in Houston, Texas
where he was a Parade All-American
in 2000. Ranking number 9 on the Austin-American Statesman
's College Football Recruiting Fab 55 for 2000. Committed to attend The University of Texas at Austin
Mock was a backup quarterback during the Chris Simms
years, before getting the starting
job in 2003. He played well in the first several games of the season before being pulled for Vince Young
during the 2003 game versus the Oklahoma Sooners
. He alternated time with Young after that, providing a very accurate classic drop-back threat to complement Vince Young's scrambling abilities.
Mock was the subject of much speculation during the 2003-2004 off-season as to whether he would transfer from Texas based on Vince Young winning the starting job. However, he decided to stay at Texas to be second string quarterback for the 2004 season.
Mock went undrafted
and attempted to sign on with several National Football League
teams. Eventually, he signed to play QB for the Austin Wranglers, based in Austin, Texas
