Bergeron with one offer, more likely

In an incredibly strong class for quarterbacks all over the country, a few others seem to have gotten lost in the shuffle a bit. One of those players is Brandon Bergeron of Lafayette (La.) St. Thomas More.
Schools are starting to take notice of him, though, and the 6-foot-2, 196-pound passer recently picked up his first offer.
"My first offer came from Memphis," Bergeron said. "It was right before I took my finals a few weeks back. They caught me off guard for sure. I've talked to my recruiter, coach (Galen) Scott, but that's it. I haven't had a chance to talk to the head coach just yet."
Bergeron has been busy so far this summer, hitting up a trio of camps.
"I've been to Ole Miss, LSU and Alabama for camps this summer," he said. "LSU went really well. They said that they're looking to take two guys. They already have one. They said that they'd keep in touch and they wanted to keep watching me throw.
"Alabama, they have a few offers out but I got to compete against one of their offers - Riley Ferguson. We kind of had a little one-on-one session with the QB coach and (Ferguson) and I were just kind of going tit-for-tat throwing. We went and toured the school and the coach told me they were going to evaluate my film and in the next week or two they'd let me know what was going on."
Bergeron has more camps coming over the next few weeks as well.
"I'm about to head over to Mississippi State," he said on Thursday afternoon. "They've been talking to me a lot. Then we're going to drive on down to Florida State and then over to Houston."
A couple of those schools could be on the verge of extending offers.
"I think Houston is close to offering me," Bergeron said. "They just said they need to see me throw again and compete against some other guys so I'm going to do that. Mississippi State was saying they could offer me too."
Bergeron admits that two programs he has visited stand out at the moment. However, he is not taking dismissing any program or taking anything for granted.
"LSU and Alabama were both awesome," he said. "But really, wherever I can get a full ride to go play in college I'll take it and be incredibly grateful."
