Stockbridge QB Holds Four Offers

Tyler Bass, a quarterback prospect at Stockbridge High school, is starting to get some major looks from some top schools around the Nation. Bass talked to about his four scholarship offers and his two favorites.

"It's going good," Tyler Bass said of his recruitment. "It's starting to pick up heavy. I have offers from Air Force, Indiana, Purdue and Western Kentucky."

"North Carolina told me and my Coach that they are close to offering me. Wake Forest said that they were coming down to watch my spring practice in two weeks.  They said I looked good on film.  I feel like they will probably offer me then."

"I went up to Louisville for their junior day and talked to Coach Tony Alford. He said if it was up to him, they would offer me.  I also talked to their head Coach Steve Kragthorpe."

"Kansas State sends me text messages almost everyday."
Bass attended junior days at South Carolina, Louisville, and Georgia Tech.  He also took unofficial visits to North Carolina and Western Kentucky.

The 6-foot-3, 207-pounder completed 89 of 184 passes for 1,190 yards and 16 touchdowns last season. Bass only solidified himself as a top prospect with a good performance in Friday's Elite 11 quarterback camp.

"My Coach said he's gotten a couple of calls from other coaches that were there and they all said I did very good," Bass said. "I actually finished second in the Golden Gun Accuracy Challenge.  I feel like I did pretty good."

"I feel like I could have done better as far as like mechanic wise and snapping my wrist a little bit more. I would have gotten a tighter spiral. But overall, people said I did good. My teammates said they were proud of me and that sure made me feel good."

As far as his recruiting process goes, two schools currently lead for the talented signal caller form Stockbridge, Ga.

"Right now I'm wide open, but if I had to lean toward one or two schools, I would have to say North Carolina and Louisville," said Bass.

North Carolina - "The people there are great. I talked to some of the students and they had nothing but good things to say about the University. Coach Butch Davis is a great coach. He was down there in Miami and everybody knows about the good things he did there. He had twenty-eight first round draft picks.  I like Coach Tommy Thigpen a lot. He's a real nice guy. The whole environment, the town of Chapel Hill, is just real nice up there."

Louisville - "I didn't think Louisville was going to be as big as it was.  Coach Alford is a real nice guy. When I went up there, every single coach knew my name. They even knew where I was from and that really made me feel at home.  I also was very impressed with Coach Jeff Brohm, the quarterbacks coach.  I went to watch them practice and they had a ton of people there just to see Louisville practice.  I talked to some of the people in attendance.  They really support their football team.  I felt very comfortable there."

Despite having two teams at the top of his list, Bass is in no hurry to make a final decision on his recruiting.

"I still don't have a time-frame to make my decision, but I'm definitely planning on taking my official visits. I'll probably commit after my senior season.  I just want to take my time and enjoy the entire recruiting process."
