Things have been kind of crazy for Kettering Alter (Ohio) quarterback Austin Boucher the past several weeks. The University of Toledo verbal commitment saw the announcement by Rockets head coach Tom Amstutz that he was resigning and then went out and did what his main goal entering the season was, win a state championship.
"It's been really crazy," said Boucher by phone. "We had the run in the playoffs winning state and now recruiting is heating up. I'm prepared for whatever comes my way."
It didn't take long for new Toledo head coach Tim Beckman to make contact with the lefty quarterback.
"Coach Beckman has already been in contact and he's going to be making a visit to school soon to lay out what his plans are for the offense and the program. Right now I'm still a Toledo commitment but other schools are starting to make contact."
Among the programs to show new interest are Georgia Tech and Iowa. But the one that has really caught Boucher's attention is Ohio State.
"Ohio State has called me and I told them to just be honest about their interest. They said they would do that and informed me they were looking at other quarterbacks but would know soon what direction they'll be heading in. If they call I'll listen to what they have to say and then look at all of my options. I think I'm to get a call from them again on Tuesday."
While interest from the Buckeyes and others has his interest, Boucher knows having a chance to play and get better also plays a role at the next level.
We'll check back with Austin Boucher in the coming week to see if any changes have come along.
