Jerrod Heard has been well known for a while. Out of Denton (Texas) Guyer High School, the 6'2, 195-pound Heard is one of the highest-rated dual-threat quarterback recruits entering the event, carrying a consensus four-star tag. Heard passed for 2,138 yards with 35 TDs on the ground and added over 2,000 more yards through the air. He was the District 5-4A MVP. A Texas commit, he also had offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Baylor, LSU, Nebraska and Ohio State. Heard earned his offer after a strong performance at the Dallas event.
