The top player at Saturday's MSL/TheInsiders Combine held at Memorial Stadium on the campus of the University of California in Berkeley is a quarterback out of Stockton, Calif. who has been contacted by Michigan, as well as other big time programs. He reports an offer from Nebraska.
Quarterback William Tuitama
from St. Mary's High School in Stockton, Calif was far and away the top player at Saturday's MSL/TheInsiders Combine in Berkeley.
Tuitama reports a scholarship offer from Nebraska and is receiving interest from USC, Colorado, Oregon, Fresno State, Arizona, Arizona State and others. For his junior year he was 64-93 for 1,300 yards. He reports 11 touchdowns and two interceptions. William was an honorable mention all-league selection.
While Michigan seems to have been interested early, he hasn't heard much from the Wolverines lately. "I was getting mail from them for a while," he said. "But I haven't heard from them in a while. My top schools right now are Nebraska and USC."
The St. Mary's lead man is under the tutelage of Roger Theder, the former Cal head coach who now instructs some of the nations top quarterback prospects. He has worked with Miami's Kyle Wright
, Arizona State's Sam Keller
, and UCLA's Drew Olson
. The 6 foot 3, 215 pound signal caller has a rocket arm and can run. While he didn't test at the combine, he does report a 4.85 second 40. He has the ability to fire a shot as well as lay-off if a little touch is needed. He was accurate in either situation. "I would have to say that Willie and Kyle (Reed) are the top two QB's here," Theder said. "Though Willie is probably the better of the two, both are very good."
Tuitama will attend next weekend Nike Camp at Stanford as well as camps at Arizona and Arizona State. He has already camped at Fresno State and was at the one day USC Skills camp. He also plans on participatiin in the Elite 11 clinics in Las Vegas and Berkeley.
Tuitama reports a 2.9 core GPA and scored an 840 on his SAT.
