There is no doubt Virginia Tech is looking for a quarterback in the 2009 recruiting class. The Hokies are taking a long hard look at a 6-foot-1, 190-pound dual-threat prospect who is quickly gaining interest and offers.

"Camps are going great," he said. "I was just at Georgia Tech over the weekend and it was alright. I enjoyed it. I like the school, program and coaches.

"I love the location and how it sits right in the heart of the city. That quarterback situation actually fits me. Plus, the coaches were good people. They pulled me aside afterwards and said they like what I can do with the football and wanted to offer. I'm very excited about that it is a great place to be."

Proctor is considering visits in the near future to a number of schools.

"I think I'll be making a trip to Virginia and Virginia Tech or Clemson and South Carolina in the next week," he said. "I also plan to camp at Virginia Tech on July 12th."

What kind of interest is Virginia Tech showing?

"They are sending a lot of handwritten letters in the mail about what I can do and want me down at camp. That shows me they are really interested in what I can do. I want to look at the campus and go from there," he said. "Actually I know something about Virginia Tech since one of our players, George Bell went there.

"He had nothing but good things to say about Virginia Tech. He told me it's a great place to be to try to better yourself as a football player."

Currently Proctor holds a half dozen offers.

"I've got offers from Duke, Illinois, Maryland, NC State, Georgia Tech and East Carolina.

"Some of them have offered me as an athlete, some as a receiver and some quarterback. For me, I want to play quarterback. I'd love to, that is my biggest strength, but if it's a better scholarship at wide receiver I'll definitely look into it."

The three-star prospect finished up by discussing his attributes as a player.

"I think I make good decisions and I make them 100%. I never second guess myself even if I make a mistake," he said. "I'm dedicated to playing football and I'm always willing to learn something new. I never settle.

"I just need to work on my consistency. A lot of coaches tell me my arm matured, but I want to get it where I'm a college level pro-style quarterback."
