Spring Recruiting Primer: Quarterbacks

Spring recruiting is just taking off. BeaverBlitz breaks down the prospects to keep you eye on, both with offers now and ones who could see an offer in the future.

Spring evaluation period begins on April 15 and runs through May.  This is a chance for the coaches to hit the road and watch prospects perform on the field, both with their high school teammates and at camps and combines held throughout the country.  With the Beavers own spring practice in the books, the staff is able to be completely organized when they hit the road.  

Over this week, we will be listing the players with early offers and those to watch who could see their Oregon State interest increase.  First up, the Quarterbacks.

Quarterback will be an important position this cycle as it is imperative that the Beavers land one top level quarterback and possibly a second with Garretson being a senior and Luton and McMaryion being a junior.  Several of the Beavers top offerees have already committed including Colson Yankoff (Washington), Jack Tuttle (Utah) and Adrian Martinez (Cal).

CURRENT QUARTERBACKS:

SENIOR JUNIOR SOPHOMORE RS FRESH. FRESHMAN
Garretson Luton Moran Willard
McMaryion

CURRENT OFFERS:

Offers: ASU, Boise St., Colorado St., Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa State, Kansas, Ole Miss, Nevada, Oregon State, Tennessee, Utah State, Washington St.

BeaverBlitz Notes: Oregon State offered Camm early, before his junior season and he and McGiven have established a solid relationship.  He has also seen his recruitment explode in recent months with Tennessee and Ole Miss jumping in the mix.  Washington State is also pressing hard for Cooper, who will be hitting the road in April to unofficially visit a handful of schools. #1 QB on the BeaverBlitz board right now.

Offers: ASU, Fresno, Oregon State, Tennessee, Utah, Washington

BeaverBlitz Notes:  ASU could hold the lead for White as his brother Brady is currently a redshirt freshman with the Sun Devils. WSU is also a school that stands out to White with their pass first approach.

Offers: Eastern Washington, Idaho, Oregon State

BeaverBlitz Notes: Comstock's recruitment has been a little slow, but it has given him a good chance to learn about the Beavers. He has already unofficially visited during the season for the WSU game and loved the environment.  He could see his offers rise with a strong spring.

Offers: Alabama, Boise St., BYU, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Houston, Louisville, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon State, Purdue, UCLA, Utah, Virginia Tech.

BeaverBlitz Notes: McKee is planning to utilize his spring break to check out several programs in the SEC and ACC,  At this point in time, the Beavers would have to be considered a longshot.

PROSPECTS TO WATCH:

http://www.scout.com/player/210308-zachary-wilson?s=182

Offers: Fresno St

BeaverBlitz Notes: Wilson is an interesting prospect with a solid arm.  He would definitely need to add weight (currently listed at 170) to play in the PAC 12, and is more of a pro-style quarterback instead of a dual-threat, which Andersen has used in the past.

http://www.scout.com/player/197455-jack-alexander?s=182

Offers: Idaho

BeaverBlitz Notes: Qualifying will not be an issue for Alexander, who just wrapped up a tour of Ivy League schools this past week.  He has a strong arm and can move outside the pocket.

http://www.scout.com/player/207954-conor-bardue?s=182

Offers: none

BeaverBlitz Notes: A lot of schools are watching the three-star Lake Stevens, Washington prospect, but none have pulled the trigger.  He has decent size, but 6-foot-1 isn't ideal.  A strong spring could help him land some offers.
