"UCF has been by the house to visit me. Yesterday the new coach at Florida who just came from Boise called and said he is interested in me and two other quarterbacks do thats pretty exciting"

"My dream school was always Penn State but I am wide open to any program that's interested in me"

Closer look: Paxton is not really comparable to very many quarterback prospects we've seen here in Florida in that last few years. At 6'6 and 225 pounds Lynch has all the size that your looking for in a pro style quarterback.

Lynch has solid arm strength and more than ideal size but what separates from the pack is his ability to hurt you with his feet. As listed above in his vitals. Lynch has rushed for over 1000 yards and 27 touchdowns in the last 3 seasons.

Bottom Line: Paxton is a unique quarterback prospect. At 6'6 225 he is a pro style quarterback with the ability to run. He would also be a perfect fit for a Pistol type offense as well.

It's not often that you find a kid with as good of a combination of size, speed and athleticism as Paxton has.
