Decorated quarterback Andrew Luck of Houston's Stratford High School spent most of his spring break on the west coast.
Luck (6-4, 215 pounds) visited Stanford and California over the break and came away impressed with the academic packages each school presented. Before leaving on his trip he had a flurry of official offers from the like of LSU, Rice and North Carolina.
"Andrew is taking his time," father Oliver Luck laughs. "I'd wish he'd start narrowing his choices down. This recruiting is a dance and he's really looking for a school that has a great academic record.
"What's not to like about California and Stanford. Both are top academic schools with football tradition. Cal has had a lot of success under coach (Jeff) Tedford and Jim Harbaugh is a dynamo recruiter. For a kid from Houston, the climate isn't bad either. The campuses are different because one is a private school and one is public."
Cal has offered and Harbaugh is close to offering as well.
One school that has not heavily recruiting Luck is in-state power Texas. Texas has received a verbal commit from Southlake Carroll High School quarterback Riley Dodge this spring. Dodge is being recruited as an athlete for Texas.
"I really don't know if Texas is interested in Andrew or not," Luck's father said. "I don't know if they are recruiting another quarterback this year. We have Texas ties however. My wife has a couple of degrees from there and I have a law degree from Texas.
"But like I said this is like a dance. You have to find a school that likes you and vice versa."
Luck is currently running track for Stratford and will soon be starting spring practice.
