Teasley now up to 12 offers

He's a running back. No wait, he's a wide receiver. But, he could play defensive back. The thing about Queito Teasley is that you would want three of him on the field at any one time.

He's 6-foot and 180 pounds and runs a 4.3 40-yard dash. That is what is drawing many of the nation's best schools to Katy, Texas to see Queito Teasley. He has 11 offers in hand and is set to receive another on Monday.

"I really don't know how many offers I have," Teasley said. "Let's see there's Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Baylor, Oklahoma, Tulsa, Kansas, Arkansas, Pittsburgh, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Purdue."

A very important offer to Teasley is expected to be there on Monday. "Texas is supposed to be offering my on Monday," he said. "Their coaches told my coach that anyway."

Teasley is getting looks to play running back, wide receiver and defensive back in college. Does it matter which position a team wants him to play?

"It really doesn't matter to me," Teasley said. "I do really want to play offense though. Either running back or wide receiver."

Currently, there are only three teams that are recruiting him solely as a running back: Texas Tech, Kansas and Tulsa. What does Teasley like about playing the running back position?

"You have to have an extra sense on the field and you have to know which moves to use. It's a lot more challenging (than receiver or defensive back)."

So what is Nebraska recruiting him as?

"They told my coach that they like me as a defensive back," Teasley said.

Right now Teasley is favoring Texas, Oklahoma and Texas Tech. Distance is not a problem for him and he is planning on attending camps at Texas, Texas A&M and Oklahoma this summer.

Teasley is also looking to run track in college. He and his teammates recently won a state title in that sport. Teasley runs the 800-meter relay, the 200 and also does the long jump.

His best 200 time this year was 21.3. He has run the 100 in 10.4. That 10.4 time would have been good enough to win a state title in the 100 this year. However, the distance and difficulty of the 100 does not interest Teasley.
