A big 2015 Quarterback showed what he could do today at the Will Muschamp football camp on Tuesday. North Cobb (Ga.) prospect Tyler Queen is a 6’2’’ 230 pounder that doesn’t look like a dual threat, but don’t let his stout frame fool you. Queen showed versatility scoring 19 touchdowns on the ground and 21 through the air last season. He also rushed for 918 yards and threw for 2,398 last season leading his team to the 6A semifinals.
“I really like the campus [at Florida], like the coaching staff. It’s one of the great coaching staffs in the country. It’s good to see what they have to say about my play and good to know that they’re going to go after me pretty hard,” Queen said. He spent quite a bit of time with offensive coordinator Brent Pease at Florida’s camp on Tuesday. Pease, Queen, Queen’s father/head coach Shane as well as North Cobb offensive coordinator Tom Clark had a meeting after practice was over on the field.
“It’s been exhausting kind of,” Queen said of the summer camp gauntlet he’s been going through. In the last week alone he’s been at Alabama, Auburn and Clemson. He plans to go to Tennessee and North Carolina this weekend and then return home for the rest of the summer to work with his team.
Florida didn’t offer Queen today, but with offers in hand from seven schools he plans to wait, consider his options and not commit until his senior year. Currently Auburn is his leader and he plans on narrowing his school choices down to five or six by the start of this football season. All in all, Queen views his recruitment favorably and embraces the continuation of the process.
“It’s a blessing, I’m very thankful and it’s a humbling experience because knowing you have the chance to play with some of the big guys in the country is just a really good feeling.”
