QB Spring Risers in Texas

FOX Sports NEXT takes a look at a few players in the state of Texas who have started to see some movement in the recruiting process. In fact, we estimate that this spring even more interest, and offers, will come their way. Check out the players we think will keep college coaches coming to their school in heavy rotation. Today we look at the quarterbacks.

QB Aaron Sharp (6-3, 180) – Humble (TX) Summer Creek
Still only holding that lone offer from UTEP, Sharp has been getting a ton of looks as of late. In late January, he told FOX Sports NEXT that Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Boise State, Georgia, Northwestern, Mississippi State were some of the schools looking at him. Here recently, he added that UCLA has reached out as well. This spring, look for all of the interest to convert into offers.

QB Zach Cripps (6-2, 217) – League City (TX) Clear Springs
It took him a little while to come into his own, but once Cripps got it going it was, at times, eye opening. In fact, he ended up with around 2800 yards and 23 touchdowns and ran for another 538 yards with 12 touchdowns. 

With that, look for plenty of coaches to come by and check in on him this spring. Word is that Northwestern would offer once the coaching staff made it to the Lone Star. He has already visited UTSA and most recently TCU. Both have been showing lots of interest, along with Baylor, according to his father.

QB Grayson Muehlstein (6-4, 200) – Decatur (TX) HS
Physically, Muehlstein is one of the best looking athletes. But don't let the eyeball test fool you, he can ball. He passed for 1,444 yards and 17 touchdowns while running for another 721 yards and six scores. Rutgers, Tennessee, SMU, Oregon State and Baylor have all made contact as of late, but no offer has yet been extended. 

So far he has made a few junior days, but it's likely that spring ball will be good for him. Watch for more than a few offers to be extended at that time.

QB Trey Roberts (6-1, 190) – Houston (TX) Eisenhower 
In late January, Roberts got his first offer in from SMU. But after a solid junior season (1,000 yards of offense with eight touchdowns).and a skill set that many coaches are looking for at the college level, he should get more than a few looks this spring. TCU invited him out for a junior day, and Stanford and Texas A&M have made some contact throughout the process.
