Leesburg 2018 QB Wyatt Rector makes stop at FSU camp

Leesburg's 2018 quarterback Wyatt Rector brought his glossy resume to Tallahassee on Wednesday
looking to impress the FSU coach staff at the Jimbo Fisher Football Camp.

Rector, who has passed and rushed for more than 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons at
Leesburg, did not disappoint, especially in the measurable drills. He showed his speed with a
4.47-second 40-yard dash, followed up with a 4.50 clocking. He also popped a 9-feet, 11-inch standing
broad jump.

Rector said he was a little disappointed with the way he threw the football in Wednesday's morning
session and he didn't get as many reps as he would have liked, but the afternoon session was more
spread out and Rector was able to show off his arm a little more.   "I'm really blessed to be able to get
the opportunity to be out here and compete with a bunch of good guys, and getting better as the day
goes on. I'm really having fun," Rector said.

Rector was throwing in the same session with the likes of 2017 FSU commit Bailey Hockman of
Powder Springs, Ga.; Michael Johnson Jr., of Sunnyvale, Calif.; Jacob Free of Brantley, Ala.; Bo Nix of
Scottsboro, Ala.; and Michael Penix of Tampa Bay Tech, just to name a few.

"It sets the bar. It makes me want to get better and ... see what I have to compete against and what I'm
up against in order to be at the next level," Rector said.

The 6-foot-3, 208-pound Rector is athletic and strong. His weight-training numers are equally
impressive, with a 475-pound max squat and he's done 10 reps at 405 pounds. He also benches 275
and has put up a 285 clean-and-jerk. Rector has three offers so far from Southern Miss, USF and
Eastern Kentucky.

"My favorite one so far has got to be Southern Miss, but I'm only going to be a junior, so I'm going to
keep thinking it out and not going to commit anywhere probably until my senior year, once I feel
comfortable with everything and get settled down and more mature," Rector said.

Wednesday's session was his second FSU camp of the summer. He attended the June session, as
well, and his father said FSU invited him back for more. He'd love to see an FSU offer in his future.

"That would be such a blessing," said Rector, who will camp at North Carolina on Friday, "I've been
wanting to play at a big level like this since I was a little boy and to be able to get an offer from them
would be a dream come true."
