QB Becomes Commit #2

Carthage QB Blake Bogenschutz left the UTSA football camp in Grand Prairie today without an offer. A few hours later, he called Head Coach Larry Coker and became the 2nd commit to the 2014 recruiting class.

After spending the day working with various UTSA coaches at the Grand Prairie football camp, Carthage quarterback Blake Bogenschutz headed home. Although there was plenty of interest from staff, he did not receive an offer on the spot.

On his drive home, Bogenschutz spoke with UTSA Offensive Coordinator Kevin Brown. It was during this conversation when an offer was extended. The two discussed the UTSA offensive schemes and set up a call with Coach Coker later in the evening.

At 7pm on Friday evening, Bogenschutz made the call to Coach Coker. It was at the end of the conversation when he made Coker aware of his decision.

"I committed to Coach Coker tonight," Bogenschutz said. "I'm on cloud nine."

After returning home and discussing the situation with his parents, Bogenschutz knew he had to make a decision because he understood that UTSA had offered other players at his position.

"I just thought it was the best opportunity for me," said Bogenshutz. "UTSA has some offers out to some other quarterbacks. I didn't want to miss out on the opportunity."

Carthage measured in at today's camp at 6'0" and 180 lbs. More of a pocket passer in Carthage's pro-style offense, Bogenschutz doesn't mind being mobile. With a 4.6-40 time, Bogenschutz is mobile enough to fit into UTSA's scheme in an Eric Soza-like manner.

"I love to run the ball, I'm not afraid," said Bogenschutz. "I really liked all the UTSA coaches. I'm really excited about how they run things and the offense."

On the field, he prides himself as being a leader. Off the field, he prides himself on being an excellent student as he holds the highest GPA in his class at Carthage.

"I try to lead my team as best I can. I try to out-smart the defense. I work well in the scheme and just always try my best," said Bogenschutz.

UTSA was Bogenschutz's first division offer. North Texas, Memphis, and Louisana Tech also showed interest. However, he was born in San Antonio and appears to be a solid commit to UTSA.

"I love the area. My mom visits there often. I'll be down there in July for the camp," said Bogenschutz.

In 2011 he passed for 2,696 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 10 intecerptions. In 2012 he passed for 2,870 yards, 38 touchdowns and, 9 interceptions.
