Monroe adding interest

Richmond (TX) Bush quarterback Ronald Monroe is drawing interest from a number of schools.

Richmond (TX) Bush 2014 quarterback Ronald Monroe is receiving his fair share of interest early in the process and for good reason. For starters, the 6-foot-3, 180-pounder led Bush to their best record in school history with a 10-2 record while also advancing to the second round of the playoffs.

"As a team it went pretty great, we had the best record in school history and made our second playoff appearance of all-time and we made it to the second round but came up short against LaPorte," Monroe said.

Monroe threw for 1,932 yards and 22 touchdowns in 2012 while adding another 300 yards and six more scores on the ground. It was an improvement from his sophomore season according to the signal caller.

"I think I improved, I threw and ran for more yards this year," Monroe said of his season. "My accuracy and footwork were better this year and I felt like more of a leader and I connected more with my receivers."

Currently ranked as the nation's No. 20 quarterback prospect by Fox Sports NEXT, Monroe is receiving plenty of college interest. He picked up his first offer in early December from Houston. Others have started to extend him invites to their respective junior days.

"I'm getting interest from TCU, Texas Tech, Baylor, Northwestern and SMU," he said. "I have junior day invites to Arizona, Minnesota and U of H (Houston). I want to go to TCU's, Baylor, LSU or Texas Tech."

Monroe says one team is showing more interest than the others at the moment.

"LSU has been sending me a lot of letters," he said.

With his recruitment heating up, Monroe maintains that he doesn't have a leader at the moment but hopes to have some schools in mind once he makes more visits.

"It's pretty even right now, once I go to the junior days at the schools I'll figure out which one's I like the most and which ones I hope to get an offer from."
