Ross Trail has changed schools, he has gotten out to compete, and he is going to be busy this summer. One school has already offered this sophomore and you can get the latest on Trail here...

Ross Trail is a 2015 quarterback that moved to Mississippi from Arkansas back in January and he is now part of a strong Olive Branch High School football program.

Trail has already gotten out to compete and he faired well in Dallas, Texas at the Elite 11 Regional tryout.

"I think I did good out there. It was good going out there to see who there is to compete against at your age. It was good being around great coaches, guys like Trent Dilfer, and just learning from them," Ross said.

At the end of the event, Dilfer praised Trail, and that meant something to this sophomore.

"Coach Dilfer said I was one of the best in my class and it was special. I take pride in working hard and it felt good to get recognized by someone like him."

Trail is a 6-foot-2, 200 pound signing caller and many can see he has good size and how he throws a nice ball, but he feels a real strength of his is something not too many people could see.

"I feel I really bounce back well when things don't go the way you want them to. I may make a bad throw and mess a play up, but I take pride in bouncing back, standing back up, and making a statement."

One school has already seen enough in Trail to offer him a scholarship. The Memphis Tigers offered and the 2015 quarterback has family ties there.

"It was a special feeling when I got that offer from a few reasons," Trail said. "It was my first offer, so that was special, but my dad also went to college there and played football there, so that was special about the offer too. My dad played quarterback too."

Arkansas, Louisville, Missouri, and Ole Miss are showing interest in Trail as well.

No real leader for Trail at this time, but with Memphis offering and his ties to the program, he has a lot of interest in them. He also grew up right down the road from Arkansas State and he likes them too.

He plans to stay very busy on the road this summer and participate in a lot of one-day camps. Arkansas, Arkansas State, Auburn, Louisville, Missouri, and Ole Miss are the schools he listed.
