Gilbert (Ariz.) Perry quarterback Brock Purdy put up big numbers last year and, if his performance at the Pylon 7on7 national tournament last week was any indication, could have a busy spring evaluation period.
Arizona State, California, Colorado, San Diego State and Wyoming are some of the programs that have established contact with the 6-foot-1, 195-pound prospect early on and that should only be the start.
Purdy was clinical throughout the weekend tournament in Vegas, calling his own plays and dissecting defenses with an array of throws. He showed great touch on the deep ball, put passes only where his receivers could get them, and looked very comfortable rolling out to both sides and throwing on the run.
"I'm definitely going to Cal-Berkeley, but I'm also trying to get out to camp with NC State, Memphis and Kentucky," Purdy told. "At Cal I've talked to coach Marques Tuiasosopo, the quarterbacks coach. He's told me they're not throwing out offers a lot to quarterbacks but I'm on their recruiting list. For spring ball he's going to have their director of recruiting come out to see me in Arizona and he's going to try to get out as well."
Purdy, whose father played minor league baseball, has also heard from nearby ASU as well as Colorado.
"They've got a lot of new coaches on staff so I don't have a huge relationship there, but I've been told I'm on their radar," Purdy said. "With Colorado, they've also got a 2018 commit like Cal, but you never know."
Purdy completed 64 percent of his pass attempts for 3,333 yards and 42 touchdowns in 10 games as a junior last season. He also rushed for over 800 yards and tacked on six more scores.
