PA QB Pledges to Red Hawks

The recruitment of quarterback Bryan Schor was not one with a lot of activity. But he decided early on during his senior season that his only offer would be the only one he needs. Schor made his commitment to Miami (OH) and spoke to FOXSportsNEXT about his choice.

Bryan Schor had a solid performance at an Elite 11 camp over the summer. While it did not result in numerous offers as he had hoped, it did lead to an offer from Miami (OH). Shortly into his senior season, he decided that offer was all he needed.

"I had interest from a couple of schools," the Milford (PA) product explained. "Miami of Ohio was my only offer. I committed at the beginning of the football season this year. I'm pretty solid to Miami. I waited until after my first three games.

"I threw 10 touchdowns and no interceptions with about 800 yards. So after I didn't get any more offers, then I kind of figured they weren't going to come. But I've really felt sure about Miami when I revisited in late June. So I'm not sure other offers would have mattered too much."

Several factors led Schor to feeling comfortable with Miami. The biggest one was his comfort level with the coaching staff. He is excited to get to campus and start his career.

"I fell in love with the campus when I saw it," the 6-foot-2 quarterback said. "It really seemed like my type of people when I got there. And then I really liked the coaching staff. They were very honest with me after the camp I had and told me exactly where I was on their recruiting board.

"Coach (John) Klacik was my recruiter. He knew my QB coach from going to Lockhaven. The staff made me feel very welcomed at Miami. I knew I was going to really enjoy the coaching staff when I met coach (Mike) Bath and coach (Don) Treadwell. I really liked them as people, not just coaches."

Now Schor has to focus on getting read for competition at the division one level. He understands he has work to do and that it will be a lot more challenging than high school.

"Coach Bath, the QB coach, has told me when I get there it is going to be an open competition for the spot," Schor recalled. "So I'm excited to get out there and compete. I want to get myself into the starting position as soon as possible. Then reset my goals once I'm in that spot. At this point, I'm most looking forward to the chance to compete with another person for the starting spot. That's not something I had to fight too hard for in high school and I'm excited to get the chance to battle everyday with other great quarterbacks.

"I'm going to work on my physical development. I want to be very good at reading defenses when I get there. In high school, my ability to read a defense helped me out a lot. But by the time I'm in at Miami, I want to be much better than I am now."
