Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas three-star quarterback John O'Korn began the spring season the same way he ended it, with just three offers - Central Florida, North Carolina, and South Florida. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound signal-caller understands why it is a stressful and difficult process for quarterbacks.
"I expected more but at the same time that is the way it goes at quarterback," O'Korn said of the spring. "It is different for a quarterback because they want to see you throw in-person and then they want you to come to their camp and work with them one-on-one. So I am not really that surprised. A lot of schools are still trying to get me to their camp this summer and work with me before they offer."
The South Florida product is wasting no time in hitting the road and camping. He made his way to Alabama this past weekend.
"I had a really good experience there," O'Korn said. "I liked getting back there. I liked it just as much as I did the first time. It was great to get to work with Coach (Doug) Nussmeier and the coaches there. It was great to compete against some of the other prospects. It felt good to get out there and get work in."
The Crimson Tide have yet to offer, but continue to evaluate O'Korn as a possibility to join Salt Lake City (Utah) Cottonwood Senior four-star quarterback Cooper Bateman in their 2013 class.
"Right now they want to get through the rest of camp, there were a few more days of camp, and then they were going to get a hold of me after they meet after this camp and let me know where things stand," O'Korn said. "I guess we will just take it from there."
O'Korn plans to hit a number of other camps.
"I am going to try to hit all the Florida schools and maybe get up to Wisconsin," O'Korn said of his summer plans.
Bret Bielema's Wisconsin Badgers have been the most active out-of-state school with O'Korn over the past few months.
"Wisconsin has been talking to me for a while," O'Korn said. "Since I have been down here I have been talking to Coach (Charlie) Partridge and Coach (Matt) Canada has been in contact as well," O'Korn said. "They want to get me up as soon as they can and just get to know me better. They were pretty impressed with how I threw this spring and they just want to get to know me better as a person before they offer me."
Other camp possibilities include Houston and Tennessee.
As for making a decision, O'Korn is going to handle the process as it goes.
"I really don't have a timeframe, I am just waiting to see what offers come in and if the right one comes through then I won't hesitate to jump on it," O'Korn said. "I am not in a rush at all either though."
At this stage, he is wide open to any and all interested colleges.
"I don't have a leader," O'Korn said. "I am still pretty open right now."
