There’s a new quarterback at Mississippi State.
From Palo Alto to Starkville should be one helluva culture change, but if Leach is getting the 2018 version of Costello, he’s gonna have a big piece in place for the Air Raid.
Costello earned second-team All-Pac-12 honors for Stanford in 2018, when he started all 13 games and passed for 3,540 yards, the second-highest single-season total in team history. He completed 65.1% of his passes with 29 touchdowns, and led the Pac-12 in both pass efficiency (155) and yards per attempt (8.57).
Leach has had a good run of taking transfer quarterbacks and making them into something special. Will it work in the SEC? Who knows? Costello may even turn out to give Kyle Trask a run for his money.
