Meet the Future Frogs: Kolby Listenbee

The fourth and final member of the Recruiting Class of 2012 that will be enrolled this semester and taking part on spring practice with the Frogs is Kolby Listenbee, the 6'0" 170lb athlete from Arlington Bowie.

Aside from getting started toward his degree early and getting used to being part of a collegiate program a few months before most of his classmates, it is good news that Listenbee is enrolling early so that it can be figured out exactly where he'll be lining up once he puts on the purple and white. He played quarterback at Bowie, throwing for 1,202 yards and 9 TDs (to go along with 746 rushing yards and another 9 TDs on the ground) while leading the Volunteers to a 9-4 record in a senior season that included a playoff win over Odessa Permian. He might get a shot at playing QB in Fort Worth, but it's not hard to imagine him as a wide receiver, corner or even safety.

Rivals gives Listenbee three stars, and ranks him as the 31st-best "athlete" in the country and the 65th-best overall recruit in Texas. To give you a better idea of his abilities, though, take a look at his very well put-together highlight tape:
