COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Since transferring from 2A high school Crane, junior-to-be quarterback Seth Doege at Wolfforth (Texas) Frenship, has been one of the more talked about underclassmen in the state of Texas.
The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder has a very quick release and a strong arm. That has brought early attention from many who believe Doege could be the next big quarterback recruit from the Lone Star state in the class of 2008.
Doege just wants to play football.
"I haven't really thought about being in the spotlight," Doege said. "I've come down with my team and I'm trying to win some games here at the 7-on-7 tournament. I'm just a guy who wants to get it done, get the ball in the playmaker's hand, and win the game."
While Doege may not be heavily involved with a recruiting process that's way off in the distance, one school may be able to consider themselves an early leader. Texas Tech is a school that Doege has high interest in and took in a camp this past summer.
Coming off an MCL injury to his knee didn't keep him from impressing.
"It went well even though I didn't do much because of my knee injury," Doege said. "I still got involved in one-on-ones and I think that showed off what I can do."
Fresh off being cleared from his injury, he looked strong during just warm-ups at the State 7-on-7 Championship Tournament this weekend at Texas A&M. Recruiting is the last thing on his mind with another big season ahead of him.
"I'm just trying to have fun and let recruiting come to me," he said. "I get letters here and there to my house, but I'm focusing on this team."
Doege threw for 2,439 yards and 27 touchdowns at Crane High School with only four interceptions last season as a sophomore. He also rushed for 526 yards and three scores that same season.
