Bobcats Offer Chauncey Caldwell

Chauncey Caldwell, Hillside QB.

The Bobcats have offered around eight 2017 quarterbacks from high schools all across the nation. When they got to San Marcos, the first quarterback offered by Texas State head coach, Everett Withers, and his staff came out of Durham, North Carolina, when they offered Hillside quarterback, Chauncey Caldwell.

“I had an offer to go to James Madison from (Texas State offensive coordinator and quarterbacks) coach (Brett) Elliott and he went to Texas State so I got offered there too,” said Caldwell. “We were DMing and I was telling him congratulations and then he let me know that I also had an offer to go to Texas State.”

The 6’3”, 225-lbs junior has three other offers besides Texas State from James Madison, Elon and North Carolina Central. A familiar relationship with Withers and Elliott has Caldwell seriously considering Texas State, as he has plans to visit San Marcos this summer.

“It’s a real good relationship,” said Caldwell. “I met coach Elliott and coach Withers when they came down to my school a couple times. We have a pretty good relationship. I’ll go on a visit this summer and go to a camp. We’ll see where it goes from there.”

Considered by most as a dual-threat quarterback, Caldwell can run (reportedly a 4.58 40 before his junior season), but it’s his arm that jumps out of the screen on his Hudl video. The first couple minutes of his highlight reel are of him consistently hitting his receivers with over the shoulder fades for deep touchdowns, most notably at the 3:10 mark when he hangs the ball in the air for over fifty yards before it lands perfectly in his receiver’s arms in the endzone. His passes can be a bit shaky at times but the velocity and accuracy are there, the rest can be taught.

Caldwell led Hillside to a 12-2 record last season and he even got them to the third round of the playoffs, “We got deep in the playoffs and we should have won it all but God has another plan. I will get a state championship my senior year,” said Caldwell.

With two of his four offers coming from within North Carolina, Caldwell says he isn’t concerned where the school is in relation to his home, as long as it’s the right fit,

“It’s not really an issue,” said Caldwell. “I want to go, I will go to a place where it will feel like home and it’s going to give me the best shot to become a better person and also a better quarterback. And where I can bring championships to the university.”
