Cali QB has OSU camp plans

OREGON STATE's SUMMER YOUTH CAMP is slated for June 20-23. And Harbor City, Calif. Narbonne signal caller's Josh Moten's plans include a stop in Corvallis where he's hoping to land a black and orange scholarship offer. Some schools are talking to him about playing a different position but he likes being under center, and Oregon State extended the invite to see him throw the pigskin.

Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne quarterback Josh Moten (6-1, 182), is arguably the top quarterback returning in the City Section this fall, and Moten's hoping the attention given to a top passer will continue to muster him some offers.

The versatile, athletic Moten said that some schools like him as an athlete, but he only has eyes to play quarterback.

"A lot of schools just want me to come to their camp and throw," said Moten. "Arizona and Oregon State, I talked to them, and they want me to show up at their camps and throw. So I'm going to show up at both of those camps."

One school already threw their name in the ring, when San Jose State offered.

"I was really relieved because I was hoping that one would come soon," said Moten. "And they definitely want me as a quarterback."

Moten said besides OSU, San Jose State and Arizona, he has interest in a handful of other schools.

"I like Arizona State and I really like Oregon, I think I'd fit in that program. I like Michigan State, for some reason, I've always been really interested in Michigan State," said Moten. "So I'm hoping to hear from more schools."

Barring a positional change in college, Moten is set on playing quarterback, but that wont stop him from hoping to play some defense this fall for the Gauchos.

"I want to play some safety this year," said Moten. "But not in college."

Moten said he wasn't in a rush to make a decision on where he'd play his college football, but if the right opportunity presented itself, that would be the likely recipient of his commitment.

"I want to discuss it with my dad and see what all of my options are," said Moten.

Moten is coming off a strong junior year in which he threw for 2,127 yards and 21 touchdown passes and ran for 839 yards and 10 touchdowns.

He's attended the Stanford Nike Camp and also the Badger/New Level Pass Camp, where he helped lead CaliTwo to the championship with a 9-0 record on the day.

Last weekend, he had a strong performance at the UnderArmour/Scout.com Combine, throwing very well and also testing well.

Academically, Moten has a 3.0 GPA and scored an 1165 on the SAT. He'll take it again on June 7.
