Huskies show interest in Eubank

One of the top, still uncommitted signal-callers on the West Coast is Corona (Ca.) Centennial's Michael Eubank. After splitting time at the position as a junior, he's taken over the position and run with it, literally, and he's got several D-1 programs, including Washington, giving him a very long look...

"My coach said a lot of schools have been calling about me and asking for film," Eubank told Dawgman.com recently. "Washington and LSU are the ones that I know he's been sending out my film to and there are some others.

"I have an offer from Northern Colorado and San Jose State said they like me a lot and want to see more of me. They wanted to get me out on an official visit this weekend, but I'm taking the SAT so I can't be there, but I'll probably take one to see them a little bit later."

Eubank said Washington recruited him this past spring and said they would have their eyes on him this fall, but he said he has yet to hear from them this season.

"I'm obviously open to anyone that wants to recruit me," Eubank said. "I watched some of their game against USC on Saturday and it was a great game.

"They have some talent on offense and I know the coaching staff there is really high-energy and likes to get after it."

As a junior in 2009, Eubank split time with senior Michael Arredondo and managed to complete 58.7% of his passes for 1,123 yards with 9 touchdowns and 8 interceptions.

"I split time with him because the coaches liked what we both brought to the field," Eubank said. "I still had a lot to learn about the position, like mechanics and stuff like that, but I learned what I needed to work on and this summer, that's what I focused on and it's helped me this year."

Over the summer, Eubank worked with a local quarterback coach on abbreviating his throwing motion as well as making good decisions with the ball.

"A lot of it was footwork for me and, it sounds really minor, but I guess when I dropped back to pass, I held the nose of the ball up and that caused me to have a really long wind-up and throwing motion," Eubank said. "By tipping the ball down, it's allowed me to get it up to my ear quicker and it's compacted my throwing motion more and I can really tell the difference and so can my receivers.

"I thought without the wind-up, I wouldn't have the same velocity, but it's been just as good or even a little better for me, so the work I did this summer really helped me a lot."

Centennial is off to a 4-0 start and Eubank has been a major reason why, completing 67.2% of his passes for 700 yards, 5 touchdowns and only 1 interception while also leading the Huskies with 700 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns including a run of 80 yards for a score.

This weekend Eubank and the rest of his team take on Riverside Poly.
