One of the top quarterbacks in the country for the 2002 recruiting season attends Los Gatos High School in California. His attention is well deserved and will only grow as the process moves on towards February.
He very well could be one of the top two pro-style quarterbacks in the entire country. He goes by the name of Trent Edwards on the football field and in recruiting circles he is beginning to gain the nickname "Pinpoint".
Edwards is 6-foot-4 and 185 pounds. He runs the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds and has a vertical jump of 32 inches. Those number really don't tell the story of this pure athlete.
But, his ability to pretty much pinpoint his targets is the reason for the nickname. He could very well be the most accurate passer in the country and his junior year stats speak for themself.
"I had a completion percentage of 78.1 percent," he said. "I had 2,529 yards on 160 attepts and 125 complete passes. I had only four interceptions while throwing 29 touchdowns."
Those numbers are the totals of legends and Edwards is starting to establish himself as such a football player. And, with the senior year fast approaching it will probably happen sooner rather than later.
But, does he have a destination for those talents?
"Well, right now Stanford is definately my leader, but I also really like UCLA," he said. "Those two will definately get official visits."
"There are some others that have a legitimate chance as well though. Michigan, Michigan State, Miami and Florida are also schools I am thinking about."
And, have all of your favorites offered at this point?
"Yeah, with the exception of Florida and Miami," he said. "My favorites are only a few of the offers I have received already."
What are going to be some of your requirements?
"The most important thing would be academics and then football," he said. "Football is not the only thing I am about. School is very important to me."
While school is very important to Edwards so is his final decision. And, everybody in the country will be waiting on pins and needles for "pinpoint" to make his decision.
