Despite an early verbal offer from Boston College, one of the top quarterback prospects in the Northeast is keeping his options open.
To be clear, Boston College is in a good position with Monroe (Conn.) Masuk quarterback Casey Cochran. After all, in the words of Cochran, "They're the ones that have offered."
Cochran is trying to keep an open mind, however, and wants to listen to what other schools have to say.
"I've already visited UConn and Rutgers for their junior days," Cochran said. "I'm scheduled to go to Virginia, Duke, Penn State and Princeton.
"The trips to UConn and Rutgers went very well. I was very impressed by the facilities at both places. It was good to see both coaching staffs. It's always good to get that personal touch."
Cochran, a 6-foot-1, 227-pound drop back passer, said he feels most comfortable in a pro-style offense though he does have some experience running the spread.
Boston College has shown a lot of interest in Cochran throughout the process and the coaches have to be hoping that pays off.
"They offered me in late February of my sophomore year," he recalled. "I've been up there numerous times. I went to spring practices, their junior day last year and their camp."
