When Nick Florence, a dual-threat quarterback out of South Garland High School, committed to the Baylor Bears, he said he was done in the recruitment process.
"I am committed to Baylor. I am for sure going there. It is a done deal."
Florence who threw for just under 3,000 yards last year as a junior for 25 touchdowns, also showed his mobility rushing for over 400 yards and scoring 11 times on the ground. Florence believes his mobility allows him to be such a threat behind center.
"I am a great thrower, I can scramble, and I can throw it left or throw it right. But I make things happen with my feet."
When asked who he could compare himself to, Florence was quick to respond.
"My coach compares me to Drew Brees and Drew Tate. Drew Brees is obviously doing awesome right now, and Drew Tate did some great things at Iowa. Both those guys knew how to win, and are great quarterbacks."
So what was it about Baylor that made the talented quarterback make his commitment so early?
"I just felt very welcomed there. It is where I have wanted to go for the past year or so, my parents went to Baylor. I know people at Baylor, and it just felt like the right place for me."
Florence also added that the coaches really made him feel comfortable.
"Coach Hays is really down to earth, and the whole staff is just down to earth. Coach Jennings who is recruiting my area is a nice guy and great to be around. Coach Morriss is a great guy, friendly, and just real down to earth."
So with his recruitment out of the way, Nick Florence eyes the prize for next year. However, he does have some personal goals he wants to achieve.
"My senior year I want to throw for over 3,000 yards and 30 touchdowns. I also want to rush for over 1,000 yards. I want to be a team player, and help my team win."
