Bio: 
Four-year starter who named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA and completed 65.4 percent of his passes for 2,798 yards and 17 touchdowns with 231 rushing yards and five scores in 2017. Completed 58.4 percent of his passes for 1,891 yards, 17 total touchdowns (four rushing) and 11 interceptions in nine games as a junior before missing the final three games due to injury. Posted a 64 percent completion rate and threw for 2,722 yards and 21 TDs with three rushing scores in 2015. Threw for 1,680 yards and totaled 18 touchdowns (four rushing) as a true freshman.
Pos: 
Smart signal caller with a terrific understanding of the game. Patient, effectively sells ball fakes and stands in the pocket. Goes through progressions and scans the field looking for the open wideout. Displays outstanding awareness and command of the offense. Senses the rush, sidesteps defenders and will double pump or hold the ball until receivers come free. Relatively accurate and does not make receivers work to come away with receptions.
Neg: 
Cannot drive the ball downfield, which leads to a loss of opportunity for the offense. Occasionally puts the ball up for grabs.
Analysis: 
McGough is an accurate short-yardage passer worth bringing into a camp based on his understanding of the position.
