Keeping Busy

Oxford, Miss., quarterback Jack Abraham is in no rush.

As a 2016 prospect, he can take his time with the recruiting process and focus more on improving his game, as he did throughout the spring and all during the summer.

For the last several months, he's kept busy with the camp circuit, including a stop in Mobile, Ala., at QB Country – a year-round training and development center for middle school, high school, college and NFL quarterbacks.

QB Country is led by former Ole Miss quarterback David Morris.

"I learned a couple of things, worked with a couple of guys," Abraham, whose Oxford Chargers defeated Northwest Rankin, 28-21, in their spring game in May, said.

"Worked with David Morris from QB Country. I learned some different things to help me perfect my craft."

All his hard work is a byproduct of a stellar sophomore season, one that saw the 6-foot, 190-pound Abraham lead Oxford to a 15-1 record, with the lone blemish a last-second loss to Picayune in the Class 5A state championship game.

He's determined. And committed. And his efforts haven't gone unnoticed by prospective schools.

"I've been talking a lot with Wake Forest, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Arkansas, Georgia and a bunch of other schools," he said. "My recruitment's picked up, for sure."

Abraham visited Ole Miss, the hometown school, earlier this month for camp and a 7-on-7 tournament. He visited Wake Forest and Arkansas, too.

However, among all the camps, etc., the 7-on-7 tournaments have proven the most beneficial. Along with Ole Miss, Oxford participated in a tournament at Alabama and was recently selected for the Hoover National Select July 17-19.

"It kind of helped us get better as a team and see how we looked going into the season," Abraham said of the 7-on-7s. "We've gotten better, chemistry-wise, with the receivers and stuff. We've gotten to see how we look.

"It's a fun process, just to play with our team and go places and compete with other great teams."

Abraham completed 285 of his 468 pass attempts last season for 3,572 yards and 38 touchdowns. He was named first team All-State. Oxford set a school-record for wins.
