Cadet wants to be a QB

One thing is certain, Miami Central Travaris Cadet knows where he wants to play at the college level.
The 6-foot, 200-pound dual-threat quarterback/athlete prospect has an early scholarship offer from Tennessee and his coach has indicated that Virginia Tech will extend a written offer soon.
Florida, Florida State, Kansas State and Miami (Fla.) also are recruiting Cadet.
The Hokies and Vols, however, currently are at the top of Cadet's list. Both like him as a quarterback. The Seminoles and Wildcats do, too, but the others like him as an athlete.
"I'm not scared to play any position," he said. "I want to play quarterback, but I am open to playing any other position."
Cadet, who figures to be one of the top dual-threat quarterback prospects in the Southeast in the class of 2007, feels like he brings a lot to the table as a signal caller.
"I'm complete," he said. "You've got some cats that can just throw and some cats that can't read the defense or can just run. I can throw, run and read. I'm the compete package."
He believes that Virginia Tech could be the right fit for his ability under center.
"I like Virginia Tech's system," Cadet said. "It's a system that will fit me. They have had many quarterbacks come through there that were also great athletes. System-wise, they are a great fit.
Tennessee, which has highly-regarded recruiter Trooper Taylor on Cadet, also is an attractive situation.
"I also like what I see with their system," Cadet said. "I mean, they have a pocket quarterback right now in Erik Ainge, but I know they had Brent Schaeffer up there.
"I also like the school and the coaching staff. I am looking for a good coaching staff to play for, sot that's also going to be important."
Florida State is third, followed by Florida and Miami (tied behind the Noles) and then Kansas State.
The Wildcats' system has also caught Cadet's attention.
"That also seems like a good fit."
Cadet, who rushed for 400 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior, doesn't plan to make a decision any time soon.
"I'm not going to decide too early," he said. "I don't want to make an early commitment."
