Things are finally starting to pick up for Michael Eubank.
Corona (Calif.) Centennial coach Matt Logan confirmed Wednesday night that Eubank, a 6-foot-5, 232-pound pro-style quarterback, has picked up an offer from Utah State to go along with one already from Northern Colorado.
Logan also said in a text message that San Jose State might be close to offering and that Eubank has scheduled a visit to Arizona State at the end of this month and the Sun Devils said they would offer him. Arizona State already has a commitment from Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft quarterback Michael Bercovici.
In one of the more puzzling developments this recruiting cycle, Eubank seems to have everything going for him - an undefeated team, great stats - but still hasn't picked up many offers even though he's widely considered one of the best quarterbacks in Southern California.
Eubank has completed about 70 percent of his passes for 1,088 yards with 10 touchdowns and one interception and has proven to be a legitimate running threat, too, with 438 rushing yards and seven scores. Centennial running back Barrinton Collins has 911 yards on the ground and 15 touchdowns.
At the Berkeley Elite 11 Regional, Eubank, a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, was definitely the biggest quarterback working out and arguably had the strongest arm. He also impressed at the Los Angeles NIKE Camp and at other stops this off-season.
Rivals.com rates him as the No. 25 pro-style quarterback nationally and No. 70 in the California state rankings.
Up until this point, though, only Northern Colorado had offered. With Utah State on board and San Jose State and Arizona State showing more interest it finally looks like Eubank is starting to get some of the respect he deserves.
Corona Centennial is 6-0 and has outscored its opponents 304-62 so far this season. The Huskies host Corona Santiago Friday night and then have a big matchup at Norco in two weeks.
