Is Nease QB a Perfect Fit for Bulls?

Ted Stachitas is a name that Bulls fans need to know. He threw for 29 touchdowns and rushed for over 1,100 yards as a junior. Right now he has flown under the radar, but he could be a big target for teams in the future. Only on -- Get it First, Get it Fast!

With the emergence of Matt Grothe it has shown the Bulls staff that they don't necessarily need to recruit what most would consider the prototypical QB. In the spread offense USF runs, a 6-foot-4 signal caller isn't always the best option. Quickness, speed and accuracy are what the Bulls are looking for.

That is why Ted Stachitas from Nease high school would make a great fit. At only 6-foot and 175 pounds Ted had a remarkable Junior year. Throwing for over 2,700 yards and 29 touchdowns. He also got it done on the ground, running for 1,177 yards and 13 touchdowns. Not only did he have a good season by the numbers, Stachitis took his team to the state final and lost to Robert Marve and Plant High School.

"My goal this year is to lead my team to an undefeated season and to win a state championship."

This dual threat quarterback has begun to reel in the offers.

"Right now I have Wake Forest, Stanford and North Western."

He said the Bulls have also shown him interest, but as of now there is no offer. Other teams that are showing interest are Duke, Uconn and Syracuse.

Recently Stachitias attended the Elite 11 camp in Atlanta with Tino Sunseri, a QB USFNation reported was offered by South Forida a few weeks ago.

"I started off a little slow and then picked it up and finished strong." Ted added, "I saw Tino out there, I thought he was a good passer, impressive."

Stachitas currently holds a 3.5 GPA and is prepping for the ACT and SAT test. His main factor in choosing a school is academics, but he also wants a program that plays his style football. USF could be that team, this is a type of player that could thrive in a option/spread offense. Much like when an undersized QB came to USF two years ago named Matt Grothe.
