Lindquist has two early offers

Jeff Lindquist hoped his Mercer Island, Wash., team would have a better record than 2-4 at this point in the season but the 2012 dual-threat quarterback is playing well and is getting lots of recruiting attention.
"We're putting out good effort," Lindquist said. "Our record isn't where we hoped it would be but we're trying to make it better and keep working hard."
Lindquist has thrown for about 950 yards with 10 touchdowns and he's also rushed for four scores so far this season.
Washington and Washington State have already verbally offered and he stopped by to see the Huskies when they hosted Nebraska a few weekends ago. He has not yet been to Washington State since Pullman is more than four hours away but the Cougars are still being seriously considered.
"From what I've seen, I've been to a practice and I really like how practices are run," Lindquist said of Washington. "I like coach (Steve Sarkisian) and coach (Doug) Nussmeier and most of the coaches. The game day, I really liked that experience because it was a lot of fun.
"Everyone is on an even playing field right now. I haven't put serious thought into where I want to start narrowing down interest yet. I'm going to wait until after the season to do that but Washington State is one I'm definitely still looking at."
Many other programs are showing interest in Lindquist. Stanford has been in close contact and Oregon, UCLA, Nebraska, LSU, Alabama, Duke, Cal and Oregon State are some others who have been involved as well.
In his sophomore season, Lindquist threw for 1,459 yards and 13 touchdowns and rushed for 513 yards and 11 scores.
