Corona (Calif.) Centennial coach Matt Logan cannot understand why more colleges aren't looking at his quarterback, Michael Eubank, but if the 6-foot-5, 232-pound prospect continues to play like he did this past weekend interest should pick up quickly from major programs.
Eubank finished with 186 rushing yards, 184 passing yards and five total touchdowns (three running and two passing) as Centennial easily defeated Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei, 44-13.
Rated as the No. 25 pro-style quarterback and No. 70 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com, Eubank only has an offer from Northern Colorado and has some interest from Arizona State. He said no other programs have been too involved yet.

"Isn't that amazing?" Logan said. "It's absolutely amazing. If he's not one of the best quarterbacks in the area, if not the state, it just blows me away. It absolutely blows me away. As the season progresses I'm sure he'll hear from more schools.
"He's just scratching the tip of his potential. He's just so athletic and such a great player and such a hardworking kid there are a lot of quarterbacks who are what they are right now where he's not close to that. He's 10 times the player he was last year."
A three-star prospect by Rivals.com, Eubank was clearly the best player in Centennial's victory this past weekend. He scored on runs of 86, 2 and 9 yards and threw touchdown passes of 12 and 65 yards as Centennial jumped out 44-0 after three quarters.
Eubank looked solid at the Los Angeles NIKE Camp and the Berkeley Elite 11 regional this spring and now he's starting to back it up in his senior season. Now he hopes college coaches take notice.
Centennial is off to a great start this season with two blowout victories heading into this week's matchup with Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral which is led by 2012 quarterback Matt Morin and four-star wide receiver Antoine Arnold.
"I didn't know quite what to expect," Logan said of the Mater Dei win. "Our first game wasn't a super-good test for us and they played a good team in Carson. Carson has some good athletes so I wasn't quite sure where we were but we had some good answers."
