Bears Impressed with 2010 QB

An impressive summer on the camp trail, including a strong showing at Cal's camp, has drawn increased interest for Steamboat Springs (Calif.) QB Austin Hinder…

Austin Hinder (6-5, 180) started his great camp run at the Stanford Nike Camp in May. This past spring, while attending camp at California, Bears head coach Jeff Tedford was so impressed with Hinder that he made it clear the Centennial state QB would have a scholarship waiting at Cal.

Interest continues to rise for Steamboat Springs junior quarterback as Big XII, Big 10 and SEC schools gain notice. As a sophomore, Hinder passed for 1,500 yards and 17 scores while leading his Steamboat squad to a 7-4 record. He spent much of his off-season attending camps including the Steve Clarkson quarterback academy, where he worked out USC bound Matt Barkley, the nation's top prospect.

Recently, the University of Kansas has come into to the picture and according to Hinder, "they are very interested in me." Along with the Jayhawks; Purdue, North Carolina and Vanderbilt have started the communication process.

Along with these new suitors, Colorado State, Colorado, Missouri, Texas, UCLA, Kansas State and Oregon have been in contact.

Hinder will put his skills to the test when his team opens August 29th in Wyoming against Laramie High School. Top Stories
