MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Here is what we thus far know about Chavas Rawlins, the kid with the name from your college football video game who might have the skills to match.
He is the fourth of four players in West Virginia's 2013 recruiting class. He'll be a senior at Monessen (Pa.) in the fall.
He stands 6 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs around 190 pounds during the season.
Rawlins is talented enough that he had scholarship offers from programs in the Big Ten, Southeastern Conference, Atlantic Coast Conference and Big 12 on both offense and defense.
He just might flip the way we think about Coach Dana Holgorsen's offense upside down.
Rawlins is what scouting services, as well as college coaches, call a dual-threat quarterback.
He beats teams and earned his scholarship offers with what he does with his right arm and long legs.
"I'm somewhat, but not entirely surprised that the West Virginia staff would recruit a quarterback with more of a reputation as a dual-threat quarterback than as a traditional pocket passer," said Chris Brown, the mind behind SmartFootball.com and author of the new X and O book "The Essential Smart Football."
"Although I don't foresee any dramatic shifts in Dana's offensive philosophy to a spread-to-run type system, he has always valued
quarterbacks with excellent feet and athletic skills for their ability to add an additional dimension to his offense."
That's Rawlins. Check the highlight videos online and see him drop a deep ball in a bucket or lead a receiver on slant.
Stick around to witness him take a shotgun snap and sell a pass, only to sprint through the middle on a draw and go untouched for a score. If that doesn't do it for you, watch him race around the end on a designed sweep and beat everyone to the sideline.
It's what you once knew with Pat White at WVU, but not what you have with Geno Smith now.
As a junior at Monessen, Rawlins threw for 991 yards and 10 touchdowns. When Mountaineers freshman Ford Childress was a senior at Houston's Kincaid High in 2011, he passed for seven touchdowns in one game and 447 yards in another.
WVU wanted both of them badly and this coaching staff doesn't mess around when it comes to recruiting that position. They want one quarterback every year and the responsibility belongs to quarterbacks coach Jake Spavital, who says his goal is to simply "find one I like."
Enter Rawlins, who had offers to play quarterback at a bunch of schools, including Georgia Tech and Nebraska, one an option offense and one a spread offense, but two that use their quarterback's legs.
