Poll of the Week: Are you concerned about the future of the quarterback position for Pitt?

Are you surprised by the lack of success Paul Chryst has had recruiting quarterbacks?

Paul Chryst's work with quarterbacks has been well documented.  His success with Russell Wilson, Tom Savage, Scott Tolzien and others have many Panther fans excited about the future of the position for the Panthers. Still, some are starting to doubt his ability to continue to bring talent into the system under center.

Chryst began strong holding onto prizedt recruit Chad Voytik after the quick exit of Todd Graham and he plans to be the starter this season. Chryst also guided Tino Sunseri to a strong senior year despite some ups and downs. Then, some chinks in the armor were reported when Tra'von Chapman landed at Pitt but was later asked to leave the team after some legal issues. Another shock wave came down when Wade Freebeck flipped from the Panthers to Vanderbilt, leaving Pitt with only one commit at the position in last year's class.

Some felt it was just a speed bump, but recent top priority recruits gave detractors even more ammunition when Alex Malzone picked Michigan over Pitt and Kyle Schurmur said yes to Vanderbilt (where did Vandy come from) over the Panthers in the past few weeks. Keller Chryst, the head coach's nephew, also passed on Pitt. Now the Panthers are down to their next round of choices.

With all of that in mind, how do you feel about the team's current quarterback stable as well as the future of the position?
