Nottingham To Camp At UCLA

Danville (Calif.) Monte Vista quarterback Brett Nottingham will throw at UCLA's 1-Day Camp, one of the handful of camps he'll be participating in this spring...

Danville (Calif.) Monte Vista quarterback Brett Nottingham continues to stay in contact with a host of schools, and several schools are planning to be by the Monte Vista campus or welcome Nottingham to their college campuses in the weeks ahead.

"Coach (Marcus) Arroyo at Wyoming had verbally offered me but they came and watched me throw last Monday so now its an official offer from them," said Nottingham. "I went to UC Davis' Spring Game (on Saturday) and Coach (Bob) Biggs offered me a full scholarship. So things are really starting to pick up."

Nottingham has gotten a slew of interest from the Pac-10 as well, and will be camping at three Pac-10 programs and potentially a fourth.

"I'm going to UCLA's camp on June 6th to throw and I've been invited to Stanford's quarterback camp and I'm going there too," said Nottingham. "And Arizona, I could still go there and throw, but I have to talk to Coach (Jeff) Hammerschmidt because they got a quarterback commitment."

Meanwhile, local favorite Cal is also looming large on Nottingham.

"Coach (Jeff) Tedford invited me to the Cal camp like I did last year," said Nottingham. I may go for the whole time or I may just go for the last day but he said he wants to see me throw this spring. I'm really interested in Cal but I know they have some offers out to other quarterbacks. We'll see what happens, but I like Cal a lot."

UCLA has a strong family history with Nottingham, with his sisters both attending there and Nottingham attending games and Junior Day in Westwood.

"Coach (Norm) Chow said he would be coming to watch me throw this spring and they want me to come down to their camp," said Nottingham. "I'm very interested in UCLA too."

And Stanford has a connection to Nottingham, his favorite target, Zach Ertz, heading to Palo Alto this fall.

"Coach (Ron) Lynn is a great guy and Stanford has shown some interest, but really, not as much as I thought they would. They know a lot about me because of Zach going there," said Nottingham. "I do like Stanford though and I'm going to Coach Harbaugh's quarterback camp."

Nottingham, though, is willing to be patient and wait out the initial wave of quarterback offers and commits.

"I'm just staying patient and see what happens and what works out for me," said Nottingham. "I have a couple of good options (in Wyoming and UC Davis), so I'll just see what happens when more schools come by the school and some watch me throw when our spring practice at the end of the month."

Nottingham is an excellent student, carrying a 4.0 GPA and scoring a 1740 on the SAT in March.

He was an all-camp selection at the Badger/Scout 7on7 Passing Tournament and this weekend he'll be at both the Elite 11 Camp at Berkeley and the Stanford Nike Camp on Sunday.

As a 2008 junior, Nottingham threw for over 3,500 yards and 39 touchdowns.
