    QB Travis Waller Commits to Oregon

    247 Profile

    Story here

    Alabama coaches are covering plenty of ground in a search for a quarterback in the 2015 signing class.

    Travis Waller, who stars at Servite High School in Anaheim, Calif., recently picked up an offer from the Crimson Tide. Waller, who stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 195 pounds according to Servite head coach A.J. Gass, is a four-star prospect on 247Sports and rated as the No. 3 dual-threat quarterback in the country by that service.

    Gass said he spoke with Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin on May 5 when Kiffin was in the area. He came to watch Waller throw and extended an offer over the weekend.

    Re: Alabama Offers 4* Dual-Threat QB Travis Waller

    He's got a really good touch passing the ball, I love how he leads his WR's, when he throws the ball to them..Most dual threat QB's hasn't developed that good of a touch in high school & this kid already has..And he doesn't run a 100yds sideways, to pick up 10yrd going north & south, he simply secures the ball(and doesn't hold it like a hot tater), and goes nrth & south running the ball & consistently picks up big chunks of yards..I hope we get this kid, but, until we prove to Dual Threat kinda QB's, that we'll actually allow them to consistently run with the ball, I just don't think we will pick-up the higher rated Dual Threat running QB's like this young stud..I hope I'm proved wrong about that & he pulls the trigger early & starts helping us recruit for this class..

    Unfortunately, looks like a natural for the Gus Bus.

    Best thing about this Is he can run too. We'll see how this pans out,From cal to Al is a big culture shock for some.Would have to know the kid in that respect. You never know he may like the south.
    This is the beginning of a new day.God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or or use it for good.What I do today is very important because Im exchanging a day of my life for it.When tommorow comes,this day will be gone forever. Leaving something in its place I have traded for it. I want it to be a gain, not loss - good, not evil. Success, not failure in order that I Shall not forget the price I paid for it.

    Based on geography alone, he would seem more natural for Oregon, Arizona, or even UCLA.

    Gus already has a QB commit for the 2015 class. Highly doubt he's considering Auburn at the moment.

    Oddly, his top two schools have not offered (per 247) - Ohio State and Oregon.

    Honestly, considering both of those schools are basically telling him, "Yeah, we know of you kid - but we're gonna wait and see if our first choice comes here before offering" - you have to like our chances.
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    I have the opposite reaction to that tidbit, which is to say that Waller seems to be making it fairly clear that his true preference is to play QB in an spread-based, up-tempo attack, and not a traditional pro-style scheme like we have at Alabama. I'd imagine he'll find one before it's all said and done, too, even if it's not necessarily Ohio State or Oregon.

    Re: Alabama Offers 4* Dual-Threat QB Travis Waller

    Now, Waller tells 247 Auburn is showing interest. That would mean AU doesn't feel confident about Torrance Gibson or Waller is trying to pressure Ohio State or Oregon into offering.

    Waller says he's "making an announcement" tonight. Notre Dame offered last week.
