UK Recruiting Tim Couch’s Nephew, Dual-Threat QB Todd Futon

The Kentucky Wildcats already have a solid future at the quarterback position. Stephen Johnson should be back for his senior season next year, and hopefully Drew Barker will return healthy in 2017. The Cats also have highly touted freshman Gunnar Hoak, as well as two big time commitments in Danny Clark and Walker Wood. Still, it’s never a bad idea to have a backup plan, which is why the Wildcats are actively recruiting the nephew of former UK legend Tim Couch, dual-threat quarterback Todd Futon.

Futon, a homeschool student, has been been praised for his versatility in the pocket. He’s shown the ability to stand in the pocket like his uncle Couch, but he’s also resourceful enough to escape the pocket and collapse defenses with his mobility.

“I like Todd Futon because of the adaptability he provides,” said UK head coach Mark Stoops. “I still plan on using our other quarterbacks, but if there’s ever a situation where my wife is mad at me or something, I can just pull Todd Futon out of the locker room and use him.”

While Futon should provide the Wildcats with multiple options next season, he still has several things to work on. He rarely seems comfortable when he’s facing a heavy pass rush, and he often folds under pressure. He also sinks down in one spot and makes a lot of weird noises.

    KSR, please do not waste space on this garbage. It is not funny, not entertaining and is an insult to your otherwise informative and entertaining web site.
