Bryan Harsin is known for his ability to develop Division 1 quarterbacks.

Harsin and his coaching staff had two different signal callers in on official visitors this past weekend and appears to have made a good impression on one California quarterback.

Cameron Birse, a Maryland native that has completed his high school football playing career in California, enjoyed the Southern Hospitality that he was shown this weekend in Jonesboro.

AStateNation.com caught up with Birse after he completed his visit to Arkansas State.

"I was pleasantly surprised," Birse said. "They have a great coaching staff, a great campus and the backing of the community is really positive."

Birse was equally impressed with Harsin and the coaching staff he has assembled.

"Harsin is a great coach," Birse said. "He is very focused, he knows what he wants and knows how to get it. I really like Coach Hamdan the quarterback coach."

Birse got the opportunity to spend some time with the current Red Wolves and impressed with their closeness.

"The band of brothers type of family feel here is very impressive," Birse said. "As a player here you have every opportunity to be successful and win Bowl games and be one of the best smaller schools in the country."

Birse is familiar with Harsin's offensive philosophy.

"We run the same type of offense at my high school," Birse said. "It would be a great opportunity for me, for sure."

So far Birse has not received an official offer from Arkansas State but is hoping for one.

"It would be awesome," Birse said. "Hopefully I will get that call."
