Jeremy Sanders did it all this past year for Marlin. Running and throwing in the spread offense allowed his to accumulate numerous awards and honors. Originally a Missouri commit, once Baylor came calling, he knew Baylor was where he needed to be. Here is what Jeremy Sanders, otherwise known as "J-Mo" had to say during our interview:
Q: When do you plan on enrolling at Baylor?
A: Probably next month some time.
Q: Is the summer workout harder or easier than expected?
A: It's what I thought it would be.
Q:Do you know what playing weight the coaching staff wants you to come in at?
A: They didn't gine me a weight, but I am going to try and come in at 205.
Q: Is quarterback the position you will be playing, or is there another position such as wide receiver that you might be playing?
A: Yeah, it will be quarterback. It will be quarterback.
Q:Which coach recruited you out of Marlin?
Q:What was it about Coach McGriff that you liked?
A:He was just real. He told me what really was going to be happening. How we would be playing and all that stuff.
Q:Have you developed a relationship with any of the other incoming signees?
A:No. I haven't met none of them. Well, actually, I have met one. The linebacker from Lancaster. (Chris Mitchell)
Q:Have you slected a major, or know what you want to study?
A: No, sir. Not yet.
Q:You have compared yourself to Vince Young in the past...
A:I think I will be better than Vince Young.
Q:Vince Young went 3rd overall in the NFL draft, do you think he was the best quarterback available in the draft?
A:I think he was the best type of quarterback for his style of play.
Q:Besides Vince Young, if you had to compare yourself to a quarterback in the NFL, would you compare yourself to?
A:I would say someone like Michael Vick but with a better arm though.
Q:How do you feel about the offense and some of the guys on the offensive side of the ball coming in with you this year?
A:Yeah, the offense is just like the one we run. I like the shotgun and seeing the whole field, instead of the drop back. I think I can read defenses better in the shotgun.
Q:Are you planning on redshirting?
A:Well, when I first get there, I plan on starting. If not, at least compete for the starting job. I will make a big difference
