Oklahoma City (Okla.) Bishop McGuinness quarterback Ryan Randolph does not get the opportunity to throw 30 times a game in his team's offense, but his performance this fall is still drawing the attention of college football programs.
The 6-3, 190-pound Randolph is also a shooting guard on Bishop McGuinness' basketball team too, and his college future will be defined by his performances on the gridiron and hardcourt during his senior year.
"I'm just going to see what opportunities present themselves this year," Randolph said. "Right now I am open to anything. Football and basketball both if possible, but that's probably unlikely."
On the football field this fall, Randolph has rallied his team to three straight wins after starting 0-2 on the season. So far this fall he has accounted for 500 passing yards with eight touchdown passes and four touchdowns he's run in himself.
"I think I am probably a dual-threat; that's what I want to try and be," Randolph said. "I'm not exactly the type of quarterback he is, but I like the way (Oklahoma's) Sam Bradford plays."
Randolph does not currently does not hold any scholarships for either sport, but he is starting to gain attention for his play this fall.
"TCU (communicates) a decent amount. OSU is sending me letters and I talk with the Harvard football coaches. Then for basketball I get stuff too. I haven't made any decision right now about who I am most interested in."
Of the schools contacting him, Randolph is seeing the greatest amount of interest from TCU which has piqued his interest.
"They want to see me more before they (offer)," Randolph said. "They invited me to their home game and I'm supposed to go here in like two weeks. I like TCU a lot. I think they play a really fun style of football."
On the basketball front, Randolph receives communication from Army, Cornell and Davidson. This summer he took part in basketball camps at UNLV and Harvard. He has opportunities at academically prestigious schools because of his 4.0 GPA and 25 ACT.
