There’s no doubt Lake Highlands quarterback Ricky Zorn is an outstanding athlete. Last season he passed for 1,900 yards and rushed for another 1,000 yards.

The only question is when college recruiters will take notice. Or rather, when they will begin making more scholarship offers to the 6-0, 182-pound senior. So far, Zorn says his only offer is from Air Force. His profile lists only Western Kentucky as showing any interest.

To his credit, Zorn isn’t panicking.

"I’ve been talking to schools like Western Kentucky, and a lot of other schools have shown interest," Zorn said. "But it’s obviously a waiting game."

This is the time of year many colleges are still hoping to land players who fit rigid profiles in terms of height, weight, speed, etc.. Eventually, most schools begin to expand their scope to include talented players like Zorn who may not fit the stereotypical measurements.

"I think a lot of the schools have a certain criteria they’re looking for," Zorn said. "I’m probably a little beneath the criteria height-wise and arm-strength wise."

Zorn said he has been to a lot of college camps, including visits to Houston, Rice and SMU. Knowing that he may not be a quarterback at the next level, Zorn attended Oklahoma’s camp as a defensive back and TCU’s camp as both a quarterback and defensive back.

LH coach Scott Smith said he hears glowing reports about Zorn from recruiters, so he’s confident his options will expand.

"I think eventually somebody’s going to pick Ricky up. I will be disappointed and surprised if they don’t," Smith said.

Zorn is in better position than most because he’s also one of the top-ranked students in his class academically.

"He’s a tremendous leader on and off the field," Smith said. "He’s bigger, stronger and in better condition this year, which is unbelievable because he’s one of the best-conditioned kids I’ve been around."
