He is at least as quick and elusive as Williams without Williams’ elite top end speed. I think pease is probably a more natural thrower of the ball and probably a more natural qb, but perhaps a weaker arm than Williams, but a better motion. Peasley is not the athlete Williams is, but we need a qb and not some elite athlete masquerading as a qb. This makes me feel a bit better about next year
I sure hope you are right about Williams speed and athleticism because Peasley's calling card has been as a legit low 4.4 guy who has some legit pocket quickness to boot. He would be an ideal triple QB and if he can get consistent in the throw game and see receivers a bit better he could be a monster to deal with because of his ability to torch a D with his legs when things break down. He averaged about 9 yards a carry.

If Williams is faster than that I'm excited for the pickup. I really like Peasley and hope he can put it all together.

Look at the New Mexico highlight at the 10:30 mark here to see what I'm talking about. He's had 3-4 similar runs. I know its the Lobos but still...

Have a look at the highlights from our game against the Lobos last year...

He is a better thrower than Williams. As long as Wyoming’s coaching staff doesn’t screw him up.

Peasley comes in at around 6 minute mark on video below.

If he stayed at usu, do you think he beats out Levi and their other guy?

Not sure. I think Peasley is a better thrower than Levi is now.

That may be because Utah St. has better Qb coaching and offensive coaching than Wyoming does. Levi may get better at Utah St with better coaching and Peasley may get worse at Wyoming because of coaching.

That’s why it is hard to say. After this many years, I can definitely say the problem with Wyoming’s QB’s under Bohl is the coaching. It isn’t the players. They have brought in plenty of guys that could throw the ball well when they got to Laramie. For some reason every one of them gets worse the longer they are with this coaching staff. So I don’t really think it matters who they bring it at QB.

They had a first round pick at QB in Josh’s last year at Wyoming and finished 105th out of 130 teams in scoring offense. So that pretty much tells me everything I need to know on who is at fault for the QB and offensive woes. It’s all coaching. Until the whole offensive staff is changed it won’t get better, or maybe the head coach.

Peasley is a hard one to gauge with so little game time film to watch.

He's quite the athlete and supposedly has 4.4 speed and it looks like that is about right based on a few of his in game TD runs. Looks like a QB in the style of Brett Smith.

He looks like he might be a better passer than Chambers or Williams but who knows? Problem is he basically fits Bohl's template, a QB who is more athlete than QB. It's clear by now for this system to work you need a QB who is QB first and a athlete second.

Twitter police are after me for being negative. I hope the kid comes in and makes his mark but it's going to be an uphill road for him with this system.and coaching staff. If the best we can do in the portal with a starting spot pretty much guaranteed is an injury prone backup QB from Utah State that tells you all you need to know about the state of the program.

He was not going to beat out Bonner next year but Bonner gets hit 30 times a game and plays on one leg until he finally has to come out so there is playing time for the backup. I know the staff really liked him and even though Bonner was Anderson's guy gave him every chance in the world to win the job. I have no idea on Williams and the guy who came in and won our bowl game will be pushing for that spot too.

However, in a system that values a running QB with fewer reads and play action like Wyoming I think Peasley has the capability of being a stud. He's got to get better at finding the right guy and getting the ball out though. He also has an injury history, ACL in 2018, Shoulder this year. Who knows? I like him though and as a Wyoming resident I am excited to watch him and hopefully see him come around.

Peasley is still really young developmentally for being around 3 years. He tore his ACL his freshman/redshirt year in mop up duty as the 3rd string guy behind Love, missed all of 2019, and was part of the Gary Andersen Sh#t show last year. I think he can be good but we'll see.

Elephant in the room.

Let's put it this way, I doubt Peasley was first option out of the Portal. The Snow College kid didn't get offered last year.

Yeah, on the surface this looks like a cluster.

Peasley will be better than Levi and Chambers. He can beat New Mexico.

He can actually throw the ball.

I agree he can throw the ball BUT that was in Utah States system with coaches who seem to be able to coach the forward pass well. The question is…. will he get worse at Wyoming because of the coaching or will he still play decent in spite of the coaching?
