Norco athlete Victor Viramontes is easily among the state's top players on both sides of the ball. His senior film (see above) is tremendous and there is no doubt he could play quarterback or linebacker at the college level.
It was assumed Viramontes would play his college ball at Michigan after committing to the Wolverines back in June. He took his official visit in late November and had a great time and all signs pointed to the athlete being solid in his commitment.
Viramontes wants a shot at quarterback and we heard Michigan wanted him more as a linebacker/fullback, hence the breakup in early December. The night of his de-commitment, Cal offered him and several other schools have jumped in to the mix as well.
"I've been talking to UCLA, Indiana, Virginia, Oregon, Miami, Utah, Hawaii and Georgia Tech," Viramontes said. "I haven't set up any official trips yet but I want to go see Cal, UCLA, Utah, Oregon and Georgia Tech.
"All but Oregon and UCLA have offered me in that group. UCLA said they want me to set up an official visit first before they offer. All of those schools are recruiting me as a quarterback right now. As for a timeframe for when I could commit, I really don't know right now. I just want to take my trips and then when I feel good about a school, I'll go ahead and do it."
Viramontes is definitely an intriguing option right now for schools looking for a quarterback/athlete. He has a lot of Tim Tebow in his game and is a big, physical kid with toughness and is among the most competitive athletes in the region.
He runs well, makes plays and if things don't work out for him at quarterback, he has all the physical tools to be an excellent linebacker. This one could come down to a Signing Day decision.
