Nunes excited about latest offer

The offers continue to roll in for Upland (Calif.) quarterback Josh Nunes. The talented signal caller has been hearing from schools coast to coast and on Thursday, Nunes picked up his latest offer from one of the true heavyweight programs in the country.
When it comes to picking up scholarship offers, there are certain schools that pack a little more punch when they offer. One such school offered Nunes earlier today.
"I just got offered by Florida," Nunes said. "I'm very excited about that offer and I have a lot of interest in them right now. Coach Mullen has been the one recruiting me and he has a pretty good track record for developing quarterbacks.
"He was with Coach Meyer at Utah and worked with Alex Smith and then moved over to Florida with him and worked with Chris Leak and Tim Tebow. So you're talking about a Heisman Trophy winner, a national champion and a guy who was taken No. 1 overall in the draft, that's a pretty good resume.
"Coach Mullen compared me to Smith and said he thinks I would be a good fit in that offense. If I went there, they would do some things differently than how they do now, kind of tailer the offense around what I can do.
"I've never been to Florida before, in fact, I've never even been on a plane before but I definitely want to try and get out and take a visit there. There are a lot of schools that have come in the picture recently that I would like to visit like Tennessee, Oklahoma, Nebraska and of course Florida.
"My original plan was to narrow my schools down to five after Memorial Day but the way things are going, I might either push that date back so I can take some unofficial visits or instead of narrowing my list to five, it might be more like a top 10-12.
"I still want to commit early, but I don't see myself committing anywhere without first checking the place out. So I need to get together with my family and talk things over. Basically, just figure out what unofficial visits I can take over the summer and then I'll have a better idea of where the best place for me will be."
