Juggling junior days has been one of the main focuses for Mesquite, Texas quarterback Kelly Page. The 2008 prospect has yet to pick up his first scholarship offer, but his upcoming visits could change all that.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder says he has received junior day invitations from Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Vanderbilt, Oklahoma, SMU, Texas Tech, and Texas A&M. Page is trying to make as many as possible and is also almost finished with his recovery process from an ACL injury.
"I've gotten to SMU's junior day and I'm going to Oklahoma State's which is coming up soon," Page said. "I may attend Nebraska's, Vanderbilt's, and I was supposed to go to Oklahoma this past weekend, but I had a banquet. Texas Tech invited me to theirs and so did Texas A&M."
Page says he's also hearing from Arkansas and they're on school that's sticking out early to him.
"Oklahoma State, I like them right now and Arkansas sounds really interested from what my coach says," Page said. "Vanderbilt, they're also really interested in me. Of course, the big Texas schools have sent stuff to me too."
Page tore his ACL after five games in the season, but says that he's almost fully recovered. He's back to sprinting and should be able to cleared for all activity in the next few weeks.
The talented quarterback also will have some big time receivers returning for his senior year. Adrian Richards is a big target at 6-foot-3 and former Lancaster tight end David Marshall recently transferred in.
"Adrian, you can't teach his size," Page said. "He's going to be a special player this year – even more than last year."
Page was named the sophomore newcomer of the year in 2005. He plans to also attend the Rivals.com Junior Day this Saturday at SMU.
