SoCal Quarterback One to Watch

His name hasn't been getting a lot of buzz but that should change shortly. Canyon Country (Calif.) Canyon quarterback Cade Apsay has one Pac-12 offer on the table and his film is among the best of any signal caller out west...

Cade Apsay is talented quarterback and put up big numbers as a junior. He earned 3rd team all-state underclass honors after throwing for 3,333 yards and 39 touchdowns while rushing for 341 yards and 15 more scores.

Apsay shows up very well on film and has a very nice skill set. He has good size at 6-2, 180 pounds and lightning quick release. He has great feet in the pocket, a live arm and can fit the ball in some very tight spaces.

His ability to buy time in the pocket and make big throws down the field really jumps out. He's a running threat but is just as comfortable and dangerous rolling out and finding a receiver and he's able to make throws from multiple arm angles.

On the recruiting front, Arizona was first out of the game and offered Apsay just a few weeks ago.

"It was an awesome feeling to get that offer from Arizona," Apsay said. "I was completely surprised by it, I never saw it coming. I'm talking with Coach Rodriguez, the head coach, so that's pretty cool and my dad and I plan to visit the campus next week.

"I'm also hearing from Alabama, Wyoming, Colorado, UCLA, Fresno State, UC Davis, California, Washington, Oregon State, San Diego State, New Mexico, Minnesota and San Jose State."

Apsay will be very busy over the spring and summer and will check out several schools.

"In addition to Arizona, I'm going to Colorado for their Junior Day, UCLA's QB Camp and San Diego State's camp," Apsay said. "I'm also going to the Elite 11 regional camp and NIKE Camp in Oakland in May and I'm waiting to confirm visits with Washington, Oregon State, Fresno State, New Mexico, Minnesota and a few others.

"Right now, I'm planning to go through the recruiting process and I don't think I'll make an early decision. I want to go through it a little in the fall and maybe do some official visits before making a commitment anywhere."
