New North Carolina Central University head football coach Jerry Mack wasted little time securing his first recruit.

On Thursday, Mack was announced as the Eagles’ new head coach. On Monday, former Ravenscroft High School quarterback and New Mexico Military Institute transfer Quinn Billerman signed a national letter of intent to attend NCCU.

“Quinn is the type of quarterback that can dissect the defense, make all the throws and is intelligent,” said Mack. “He ran a similar style of offense at NMMI, so the transition should be an easy one for Quinn as he comes into our system.”

In three seasons at Ravenscroft, Billerman became the Ravens’ all-time leading passer with 6,152 yards and 62 touchdown passes from 2009-11. He capped his scholastic career by being named to the 2011 NCISAA Football Division I All-State Team.

Billerman is coming off a record-breaking sophomore season at New Mexico Military Institute. He set new single-season standards with 2,962 passing yards and 34 passing touchdowns in 2013. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound signal caller completed 176-of-335 passes (52.5 percent), averaged 246.8 passing yards per game and led the Broncos to an 8-4 overall record.

During his record-breaking campaign, Billerman threw for a season-high 494 yards and six touchdowns versus Scottsdale Community College on Oct. 5, completing a season-best 23 passes on 39 attempts. In the final game of the 2013 season, he was named Offensive MVP of the El Toro Bowl by completing 21 passes for 283 yards and three touchdowns in a win over Arizona Western on Dec. 7.

As a freshman at NMMI, Billerman passed for 1,938 yards and 14 touchdowns, averaging 176.2 passing yards per contest during the team’s 6-5 season.

“We’re really excited to add a young man of such high character, solid academics and extraordinary physical ability,” Mack said. “We’re excited about Quinn being our first signee in this new era of NCCU football.”

Billerman is expected to enroll for the spring semester at NCCU starting in early January.
