Lloyd Breaking Out

Provo (Utah) Timpview quarterback Jake Lloyd is off to a huge start in his senior season…

In just five games, Provo (Utah) Timpview quarterback Jake Lloyd has already thrown for what many quarterbacks hope for in a whole season. He has completed 81 of 137 attempts for 1,386 yards and 17 touchdowns. Averaging 277.2 yards per game while throwing just one interception.

"I think the team is doing great, I was worried about our defense from 7on7's this summer, but I don't think I realized how good our D-line would be," said Lloyd. "On offense we have executed really well."

"I think I have played well, I missed some stuff that I should have picked up on," said Lloyd. "My drops and throws have been good and I am making plays with my legs."

Lloyd's full focus is on his season and he has moved recruiting to the back burner for the time being.

"Coming into the season I wanted to keep it all in back of my mind, I have realized that our offense is based around the quarterback's knowledge and reads," said Lloyd. "Even with a bad day I have good stats, I just have to focus on the team and making it better."

While he isn't focused on recruiting, that doesn't mean schools have stopped calling the 6'2" 180lbs prospect.

"I have been hearing from some Ivy league schools. Yale. Harvard and Dartmouth are talking to me," said Lloyd. "I am also hearing from Utah, Utah State, Indiana, Southern Utah and Colorado State."

"I can't take any visits until after the season and my ACT score will determine some of my visits," said Lloyd. "I would love to get anywhere I can, but it depends on who is interested."

Lloyd has turned a breakout spring, where he earned MVP honors at the NLA 7on7 in Las Vegas, into confidence for his senior year.

"Yeah, confidence was big with camps and things like that," said Lloyd. "I always thought I could compete and realized I can sling it and throw it as well as other guys. The camps that I have been to and seen have raised my confidence and a confident quarterback is a threat."
