Colorado State is the only other listed offer for Del Rio, according to, but the quarterback certainly appears to be on the market.

Should he decide to go elsewhere, what would the Cowboys' plans be for QB in the 2013 class?

They have not currently offered scholarships to any uncommitted quarterbacks in the class, and had appeared to turn significant attention to the 2014 prospects at the position, like local prospects Justice Hansen of Edmond Santa Fe and David Cornwell of Jones.

As for the senior class, Elbert Speed of North Crowley in Fort Worth, Texas, is a name that has popped up recently, but otherwise, the Pokes have kept their quarterback backup plan quiet.
