40 time: 4.57
From: San Diego, California
High School: St. Augustine
"After getting home and talking with my family, friends, and coaches, I called Coach (Quarterbacks coach Mark) Helfrich and Coach (head coach Dirk) Koetter and told them that ASU is where I want to be," explained the nation's no.9 signal caller. "I told them that it is in my best interest to attend school there and I was giving them my solid verbal."
Forcier took us through his grand weekend.
"It could not have gone any better and the people at Arizona State could not have been more hospitable. I have not gone on any other official visits but I cannot imagine anywhere being better than there. It was a perfect ten out of ten.
"They picked me up at the airport on time, and took me over to see the facilities before the game. My host was Rudy Carpenter and they were all a bunch of great guys. During the game it was awesome to see them put the ball up 51 times. After the game we went to a really nice Asian restaurant for dinner. I went with my host afterwards and we went around to the dorm rooms to meet a lot of people and I got a little idea of what the night life is like at ASU outside of football. But really, since it was family weekend I just went around and met a lot of people.
"On Sunday, I took a tour of the campus and got to watch the players go through a light workout. The redshirt freshman go a little more in-depth with the workout since they did not play. Then I went in and watched film with the coaches and Coach Helfrich and I were comparing and contrasting their offense to the one we run at Saint Augustine and they are very similar. He told me that they have a lot of plays in the playbook for a more mobile quarterback and we will use them when I get there.
"Before we left, my dad had a meeting with the coaches and had some of his questions answered and he gave me the go-ahead to commit if I wanted to. But, I told the coaches I still wanted to sleep on it and come back home and talk to my mom before doing it. Then today, I went ahead and did it."
On the year, Forcier has 600 rushing yards and eight touchdowns for 4-3 St. Augustine. Through the air, he has 1,600 yards and 20 touchdowns. "Our season has been a little rough. We have a lot of injuries and our defense is giving up an average of 40 points a game. I was playing a little safety at the beginning of the year but I am not anymore. We have been open-casting around campus asking a lot of people if they will come out for the team because we need some more bodies."
Before committing to the Devils, the star QB had written offers from Oregon, Wisconsin, Utah, Utah State, Colorado, Indiana, Boise State, Wyoming, Illinois, UTEP, Washington, and San Diego State.
Forcier is the third known verbal commitment for Arizona State this class.
St. Augustine takes on Mira Mesa, this Friday.
