Pass It On

Who will be the next great quarterback to come out of a Texas high school? Here are six seniors who should be making headlines on Saturday afternoons

Connor Wood, Second Baptist High (Houston), 6'4", 209 lbs. Committed to:Texas

Red River rivals Texas and Oklahoma battled over the state's top QB prospect, who is rifle-armed, country-strong and mobile.

Zach Lee, McKinney High, 6'4", 195 Committed to:LSU

A top pitching prospect with a 92-mph fastball, Lee is a drop-back passer who started for three years in the Lions' shotgun spread.

Scotty Young, Ryan High (Denton), 6'3", 185 Committed to:Texas Tech

In a system similar to the one Mike Leach uses at Tech, Young has passed for 8,655 yards and 125 touchdowns in 26 games over the past two seasons.

James Franklin, Lake Dallas High (Corinth), 6'2", 218 Committed to:Missouri

The dual-threat quarterback has passed for 2,000 yards and rushed for 1,000 in each of the past two seasons.

Jeremy Johnson, Silsbee High, 6'2", 182 Committed to:West Virginia

The Mountaineers may have the next Pat White in Johnson, who runs a 4.5 40 and is one of the top pure athletes in the 2010 class.

Case McCoy, Graham High, 6'2", 169 Committed to:Texas

The Longhorns are loaded at QB with 2009 recruit Garrett Gilbert, Wood and McCoy, who, like brother Colt, has a quick delivery and a winner's swagger.
