"I liked Texas, it was a good camp and I loved Alabama. The coaches over there really liked me and I really liked them and I loved the campus and atmosphere over there at Alabama," Sawyer said. "It was a good time and I also went to Oklahoma State a couple of weeks ago and they really liked me and I loved the camp over there too.
"I talked to Coach Saban at their camp for about an hour and he told me I need to call them so I need to get in contact with them. He said he's kind of an old school guy so he's going to wait and see me play but they're going to offer me. Oklahoma State pretty much said the same thing and that I'm one of their top recruits at quarterback. I'm what they're looking for; I just have to perform and be a leader and it will come. I'm not worried about it all just yet, if they offer me that's awesome but I'm not worried about it. But we'll see."
Despite nearly two years away from signing day, Sawyer is receiving plenty of interest from schools across the country. Alabama, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and TCU were among just the few schools that stopped by his previous school, Aledo, this spring. Although he says it's definitely exciting to receive such interest, he's remained humble and just wants to focus on playing the game he loves.
"It's very exciting but you have to stay humble though, you play the game because you love it, you don't play it for the scouts," he said. "My goal is to go D-1 but my goal is also to have fun and perform and do my best."
Sawyer will attend TCU's camp on July 13th and may attend another Big 12 school camp and call it quits on the camp circuit for the summer.
"I'm thinking about going to Baylor, I've heard a couple of good things about them and they asked me to come to their camp a few weeks ago but I couldn't go because I was in Alabama," Sawyer said. "I'd like to go over there and visit Baylor."
TCU has been on Sawyer's radar for quite a while. He's attended several Horned Frog games in the past and has family connections to the school with his mother and two brothers attending the university. Sawyer says an offer from TCU would definitely have him consider some things.
"It would make me reconsider a lot of things, if TCU offered that would be awesome," Sawyer said of the Frogs. "They're definitely in my top three and if they offered me I'd have to talk with my family and see what happens. But, that would be awesome. We'll see."
While it's still early in the process, Sawyer says three teams are currently standing out but he's also quick to admit that could always change.
"TCU, Alabama and Oklahoma State are my top three right now, that could always change but as of right now those are my top three," Sawyer said. "I'd like to play in the Big 12 but if I were to go anywhere far I'd probably go no further than Alabama. I'd like to stay around here but I'll go wherever it takes us."
Sawyer completed 206-of-346 passes for 2,810 yards and 27 touchdowns in 2011 at Arlington Grace Prep.
