Top Quarterback Receives Offer; Will Visit U-M

The quarterback recruiting situation for the University of Michigan football team turned into a priority when true-freshman Chad Henne lead the team onto the field against Miami (Ohio) on opening day this year. With the season over the staff wasted no time in offering a player they took a close look at during the summer.<BR>

Forcier is back on the board!

With the regular season complete, and Michigan preparing for the Rose Bowl, there is a little time for the staff to visit prospects whose seasons are still going. Such is the case for quarterback Jason Forcier from St. Augustine High School in San Diego, Calif. Forcier was getting a serious look from the Michigan staff over the summer. He was a Michigan camper and attended several Nike Camps. However, an offer never materialized as the Wolverines had their eyes on other targets. In the meantime, Forcier moved on as well and committed to Arizona State at the end of October.

Things have taken a turn back towards Michigan, Jason told GoBlueWolverine. "Coach Scot Loeffler was at my game Friday," Forcier said. "I received an offer from him, and I was suppose to talk to coach Carr this (Sat.) morning. I called but he wasn't available, so I'll have to try him again later."

The 6 foot 2, 205-pound Forcier said earlier Michigan was always a childhood favorite and an offer would be a dream come true. Did the four-star prospect commit? "No, I am still a soft commit to Arizona State, but they are now looking at Ben Olsen," he said. "I want to look at Michigan now that they have offered. I am probably going to visit next week with my mom and then see."

Forcier also spoke with's Andrew Friedman and said that he was told Michigan may have a quarterback transfering soon.

The season ended Friday night for the Saints and Forcier with a 35-33 loss to Brawley. St. Augustine ended the season 7-5.

GBW will have more on Forcier in the coming week.
