Many Programs Watching Monroe

FOX Sports NEXT is in the streets this fall to bring you all the coverage from across the Midlands region. Recently, we caught up with Bush quarterback Ronald Monroe from Richmond, Texas after a big win…

When a quarterback has the good running game behind him things flow much better as it pertains to the offense. Last week in a 29-22 win over rival Elkins, Richmond (TX) Bush quarterback Ronald Monroe was able to allow the game to come to him.

This was mainly due to a strong ground game which was able to produce 198 yards rushing.

"Our game plan was to get the running game going and get the tempo up. You know, let our backs do what they do best," Monroe said. "It feels comfortable to pass when it's needed, just be able to make those plays when I'm called upon. It just feels good to come away with the win."

On the night, the 6-foot-4, 195-pound Monroe was 6-of-11 for 69 yards and a 17-yard touchdown pass. So far this season through eight games, Monroe has thrown for 1,042 yards and 12 touchdowns to only two interceptions. 

This level of play has brought him some attention from Division I scouts. He has already visited a Big 12 program earlier this year and he may make another to a Dallas-area program.

"I went to the TCU/Virginia game and I was thinking about going to an SMU game," Monroe said. "I have a good relationship with SMU. I'm getting some mail from them telling me good job on the win and things like that. They want to see me do well in the spring, when they come down to see me."

Aside from these programs, Monroe mentioned that Texas Tech and Baylor are checking him out as well.
