There has been a change in plans for three-star quarterback Jason Forcier (6-2, 205, 4.55) from San Diego (Calif.) Saint Augustine. Forcier took a trip to Ann Arbor this past weekend and decided that he wants to be a Wolverine.
“I officially committed last night,” Forcier said. “I talked to (quarterback) Coach (Scott) Loeffler and he was very excited to hear the news.”
“Coach Loeffler wants me to get started right away,” Forcier said. “Ten minutes later Coach (Lloyd) Carr called and he told me he was happy to hear the news.”
“Coach Carr told me he was looking forward to me coming back to Ann Arbor and to be part of the Wolverine tradition,” Forcier said. “After I spoke to Coach Carr, he talked to my parents for quite awhile. Everyone was very happy.”
“Once I graduate from high school I’m going to take two weeks off to enjoy my family and friends,” Forcier said. “Then I’m going to fly to Ann Arbor and participate in summer workouts with the team.”
“I’m very excited about Michigan,” Forcier said. “One of the reasons that I chose Michigan is because I always wanted to be a Wolverine.”
“That’s the type of players that Michigan recruits,” Forcier said. “Players that want to be Wolverines. I think that is the reason they are so successful.”
What will it feel like when Forcier runs onto the green grass of the “Big House” for the first time?
“I’m sure there will be butterflies,” Forcier said. “But I will stay cool, calm and collective.”
“I’m sure it will be a memorable experience.”
Michigan is getting double-threat at quarter in Forcier. He passed for 2,915 yards and 40 touchdowns against eight interceptions in 2004. On the ground Forcier rushed for 1,014 yards and scored 16 touchdowns.
Michigan could end up smelling like a rose with Forcier.
Michigan wins the services of Forcier over offers from ASU, Oregon, Colorado, San Diego State and Utah.
