"I went to Ole Miss' camp and really enjoyed it. Coach Werner is from around here, so I know a lot about him. He was actually recruiting me when he was at Miami. I am real impressed with his system. We talk all of the time. I feel really comfortable around him. I also liked Ole Miss' campus. It was great," stated Joe Weatherford.
The Rebels only offer for the
QB position is Stephen Garcia, but Weatherford could be in line for an offer.
plan on going back there for an official visit in the Fall. We have not set a
date, but we are talking about it."
Where else has Joe camped at
"I have been to Alabama, Ole Miss, Central Florida, SMU,
and Nike. I am actually at the SMU camp right now. SMU offered me, and I have
a lot of family who live in the Dallas area, so I wanted to check them out. It
has been a nice time."
How did his Alabama experience go?
really liked Alabama. They had a lot of good QB's there. Robert Marve got offered
before I did, and he committed. I liked Ole Miss a little bit better, but I was
trying to get that offer from Alabama. Ole Miss was just so nice. I plan on going
back. They have not offered me yet, but hopefully they will."
colleges are still in the running for Joe's signature?
Louisville, and Ole Miss are probably my Top 3."
What stands out about
"I just like the overall situation. Their QB coach
is a real nice guy. I just like what is going on over there, and they were the
first school to offer me."
"I have not
seen them, but I was planning on going to their camp. I did not make it, but I
will probably take an official visit there. I am just real interested in them,
and they have given me a scholarship offer, so they are real interested in me."
Joe received any additional offers this summer?
"Duke offered me not
too long ago, so did UConn."
Joe's older brother, Drew Weatherford,
is currently the starting QB for FSU.
"Drew has given me a lot of
perspective on what it takes to succeed on that level. He has always been there
to give me advise. He has definitely helped my mental game out a lot."
else does Joe do well on the field?
"I think my footwork is my number
one accomplishment. I have great footwork, and that is what I have concentrated
on my whole career."
Joe passed for 1975 yards and 15 touchdowns as
a junior, as he completed over 60 percent of his passes.
