Dillon Sterling-Cole (3-star quarterback Houston, Westfield HS):

Sterling-Cole was named the MVP of the Dallas Elite 11 camp earning him an invitation to Elite 11 finals. The 6’2”, 195-pound prospect is listed by some recruiting services as a pro-style quarterback, which may conflict with Kliff Kingsbury’s desire for a dual-threat QB.

His offer list is impressive, as he’s being offered by A&M, Oklahoma State, Arizona State, UCLA, Washington, Florida, and Mississippi State. Cole passed for 2,320-yards and 24 TDs in his junior campaign.

It would be nice to see Tech build a relationship with Sterling-Cole because he is absolutely capable of being a strong collegiate talent. As we learned last year, finding a quarterback is similar to finding a prom date; the more options you have the better, unless you want to go home alone. And Texas Tech Football can’t leave this year’s recruiting dance without bringing a strong quarterback home to Lubbock.
