Sleeper QB in Alabama

It's a seller's market for quarterbacks in the deep south this year after a Class of 2004 that was loaded with signal callers. A player that could get a look this year after missing most of the 2003 season is Southside Gadsden's <b>Mitch Kloskowski</b>.

At 6-3 and 200 pounds, Mitch Klosowski has good mobility even after coming off of a knee injury that shortened his season to just two games. In those two games, Kloskowski managed to throw for 300 yards and rushed for 70 on the season. He is an excellent student with a 3.7 GPA and has already recorded a 22 on the ACT. Who are some of the schools that is showing interest in Kloskowski early?

"UAB, Samford, NC State, Auburn, and Memphis came by the school during the spring," said Kloskowski. "I grew up an Alabama fan, and I went to about three or four of their home games last year. I also went to see a Jacksonville State game and UAB vs. Tulane. NC State is probably sending me the most mail right now."

It's not surprising that Kloskowski doesn't have any offers yet since he missed most of the 2003 season, but he will be a player to keep an eye on during the camp season and during the 2004 football season. There is a shortage of quarterbacks this year, and a fully qualified, fully healthy Kloskowski could play his way into a scholarship offer this year.
