    Jason Forcier
    San Diego (CA)
    St. Augustine

    Height: 6-foot-2
    Weight: 205 pounds
    40-yard dash: 4.55 seconds
    Vertical leap: 30 inches
    GPA: 3.0
    SAT: 1060

    Jamie Newberg claims Forcier has visited Ohio State unofficially and the Insiders list him as having medium interest in the Buckeyes. Forcier recently visited Notre Dame and they look to be his leader at the moment. His video is impressive. He's an excellent athlete who escapes the rush very well and looks more like a running back than a quarterback in the open field. He has a strong arm and can make throws all over the field. Rushed for over 800 yards and had 8 touchdowns on the ground as a junior. Threw for over 1300 yards. He had 10 touchdown passes and 7 interceptions.

    Forcier attended the Columbus Nike camp, where he looked good:

    Apparently, Forcier's father is from Michigan, so that explains his interest in Midwestern schools.

    Here is a recent free article about Forcier going to Arizona camp with a mention of his visit to tOSU

    http://www.tucsoncitizen.com/index.php?page=college&story_id=061104c1_recruitingtrail

    He has said that he would prefer to leave the state of California and he seemed really interested in the Big Ten.

    But I do find it interesting that he went to tOSU Nike camp, toured our campus, visited Spring Practice, likes the Big Ten, wants to go to school outside of CA and still does not name us among his favorites. :(

    Is that helmet he's got on what I think it is or am I just imagining things? Why do so many HS use that blasted helmet?

    He looks like a quarterback in the mold of Greg Brady

    Forcier was at OUS Sunday, for the one-day senior advanced camp. Earlier, he came in for the Columbus Nike camp. That's two trips from San Diego to Columbus in two months. Maybe he's more interested in the Bucks than he's letting on at this point....

    Probably for the same reason scUM ripped it off from Princeton in the first place. I share your disdain though, and I think that any public school in Ohio that uses that helmet, the scUM fight song, etc., should have its funding revoked.:scum4:

    Forcier was told by tOSU that he is right behind Schoenhoft. He also likes scUM and MSU and figures Schoenhoft can't go to all three schools. He seems willing to play 2nd fiddle and go to one of the schools that don't get Schoenhoft.

    Forcier confirmed again that tOSU, MSU, scUM are waiting on Schoenhoft before they decide whether to offer. ND, scUM, MSU, Ohio State, Illinois, USC and UCLA are the favorites. The article was written by the Irish site and they seem confident in their chances with Forcier if they offer.

    There's also a Schoenhoft article from today which discusses Forcier, and confirms that OSU, MSC, and Michigan are waiting on Schoenhoft before offering Forcier. What about Sanchez? Are the Bucks waiting on him as well? Do you think that OSU is looking at Forcier as being the second QB in the class?

    We'll wait on Sanchez all the way to LOI day if he's still undecided. He is not one you would pass up.

    IMO if we take two QB's, the pecking order at this point would be:

    Schoenhoft - I don't see him coming to OSU. If ND offers, it'll be a ND/um race. If not, I think it's a um/MSU race.

    Forcier - I hear he did very well at camp. Has legit speed and can tuck the ball and run as well as throw. I think he may get an offer as soon as Schoenhoft turns us down. I'd like our chances if Schoenhoft goes to ND. I think we can beat out MSU, and I don't think he likes um's depth chart. I'm not sure um will offer regardless. They may hold a "QB" spot open for Bass, even though he'll never play QB there.

    Stull - I think if he was able to attend camp he'd be right up there (or above) Forcier. I hear he put on a nice performance for the um coaches. I think he could still get an offer a couple games into his season, or earlier if things are looking down for Forcier. He says he's willing to wait on OSU, and I get the feeling he'd most likely commit on the spot.

    I don't think we'd get past this point, because Stull would commit. There's also Jackson from Fla, but I think he might get offered at WR/ATH. The coaches were trying him out at receiver at camp and he looked good.

    Even if we don't get Sanchez, if we get either Forcier or Stull I'd be happy. I think both have a big upside with a lot of potential. That being said, Sanchez is probably the out of state recruit I want the most.

    Clevebucks there is an update on Rivals about schoenhoft and ND. They may be losing alot of ground by not offering him.

    I agree with everything in your evaluation Clevebuck except I feel like we are sitting better with Schoenhoft then you are giving us credit for. I don't think we lead at this point. However, I am not sure that anyone leads at this point. His comments after camp seemed pretty positive to me. I thought I read today that his parents are OSU fans, so we may have someone in our corner encouraging him. So many great options though, I hope we come out of this with some good quarterbacks.

    I didn't really get to read the ND update, but I can pretty much guess that he's turned off by the delay in offering him. I found this quote from the ND site:

    "If they offered, they'd be up at the top and make things more complicated," said Schoenhoft. "I'm kind of tired of waiting. That has kind of turned me off them a little bit."

    So while I think he has been turned off, an offer would probably get them right back in the hunt. I think RS would like to commit soon, so they may play themselves right out of the picture.
