How many years ago did Hayden and Flutie play?
Thank you.
Hopefully he will grow, but we don't know that. He can always play DB.
Pat Haden played from 1976 to 1981 on the LA Rams. He played in the Probowl in 1977. He was 5'11"

Doug Flutie played 12 seasons in the NFL from 1986 until 2005 on four teams (New England,San Diego, Buffalo, Chicago) amassing 86 touchdowns, 68 interceptions, 14,715 yards on 1177 completions on 2151 attempts (54.7% completion rate). He is 5'10"

Those are not insignificant achievments.

Oh, and ex-guru, both Haden and Flutie had spectacular college careers. And they were short then. UH is not choosing a Pro Hall of Fame quarterback by awarding Corey a scholarship. They are choosing a high school prospect. His national ranking as a quarterback (statisically)warrants the choice alone. All new high school recruits are prospects, nothing more. Good choice in my opinion.
