they now D-I thing a long time ago, would be interesting to see now, but we know for the most part where they are

    I’ve started putting together the D-I list for this year, it should be up today or tomorrow.
