When you knock out the numbers that Darius Banks (6-2, 180, 4.5) from Culver City, Calif., high school did his junior season it is a good bet that you will attract plenty of suitors from D-I schools.
Banks was one of the many who showed up to the NIKE Camp on Sunday, but he didn't participate because he just returned from vacation. He is planning on heading up to Palo Alto next month.
As junior Banks was among the nation's best statistically. He threw for 4,115 yards hitting on 67 percent of his passes and 51 touchdowns. He also had 169 rushing yards and three touchdowns.
Oregon, Kansas State, Toledo and UConn have all offered Banks a scholarship.
At one time it was thought that the Oregon Ducks were going to get a commitment out of Banks and they still may but at this moment a college decision may not be made until June or July.
The Ducks still seem to be the favorite.
"I like Oregon's offense," Banks said. "They run the spread offense and that's what we run at Culver City."
"I also like Oregon's facilities, their program and their uniforms. I may go visit Oregon later this month.
"I'm going to wait a month or two or maybe more before I make my decision."
Kansas State in another school that has a chance at landing Banks.
"At K-State they let the quarterback run the offense and I like that," Banks said. "I don't really know much more about the school.
"Nebraska and UCLA have been showing a lot of interest in me. I'm also getting a lot of letters from a lot of schools."
Arizona, Michigan, Michigan State, Alabama, LSU, Florida, Florida State and San Diego State are just a sampling of the schools contacting him and showing interest.
