Looking at the list of the best QBs from the last 20 years, I'd say any serious college football fan could tell you where most of them played. Yes, there are few Joe Flaccos adn Rich Gannon's out there, but even guys like Ben Roethlisberger, who went to Miami, OH, were very well known during their college career.

Peyton Manning - Tennessee
Tom Brady - Michigan
Drew Brees - Purdue
Aaron Rodgers - Cal
Donovan McNabb - Syracuse
Steve McNair - Alcorn St.
Philip Rivers - NC State
And so on.
You could even go a slightly different direction and say that the last 2 number 1 picks went to Oklahoma. Or young guys like Lamar or Mahomes who were coached by actual good/great offensive coaches in Petrino and Kingsbury (something we thought we were getting in Kelly.) Watson went to Clemson obviously, and the guys that are going to be picked high in this class all went to powerhouses: Burrow, Tua, Fromm even guys like Eason at Washington started at Georgia.
