Badgers showing interest in Mass. quarterback

The 6-foot-4 185-pound signal-caller already has a scholarship offer from Duke, with an array of schools in pursuit.

Zack Asack, a Westwood, Mass., native, had a solid junior season. "I threw for 1,500 yards and 10 touchdowns," he said. "We're more of a running team, but we did throw the ball at the end of the year more."

Asack already has his first offer. "Duke University has offered me," he said. "I'm getting a lot of mail from Boston College, Virginia, Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Stanford, Nebraska and Syracuse mainly."

Already a veteran of many camps, Asack plans to attend more camps this summer. "I've been to Boston College camps since my freshman year," he added. "My team always goes there. Last year I went to Notre Dame camp. I know I'm going to the Nike Camp at Virginia. I'll go to Boston College camp again, I might go to Virginia. I can't really say where I'm going to go yet. I haven't decided on all of that yet."

Asack is also a smart kid. He said he currently has a 3.4 grade point average in his core courses.

What will be important to Zack when he makes his decision?

"I'll look at the depth chart," he said. "I want to be able to play. I don't want to sit behind some All-American the whole time. I'll look for a place where I might sit for a year and then I'll have a chance. I probably won't decide early. I want to check out a bunch of schools. I want to go to a school that is pretty close to home yet is far enough away to feel independent."

We also asked Asack which schools he cheered for growing up. "I liked Boston College, the Florida Gators and Duke," he said."My Dad played at Duke. We just went down there to check out their new facilities. They have brand new, state of the art facilities. They are impressive."
