Florida QB Camps at NC State

Tallahassee (FL) North Florida Christian quarterback Matt Dobson talks about his camp experience at NC State.

Tallahassee (FL) North Florida Christian quarterback Matt Dobson has three early offers and he's looking to add more.

Dobson camped with NC State over the weekend because the Pack has been showing some interest and he wanted to show the coaching staff what he's able to do.

While he didn't leave Raleigh with an offer he feels good about his performance and the coaches have told him that he's definitely on their radar as a potential offer candidate down the road.

"It was good. I liked it up there," Dobson said. "I liked the campus and everything. I felt like I threw the ball well. There were a lot of good quarterbacks at the camp so there was some good competition.

"We didn't do a lot of different things. We worked on some pretty basic stuff and then did some one-on-ones but the weather kind of got in there."

NC State quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator Dana Bible explained what the coaching staff's plan is from now until the end of the summer.

"They're going to wait until all the camps are over this summer before they make any decisions on who they're going to offer," he explained. "They're going to get back to me once they've made a decision. I'm not sure what they're going to do."

Dobson also took a recent trip to Tennessee to see what the Vols have to offer. He said he was thoroughly impressed with the facilities in Knoxville and he spent some productive time with UT's quarterbacks coach, who gave him some pointers and feedback.

Georgia Tech, FIU and Western Kentucky are the three FBS offers Dobson has received and he says Georgia Tech, the lone BCS school, is leading among those three schools.

Of course, Georgia Tech runs an option attack, which is very different than most of the offenses utilized by the other schools recruiting him and in college football in general. Last fall Dobson passed for about 1,800 yards and 20 touchdowns, but he also rushed for 600 yards so he can beat you with his legs as well.

Is he okay with the idea of being an option quarterback?

"I'm flexible," he said. "The style of offense isn't going to be a deciding factor of where I go to school. I just want to go somewhere I can feel comfortable and play college football."

He did note, however, that he doesn't plan on making a decision right away because he wants to see what other schools plan on offering him over the summer or perhaps even beyond.

"When I make my decision just kind of depends on when I feel completely comfortable and I'm ready. In a perfect world I'd like to make a decision by the end of the summer but if I'm not 100-percent ready then I'll wait until I'm completely sure so I don't rush into anything."
