When you play on the same team with five-star linebacker Allen Bradford (5-11, 219, 4.54), four-star cornerback Shareece Wright (5-11, 180, 183) and the emerging Jimmy Smith (6-1, 175, 4.5) it's tough to get recognition.
You would probably get even less attention than the Maytag repair man even if you are the quarterback but Colton, Calif., signal caller Brad Sorensen (6-4, 200, 4.9) is beginning to make a name for him in his own right.
Sorensen was an all-league selection as a junior and threw for 11 touchdowns. Not to shabby when you take into account that both Bradford and Wright rushed for over a 1,000 yards each.
Sorensen has received recruiting interest from Utah, Colorado State, BYU, New Mexico, San Diego State, UNLV, Nevada and Boise State.
Sorensen attended the adidas camp held in Westwood, Calif., this past spring and the local Santiago Combine where many of the Inland Empire's best players compete.
One of the things that stands out with Sorensen is his leadership skills. Leadership is one of those intangibles that all successful quarterbacks have. He also has a good and accurate arm.
Sorensen is somewhat of a sleeper because Colton doesn't throw the ball a whole lot. When you have Bradford and Wright to hand the ball off to it is probably a good thing to run the football.
"I would like to play for a school that is relatively close to home," Sorensen said. "I want to make it easy for my family to come and see me play."
"Another thing I would like is the opportunity to play early in my college career," Sorensen said. "Academics will also be important when making my decision. I want to attend a school with an excellent academic reputation."
