NLA Houston 100: QB Recruits

Houston Eisenhower QB Trey Roberts

FOX Sports NEXT got the chance to take in some action at the Next Level Athlete Texas Top 100 Showcase in Houston. Here are a few notes on a couple of the quarterbacks who participated.

League City (TX) QB Zach Cripps (6-2, 217)
Early in his career, it took Cripps a little while to find his stride. But now it's safe to say he's getting it. In one of his early games during his junior season, Cripps lit it up with over 400 yards and five touchdowns. 

Now, he is ready to see the fruits of his labor.

"Northwestern said they would offer me, but they have not come down to see me yet with the official (offer)," Cripps said. "I'm going to Texas State for the junior day and utsa for junior day."

He also said that a trip to Northwestern is in the plans as well, along with a number of one-day camps. As a junior, he threw for 2800 yards and 23 touchdowns and ran for another 538 yards with 12 touchdowns.

Houston (TX) Eisenhower QB Trey Roberts (6-1, 190)
Though the numbers aren't as eye-popping as other guys at his position, Roberts is a more than capable player who is looking to have a great spring.

Based on what is going on for him right now, it looks like it will be exciting for him this spring. 

"SMU just offered me, but a couple of other schools came by, like Stanford and Texas A&M. That's about it," Roberts said. "I've also been invited to the TCU junior day. The (Horned Frog) coaches want me to come out."

Roberts said he had about 1,000 yards of offense with eight touchdowns.

Spring QB Darius Campbell-Lee (6-2, 197)
After recording more than 2,200 yards, Campbell-Lee is starting to see a few schools taking notice. The dual-threat quarterback may be recruited as an athlete, but is okay with that.

"I haven't gotten an offer yet, but I am hearing from a few schools. Northwestern mostly," said Campbell-Lee. "I plan to attend a few camps to sow what I can do. 

According to the Colorado native, he ran 1500 yards and threw for 700 and scored over 20 touchdowns.

"Things are kind of slow for me right now, but I think things will pick up when spring ball comes around," Campbell-Lee said. 

Will get to as many camps as possible and try to impress some coaches.
