North Last Vegas (Nev.) Canyon Springs quarterback DeVonte Christopher has already taken three of his official visits but just saw one of the schools he visited let go of their head coach.
Christopher, 6-1, 180 pounds is one of the top dual threat quarterbacks in the West region. He's coming off a big senior season that saw him throw for 3,285 yards and 44 touchdowns to go with 526 yards rushing and eight more scores.
While some schools like Christopher as an athlete, the majority of the schools recruiting him want him to play quarterback.

"Colorado has offered me as a defensive back and Arizona has offered as a receiver," Christopher said. "Everyone else likes me as a quarterback and that is definitely my preference as well."
Christopher has taken official visits to Nebraska, Colorado and Stanford and would like to take all five trips before making his decision.
"I know Nebraska just fired Coach Callahan but I'm still looking at them," Christopher said. "I want to see who they hire because I like the school a lot. The fan support there is incredible. They're so faithful and I've never seen anything like that before. That's really what is keeping me interested, just how great those fans are.
"Stanford has great people there and I met some of the smartest peope I've ever seen. I like the coaching staff a lot and the education at Stanford is second to none.
"Colorado has great fan support as well and I like the city of Boulder a lot. It's close to Denver and I'm a city guy being from Vegas and all.
I haven't set up my last two visits yet but I'm really interested in Utah right now. They have been recruiting me hard for awhile and I want to check them out and get a closer look at the program. Oregon and Arizona are two others I'm very interested in as well.
"The most important thing for me in picking a school will be my relationship with the head coach and position coach. I want to play for a players coach- someone that I can feel comfortable talking to about anything, not just football.
"I also have to be comfortable with where I'm at and the people at the school. Basically, I'm just looking for the best overall fit for me athletically and socially."
