Four-star quarterback Josh Nunes (6-4, 207, 4.85) from Upland, Calif., was scheduled to throw in front of UCLA offensive coordinator Norm Chow, but the Bruin coordinator wasn't alone watching Nunes work out yesterday. Representatives from Washington and Nebraska were also on hand taking in the work out. While some may think that three's a crowd, Nunes probably thinks three is outstanding company.
"I thought threw pretty well," Nunes said. "It was nice to throw in front of Washington, Nebraska and UCLA."
"I am heading up to Santa Barbara today and I'll attend the Super 7 quarterback camp," Nunes said. "I'm still going to narrow things down here at the end of May.
"Regarding UCLA we should know pretty soon now," Nunes said. "I heard that Coach Chow had some good things to say."
Things are still very busy for Nunes on the recruiting front. He has a pending offer from Florida and he just received his 18 offer today from one of the world's finest academic institutions, Harvard.
"I received the official letter signed by Coach Murphy and the verbal from Coach Larkee," Nunes said. "Being offered by the No.1 academic institution in the world is an honor I will never forget."
"What people do not know is that my parents were considering sending me to their camp this summer before the offer even came," Nunes said. "An offer as prestigious as this changes my final choices a bit."
" I have had a great week including Junior day on Sunday at Stanford hanging with guys like Marlon Brown and Dalton Hilliard and then having visits from schools like Florida, Nebraska, and UCLA it's pretty cool."
Upland's recruiting coordinator Mike Esquivel has the latest on Florida and had something to say about Chow.
"Florida told me that if Josh becomes a Gator they are going to tailor their offense around him," Esquivel said. "Coach Chow was a class act and said we are definitely going to hear from him."
Besides Harvard, Nunes has offers from the likes of Arizona, Arizona State, California, Stanford, BYU, San Diego State, Utah, Colorado, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Louisville, SMU and Tennessee.
Nunes was co-League Offensive Player of the Year as a junior after he threw for 2,105, 14 touchdowns and only five interceptions in 216 attempts. He completed 124 of his passes hitting on 57.4 percent and he's smart too, his 4.6 GPA has Harvard coming to table.
