Omar Kizzie out of Richmond (Va.) Huguenot is a versatile prospect who is just starting to receive some recruiting interest.
The 5-foot-9, 170-pounder has already received mail from the U.S. Naval Academy, Kansas State, the Merchant Marines and Salem State.
In his third year at quarterback for Huguenot, Kizzie was a bright spot on a 4-6 season. He went on to complete 94 of 158 passes for 1,646 yards with 12 touchdowns and only four interceptions. He also ran for seven touchdowns.

Besides being a solid quarterback, Kizzie may find more offers with his punting ability. He averaged 39.6 yards a punt. He went on to be named first team all-dominion district quarterback, all-academic team, honorable mention all-region and honorable mention all-metro.
According to head coach Richard McFee, Kizzie is seeing interest from schools as both a quarterback and athlete.
"I think this year he learned how to read coverages better and to do his pre-snap read," he said. "Previously, he came to the line with a predetermined player he was going to throw to, but now he understands his progressions in the passing game."
McFee thinks Kizzie will see more interest in the coming months from other schools.
Kizzie is also planning to attend camps with teammate Dedrick Epps at Florida State, Ohio State, Penn State and Michigan.
