Casey Cochran, a 6-foot, 227-pound pro-style quarterback from Monroe (Conn.) Masuk, has a verbal offer from Boston College and he's excited about that.
Not only does Cochran simply appreciate the opportunity to play at the highest level of college football. He thinks BC is the kind of football program that could be a perfect fit for a quarterback like him. His game has been improving nicely over the past year and he has become a well-rounded pocket passer.
"One of the reasons I like BC is because I feel like my strength is as a pro-style quarterback," he explained.
"Last year I got a lot of work reading coverages. This offseason I've worked on trimming down and getting my body fat down. That will help this year with my footwork and extending plays in the pocket. That will help me this year."
Cochran picked up an offer from Boston College much earlier this year, back in March, so he has been on the Eagles' radar for quite some time. He camped at BC this summer and was at UConn before the summer even began. The only other camp he has attended over the past couple of months was at Harvard.
While UConn did not offer Cochran said the coaches seemed "a little bit interested" and want to see his junior tape later this year.
"I don't have any favorites right now," Cochran concluded. "As far as grades go I'm shooting for the Ivy League, but talent-wise I think I'm probably more like an ACC guy."
Last fall Cochran passed for 2,984 yards and 26 touchdowns as a sophomore.
