Ohio QB grabs first offer

There seems to be no end to the quarterback talent in the state of Ohio in the 2013 class. At least nine passers from the state claim Division I offers already, and one of the latest to join that list with his first offer is Dresden Tri-Valley's Nathan Strock.
"It came from Kent State last Friday," Strock said. "They just said they liked my film. They sent me their spring practice schedule, so I will probably go up there."
Kent State may be the first to offer, but they are far from the only school showing interest. This past weekend he accepted an invitation from Illinois to attend their junior day.
"It was probably the nicest school I have been to yet, so I really enjoyed it," Strock said of Illinois. "The whole area is nice, the facilities are amazing and their field is amazing.
"I talked to Coach [Alex] Golesh and the quarterbacks coach. The quarterback coach said he liked my film, but the only thing he had on me was the highlight video."
This weekend Strock plans to take in spring practices at Bowling Green and possibly Kent State and Ohio University as well. Michigan State is another school that has been in communication with the 6-4, 195-pound Strock, and he plans to visit them as well.
"I'm going to their camp, I think on June 21st or 22nd," Strock said. "They've sent little things on Facebook just saying they want to get me down for camp to watch me throw before they do anything else."
Over the last two seasons, Strock has thrown for 4,500 yards and 46 touchdowns against just eight interceptions. He has also rushed for 1,700 yards in that time span.
