Dallas QB taking his time

There are a number of good quarterbacks in Texas this year and many of them are good athletes to boot, but Brock Mansion doesn't take a back seat to any of them with his size, strength and speed.

Brock Mansion was the backup quarterback at Plano High his sophomore year, but saw plenty of action in that role. Mansion moved to Episcopal School last season and threw for 19 touchdowns and rushed for little over 1,000 yards out of the spread offense.

So what kind of year did Mansion have last year at his new school?

"I threw for just under 2,000 yards and rushed for over a 1,000," said Mansion. "Most of my running plays are designed. It is kind of like what Texas did last year. We do a lot of zone reads. A few plays a game I scramble and get some yards off of that, but mostly my rushing yardage comes out of the zone read game. I can make all the throws on the field. I have a strong arm and feel that I have good touch."

He went to the Kansas State summer camp the last two years. This summer he will go to camps with his team, but he may not attend any individual camps.

Mansion has been offered by Baylor, Mississippi State and UTEP.

"I am just kind of hanging back letting things happen in recruiting," said Mansion. "I really like Oklahoma, and I have grown up a Texas Tech fan. Both my parents went there. I also like Tennessee. All three of these schools are talking to me and all three want to check me out my senior year and see how I am doing. I hope to make it up to Norman and Tech this summer to see what is going on at both schools."
