Back early in the recruiting season quarterback David Potts (6-3, 190, 4.7) from Monrovia, Calif., impressed onlookers at the NIKE Camp held in Los Angeles back in April with one of the best performances at the camp.
What made his performance even more impressive is there were a lot of quality quarterbacks at the camp and Potts more than held his own.
Though Potts doesn't have any offer as of yet, he is being looked at by many west coast schools.
"Washington, Arizona, Colorado and Utah are recruiting me the hardest," Potts said. "I'm also hearing from Arizona State and Nevada."
The reason that Potts doesn't have any offers yet is because D-I schools are waiting on senior tape.
The NIKE Camp in Los Angeles isn't the only camp that Potts shined at. He also made believers at the Beyond 2000 Elite Camp and Cal's full contact camp.
"Cal was very impressed with me," Potts said. "They made me their senior MVP quarterback of their camp."
Potts also made a convert out of Henry Bell, the facilitator of the Beyond 2000 camp.
"David was another from our camp who I think is big time," Bell said. "He has a strong arm and reads defenses really well.
"David is smart and makes quick decisions. He has a lot of upside."
What is Potts looking for in a college?
"I want to go to a school with a good community," Potts said. "It will also be important that the coaches and players get along.
"I will also look into the graduation rate of the football players. Academics will be a very important part of my decision.
In an earlier interview with Monrovia Coach Steve Garrison, he had the following to say about his talented signal caller.
"Everyone knows that David has a strong arm," Garrison said. "But now he is refining his game and is also throwing with finesse."
"I think David understands the game much better now. He is beginning to read defenses better and is now dropping the ball off to his second and third read.
"We have seen a more confident quarterback in both setting his feet throwing the ball and in his running. We expect him to have a big senior season."
As a junior, Potts was selected League Back of the Year as a junior after throwing for 1,475 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also rushed for 253 yards out of the spread offense.
