Mesquite, Texas quarterback Kelly Page doesn't have to wait for his first scholarship any longer.
After impressing this spring, Page, the 6-foot-3, 199-pounder found out this past week that Army would be the first school to make an offer. The talented Page, after rehabbing a knee injury, said it was a great feeling.
"It was pretty unexpected, but they called and let me know they were going to offer a scholarship," Page said. "I didn't know what to say. They had sent me a couple of letters here and there, but never any handwritten mail or anything. It was really out of nowhere."
Wisconsin, Minnesota, Tulsa, Arkansas, and Oklahoma State are other schools that have shown interest in the past.
"There are just a lot of schools coming down and Wisconsin brought their head coach, Bret Bielema down," Page said. "With me, Adrian (Richards and D.J. (Marshall) at the same schools, there have been a lot of coaches come through."
Page says that he's not ready to name a favorite school yet as he's just "hoping to get more offers" and see how the process goes. So what's next for the Texas quarterback in terms of visits?
"I'm not sure yet," he said. "I'm going to sit down with my family after we finish spring practice and talk about that."
