The Texas 7-on-7 State Championships are often proving grounds for quarterbacks, and after watching Mesquite, Texas, quarterback Kelly Page take his team all the way to the final eight of the tournament it's easy to see why more and more teams have started to get more excited about the 6-foot-3, 202-pound pro-style passer.
"I just got back from College Station for the 7-on-7 state tournament," he said. "We lost in the final eight out of 64 teams so we did pretty well."
"We've got a really, really talented team this year. We're returning like eight or nine starters on defense and like five on offense. We've got a really deep class. The coaches say they are really excited about this class. They said we remind them of the 2001 class that won the state championship. So hopefully if they can see that then we can produce like that."
Page has already been producing on the recruiting front.
"I just got an offer from Tulsa about two weeks ago," he said about his second offer to go along with an earlier offer from Army. "I've been hearing from Utah, Oregon, Tulsa a lot, Rice and some other schools."
"I'm just open to everyone right now. I haven't narrowed it down to anybody. I could make a commitment now. I could make a commitment end of the year. I could make a commitment in the middle of the year. I really have no idea."
Page said the Tulsa offer kind of came out of the blue.
"My head coach gave me a call and said Tulsa was interested in me," Page said. "Then I got a text from coach Gus Malzahn saying to call him and that he had good news for me. So I called him and he verbally offered and then a couple days later I got the offer in the mail."
"I'm headed to Tulsa this coming Friday for an unofficial visit. Then I'm going to Rice on the 21st for an unofficial visit."
