2015 Eligibility Pipeline: QB's

We now switch over to offense and take a look at the QB personnel that will be returning next season.

BobcatIllustrated is taking a look at how the roster will look next season with scholarship players. We're breaking down our "2015 Eligibility Pipeline" and now look at the Quarterbacks returning to Texas State for the 2015 season.

**Listed year of eligibility is for 2015**

Quarterbacks (4)

Fred Nixon Jr.

Tyler Jones Jr.

Micah Thomas Jr.

Connor White So.

Returning Stat leaders:

Jones is the face of the program and he returns after throwing for 2,670 yards, with 22 touchdowns and only 7 interceptions. He also added 539 yards on the ground with 6 scores.

Departing Seniors: None

Tyler Jones, will return for his Junior season and will start for nearly all of his third consecutive year, looking to expound upon a strong sophomore campaign. Jones must work on his consistency and presence in the pocket to take his game to the next level. With a good amount of weapons still intact from last season, expectations will be riding high for Texas State to finally break through to post-season play. At the #2 spot, expect to see Connor White start with the lead as back-up, as he saw limited action in mop-up duty as a freshman. The wildcard in the bunch is incoming Utah transfer Micah Thomas. The junior has quickness and speed to be a true dual threat QB. His spring performance will be an indicator if he gets a legit shot at being #2 come fall camp.

Current Commits (2):

Blake Peterson 6'3 185lbs

L.G. Williams 5'10 190lbs

Both are expected to red shirt as freshman, however going forward both have the potential to compete for playing time once Jones' days are done in San Marcos. Peterson has more of the prototypical size and ability to play within the pocket, while still possessing the ability to extend plays with his legs. Williams, while undersized, has immense arm strength, but needs to work on honing his accuracy. L.G. also shows athleticism and the ability to stretch plays outside the pocket, but has a lot to prove with the lack of height.
