John David Weed: 880 passing yards already.

Tyler (Texas) Junior College quarterback John David Weed (6-5, 223) has laid it out pretty simply in what he's looking for in a college program.

"I'm just looking for the best program, a D-I team that passes the ball a lot and a place I can build my future on," said Weed.

Though he's yet to receive an offer, there has been no shortage of interested schools.

"I'm only getting letters as of right now, from Houston, Kansas State, TCU, Missouri, Louisville, Purdue, Utah State, Utah, North Texas and Arizona," said Weed.

A native of the greater Houston area, Weed played his prep football at Cypress Creek High, just outside of Houston.

"Location is a big thing for me," said Weed.  "I want to be close to my family.  But basically, the best football team to offer me is where I'll go."

A 2004 graduate of Cypress Creek, Weed redshirted the 2004 season at Tyler then played the 2005 season.  He is in to his redshirt sophomore season at Tyler, which gives him two years to play college ball, hastening his presence in college.

"I want to be able to come in and play as a junior," said Weed. "I'm hoping some offers start coming in, but it depends on them.  Schools wanted some tape on me and are watching me.  I'm just going to focus on my season and really try not to focus on recruiting."

On the young season, Weed has thrown for 314, 333 and 233 (880 total), nine touchdown passes and two interceptions.

Weed is planning to graduate in December.
