Gus Malzahn has had success with every quarterback he has coached during his career.
AStateNation.com recently caught up with Hobbs Sunday night to get an update on his senior season and see how firm his pledge is to Arkansas State.
"I haven't been able to make an ASU game so far this season so far because of our season," Hobbs said. "I have plans on going to the North Texas game this upcoming weekend."
Hobbs Cedar Hill High School team is currently on a four game winning streak and can clinch a state playoff berth with a win this coming weekend.
While Hobbs hasn't been able to make a game yet, that hasn't stopped the talented signal caller from keeping up with the Red Wolves, by watching games on television and talking weekly to the ASU Coaching Staff.
"I watched their last game against ULL," Hobbs said. "I love how we are improving week in and week out, they really whipped ULL, I couldn't be happier with how the game turned out."
Hobbs can't wait until he arrives to Jonesboro to run the Malzahn offense.
"I talk to Coach (Rhett) Lashlee or Coach Malzahn at least once a week," Hobbs said. "I love their offense, it will be a perfect fit for me. It flowed really well last week, it was a great game to watch on a national audience."
Hobbs was really impressed with Red Wolf senior quarterback Ryan Aplin.
"Ryan did a great job running the offense," Hobbs said. He did a really good job. I loved how the offense played."
Hobbs has put up some impressive numbers himself this fall. He has completed 120 passes on 184 passes for a 65 completion percentage, 17 touchdown passes against only 4 interceptions. He has added another 413 yards rushing and five more scores.
According to Hobbs, several other schools have recently shown interest in him, but he hasn't visited with any of them.
"I'm through with recruiting," Hobbs said. "I'm completely committed to Arkansas State. My coach talks to some of the other schools showing interest, he lets them know I'm not interested in talking to them."
Hobbs is excited about the direction of the Arkansas State Football Program is headed.
"It's going in a really great direction," Hobbs said. "Malzahn is doing a great job implementing his plans, things are definitely on the rise at Arkansas State."
