Beavs offers 4-star Texas QB

ONE OF THE top rated football prospects in the Lone Star State, Dallas quarterback Devante Kincade has become one of Texas' more coveted prospects during the May evaluation period. Kincade has seen his offer list more than double in the past few weeks as schools from the Pac-12, Big 12 and SEC have made their way to Dallas to see him in person. Oregon State was among them.

"It's been going real good," said Kincade of his college recruitment. "We were practicing the other day and I think I saw about 15 D1 coaches out there watching.

"It gets me excited when I see them out there."

The spring guest list has been a virtual who's who of major college programs.

"Nebraska, Texas Tech, North Carolina, Mississippi State and a bunch more have come through," explained Kincade. "Washington and Oregon are coming tomorrow.

"Oregon State offered me today. Before them it was Minnesota and then Mississippi State."

So far Kincade has reeled in offers from Oregon State, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas State, Minnesota, Mississippi State, Notre Dame and SMU.

LSU, Oklahoma and Texas Tech along with many other programs are still evaluating the Dallas standout.

"I think North Carolina, Texas Tech or Nebraska might be my next offer," said Kincade. "I never thought all of this was going to happen to me to be honest...I mean I worked for all of this, but it's still sort of hard to believe.

"Notre Dame was a school that really shocked me. I never thought I would have an offer from Notre Dame. That really surprised me."

The recruiting process allows prospects to get to know a wide assortment of personalities. One coach has already made a very positive impression on the talented Kincade.

"Coach Neal Brown from Texas Tech has helped me," said Kincade. "I asked him about what all I needed to do to improve my game and he told me a lot of things to really help me...They haven't offered me yet, but I feel like Coach Brown wants me to do good. He told me a lot about what I needed to do before I get to the next level."

Skyline likes to spread out the defense and exploit mismatches. The well spoken Kincade reports that he has seen a similar offense to his own on the college level.

"I like the offense at Mississippi State," said Kincade. "They have a quarterback like me that can get outside and make plays outside the pocket....We run a lot of the same type of plays they run at my high school...I like the spread, but we have some pro style offense things that we do too. I believe I can adapt to whatever offensive system I need to."

Kincade declines to tip his hand when it comes to favorites. With new offers rolling in, the talented quarterback is still getting a handle on what his true options will be.

"I would like to know this summer where all I am going to take my official visits to," said Kincade. "I am not sure when I am going to decide.

"I would like to do it after the season, but I don't know...I guess I will know when the time is right."
