At Clay High School as a freshman, quarterback Brandon George and the Blue Devils qualified for an apearance in the 2013-14 Class 5A Florida High School Athletic Association Football State Championship.

But following what the Jacksonville native described as a “leap of faith”, George and his family made the move to Big 12 country, specifically the state of Oklahoma. Describing the decision as “tough leaving many life long friends behind, but sometimes we have to make sacrifices in order to chase a dream.”

After growing up where the St. John’s River meets the Atlantic Ocean, George transferred to Jones High School for his sophomore season.

Following a 6-5 campaign in 2014, George and the Longhorns went 13-1 last season, which included an appearance in the Class 3A Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association State Semfinals.

Now, heading into his senior year, George is preparing for this upcoming Fall, while balancing an academic schedule with a Power 5 recruiting schedule.

Which schools have you taken visits to? Notre Dame, North Carolina, North Texas, Kansas, Tulsa, Indiana, Bucknell, Tennessee, Texas, Georgia Southern, SMU, UCF, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

Which other schools do you plan to visit? New Mexico, Illinois, Colorado State, Air Force, Wyoming, and Ohio.

What have you thought about the school’s you have seen? All of the schools I have visited had beautiful campuses and great facilities. Each of the coaching staffs were very personable and stressed the importance of being a student athlete, which is very important to my family and I.
Do you see yourself fitting more in a dual threat scheme, traditional under center, or both (prostyle)? My skill set leads me to believe that I have a good chance at excelling as a dual threat QB.

Here’s a long one! When we look at prototypical dual threat quarterbacks, we place them into categories based off traits. To us, Brandon, you remind us of Baker Mayfield. The ability to run the passing operation, display an understanding of zone read concepts in the running game, and extending plays both from outside and inside the pocket. Tell us a little about your performance on the field, and being able to make the type of impact you do for your offense. Initially, I appreciate the reference to Baker Mayfield. We run a very dynamic RPO (Run Pass Option) style offense which allows me to make run/pass checks at the line of scrimmage.  With that being said, I also have the ability to drop back in the pocket and throw the ball down the field.  Whenever you have a Quarterback that can be dynamic with his arm or legs, it puts stress on the opponent’s defense.

Where do you need to make the biggest improvement in your game? Being more familiar with protections and fronts. However, physically I can improve in every aspect of my game.

What kind of offseason training have you been involved in? My daily schedule consists of my football team lift, attending strength and speed training with a private coach, and throwing sessions.

When would you like to decide which school you will end up at? I intend on making my commitment before the season starts.
