After a strong junior season, San Antonio Lee dual-threat quarterback prospect Jerome Tiller was set on playing quarterback in college.
Since then, he's added several scholarship offers from schools looking at him at that position. Tiller has even turned down a few schools that said they would only be recruiting him as an athlete or receiver. Now, the offers are starting to add up and the 6-foot-3, 184-pound Tiller is still keeping his options open.
"I had Minnesota, Stanford, Purdue, and Texas A&M, but now Air Force, Iowa State, and Illinois have offered too," Tiller said. "The two new offers from Iowa State and Illinois, they kind of came out of nowhere. I hadn't talked to them a whole lot or anything."
Tiller says that the quarterback position, where all of the offered schools are recruiting him, is exactly where he wants to be at the next level.
"I like the position and I like to make plays," Tiller said. "I love having the ball in my hands every down of the game. The power rests on my shoulders."
As for when he'll wrap up his recruiting process with a commitment, Tiller says he'd like to have that done by early fall. He says he'll most likely take some visits between now and then, but is unsure of where those will be.
A hefty camp schedule is also probably not on the schedule either.
"I don't want to work my arm out too much because we're really ready for a big season," Tiller said. "I want to stay as fresh as possible over the summer. We just finished up spring ball and I've been lifting a lot of weights and then we just finished testing."
