2014 Recruiting Spotlight: Quarterbacks

It's a new year and time to start looking at SMU prospects in the Class of 2014. Come inside for an introduction to the Mustangs' top QB targets!

Jordan Severt (6-4 220), Austin Westlake (TX)

Briefly: Severt is the only 2014 quarterback SMU has offered so far. He looks like the perfect field general for the Run N' Shoot and has a powerful arm. His film is quite impressive and he comes from a top Texas program, which reached the 5A D2 state quarterfinals. This season, he passed for over 3,000 yards and 30 touchdowns.

John Wolford (6-1 210) Bishop Kenny (FL)

Briefly: It's surprising Wolford doesn't have an offer yet. He is expected to be one of the top quarterbacks in Florida and had a sensational year, passing for 3,003 yards and 46 touchdowns. He has family in Dallas and really likes SMU. Wolford has been in contact with Dan Morrison and GA Timmy Chang.


Blake Bogenschutz (6-0 185), Carthage (TX)

Briefly: Bogenschutz has already seen SMU a couple of times and absolutely loves it. He has been in constant communication with the staff but has yet to pick up an offer. He had a great junior season and was named District 20-3A MVP after passing for 2,900 yards and 38 touchdowns with just nine interceptions.


Patrick Mahomes (6-3 195), Whitehouse (TX)

Briefly: The son of former MLB pitcher Pat Mahomes, Patrick wants to make a name for himself and is already doing just that. This season, he passed for 3,839 yards and 46 touchdowns with only nine interceptions. Bert Hill recently visited Mahomes at school and is somewhat interested but hopes to play both football and baseball at the next level, which SMU can't offer.

Ronald Monroe (6-3 180), FB Bush (TX)

Briefly: A three-star prospect, Monroe is a dynamite athlete from the Houston area and holds an offer from UH. He was supposed to visit SMU earlier this season with his brother and wide receiver Donald Monroe but had to cancel. He does, however, maintain interest in the Ponies.


A.J. Long (6-0 175), Frenship Christian (TN)

Briefly: Long holds offers from Arizona, Syracuse and UCLA. But he has been spotted on Twitter sporting SMU gear. If SMU is going to offer, they better do so soon because Long is bound to pick up more BCS offers this spring. The film below is from his sophomore season at St. Pius X (PA), where he passed for 3,700 yards and 46 touchdowns.


David Blough (6-2 190), Carrollton Creekview (TX)

Briefly: Blough attended an SMU camp last summer and is flying under the radar so far. He didn't put up gaudy statistics, passing for 1,777 yards and 17 touchdowns but was his district's Offensive Newcomer of the Year in 2011.


Trenton Jones (6-0 200), Killeen Ellison (TX)

Briefly: According to Jones, he has been trying to get a hold of Bert Hill and Dan Morrison with no success. If he ever does get a hold of them, Jones would like to let them know that he is very interested in SMU.

Brad Kaaya (6-4 210), Chaminade (CA)

Briefly: Kaaya assumed the starting role a few weeks into his junior season after transferring from Crespi, which produces quite a few FBS prospects. Kaaya passed for 1,875 yards and 12 touchdowns with only two interceptions while leading his team to a 12-2 record. He is expected to be a highly touted prospect but currently holds no offers.


Jordan Jackson (6-3 185), La Porte (TX)

Briefly: A very good Texas quarterback, Jackson helped La Porte capture a 21-5A championship and established himself as one of the top signal callers in the Houston-area, earning all-district honorable mention honors.


Regan Edwards (5-11 160) Glenbrook School (LA)

Briefly: Edwards is turning heads in Louisiana with his prolific numbers. He isn't the typical height and weight but his numbers are undeniable. Edwards passed for 3,041 yards and 44 touchdowns and was named his district's offensive MVP.


JaJuan Lawson (6-1 190), Casa Grande (CA)

Briefly: Lawson already holds offers from Arizona and UNLV and has also visited UCLA and USC. He is a very dangerous dual-threat quarterback and passed for 2,234 yards and 22 touchdowns and rushed for 456 yards and nine scores.


Tyron Washington (6-1 180), Houston Reagan (TX)

Briefly: Washington is a very raw prospect and struggled at times this season. He passed for 1,916 yards and 12 touchdowns with 11 interceptions. But he does have potential and could be a sleeper.
