One of the best dual threat quarterback that was roaming the fields of southern California last season has been a hard man to find this spring. Last fall Jason Forcier (6-2, 205, 4.55) was calling signals for Orange County powerhouse Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei. He has since transferred to San Diego (Calif.) Saint Augustine.
The reason for the transfer is his parents own a business in San Diego and Forcier wants to spend more time with his family.
Forcier was selected all-state, all-league and was his League’s Offensive MVP. That he was the MVP as a junior is impressive indeed. The league that Forcier competed in one of, if not, the toughest league in all of Southern California.
Forcier rushed for 801 yards and scored eight touchdowns on the ground while averaging 6.07 yards per carry. He passed for 1,370 yards and threw for 10 touchdowns while hitting on 54% of his passes.
Michigan, Wisconsin, LSU, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Washington State and USC are corresponding with Forcier and the interest is mutual on both sides.
The scouting report on Forcier is he has all the intangibles you love in quarterback. He especially excels as a leader and he isn’t afraid of taking risks.
Forcier learns from his mistakes and doesn’t dwell on them. He knows he may have to pull the trigger in a tough situation and there is nothing worse for the psyche of a quarterback than doubt and fear.
You will never have to worry about a lack of confidence from Forcier. He knows the game and has a great feel for the game.
What is Forcier looking for in a school?
“Obviously academics will be a consideration,” Forcier said. “My parents own business, so a school with a good business marketing or communications program will be something I’m looking at.”
