One of the top quarterback prospects from the Sunshine State next season is Alton Voss from New Port Richey (Fla.) Gulf High School. Voss, 6-3 and 215 pounds, runs in the 4.6 range. Last season as a junior he passed for over 1,300 yards and 13 touchdowns and rushed for over 1,100 yards and 13 scores. Voss, who will be a three-year starter, can beat you with his arms and legs.
"I am smart and dependable," said Voss. "I am pretty much able to do anything, whatever the coach wants and whatever my team needs. I am tough, play with heart and I am a leader out there.
"I do need to work on the little things. Mainly, I just try and pick everyone up when they are down and I try to lead by example and be the first in line for every drill."
In regards to recruiting, Voss has one scholarship offer, from South Florida, and a slew of other schools like LSU, Auburn, Alabama, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Florida, Miami, Louisville, and Florida State are showing a ton of interest. For now, he remains wide open.
"USF has offered and they are close to home. They are also a program on the upswing and they have improved each season.
"Alabama has everything. That's where Bear Bryant was. They are college football and Alabama is football country.
"Same thing with Auburn. They are all about football.
"N.C. State is not too far from home and that's a place where I think I can play relatively early.
"LSU is an elite program. Look at what they did in their Bowl game against a team like Miami. That showed me a lot.
"Louisville is a school I camped at last summer and I did very well there.
"I am originally from Michigan and I like the Wolverines. They are all about tradition. That stadium is awesome and I would love that pressure.
"Of all the teams, Mississippi State is probably showing me the most love and they are recruiting me the hardest. Their coaches are great and very friendly. They have certainly showed me a lot of love.
"I am pretty open right now but those are the teams that stand out. It will basically come down to where I feel my game fits in to what school, playing time and coaching stability."
