ESPN 300 QB excited about future out West

As a junior, quarterback Joshua Dobbs (Alpharetta, Ga./Alpharetta) torched defenses with both his arm and his leg, passing for 3,113 yards and 29 touchdowns, and rushing for 200 yards and two touchdowns. Last Friday, the 6-foot-3, 190-pound ESPN 300 prospect picked up where he left off last year. In a 35-28 loss to Milton, Dobbs completed 20-of-38 passes for 234 yards, two touchdowns and rushed for 138 yards and a touchdown. He even unveiled a spin move that looked right out of a video game, at one point using it multiple times in one play to avoid tackles and for a 46-yard run to the end zone.

"I do not even know where that came from," Dobbs said after the game. "Honestly it was just reaction."

The No. 6 dual threat quarterback committed to Arizona State in June, and he feels he will be well utilized in Tempe, Ariz.

"They have an air-raid offense at Arizona State, but they do incorporate some quarterback runs too," Dobbs said. "My goal is to make the defense fear my arm and my legs. To always give them something to think about."

Dobbs was happy with how his team performed overall, but admits his team still has room to improve.

"I felt like I played well personally and we did well as a team," Dobbs said. "We did not execute as well as we wanted to tonight, so we have a lot of things to work on for next week as we begin region play."

Once he arrives on campus, the four-star prospect will be the first prospect from Georgia in at least the last decade to play for the Sundevils.

"It is a different environment out there in Arizona," Dobbs said. "It is going to feel hot every day of the year. But I am looking forward to it and I think it will be a great fit for me. I think I am going to enjoy my time as a Sundevil."

Although he admitted that some schools that still keep in touch, he has not discussed plans with his family to take official visits anywhere but to Arizona State at this time.

"As of now I am still committed to Arizona State," Dobbs said. "I love the new coaching staff and the change they have brought to Arizona State football, including the offense, which is very similar to what we have here at Alpharetta."

Dobbs says he is looking forward to finding a big home game at Arizona State in order to schedule his official visit.
