Bobby Eveld is a junior quarterback to watch for in the Class of 2010. Eveld, 6-5 and 195, is from Tampa (Fla.) Jesuit High School. He's your classic drop-back passer with a big arm. This season he split time with a senior and next year the ball is all his.
"He (Ryan James) started at the beginning and the end and I was the guy in the middle of the year," Eveld said. "Then he got hurt (collarbone) against Tampa (Fla.) Catholic. I am looking forward to next season and beeing the guy at quarterback."
As a junior Eveld threw for under 1,000 yards, five touchdowns and five interceptions.

"Bobby has a chance to be a tremendous quarterback," Jesuit head coach Joe Ross said earlier this fall. "This kid works extremely hard and he has a burning desire to be a top-notch quarterback. He's got size and great arm strength."
Eveld doesn't have any scholarship offers just yet but schools like Duke, Notre Dame, Alabama, and UCLA are showing interest and sending letters.
"I am looking to stay in Florida and like both USF and UCF. They are up there with me. If I can't stay in Florida I want to stay close to Florida. Really, I am trying to have an open approach with everything."
Eveld didn't have a favorite team growing up, although he did watch a lot of Texas football because his father is from Houston.
"I guess if I had to pick one team I root for I would say Florida. But I can tell you I have watched a lot of Texas."
