DALLAS - There certainly wasn't a shortage of quarterbacks at the Rivals.com Junior Day. With prospects like Mesquite, Texas signal caller Kelly Page on hand, it's no surprise that some of the state's best made their way to Southern Methodist University.
Page, who has grown considerably since the NIKE Training Camp in College Station, Texas this past summer, is up to 6-foot-3, 199 pounds after measuring in at 6-foot-2 over the summer. He's also closing in on what looks to be the first of many scholarship offers over the spring and summer.
"A bunch of colleges are talking to me, sending text messages, calling my coach, and all of that," Page said. "Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, and a lot of others have been really active lately.
"No one has said anything specifically about an offer yet, but it seems like everybody is really interested."
Page denies having a favorite school yet. He's also received mail in the past from the likes of Kansas State, Oklahoma, and Nebraska.
This year Page looks to really shine as a senior. Not only will he have another year of experience under his belt, but also will have top receiving targets like Adrian Richards and David Marshall to throw to.
"We're going to have a really good year I think," Page said. "You just look at the returning starters we have coming back and it's pretty exciting."
The Junior Day event at SMU was also beneficial for Page. He said it really put things in perspective listening to the different speakers when it came to getting prepared for the next level.
"They talked about college life," Page said. "I liked the speakers, they were really neat. He just broke down that when you take all the expenses of paying for a college education, it's like they're basically investing thousands of dollars in you. So obviously you need to be prepared to work hard while you're there."
