Regardless of how this turns out, thanks for posting the "inside" info.I heard we got a commit from a duel-threat QB last week from Lake Wales, Fl. His name is Eric Williams.
Here's an assessment from the article linked below -- FWIW, it sounds like he's got several D1 offers now, with the top one being from Temple:
Lake Wales at Largo - Lake Wales QB Eric Williams
Lake Wales lost starting arm Chayil Garnett, an Auburn commitment, to area-power Lakeland High before the season began but Williams has helped the program to a 4-0 start (not including the win in the jamboree we saw) with an offense averaging well over 60 points per game to this point. A senior prospect, Williams first caught our attention on that rainy Friday night via his legs, where he rattled off multiple long runs versus a stout Largo defense led by a pair of ACC-bound linebackers. He stands a legit 6-foot-3 or so with long legs and a stride that helps him gain ground in a hurry. There is some savvy beyond the speed here, though, that makes him an intriguing floor candidate at another position should quarterback not work out at the FBS level. The lefty, who holds offers from Temple, Kent State and Eastern Kentucky at this time, can push the ball outside the numbers and play accurate despite limited attempts. Improving an elongated, yet condensed throwing motion could help Williams' stock rise on the recruiting trail.
