One of the most underrated quarterback prospects is Jason Forcier (6-2, 205, 4.55) from San Diego (Calif.) Saint Augustine. Through Forcier’s hard work and globe trotting ways the word is getting out on his skills. Last time we talked to Forcier he has two offers; he is now up to eight.
Forcier’s first two offers came from Wisconsin and UTEP. Now the Badgers and Miners are joined by Colorado, Illinois, Ball State, Wyoming, Utah and UCLA.
There are other schools involved in the fray but haven’t offered yet. Many are waiting for senior tape.
Forcier has been incredibly busy this spring and summer and took his skills on the road.
Besides attending both NIKE Camps in California and the adidas camp held in Westwood, he took in camps at Michigan, Michigan State, Illinois, Ohio State and Notre Dame. He also did the UCLA and USC one day camps.
Though Forcier has an impressive list of offers he will also bide his time because he is waiting to see what some of the other quarterbacks in the area will do and what other schools will offer.
“I’m not rushing to make a decision,” Forcier said. “I will probably take a couple of official visits first.”
“I would like to visit one or two of the Big 10 schools,” Forcier said. “I kind of include Notre Dame as part of my Big 10 schools.”
“I’m keeping my options open,” Forcier said. “I’m beginning to talk to a lot of schools in the SEC and ACC.”
“One of the reasons I’m now waiting is because I’m now at a passing school,” Forcier said. “I want schools to see me in a passing system and as long as I’m successful, I will get more offers.”
The reason for the transfer is his parents own a business in San Diego and Forcier wants to spend more time with his family.
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.
As a junior, 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 is 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.
