Charlton County quarterback Dwight Dasher had a season to remember. The two-star prospect led the Indians to a 14-0-1 record and back-to-back-to-back state championships as a senior by throwing for 2,357 yards and 27 touchdowns and rushing for over 800 yards and 12 touchdowns.
As impressive as those numbers are, Dasher, at 5-foot-10, 180-pounds is being recruited primarily as a defensive back and not at quarterback, his preferred position.
"I want to play quarterback at the next level, but most schools are talking to me about playing at defensive back," said Dasher. "Middle Tennessee State wants me to play quarterback. They said I could come in there and compete for a starting job right away. I hope to get early playing time. I'm gonna try to come in and start."
Middle Tennessee will have to replace Clint Marks who had 7,342 yards passing and 37 touchdowns as a three-year starter. Dasher is already thinking about joining the list of candidates to replace Marks. This is a BIG recruiting weekend for the Blue Raiders as he travels to Murfreesboro, TN for his first official visit.
"I'm really looking forward to meeting and talking to the coaching staff." said Dasher. "I want to major in Business, so I want to see what they offer academically. I also want to take a look at their athletic facility."
Dasher told GAVSV.com that he could commit to Middle Tennessee during his visit this weekend.
