When Deejay Dallas committed to Georgia back in July, the four-star athlete was likely to play receiver for the Bulldogs. But he's since become his high school team's quarterback and that could mean the start of a whole new recruiting process.
Dallas, out of Glynn Academy in Brunswick, Ga., was moved under center by his high school coach in the hopes of giving the team spark. He's not only delivered on that front—-his Red Terrors are riding a six-game win streak—-he may also be a good enough quarterback to be recruited as one.
"If the opportunity presents itself, I will jump on it," Dallas told DawgNation.com about the possibility of playing quarterback at the next level. "But if it doesn't, then it doesn't. Regardless of however it happens, if it comes down to some major colleges want me to play quarterback, then I will go. If it's just some small Division I-AA school, then I won't go."
While Dallas wants to play quarterback in the SEC, he craves the spotlight and says his ultimate goal is to play on television on Saturdays. With Bulldog commit Jacob Eason, the country's top-rated pocket passer, coming to Athens, playing quarterback at Georgia doesn't appear to be in the cards for Dallas.
"I think Georgia is getting the number 1 quarterback in the nation and I want to play," Dallas said. "I still want to have a decent chance to play in college fast and make an impact. I don't know how I would feel about that is Georgia wanted me as a quarterback."
