LAS VEGAS, Nev. – For the second straight weekend, Anaheim (Calif.) Servite quarterback Travis Waller put on a show. The 6-3, 190-pounder was one of the top performers at the L.A. Nike Training Camp a week ago and he followed that up by having one of the best showings among over 80 teams last weekend at the Pylon 7on7 in Las Vegas.
Waller led his 7on7 team deep into the playoffs on Sunday.
Waller has already sky rocketed up the rankings on 247Sports and his ascension may climb even higher after the weekend. Currently Waller has offers from Washington, Colorado, Arizona, BYU and Northwestern. We expect that list to grow exponentially in the coming weeks and months as schools begin to catch wind of his immense talent.
As that list does grow, there are two schools that Waller hopes will join the party.
“Stanford and Texas,” Waller said of his wish list. “Those are my top ones right now. I’m going up to Stanford’s camp in June. I’m going to do that camp, show my talents and hopefully get an offer.”
The Stanford interest stems in part from Waller’s high academic background while the Texas interest stems from a childhood fandom.
“Growing up, I was a big Texas fan so I was always watching their games a lot,” he said. “I like their style of play for sure. They utilize the quarterback a lot and I definitely believe I can help them win games. Right now my coach is trying to reach out to them so hopefully he’ll get back to me.”
Waller also noted that Oregon is a school that he is hoping to hear more from after coming away very impressed from an unofficial visit.
Among his offers, three schools stand out.
“Definitely Washington, Northwestern and Arizona,” he said of the standouts. “For Northwestern, I’m a big academic guy, my mom is too so she really is considering that school. Washington is just a school I want to go to because of the spread offense. I talked to the coaches and they like me a lot. Arizona, the same thing, it can fit me well.”
With the academic background an important factor, there are a couple of other schools that have been in communication.
“I’ve been talking to Duke and Vanderbilt for a while,” he said. “They’re going to come back in the spring. A lot of schools are going to come back in the spring and see me throw so hopefully that’s when things will take off.”
Waller said that he hopes to commit before his senior year after taking some summer visits. Currently he is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback in the country by 247Sports and the No. 79 ranked prospect overall. The recruiting industry is not as bullish on Waller with the industry generated 247Sports Composite ranking slotting him at No. 214 overall nationally.
