Dublin (Ohio) Coffman quarterback Zack Stoudt has done everything he can to help put his name on the recruiting map. He recently attended both the Elite Skills Camp in Cleveland and the NIKE Training Camp at Purdue University.
The 6-foot-5, 215-pounder said he felt good after both camps and hopes now the recruiting attention will pick up.
Stoudt, the son of former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Cliff Stoudt, landed his first offer just a week ago when Gardner-Webb pulled the trigger. But he has bigger schools in mind and most are getting a good chance to see him this spring for the first time after an injury slowed him down in his junior season.
"I'm hearing the most from Michigan State, Indiana, Miami University, Alabama, Tennessee and Louisville," he said. "But I'd say Alabama, Tennessee, and Ohio State."
Stoudt said he doesn't mind going near or far to play football. He just wants a shot to compete.
"I don't think location will be much of a factor," he said. "Just wherever I have the best opportunity to play and be successful will be important to me. I mean I don't want to go to like Hawaii, though."
Dublin Coffman is expecting a big season and so is Stoudt.
"We've got a good team coming back, so I'd like to go undefeated, win state and beat Davidson," he said. "Hopefully I will have a successful season and I can choose where I go to college and that would be nice."
Stoudt has been working hard this spring and said he's focused on a few things that would help him be a better quarterback.
"My quickness and speed can always use improvement," he said. "I've got a strong arm. It would be nice to knock a few tenths off my 40 time. My arm strength is probably my biggest asset, and I've also got good vision and knowledge of the game."
"I was goofing around one day after practice with another player and I threw it 81 yards. I was pretty loose though. I have witnesses if you need some."
