'15 Texas QB talks recruiting

While everyone gets into the 2014 recruiting process some 2015 players are already starting to standout and are picking up offers. Chason Virgil from Mesquite (Texas) West is sitting on three offers before his junior year.

Chason Virgil is a name that people are going to get to know over the next couple of years. The 6-foot-0 and 170-pound quarterback from Mesquite (Texas) West is holding onto a few offers giving him a glimpse of a process that could get to be a little overwhelming.

"I actually have three offers already," Virgil said. "When Nebraska offered I already had Clemson and Missouri. The process has been overwhelming because I am only a sophomore.

"My coach said that they would start to come in for me sometime this year, but we all thought that it would be around the spring. To start picking them up when I did was a blessing."

Virgil says that he can really fit any style of offense based on his abilities. He admits that an offense that is looking for a quarterback that can throw and run would be the best thing for him.

"I would describe my style as versatile. I think that I could really play in any style of offense. I think that any school could have any type of offense and I could do it.

"I have good mobility so I would say that I am a dual-threat quarterback. I am still a throw first and run second, but I can create and scramble with my legs."

Virgil had a huge sophomore season. He had 2,700 total yards of offense and 26 touchdowns. Virgil won the top sophomore in the district award this past season.

"I had 2,300 yards throwing, 21 touchdowns and 400 yards rushing with five more touchdowns. I was the sophomore of the year in the district."

There have been a couple of opportunities for Virgil to get out and make a couple of junior days even though he's a junior to be. For the rest of the spring and the summer there aren't any plans set, but Virgil says he could make some more trips.

"I went to Baylor for their junior day. It was real fun. I got a chance to walk around their campus, meeting their coaches, see their facilities and it was really fun.

"I saw Texas A&M before I saw Baylor. As of right now I don't have any other plans to see any other schools. I might, but I don't have anything planned right now."

The Nebraska staff got a good look at Virgil when they were in recruiting Dimarya Mixon. Virgil says that he likes the Nebraska offense from what he saw from them on television this past year.

"It's a great offense at Nebraska. They play in the Big Ten so the teams in that conference are solid and Nebraska is one of the top teams from the conference. It's a great school. They have a lot of pride.

"I have seen them on T.V. a lot the past year or so. They have a great team. Nebraska is definitely a team that I will be considering. It's not too far away from home or anything."
