Cedar Hill quarterback Damion Hobbs spurns BCS programs, commits to Arkansas State
Despite holding offers from national powerhouses such as Nebraska, Arkansas and Missouri, Cedar Hill quarterback Damion Hobbs followed his heart and committed to Arkansas State on Monday.
“I felt like it was time,” Hobbs told Scout.com’s James Bryant. “I have been to all the other schools, I know what each has to offer and I truly feel that Arkansas State is best place for me.”
Newly appointed Red Wolves head coach Gus Malzahn, who served as Auburn’s offensive coordinator for three seasons, was the first to offer Hobbs and played a big role in landing the three-star prospect.
“Arkansas State is a great place,” Hobbs said. “I felt different when I was there than I did at the other schools, I felt like I was at home. Other schools had the great facilities, they didn’t have Gus Malzahn.”
Last season, Hobbs passed for 997 yards and eight touchdowns and also rushed for 875 yards and 11 scores as he quickly established himself as one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the D-FW metroplex.
