One of the fastest rising quarterbacks on the west coast this season is four-star QB T.C. Ostrander (6-3, 205, 4.6) from Menlo (Calif.) Menlo-Atherton.
Ostrander is one of the feel good stories of the year. Not many recruitneks knew about the talented signal-caller, but the D-I schools did.
Oregon State was first out of the box with an offer and there has been a steady flow of offers since. Stanford, Oregon, ASU, Colorado and Kansas followed suit.
Ostrander was selected all-league after throwing for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns.
A great athlete, Ostrander is dual threat. He can hurt you with his arm and his feet.
The scouting report on Ostrander is he has a strong arm and terrific footwork. His mechanics are superb, which is to be expected. Ostrander has been working with quarterback coach supreme Roger Theder and like most that work with Theder, Ostrander is very polished.
Another thing that scouts like about Ostrander is he is poised and is excellent in the huddle.
Ostrander has had a busy summer camping and refining his skills at camps at Stanford, USC, Cal, UVA, Colorado and the very prestigious Elite 11 camp.
“I had a lot of fun at the Elite 11 camp,” Ostrander said. “It was one of the best experiences I’ve had. I learned a lot.”
“The camp gave me the opportunity to see players that I will play against over the next four years.”
What does Ostrander want in a school?
“I want a good combination of academics and athletics,” Ostrander said. “I want to be part of a strong football program.”
“A good living environment is also very important for me.”
There have been rumblings that a decision could be imminent but others say that Ostrander is just narrowing down his choices.
Ostrander let Pac10Recruiting know that it is pretty much down to for schools and they are Stanford, ASU, Oregon and Colorado.
Pac10Recruiting will be on top of the situation and will keep you informed.
