Five programs have already offered pro-style quarterback Christian Suntrup and now the St. Louis (Mo.) Chaminade recruit is hearing from two schools out west as he continues to figure out which situation is best for him.
Suntrup, who measured in at 6-foot-2 ¾ and 205 pounds at the recent Rivals.com Five-Star Academy at the University of Missouri, said Boise State and Arizona have recently picked up interest. Neither program has offered yet but he has talked with coaches from each school.
"(Boise State) kind of came out of nowhere with some mail and I just started talking to them," Suntrup said. "I have followed them and I like them and I got to talk with coach (Bryan) Harsin, their offensive coordinator, so that's something I'm looking into learning more about."

Quarterbacks coach Frank Scelfo and co-offensive coordinator Bill Bedenbaugh have been in touch from Arizona and Suntrup said he's definitely interested in talking more with the Wildcats' coaches. No visits have been set up to either new school showing interest.
"I've talked with coach Scelfo and coach Bedenbaugh a lot over the phone and they seem pretty excited and I do too about Arizona," Suntrup said. "With all of them, we just have to see how it goes to see if they offer."
Boston College, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska and Stanford have already offered Suntrup, who completed 98 of 181 passes for 1,338 yards and 11 touchdowns during his junior season.
He had 1,362 yards and nine scores as a sophomore and threw five touchdown passes in his freshman campaign.
Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Tennessee and Wisconsin are some others showing interest in Suntrup, who said he'll be visiting Boston College for its spring game later this month.
