'Cats Interested In Florida Quarterback

Coming off a great performance at the Badger Sports 7 on 7 in Tampa, Florida, it's no surprise that Kedric Bostic's stock is on the rise. Now, Northwestern is one of many schools who are hoping to learn more about the Florida quarterback.

The 6'3, 190-lb quarterback led his team to a 4-0 record, which earned them the top-seed in the entire tournament. However, their run came to an end with a double-overtime loss in the quarterfinals. Regardless, Kedric Bostic turned some heads with his performance.

"I was feeling good," said Bostic. "I was confident going into it, and I felt like I was definitely the top quarterback there."

Thus far, Bostic has received interest from Northwestern, along with Kansas, Central Florida, Princeton, Harvard, and others.

It's no surprise that Bostic—who carries a 4.2 GPA—is very interested in finding a school with great academic prestige.

In the past weeks, Bostic has been in touch with Northwestern assistant coach Marty Long, who is in charge of recruiting Bostic's area. In their talks, Coach Long has told Bostic of Northwestern's high academic prestige, which has the quarterback very interested in the Wildcats.

"I like the school a lot," Bostic said. "I like that it's a good academic school, and talking to Coach (Marty) Long, he seems like as great guy a great coach. I'm very interested in it, and I would definitely be interested in attending Northwestern."

Originally, Bostic had only sent Northwestern a copy of his highlight film. The NU coaches wanted to see more, so they recently requested copies of film from three games. Bostic complied, and last week, sent in the film. Now, he plans to follow-up with Coach Long tomorrow.

Bostic believes that Northwestern is very interested in him, and is hoping to learn more about what the Wildcats have to offer. He plans to make the long trip up to Evanston over the summer, and also hopes to prove himself to the coaches at a Northwestern summer camp.

"I would love to visit them," said Bostic. "I was talking to Coach Long about going up there in the summer and going to one of their camps. They want me to throw in front of them. I definitely want to go up there to one of their camps."

As a junior, Bostic finished with a 68% completion percentage, while throwing for 1,595 yards, 19 touchdowns, and just three interceptions. He also was a threat on the ground, rushing for 424 yards and four touchdowns. His Jupiter Christian High School team finished with an 11-2 record in 2010
