The Next Texas Tech QB?

After securing highly rated QB Seth Doege for the class of 2008, Texas Tech is now focused on the class of 2009 and finding the next great QB to bring to Lubbock. One of the top prospects in the state of Texas will be 6'5 QB Cody Green out of Dayton HS, and the Red Raiders are already high on his list. Scout.com caught up with this dual threat QB to get the initial scoop on his recruitment.

Standing taller than most, 6-foot-5, 205 pound quarterback Cody Green will be a hot commodity in the 2009 class.

As such, Scout.com wanted to grab some scoop on the stallion regarding his recruitment, which in the state of Texas starts when you're a sophomore and even in some cases when you're a freshman.

Having said that, Green gives us the low down on his top schools at this point in the process.

"Right now, I'd have to say my top schools are Texas, Oklahoma State, Houston, Baylor, Texas Tech and Oklahoma," said the multi-sport athlete, lettering in football, basketball, baseball and track at Dayton high school.

Cody has plans to attend summer camps at Texas, Oklahoma State, U of H and Peyton Manning's Camp.

Oklahoma State: "They're pretty much the first school to show me attention, the first school to recruit me. And, I really like what they do offensively."

Houston: "It's QB-friendly. And they sure can develop quarterbacks there. Kevin Kolb went in the second round of the NFL Draft, so..."

Texas Tech: "They like to throw the ball. And, I love to throw it. So, they have an offense that's very appealing to quarterbacks."

Oklahoma: "I've pretty much always liked Oklahoma. To play for Oklahoma you have to be a big time. They're always good."
