Jason Forcier Commits: Forcier Scouting Report

GoBlueWolverine has confirmed with the home that San Diego quarterback <b>Jason Forcier is Wolverine commitment #12!</b><br><br> Scout.com's #10 quarterback visited Michigan this past weekend, and last night he made his life-long dream of wearing the Winged Helmet come true!<br><br> Here is Jason's <b>recruiting story</b> and GoBlueWolverine's <b>first-hand scouting report</b> on him -- our interview with him will be going up soon!<br>

Jason Forcier grew up loving the Wolverines ... his parents are from Bloomfield Hill, his dad is a big U-M fan, the whole nine yards. Michigan is his dream school -- Jason himself told us that more than once!

We at GoBlueWolverine watched Jason at length at both San Diego State and OSU Nike Camps.

Forcier is a Drew Tate-type QB, but Forcier looks more like a SS out there (build-wise we mean ... whereas Tate looked like a skinny WR at the same age).

Forcier was also at the U-M Camp for a day this summer, and had attended two other U-M camps in the past. He also attended the 2003 OSU game.

Forcier definitely gives U-M a run-pass/spread option by being on the roster, making it possible after the Henne era to go to more of a spread offense if desired.

Forcier has a best Nike 40 time of 4.57 sec. As we said he looks like a strong safety; he's 6-2 (a shade shorter than Henne) and a well-built 200-210 (almost as much of a 'build' as Henne ... he's extremely 'cut'). He made all the passes at his Nike Camps (he has a good arm in other words), and he has a good leadership presence out there, plus very good mobility/running ability.

And Jason is a great kid -- solid, a good student, a stand-up type leader. All the non-physical and 'between the ears' tools.

He has always been very solid and straight-forward to talk to, even when he wanted a U-M schollie in the spring and summer and didn't yet have one. So he can handle pressure and adversity with grace. And there's not a big ego there. GBW's opinion: Forcier is an excellent addition to the Michigan program. On the season for San Diego St. Augustine, Forcier passed for 2,915 yards and 40 touchdowns and threw just eight interceptions. With his 4.57 second 40-yard dash speed, he also rushed for 1,014 yards and rushing 16 touchdowns.

Jason spent his senior season proving he could be a passing quarterback at the college level: he spent his undergrad years starting at the storied Santa Ana Mater Dei ... but Mater Dei is a running program, and most of Forcier's yards were on the ground; by transfering to St. Aug. for his senior year, he not only moved back closer to home, but was able to quarterback a passing program and show that he had the 'passing stuff'. Show it he did -- and a U-M scholarship is his reward!
