Three-Star Cali QB Discusses Visit To UW

Thousand Oaks (Ca.) QB Max Gilliam is becoming a popular quarterback prospect in the 2016 recruiting class. This week, the dual-threat signal-caller was in the Pacific Northwest to check out three of the schools that are showing him a lot of interest and Monday was his day to check out the Huskies...

"I had a great time," Gilliam told "The facilities really amazed me. I had no idea they were that nice and the coaches were really cool down to earth guys but I could also tell they were very good and serious about what they do.

"I really enjoyed it.

"I would say the facilities were probably the coolest part. They really blew me away."

While he was on campus, Gilliam got a chance to talk with the coaches and they were up front with him about where they are in the recruiting process as far as quarterbacks are concerned.

"They said they have a couple offers out and that if none of those guys commit they will probably offer and that they will come down to my school to watch me throw in the next couple of weeks," Gilliam said.

The two other Pacific Northwest Schools he visited were Washington State and Oregon State.

"They were great. I liked them both and thought the facilities were nice and enjoyed spending time with the coaches," Gilliam noted. "They both said they liked my film and would be out to my school to watch me throw in the next couple weeks as well."

As a junior last season, Gilliam completed nearly 70% of his passes (211 of 305) for 2,920 yards while throwing for 29 touchdowns and just eight interceptions.

He also rushed for 625 yards and 12 more scores.

"I am a pass-first guy," Gilliam said. "I'll use my legs to extend plays and look down field, but I have no problem taking off if I have to."

Gilliam currently sports offers from Toledo and Marshall, but hopes to get some more offers and decide before his senior season, but also noted that if he's not ready to commit to a school, then he has no qualms about waiting and making his decision later in the process. Top Stories
