Christopher has been impressive at both camps he attended. The first one he attended was the NIKE Camp held in Los Angeles back in April and most recently the Elite 11 Camp held last week in Las Vegas.
"I feel I did really well at the Elite 11 camp," Christopher said. "I went as a quarterback and Coach (Bob) Johnson told me I did good and a couple of other coaches told me I have excellent footwork.
"It was an overall great experience for me. I was able to compete with some of the top-ranked quarterbacks in my class like Nick Crissman, Sean Renfree and Kyle Parker."
"I'm pretty much done with camps now," Christopher said. "We are going to participate in some local passing league tournaments.
Though Christopher had an outstanding camp playing quarterback, he is primarily being recruited as an athlete.
"It makes me feel good that colleges think I can play multiple positions," Christopher said. "That means I can help my wherever they need me.
"Right now I don't have any favorite colleges," Christopher said. "I will start to narrow things down during my senior football season because it will be hard to visits schools in the winter because I also play basketball for my high school and we're one of the best team's in the area so we travel a lot.
Besides Nebraska there is a very good chance that Christopher will also take an official visit to Stanford.
"My Mom is very high on Stanford," Christopher said. "She likes the academic opportunities that Stanford affords."
Christopher earned first-team all-league and second-team all-state from his quarterback position his junior season after throwing for 2,609 yards and 32 touchdowns while hitting on 54 percent of his passes. He's also a good running quarterback who rushed for 480 yards and three touchdowns.
Another thing to like about Christopher is he's a great student who carries 4.0 weighted GPA.
