Kennesaw (Ga.) North Cobb quarterback Tyler Queen is quickly making a name for himself in the class of 2015.

This past week, the 6-foot-2, 228-pound prospect camped at Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida and Miami and earned an offer at every one of those stops except UF.

He threw for the Gators on Tuesday, and although they didn’t offer immediately like the other four teams, head coach Will Muschamp and offensive coordinator Brent Pease praised his performance.

“They said I had good footwork, very strong arm and pretty accurate for how young I am,” Queen said.

Muschamp and Pease told him they are holding off on the offer because there’s a few more quarterbacks to evaluate this month.

“They were telling me they were very interested and they were going to take a look at all the guys in my class that are coming down next week,” he said.

Queen will camp at Tennessee and North Carolina next and hopes to reach a decision before the start of his senior season. Auburn is his No. 1 school right now, but Florida could push for that spot with an offer.

“They would definitely be amongst the top of the list because I really like what they’re doing down here,” Queen said. “I really like the campus. I like the coaching staff. They’re among the great coaching staffs in the country. It’s just good to see what they have to say about my playing and good to know that they’re going to go after me pretty hard.”
