Vercher looking for opportunity

Jihad Vercher continues to perform well at camps and 7on7 tournaments but the Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian quarterback has not seen the offers pouring in yet.
Iowa State, Minnesota and Bowling Green are three new schools involved with the 6-foot, 202-pound prospect and he's hoping to receive more attention through the summer.
"It's frustrating sometimes but I love football so I'm going to keep going until it works out for me," Vercher said.

"I'm trying to stay patient and stay positive about everything. It's not working out early but hopefully I'll get something.
"It's been pretty positive and out there. The schools are coming but now it's just a question of who's going to pull the trigger."
Vercher, one of the top quarterbacks this past weekend at the Southern Cal Rivals.com Showcase Powered by FBU Select, was expected to work out at San Diego State on Sunday.
There are also preliminary plans to go to Oregon and BYU this summer. Northern Arizona is his only offer.
"I'm just looking for any opportunity," Vercher said.
In his junior season, Vercher threw for 3,281 yards with 38 touchdowns and eight interceptions and he also rushed for 302 yards and 11 scores. He helped lead Salesian to 10 wins.
