Mobility Plus

Troup High School dual-threat quarterback Blake Lynch is picking up steam on the recruiting trail. Although he's only a rising junior, he's receiving interest from across the country.

"My recruitment is going really good," Blake Lynch said. "I'm actually visiting Texas soon because I've been invited to the Spring Game. I've also been invited to Mississippi State, Alabama, Texas Tech and Georgia State."

Though no offers have been extended just yet, Lynch believes they could be just around the corner.

"I'm getting strong interest right now," he said. "I think Mississippi State is the closest to offering....or Texas."

Lynch, a 6-foot-3, 190 pound signal-caller is looking for the right system in college. He believes a spread offense would best suit his talents.

"I'm not much of a pro-style quarterback," Lynch said. "I really like the spread offense because my biggest strength is how mobile I am. I need to work some on my passing, but, I'm still effective enough that defenses have to respect the pass and the run."

One school that could benefit from Lynch's preference is style is Big 12 newcomer West Virginia.

"I really like their spread offense," Lynch said. "They can run and pass so you can't just prepare for one thing. If you focus on the pass then they'll run on you. The spread is nice. I like West Virginia's because of the read option and they like quarterbacks who are mobile."

While his summer plans aren't officially confirmed just yet, Lynch is hoping to visit West Virginia in the near future.
