Gnacinski Looking for First Offer

Jacob Gnacinski doesn't have an offer yet but a few schools have taken notice of him. The 2014 QB says he would love to play the same position in college but he's open to anything if it means getting on the field at the next level.

At 6'2" and 225 pounds, Keller Fossil Ridge QB, Jacob Gnacinski sticks out on the football field. Now, the Panther signal caller is hoping that his leadership on the field earns him a scholarship offer or two. caught up with the 2014 prospect to get his take on spring practice and on the recent recruiting interest he's been drawing.

"Spring has been tough so far because a lot of our starting o-line is out so it's been a lot of freshmen playing" said Gnacinski. "We've had to really guide them through to keep the tempo where we need it to be with our offense."

Despite the lack of continuity on the offensive line this spring, Gnacinski is excited about the offense weapons he has to work with. One of the team's goals is to put pressure on their opponents by scoring early and often.

"I just really want to work on scoring every time we have the ball in the red zone" he said. "I want to keep the tempo up and have a good connection and relationship with my football team."

Although the Panther gunslinger has yet to receive an offer, he says he's getting consistent interest from a few programs.

"Yes sir, I'm hearing from Rice, Kansas State and San Diego State the most right now" said Gnacinksi. "As far as schools I want to hear from, TCU is at the top."

"All the schools are recruiting me as a quarterback except for TCU" he said. "They're looking at me as a linebacker but I have to run at least a 4.6 at their camp for them to consider me."

With TCU slated to hold camps over the summer, when does Gnacinski plan on attending?

"I know their first camp is in June but I'm not sure exactly what day" said the Fossil Ridge product. "I plan on going to that one though."

Recruiting aside, Gnacinski says he really wants to lead his team to the playoffs and make some noise in 2013.

"I just want to get in to the playoffs and then anything can happen" he said. "I want us to do our best and I think we can because we have a better connection this year than we did last year."

With obvious physical ability, Gnacinski certainly looks the part of a D-1 player. Now it's just a matter of which school will offer first. Stay logged on to for the latest.
