Sam Proctor, a 6-1, 190 pound preseason All-American quarterback out of Pearland, Texas, sits high on the wish lists of several coaches, including LSU head coach Les Miles.

 

Proctor is a dual-threat signal caller who threw for 815 yards and seven touchdowns while rushing for 800 yards and 15 scores during his junior season at Dobie High School.

 

He transferred from Dobie this semester, and with the change he should be able to show more of his passing skills in Pearland's offense.

 

During spring training, Proctor says he has had visits from a host of schools, including, among others, LSU, Kansas, Florida, North Western, Nebraska, Oklahoma and TCU.

 

"Quite a few coaches have been out here," he said, "There have been a few visiting nearly every day."

 

Some of the coaches Proctor said he has enjoyed talking to the most in the early going of the recruiting process have been the LSU tandem of Miles and linebackers coach Bradley Dale Peveto.

 

"They came to see me practice a few days ago," he said of Miles and Peveto. "I was able to go to LSU's spring game and got to talk to coach Miles one on one for a few minutes. He let me know that he really likes the style of play I bring to field. I get fired up and have a high intensity level and quick release. They think that I would fit in well at LSU."

 

Proctor currently has scholarship offers from the Tigers, Oklahoma, Kansas and Houston, and said that he has not chosen a list of favorites, though he speaks favorably about LSU.

 

"Right now, picking favorite schools has gotten put on the back burner while I'm trying to get used to the new offense at Pearland," Proctor said, "But LSU sits very well with me."

 

Proctor says he and the Pearland squad have implemented a new offense this spring, and he has focused all of his attention on meshing with the other players mastering the offense.

 

During the off-season, he say he plans on focusing on becoming more of a pocket presence, and improving his intermediate passing before his senior year, as well as attending summer football camps.

 

"I will be going to the LSU camp," Proctor said, "There may be more as well, but that's the only one my family and I have committed to right now."

 

Academically, Proctor has been a strong student, claiming a 3.0 GPA and a 1270 on the SAT.

 

"I've always thought that if you can go hard on the field, you need to take that attitude everywhere," Proctor said of his views on school work, "If you go 100% in football, you should be willing to do it in English, too."
