There is no question that Mark Sanchez (6-3, 215, 4.8) from Mission Viejo, Calif., is one of the best quarterbacks in the west and the nation. Sanchez was selected first-team all-league, all-county, all-CIF and second-team all-state for his junior season performance.
Sanchez was also selected his team’s offensive player of the year after completing 143 passes out of 191 attempts for 2,460 yards and 29 touchdowns.
Things are really beginning to pick up for Sanchez along the recruiting front. He has recently picked up his first two offers from Nebraska and Stanford.
USC, Notre Dame, LSU and Texas are also very much in the hunt for Sanchez’s services.
The Texas Longhorns could offer the talented signal-caller a scholarship any day. Sanchez has already talked to Longhorn head coach Mack Brown, area recruiter defensive back coach Dick Tomey and quarterback coach Greg Davis.
“Texas could come out this spring and watch me work out,” Sanchez said. “I am still very open to schools however.”
Sanchez will be one of those players who will be able to pick his school and when you have as many choices as he will his colleges chasing after you as has, his top schools are bound to change from time-to-time.
What is Sanchez looking for in a college?
“There are a lot of variables that will play into my decision,” Sanchez said. “One is definitely the academics of the university.”
“Then of course the football program, the head coach and the position coach will be considerations,” Sanchez said. “Then a lot of the little things like the weather and the school’s environment.”
The scouting report on Sanchez is he’s very competitive and is always ready to play. He has all the intangibles that you look for in a big time quarterback.
Sanchez has a bazooka for an arm, he makes plays and is an excellent field general.
It does read like the recipe for quarterback success.
