When it comes to recruiting, a player's junior season performance is huge in the process in terms of getting noticed from college coaches. Unfortunately for Los Gatos (Calif.) quarterback Danny Sullivan, he had to sit behind a senior and didn't see the field too often. Still the signal caller looked strong at a couple of summer events and is off to a strong start this year.
Los Gatos runs a pro-style offense and recently had Stanford quarterback Trent Edwards running the show for the program. While it's not fair to compare Sullivan to Edwards just yet, he definitely has the look of a Div I quarterback and has all the tools be successful at the next level.
Sullivan, 6-4, 205 pounds worked out with the top group of quarterbacks at the NorCal Nike camp and EA SPORTS Elite 11 workout the following day at Cal and looked strong at both events. The signal caller throws a beautiful ball, spins it consistently and has a very live arm. He can make all the throws, has plus accuracy and good footwork in the pocket.

Sullivan has worked out with noted quarterback guru Roger Theder and it's evident that he has been very well coached as his mechanics are strong and he knows where to go with the as well. We just watched film of Los Gatos' season opening 41-0 win over Aragon where Sullivan was 9-13 for 167 yards and three touchdowns and we we're again very impressed.
Sullivan was throwing outs and skinny posts on an absolute line and will only get better as he gains more experience. After three games, the quarterback has completed 26-46 passes for 440 yards and six touchdowns with two picks. He definitely should be considered a Div I prospect and is getting serious recruiting attention right now.
"I've gotten calls from Nevada, San Jose State, Oregon, UNLV, Utah, Idaho and Arizona State," Sullivan said. "A few of the schools have talked about offering but no one has yet. When one of the schools call, they always ask if anyone has offered so I'm not sure if they're waiting for someone to offer before they do or what but I'm just focusing on my season right now."
