Loftus Gets First Offer

Kennewick (Wash.) wide receiver Drew Loftus talks recruiting and his first offer…

Kennewick (Wash.) prospect Drew Loftus made a name for himself playing wide receiver, leading the conference in yards last year. But, when Kennewick graduated their quarterback, the coaches decided to put him behind center.

"I actually feel really comfortable; the last two years I have gotten reps in practice as the backup quarterback. So it hasn't been too hard to switch over," said Loftus. "I also played wildcat quarterback for us last year and played quarterback growing up."

While he has made the transition look easy, ranking third in the conference rushing and fourth passing, there were still some tough adjustments.

"Probably the hardest adjustment is that when I have played quarterback before you didn't really have to read the defense," said Loftus. "That was the hardest thing to get used to."

Loftus received some good news early this year, in the form of his first offer.

"New Mexico State offered," said Loftus. "They sent me some stuff and I talked with the head coach as well."

Loftus doesn't have plans for any visits yet and will probably wait until after the season before he makes any decisions.

"Right now I am planning on just waiting to see what other offers might come in before I make my decision."

Loftus is hearing from most of the schools in the Northwest and hopes to see an offer from one of them soon.

"The other schools that I get information from and talk to are Washington, Washington State, and Idaho."
