08:18 AM ET 05.12 | Tyler Gabbert can apparently cross another Tigers uniform off the list. The Clemson football staff does not have an interest in Gabbert, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. Gabbert, the younger brother of NFL first-round pick Blaine Gabbert, announced his intention to transfer on Monday. His father told the Columbia (Mo.) Tribune that his son was considering Clemson as a destination, with the Tigers being an attractive option because of their unsettled quarterback situation. The 6-foot, 190-pound Gabbert is not thought to have the potential to develop into an elite quarterback like his brother did at Missouri. Tyler Gabbert was the 17th-rated quarterback in the nation in the 2010 class according to Rivals.com, and lost out in a quarterback competition this spring.

Everytime I see a QB article, I think "We want him!" because I'm so used to UTK not having a good QB over the last few years. It's nice to not be in that position this year.

1. He is not an "elite" prospect ... according to some.
2. His presence could dissuade a higher rated QB recruit from joining the program in the next several recruiting cycles.

No reason to bag on him.

He'll have to walk on at a decent college. He should set his sights on a mid-major or division 2 school. Nothing against those schools.... He should think about a Central Michigan or a UAB or a UCF.

6 foot 190 is a little small for elite status.

It doesn't sound like he has his brother's pedigree, does it?

I think maybe he should try Boise or TCU.

Stir, stir, stir.....

Seems like the Gabbert boys have trouble making a decision and sticking with it.

But I agree with what you are saying. The kid needs to go to work plain and simple. It won't be handed to him.

Interesting how the guys that make it, for the most part, have talent AND work their butts off.

Was this a shot at Jamarcus Russell, Ryan Leaf, et al?

If so, good aim :)

QB depth... Bray is a lil skinny :)

True. But Simms is the backup and if Dooley could count, Simms would have beaten LUS last year. :-)
