On the Move: QB's in Texas

Scout.com recaps seven quarterbacks who have moved within, into, or out of the Lone Star State during the offseason.

Scout has compiled a list of quarterbacks who have moved within the state of Texas, into the state, or out of the state during the past several months.

So far, we've found seven quarterbacks who have done so, five of which have moved within the state. Here's the breakdown:


Blake Lynch, 2015 ATH, committed to Baylor -- Lynch played quarterback each of the past two seasons for small-school Troup in East Texas. The 6-foot-3, 195-pounder's family moved to Gilmer during the offseason. Lynch, a four-star recruit, will play receiver and safety for Gilmer, a perennial power in its classification. Lynch will likely play one of those positions once he arrives at Baylor. In addition to Lynch, Gilmer also boasts four-star cornerback Kris Boyd, 2016 rising prospect Demarco Boyd, and another player on this list who moved to GHS in the offseason ...


McLane Carter, 2015 QB -- Carter is another move-in for Gilmer, which is where Carter is originally from. He's the younger brother of former Gilmer standout G.J. Kinne. Carter is a talented southpaw who's under the radar right now and looking for his first FBS offer. He put up big numbers -- 2,476 yards, 24 touchdowns, 10 interceptions -- as a junior at Salado, a small-school program in Central Texas.


Kevin Dillman, 2015 QB, committed to Nebraska -- Dillman moved from his high school in California to Denton Guyer, a two-time defending Class 4A Division I state champion in the Lone Star State. Dillman, who committed in the spring to the Huskers, will have a fight on his hands to land the starting job at Guyer, which graduated 2014 Texas signee Jerrod Heard. Dillman's chief competition is another move-in to Guyer ...


Shawn Robinson, 2017 QB -- meet Dillman's competition, a 6-foot-2, 191-pound sophomore who has already emerged as one of the state's top prospects in his classification. Robinson, who spent his freshman season at nearby Saginaw Chisholm Trail, has offers from Nebraska and Texas and will continue to reel in offers for the next couple of years. His mother was hired during the spring as Guyer's new girls basketball coach, while his father was hired as an assistant football coach. Robinson kicks off the season Aug. 29 at North Texas' Apogee Stadium in a matchup against another two-time defending champion, Allen, which features Texas A&M-bound four-star quarterback Kyler Murray and several other big-time prospects.


David Moore, 2016 QB -- Moore is yet another quarterback who spent the spring at Denton Guyer after moving there from nearby Prosper, which is just north of Dallas. But Moore, who got his first offer last week during an unofficial visit to UAB, reported in July that he was moving back to Prosper. Then Scout confirmed this past weekend that for family reasons Moore has moved out of state to Milton High School in Alpharetta, Ga. With one FBS offer in hand some early interest from two SEC West programs, Moore will be one to watch in the Peach State.


Dillon Sterling-Cole, 2016 QB -- Sterling-Cole is going from one perennial power to another: West Orange-Stark, a longtime 3A school near Beaumont and now member of the new 4A, to Spring Westfield, which is an always-strong 5A/now 6A program near Houston. Sterling-Cole is a dual-threat quarterback who has yet to receive an FBS offer, but has gotten interest from several programs.


Michael Ross, 2016 QB -- the undersized, but athletic Ross had an impressive season for small-school Harmony, which is in East Texas near Gilmer, before transferring in the spring to Tyler Lee. But Ross moved again during the summer to Longview, one of the East Texas' most consistently strong programs in any classification. Ross doesn't have any offers yet and his size will hurt him, but he's got great feet, a quick release and delivery, and a natural feel for the game that made him a serious playmaker at the small-school level. He will have 2015 quarterback Dezmond Chumley starting ahead of him at Longview this fall, but being at a big, established program should help him develop further.
