McGuffie as a freshman showed a lot of promise between Rich Rod and three concussion...I can't blame the kid for transferring home. Once he transfered home, he was a solid player for Rice. If Switzer puts up similar numbers that will be a hit for UNC because he is only a 3* kid. McGuffie is only a bust because he was the next coming as a high 4* kid.
I love Garrity as much as the next guy (I think he has Norwood potential), but there is no guarantee that he will succeed either. Its not a lock. At worst, like I said, I think Switzer will be a good returner.
McGuffie was also a RB while Switzer isn't. I don't think that is a good comparison.
This. Garrity a great value and alternative to Switzer IMHO.

Honestly, GRS, these are the kind of threads that fans of other teams would laugh at. I think I know what you're getting at, but comparing a 140 pound walk-on to a high 3* kid isn't the way to go about it.
Richy Anderson would be a much better comparison. If I remember correctly, when we were recruiting Switzer, people were talking about him playing both WR and RB, kind of a utility guy.
McGuffie just got so much pub for doing this..........
I worked with an Aggie who was visibly depressed the day he declared for Michigan. He really reached legend status down here in HS.

I know, my point was more that the OP made it seem like McGuffie was just a subpar BCS-level player. He was playing solid for a freshman, especially before the concussions hit. If I was a UNC fan that is all I can ask from a 3* kid....is to play solidly.
