Texas QB talks Vanderbilt visit

Despite missing his entire junior season with injury, Quintin Dormady of Boerne (Texas) High School recently received his second offer. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound quarterback did have a big sophomore campaign in 2012 playing for his father, Mike, in the San Antonio area. Dormady spoke with VandyMania.com about his most recent offer from the Commodores.

"Coach Dorrell came by to watch me throw a week ago," Dormady said. "I guess he liked what he saw and thought I'd be a good fit. When I called him that night, he gave me the offer. Most of the quarterback coaches that have come to see me have told me that they like velocity on the ball, my accuracy, and footwork. He said many of the same things and just that he felt like I'd fit in well with what they're doing (at Vanderbilt).

"It's absolutely a great offer to have. This spring I went for a visit and got to watch a practice and tour the facilities. I really liked the school, great academics with a football program on the rise. It's intriguing. I know it's called the Music City with a lot to do there, but we spent most of our time on campus, which is beautiful. I got to meet Coach Mason while I was there. He's a great guy who has things going in the right direction."

At the end of his sophomore year playing baseball, Dormady tore the labrum in his shoulder. It kept him out what looked t be a promising junior season after he passed for more than 3300 yards and 30 touchdowns as a sophomore.

Dormady is getting out there to show other coaches what he's about. He'll be competing at an Elite 11 quarterback camp this weekend in Dallas.

"My first offer was from the University of Houston," he said. "I'm going to see how the rest of the spring goes. I have some other coaches who want to come out here to watch me throw. In finding the right college, it's all about fitting in as far as that goes. I want to be on a campus with coaches I can enjoy and look forward to working with each day instead of dreading being there. It's about finding the right level of comfort."

For his sophomore performance, Dormady was named District Offensive MVP. His team, the Greyhounds, went 2-8 in 2013 without him under center.
