With every new offer, quarterback DeVante Kincade (Dallas/Skyline) tends to turn his intensity level up primarily for his critics. His mission to prove his doubters wrong escalates with every action.
So, imagine his level of intensity as Tuesday came to a conclusion. The three-star signal-caller picked up an offer from Ole Miss Tuesday afternoon and another from Arizona Tuesday evening.
For those keeping score, that’s three offers this week – all in roughly a 24-hour span – and 10 total for the 6-foot, 180-pound, dual-threat quarterback who in March earned a spot in the Elite 11 national competition in July in California.
“I remember the first one I got from Kansas State,” Kincade said, referring to the Wildcats’ offer at the beginning of the year. “I wasn’t expecting all this, though. It’s just hitting me.”
Kincade said Ole Miss quarterbacks coach Dan Werner offered him Tuesday afternoon, and Arizona tight ends coach Spencer Leftwich offered Tuesday evening.
“They were saying how they liked I’m a vocal leader and how I go through practice smoothly,” Kincade said. “We’ll get intense in practice, and they liked how I handle everything on the field.
“I just want to show all the coaches that I’m not a fluke. When they come and watch me, I try to show that and more. I’m not going to take it lightly on anyone. I want to show all the college coaches that I’m consistent.”
Kincade also has offers from Notre Dame, Oregon State, Mississippi State and others. He’s also getting high interest from Nebraska, Texas Tech, Washington and Oregon. Kincade is ranked No. 21 among all dual-threat quarterbacks and is ranked No. 64 among players in Texas.
