Grand Rapids (Mich.) South Christian quarterback Jon Wassink broke out as a sophomore, leading his team to the state title game and putting up big numbers. He looked to capitalize on that momentum by camping with several schools this summer.
"I went to Northwestern, Michigan, Michigan State and Western Michigan," Wassink said. "I thought Northwestern went well. I talked to a coach or two, and they said it went well. My [recruiting coach] said that I was on their list of 2015 QB's and they would be watching me.
The chance to camp with Northwestern also gave Wassink a chance to get a feel for the program and campus.
"I think they are getting a lot of new facilities in a year or two," Wassink said. "I got to preview that, and that looked pretty sweet."
Outside of the schools he has camped with, Cincinnati is another program showing early interest. Their coaching staff is looking to see Wassink throw in the near future.
"I heard that from [South Christian's athletic director] and one of our coaches who has been in contact with them," Wassink said. "I'm not sure when I am going to do that, but we'll see how that goes."
The 6-foot-1, 178-pound Wassink is coming off a sophomore season in which he threw for over 2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns, and rushed for an additional 600-700 yards. He looks to take his game to the next level in 2013.
"Last year we were pretty successful," Wassink noted. "I think I need to continue to work on my footwork, because that was lacking a little bit last year."
