It's been quite a ride for Wylie, Texas pro-style quarterback Patrick Witt who moved from Atlanta to Wylie, Texas last spring, started for a new team and new offense this fall, and is now looking to graduate high school in less than a month. However, rumors have been flying about his commitment.
Witt, a 6-foot-4, 215-pound Nebraska commitment, was the center of rumors about wavering away from the Big 12 North school. Scholarship offers from the likes of Texas Tech, Purdue, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, Baylor, and others came before he committed to the Huskers. Between then and now, the school he committed to landed the pledge of a junior college quarterback.
So is Witt still solid?
"Yeah, we talked about it before it happened," Witt said. "I'm solid with Nebraska. I'm honoring my commitment to them. It's as solid as it can be. I didn't know when the juco quarterback was coming and the coaches said it was kind of a shock to them with how soon it happened.
"You're going to face competition anywhere. I wouldn't say I'm worried about it. There is always a guy trying to the win the spot everywhere."
Witt will graduate in less than a month from Wylie and will show up for spring practice at Nebraska.
At Wylie, he threw for 1,846 yards and 17 touchdowns this year. His team just missed the playoffs by one game.
