Apsay Has Two Leaders -- For Now

The 6-2 quarterback prospect from Canyon Country Canyon, Cade Apsay, has two Pac-12 schools leading for him at this time, but things could change...

Canyon Country (Calif.) Canyon 2014 quarterback Cade Apsay, with just one scholarship offer, has been talking like he might commit soon, but that could be changing.

Apsay looked good at the San Francisco Elite 11 last month, and is participating in the Oregon Nike Camp as one of six finalists for the last two spots for the Elite 11 Finals. That's a signficant boost in his general reputation, and it could pay off in recruiting.

To date, Apsay has just one scholarship offer, from Arizona, and because of that the Wildcats are doing well with him.

He visited Arizona for their camp recently and told WildcatAuthority.com: "The visit was a lot of fun. I didn't tour the campus, but I got a lot of work on the field with the coaches. They feel I bring some of the things they're looking for in a quarterback."

The 6-2, 195-pound prospect also has been getting serious interest from Colorado, even though the Buffs haven't offered.

"Right now the two schools that stick out the most are Arizona and Colorado," Apsay said. "There are some other schools that I'm thinking about as well, but those are the two main ones. They're both on the west coast and they have new coaching staffs that are really trying to put their school on the map."

Apsay also has visited Colorado. He told Scout.com's Greg Biggins:

"Colorado was great, too, a lot different than Arizona in terms of the campus and overall atmosphere. The coaches want to visit me and watch me throw before they offer but they sound very interested for sure and hopefully they offer as well."

In terms of UCLA, the recent developments of Kyle Allen committing to Texas A&M has made the Bruins look elsewhere, and they've started to recruit Apsay. UCLA has been talking with Apsay this week, and the plan is for him to participate in UCLA's Elite Camp June 22nd.

He also has plans to camp with Oregon State and Washington over the summer.

UCLA, though, would have to be intriguing for Apsay, who comes from a UCLA family (hence the first name).

Apsay had indicated that he'd like to decide soon, telling WildcatAuthority.com he might decide in the next few weeks. However, if UCLA gets seriously involved, we've heard that could change. The general sentiment is that, if Apsay does well at UCLA's camp in front of the UCLA coaches, the Bruins could get serious about him, and UCLA would then probably move to the top of Apsay's list and change the complexion of his recruitment.
