VIDEO - Behold John Chiles, the OTHER Texas QB recruit

This video has been floating around the internet recently, filling Longhorn fans with hope and joy.

His name is John Chiles, from Mansfield Summit HS in Arlington, TX. A 2007 QB/ATH recruit, Chiles committed earlier this year to play football with the Texas Longhorns and was recruited as a QB. But with QBs Jevan Snead, Colt McCoy and Sherrod Harris already on the team and the five-star John Brantley also committing to the Horns, the team is packed with top QB talent. Many think he'll end up at some other position to see earlier playing time, but just watch this video and try to count him out.

Scout.com had this to say in their Waco combine wrap-up:
Mansfield Summit quarterback John Chiles showed up at the camp and tested off the charts, running the third fastest time of the camp at a 4.39. Many wondered if Chiles would shine at the camp, because his style of play is better accentuated in a position where he can pull the ball down and run. However, with his off the charts test scores he showed his athleticism while proving that also had a killer arm.

I don't know where he'll end up playing, but I can't wait.
