Nevada is First Offer for Texas 8th Grade Quarterback Preston Stone

Preston Stone just reported that he has picked up his first offer from Nevada. The Class of 2021 and current eighth grade quarterback is the younger brother of Class of 2017 Virginia signee Lindell Stone.

The recruiting timeline for offers has indeed moved up for some prospects, most especially quarterbacks. 

On Wednesday, that was evident when Nevada stepped up to the plate to be the first school to extend an offer to eighth grade Highland Park (Texas) quarterback Preston Stone, a 6-foot-2, 175-pounder.

"It’s incredibly exciting to get an offer from the University of Nevada," Stone said of the day's big news. "Coach (Jay) Norvell has put together a great offensive staff in Matt Mumme, David White and Timmy Chang. They run a high powered Air Raid offense that’s going to score a lot of points."

"It’s a great destination for any dual quarterback coming out of high school. My original relationship was with Coach White, but I’ve been talking to offensive coordinator and QB Coach Mumme as well."

Stone isn't letting the early attention get to his head, he is just trying to stay focused and get ready for playing high school ball and winning a spot on the varsity squad. 

"I haven’t played a down of varsity football yet and I’m not focused on recruiting," Stone said. "I’m focused on getting better and becoming a successful varsity quarterback that can help a team win championships.

"My older brother (Lindell Stone) is a 2017 University of Virginia QB commit who received several early offers. His consistent advice to me has been to only focus on my teammates and getting better every day. The rest will take care of itself. He won four state championships and was Virginia Offensive Player of the Year twice. He’s been a great mentor and role model for me."
