When Kenterius Womack committed to Syracuse last week, he was a total unknown. He had released a highlight tape which caught the attention of offensive line coach Joe Adam. The Orange coaches moved quickly and went to Luverne, Alabama to visit the QB. While in Luverne, the coaches convinced Womack to visit the Hill later that week. He came up to Syracuse, liked the family nature of the program and ended up committing. Most colleges missed on him because Luverne is such a small, rural place. But incredibly, his high school head coach is Mike DuBose, the former head coach at Alabama. Yes, the Crimson Tide (’97-’00).
Womack is fascinating. Scott Shafer believes the Orange found a true gem, and have a smart kid, and a great athlete coming. Womack throws a nice deep ball and is very quick. But there still isn’t too much information on him, so The Fizz turned to Luverne high school assistant Andre Parks for more analysis.
Parks on his former quarterback still being awestruck about his whole situation, “He hasn’t really had to time to kind of catch his breath and really take in the magnitude of what’s really happened for him over the past couple of days because we’re talking about… going from having no offers to probably having 60 offers and being contacted probably by over 100 schools within a weeks time.”
Parks on Womack’s play-making ability: “The first things you see when you look at his highlight film is his mobility. He’s a guy that’s very…agile; he’s got super speed and quickness.”
On Womack’s passing game, “When you look closer, he’s also a very capable passer. He throws for a very high completion percentage; he’s got a strong arm. He can throw the quick game; he throws the deep ball well. He does an outstanding job of reading coverages.”
How prepared will Womack be for the Orange’s offense? “Mike Dubose, whose the former coach of Alabama, was our head coach here; he brought in the spread system that we run now which is a very complex system that a lot of colleges are running now…[Womack’s] intelligence and his passing ability is what separates him from the other mobile quarterbacks that are out there.”
