Value of GPA and Formation IQ Topic

I'm currently recruiting a QB and have 2 guys considering me.  They are very similar players with one being rated 2 points higher by GUESS.  Who ever I sign will be redshirted then probably start as a RS FR.  The higher rated guy has a 2.5 GPA and 2/8 formation IQ of the sets I wanna use.  Lower guy is 3.7 GPA with a 14/12 formation IQ.  Leaning toward the lower guy due to the formation IQ.  Decent idea or don't even look at GPA/IQ?  Ty

what about their potential?  Similar potential?

Lower guy has a better potential and higher WE another reason I'm leaning his way.  Figure by the time they are SRs their attributes will be pretty equal.  However IQ will never catch up.

I'd go with the lower guy.  I always yield to better potential.  And if they are going to start, the potential is going to help.  Bet the bottom guy ends up the better player without the formation IQs.

The way formation IQ has been explained, it's only a 4% difference in the adjustment between minimum and maximum FIQs, That means that in practice, the difference between the two players will be significantly less than 1%. Don't even look at GPA/IQ unless everything else is equal.
