Missouri City (Texas) Fort Bend Marshall four-star standout J.W. Ketchum has helped lead the Buffalos to a 21-4 record as sophomore and junior at quarterback.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pound playmaker has completed 109 of 209 passes for 1,347 yards and 22 touchdowns while rushing for 2,337 yards and 42 touchdowns on 206 carries over the last two years, and the college attention came early and often.
Currently Ketchum holds offers from Baylor, LSU, Texas, Texas A&M, and Northwestern, and he is trying to get a grasp of everything on the recruiting front.
"I haven't really gotten a good understanding," Ketchum said. "That's why I'm taking a few more visits and I'm looking around and seeing what's going on.
He currently does not have any junior day visits on his schedule, but he does hope to take a few visits this spring.
"Hopefully I'll try to get back up and visit UT and Baylor and see what's going on," Ketchum said.
As for making a decision, he plans to take his time.
"No sir, I don't plan on making an early decision," Ketchum said. "My decision and my process will take the whole time. I plan on making a decision at one of the All-American games."
For now, Ketchum's focus is on the track where he is competing in the 100m, 4x100, and the long jump.
"Really right about now I'm more focused on track than football because track season and as you remember we went to state last season," Ketchum said. "My main focus right now is track."
