FORT WORTH, Texas - Aside from a knee brace, one wouldn't have known that Mesquite, Texas quarterback Kelly Page was finishing his recovery process from an ACL injury.
That's because at Friday's Elite 11 workout and on Saturday, the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder, showed people that he was back to his old self. Page showed that he was one of the bigger quarterbacks to watch both in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and in the state of Texas going into the summer.
Several schools have taken notice and offers may just be a few weeks away.
"Minnesota has talked about an offer now, Arkansas has talked about it," Page said. "They all just want to see about my knee going into the summer and fall. That's what they're waiting on.
"But, all of them are really solid on how I've been performing and doing at competitions like this."
Page says that in a spread out offense in high school, the Elite 11 workout offered him experience with footwork and taking drops.
"They showed me a lot about footwork," Page said. "That's not something we really do a lot of in high school, so they really helped me with that. They also really helped me with my accuracy.
"This was just great competition from around the country. I don't know how to explain it, it was just a great day."
