The depth of quarterback talent in the Midwest for the 2014 class has caused many teams to take their time deciding which prospects to pursue. Franklin, Wis., quarterback Sean McGuire is one whose stock is starting to rise this spring.
"I don't have an offer yet… I'm still waiting on that first one, but I am confident a lot of schools are really close," McGuire said. "I think with these summer camps coming up I could pick up an offer in the next couple weeks, hopefully."
The 6-foot-1, 204-pound McGuire is coming off a 7-on-7 win this past weekend at the IMG Midwest Regional with his Core 6 team. That performance drew rave reviews from those in attendance, and college coaches have taken notice.
"Since then, recruiting has picked up," McGuire said. "Syracuse and Indiana are a couple [showing interest]. Most of the schools have been in contact with my Core 6 coaches. Most want to see me in camps and see me throw in person."
Indiana already has seen McGuire throw and is a school the Wisconsin native is high on.
"Hopefully sometime soon I'll be down at Indiana and it will spark some more interest," McGuire said. "I was actually at Indiana last summer, and it was probably my favorite camp. I love the program. My dad grew up in Indiana a Hoosiers fan, so it would be nice [to be offered by them]."
McGuire plans to return to Indiana's camp this summer. He also expects to camp with Northern Illinois on June 6 and is looking at Iowa State and several others for camp appearances.
As a junior, McGuire threw for 1,500 yards with 14 touchdowns. He also rushed for 400 yards and eight more scores.
