Florida QB Ready for Big Senior Year

At 6'4. 186 Dunedin High School's Ryan Singer has prototype size at the QB position. With a 4.65 40, he also has the type of mobility that is coveted in today's college game. Singer has flown under the radar thus far and Scout.com caught up with the talented rising senior to discuss his recruitment.

Singer began his high school career in Georgia, "I started playing WR as a freshmen on varsity, but one day after practice the coaches saw me throwing the ball and they moved me to QB. The rest is history, I led my team to the State Title Game and threw for over 2,800 yards with 37 touchdowns and just two picks. We were running a spread based offense so I had the opportunity to throw the ball a bunch."

Singer then made the move to Florida, "We moved to Florida because my grandfather was sick and my mother wanted to be close to him. I arrived late at Countryside and they already had a player who had the starting spot. So I spent the year playing JV so I could get reps. After my sophomore year they re-zoned the Districts so I had an opportunity to go to Dunedin with my brother."

Last year Singer played in a run-based attack, "We had Adarius Bellamy (commit to South Florida) and ran a Wing-T offense where I only threw the ball 5-9 times a game. I felt that I could do much more, but that was the offense that had been implemented and I went with it.

With Bellamy now gone, things changed this Sping, "We are going to throw it a lot more next year as evidenced by the Spring Game. I had a solid Spring Game and hope to build on that momentum and lead this team into the playoffs in 2009."

As a player, Singer is confident in his abilities, "I feel my best asset is my decision making. I don't throw interceptions and I know how to read defenses. I think I showed those qualities as a freshmen and I plan on showcasing those skills next year."

On the recruiting trail, Singer has flown under the radar, "We did not have that many schools come through in the Spring and even fewer who stayed for practice. I read the updates that other QB's give and it seems that they had guys watching them all the time, hopefully my time will come in the Fall. I am confident that I can play big-time college football if given the opportunity."

Singer has one D-1 offer, "Western Michigan offered and I am excited at the opportunity that presents. Other schools that interest me include Tennessee where my Uncle played for Coach Fullmer, Colorado State, Indiana, Virginia, FAU, and South Carolina where I feel I can learn a lot from Coach Spurrier."
