It's very common for the top prospects in the state of Maryland to pick up offers from members of the Atlantic Coast Conference or the Big East.
It is a bit out of the ordinary, however, for a Big XII school to offer an east coast prospect so early in the recruiting process.
That's exactly what has happened with Gambrills (Md.) Arundel junior quarterback Billy Cosh. When Bill Snyder took over as head coach of the Kansas State football program once again after their 2008 campaign, he identified quarterback as a position of need.
Snyder found plenty of good ones during his first run in Manhattan and he believes he has identified another in Cosh.
"I'm up to two offers now," Cosh explained recently. "I've got them from Kansas State and Towson. Kansas State is great because of the coaching staff, which is great. Their offensive coordinator was previous at Utah as the offensive coordinator.
"I'd say my favorites are Kansas State, East Carolina, Virginia Tech, Virginia and Missouri."
Cosh hopes to help his stock rise even more with a few upcoming events.
"I'm going to attend Pitt's Junior Day on (February) 14 and some others.
"Lately I've been hearing a lot from Pitt, ECU, Syracuse and others. I'm going to attend the national 7-on-7 tournament at Rutgers."
