Introducing 2014 QB John Wolford

John Wolford out of Bishop Kenney High School in Jacksonville, Florida was one of the top freshman signal callers in the country last season and has interest in coming out west...

John Wolford is one of the top signal callers for the class of 2014 and is already getting visits from some of the top programs in the country.

"My recruitment has picked up a lot, especially with our school's spring ball. We've had Alabama come by. West Virginia, UMass, and Stanford as well. I've talked with Alabama and received a ton of letters in the mail from a ton of places."

Despite the early interest from a powerhouse like Alabama and being in Florida's backyard, Wolford doesn't have a favorite and says he is open to going cross country.

"I really am looking to go anywhere. I don't have a favorite school and don't want to throw all of my eggs in one basket. Schools that have a good academic standing are important. I wouldn't mind playing out west."

With offensive coordinator Norm Chow on board at Utah, quarterbacks are showing more and more interest in the Utes, and Wolford is no different.

"I'm really interested in Utah. I know they are moving into the Pac 12. I like the offense they run there. The school seems really nice. Norm Chow is a huge name. I'd be able to learn a lot more with him than most of these under schools."

Despite being only a freshman, Wolford cites his brain as one of his biggest strengths.

"My biggest strengths are my mental capacity. I'm really good at reading defense and analyzing defenses. I have a strong accurate arm and I can run a bit too."

With almost three years until he signs his letter of intent, the 6-1 190 quarterback is in no rush to decide and plans on letting the process play out until the very end.

"I think I'm going to ride it out and wait until signing day in 2012. If a school offers something I really like and I can play as a freshman, I might jump at that offer."

Wolford reports 2010 stats of 20 TDs, 7 INTs, 1800 yards passing, 700 yards rushing, 8 rushing TDs, and a 69% completion percentage to go along with a 3.8 GPA.
