Bercovici hearing from new schools

Michael Bercovici is one of the top quarterbacks in southern California but the strong-armed prospect from Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft still hasn't picked up any offers. Schools are showing lots of interest in him, though, so Bercovici hopes it's only a matter of time until offers start showing up.
Arizona State, Utah and Connecticut have been more involved with Bercovici, who said UCLA and Washington are also in the mix. He recently took an unofficial visit to meet with the Sun Devils and things went incredibly well.
"I took an unofficial to ASU the other weekend and man that was the bomb," Bercovici said. "I met coach (Dennis) Erickson, sat down in his office for about 20 minutes, coach (Trent) Bray showed me around the whole facility and I was in the quarterbacks room with coach (Noel) Mazzone, he's actually coming out to meet with my coach.
"It's such a home environment. The coaches are young, they're active. Everything there is about academics and football. There are just great people there and it seems like a fun place, a place where I can see myself in a couple years."
Bercovici, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound prospect, already had a relationship going with Utah assistant coach John Pease because the Utes signed former Woodland Hills Taft standout Lucky Radley in their 2010 recruiting class. That could play a big factor if Utah goes hard after Bercovici this year.
"They recruited Lucky so I had a lot of time to meet with coach Pease and he's a really cool guy," Bercovici said. "He's just a really nice guy. I can really relate to him a lot because he's really easy to talk to and stuff so hopefully I can pick up an offer there."
Connecticut has long been interested in Bercovici, one of the top quarterbacks at the EA Sports Elite 11 Quarterback Camp last weekend in Berkeley, Calif. He is expected to visit with the Huskies this summer.
"That's a great program, that's definitely an up-and-coming program," Bercovici said. "I've heard so many great things about the area around there, just a beautiful area. I love it here at Cal, it's such nice weather, so I have to take all that into account."
