Paul Corsaro Update

The state of Indiana has three quarterback prospects that all show promise to be the best prospect at the position in the Hoosier state.

Columbus East's Drew Kiel, Fort Wayne Harding's Devin Dominigues, and Indianapolis Roncalli's Paul Corsaro all are receiving strong division one interest. In the case of Corsaro, he could see his first offer come here in the next month or two. "Pretty much, all of the Big Ten is showing me interest," Corsaro said. "I'd say the schools that are recruiting me the hardest right now, though, are Vanderbilt, Nebraska, Iowa, Purdue, and Illinois."

"I'm making an unofficial visit to Vanderbilt this Friday. I'm going to watch Jay Cutler workout, which should be really neat."

"I just spoke to Coach (Kevin) Cosgrove from Nebraska today. He told me that both Coach (Bill) Callahan and he had the chance to review my film, and were excited. He said he will talk with Coach Callahan next week, and send me a text message when to call him."

"I've spoke to Coach (Eric) Johnson from Iowa quite a bit, and he told me he wouldn't be wasting his time talking to me if I wasn't a guy he was interested in. He said I'm one of their top prospects, and a guy he hopes to see in different camps/combines this spring and summer."

"Purdue is the only school I've visited, thus far, and I receive a lot of text messages from Coach (Mark) Hagan. One of my good buddies, Jason Warner, plays outside linebacker there. They said they will continue to evaluate me." "Coach (Curt) Mallory from Illinois also sends me a lot of text messages, and has asked me to take a visit there."

After Vanderbilt, Corsaro says more vists will be taken later this spring. "I need to sit down with my father to develop a schedule, but I definitely want to get out to visit some of these other schools," said Corsaro, who averaged 18.0 ppg in basketball this season.

Holding a 4.0 GPA, Corsaro has the intellect you look for in a quarterback prospect. You also can't argue with the numbers. In 15 games last season, in which Roncalli lost in the state championship by one point, Corsaro threw for 1572 yards, 18 touchdowns, and five interceptions in completing 102 of 161 pass attempts.

His cousin, Pat Kunze, plays for the Notre Dame Fightin' Irish. His father, Greg, played at Indiana State. Certainly, he has some good bloodlines, as well.

"Right now, I'm just waiting out to see what options I will have. I'd like to be able to wait this process out, and make a decision sometime after my senior season," Corsaro concluded.
