Kentucky QB Favors Wolfpack, Heels

Elizabethtown (KY) Quarterback Chris Todd's recruitment has been going very well,and he recently returned from a tour of the Tar Heel state.

"It's going pretty good," Chris Todd told Pack Pride last night. "We've tried to narrow things down some lately. Recently I stopped by NC State, North Carolina, and Wake Forest. I like those schools a lot, especially NC State and North Carolina."

A 2nd Team AP All-State selection as a junior, Todd threw for 4,583 yards and 51 touchdowns on the season while completing 64% of his passes to lead his team to the Kentucky Class 2A Championship game.

At 6-foot-3 180 pounds, he is a classic drop-back passer and claims offers from NC State, North Carolina, Wake Forest, and Cincinnati. Todd pointed out that both NC State and North Carolina just received quarterback commitments so he's not sure how it will affect his recruitment.

"They've called my coaches and informed him of the commitments they received," he said. "I'm going to call both of them tomorrow and try to find out the details though. The last time I talked with NC State and North Carolina they did say they wanted to take more than one quarterback."

NC State recently entered the picture after Todd camped in Raleigh during an unofficial visit tour of the triangle.

"It was a good visit to NC State," he said. "I threw pretty good down there at camp, and I was the only quarterback there so I got a lot of attention. They told me after camp they were probably going to offer, and they called my coach a few days later to tell him I have an offer."

"I'm not real positive on their situation now that somebody has committed, but it would be a real good situation for me," he added. "They have a great offense, and it's a good school."

However, North Carolina is also a major player in Todd's recruitment, as they have recruited him for a very long time and could offer early playing time with the graduation of Darian Durant.

"North Carolina has shown a lot of interest in me, and I like the coaches there," he said. "It's a nice school and it seems to be a good situation for a quarterback to come in and play early."

Todd hopes to make a decision very soon, but that's only if the perfect situation is open for him to do so.

"I'd like to make a decision soon if that's possible," he said. "If it doesn't work out and all these situations are closed up then I'll wait and see what happens later in the season."
