There's no doubt that Graham (N.C.) Southern Almance athlete Johnathan Lloyd is a special football player, but so far schools are split on where to use him at the next level.
Lloyd already has offers from Clemson, Florida, Notre Dame and Ohio State among others and as of now he's hoping his place in college is under center.
"I only play quarterback for my team," Lloyd said. "I play corner is certain situations when they really need me against a top guy but I'm a full-time quarterback."

Lloyd's high school season ended without a playoff appearance, but he said he's been receiving good feedback about his prospects as a quarterback.
"Since the season ended a lot of teams have liked me at QB," he said. "Clemson and Duke like me there and so does Indiana. Once I get my tape finished I think a few more schools will, too."
Lloyd's focus now is putting together an offseason plan focused solely on improving his skills as a quarterback.
"I still have room to grow," Lloyd said. "My coach feels if I can keep working I can become a pretty good quarterback."
Both Ohio State and Notre Dame have offered Lloyd as a wide receiver, with the Irish paying him a recent visit.
"Ohio State offered me as a receiver and Notre Dame offered me as a slot," he said. "They both want to see me being consisting throwing the deep ball and then they'll give me a shot a quarterback and if it doesn't work I can always convert to wide receiver."
Lloyd's opportunities to take visits were limited during the season, with Duke and North Carolina being his only trip in the past month. He plans to make up for it in the offseason.
"I'm going to go to the Under Armour combine and after there I'm going to take a visit to Florida," he said. "After that I don't have anything set in stone but I'm pretty sure I'll hit the road a little bit and see more schools."
As far as his early leaders, the schools giving him a chance to play under center could have the early edge.
"I'm not going to say that but it's always something I have to think about," Lloyd said. "I have to find the right place that fits me, even if I'm not playing quarterback."
