San Antonio junior QB on Aggies radar

San Antonio (Texas) Lee junior quarterback Jerome Tiller is certainly one several colleges' radars with the 2008 class just starting up.
Tiller, the 6-foot-3, 195-pounder, got his name on the map after throwing for 1,323 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior. He also rushed for 450 yards and 12 more scores. Tiller recently attended the Texas A&M junior day and received some big news.
"I went to A&M and they verbally offered me a scholarship," Tiller said. "I'm going to wait though and check out all of my options. This is going to be taken one step at a time."
Tiller says that he also plans on taking in the Oklahoma State junior day on Feb. 17. Regardless of his open feelings towards all the schools, the Aggies certainly left a good impression on him.
"I liked it a lot at A&M," Tiller said. "I wouldn't mind going there at all. I liked the coaches, the facilities, the campus, the living style, the type of offense they run, and everything. Their schemes are real similar to what we run here at Lee. Plus the coaching staff is real cool."
Tiller says that he's a dual-threat quarterback, but as he develops, he's definitely a passer more than a runner.
"If I can run, I'll do it," Tiller said. "I like to run, but I prefer to make a play by throwing the football."
