Full RideB/R VideoMay 29, 2012

Whitewright High School (Whitewright, TX) quarterback Tyrone Swoopes is looking to follow in the steps of former Texas Longhorns signal-caller Vince Young.

Swoopes, like Young, is a big dual-threat quarterback, standing 6’4” and weighing 220 pounds. The 4-star QB threw for 1,394 yards and rushed for 2,267 yards while combing for 44 touchdowns.

Full Ride has 247Sports’ national recruiting analyst Barton Simmons and Bleacher Report’s Michael Felder break down Swoopes’ game and tell you what to expect from the uber-athletic quarterback in the future.

Watch to find out how Swoopes compares to Young, and hear what he might be able to do better than the Longhorns legend once he gets to Austin.

247Sports’ No. 3 ranked dual-threat quarterback and No. 66 overall blazed a 4.51 40-yard-dash time last year.  He is also the nephew of former WNBA star Sheryl Swoopes.
