Nice while it lasted

He awoke in a blurry haze.  The inside of his mouth tasted like burnt kerosene. His body itched in places he didn’t think could itch.  One of his eyelids was stuck, gummy.  His nose was assaulted with a brutal stench; suddenly, he realized he’d come to in a street gutter.  What few clothes he was wearing were both nasty and torn.

With the news that former Baylor quarterback Jarrett Stidham has decided to take his talents to Auburn, I have a weird question — maybe not important, but definitely weird.  Has Gus Malzahn ever signed a high school quarterback who he’s developed into a good college quarterback?

Like I said, I doubt it means much in the vast scheme of things, but I can’t think of one.  Any examples out there?
