Beck's interest in Doss could pay off

Alabama prep quarterback Kendrick Doss is excited about his newest offer - Nebraska.

Florence high school (AL) quarterback Kendrick Doss (6-foot-2, 205-pounds) might not be the No. 1 ranked quarterback in the state of Alabama in the 2014 class, but his offer list is just as impressive as E.J. Moss' (the No.1 QB in the state).

The three-star prospect has seen schools like Auburn, Georgia Tech, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Southern Miss, Tennessee, and South Alabama throw an offer on the table and late last week, Nebraska joined the mix as well.

"I kind of expected it, Coach Beck, the Nebraska offensive coordinator, has been talking with me and really telling me everything about Nebraska. He brings up the tradition and everything," said Doss. "He told me he was going to come down to my school and when he did, they offered.

"It was pretty exciting because he recruits the whole country, not just an area. For all the places in the U.S.A. he could go, he picked me. There are so many quarterbacks across the country, so for him to take a chance on me, it's great. It says a lot when he comes all the way down here to see me."

Doss threw for 1,743 yards in 2012, with 16 touchdowns and five interceptions. He also added 1,200 yards on the ground with 21 touchdowns.

"I like to think that I have a complete game, I can get it done under center or in the shot gun," said Doss. "I can make all the throws and make all the zone reads when I'm running. I think I'm a complete quarterback that can do whatever I'm asked.

"I have been a starting quarterback on the varsity since my freshman year, so I have seen a lot of things throughout the years."

Florence went 7-5 last year, playing in the high classification of Alabama football. The Falcons were 7-3 in 2012.

"I really do have a lot of interest in Nebraska," said Doss. "If Coach took all the time to visit me, than I have interest in them – it definitely excites me."

Doss was timed in the 4.6 range as a sophomore at Mississippi's camp, but the soon to be senior says he's faster almost a year later.
