Much like current SMU signal caller Kyle Padron, Westlake quarterback Preston Dewey is waiting in the wings as a high school junior. Padron backed up North Texas quarterback Riley Dodge, before getting on the field as a senior. Dewey is second in command behind Tanner Price, a strong-armed southpaw committed to play at Wake Forest .

"It's hard not be the guy. But, I have take the opportunity to learn from it. I have learned a lot from Tanner," said Dewey on Monday night to "Yeah it does probably hurt my recruiting. I have tried to make the most of it. I'm trying to get my names out there as much as I can and I'm trying to hit all the camps in the summer."

The junior has limited snaps in his career, but it hasn't stopped many schools from being interested. Texas A&M,Mississippi State, Baylor, TCU, and SMU have all showed interest.

"My main schools are Texas A&M, Baylor, SMU, and Mississippi State. Coming into the trip to SMU last weekend, I would say that they were at the bottom of the list, but after Saturday, they are second," said Dewey. "It was my first time and I didn't know what to expect. I had went to TCU and heard it was pretty similar. I wasn't very impressed with TCU's campus when I went, so I was a little nervous, but SMU's campus was beautiful. All the facilities are great. The coaches were really nice, at least the ones I met. I really liked it."

While SMU is currently his second favorite school, Texas A&M is where his early heart is. Preston 's father, Mike Dewey, played his college football at A&M as a deep snapper in the late 70's.

"I'm looking for a program headed in the right direction. Obviously with SMU, they are headed in the right direction. Coach June Jones has them probably going to a bowl game for the first time in 20 some years. I really liked my time there," said Dewey.

Dewey was also able to see first hand Coach June Jones approach at the quarterback position, the best quarterback that gives the team a chance to win will play.

"It was exciting to see them play. I love watching their offense. I love the system," said the Austin native. "Obviously, I like to see the best guy is going to play. He is going to not necessarily name a returning starter the starter if he is not better."
