Hosick Discusses Combine And New Offer

Kansas City (MO) Staley quarterback Trent Hosick had a busy weekend with a strong US Army combine performance and receiving his second verbal offer on Sunday. We talk to him about both things and get his thoughts.

We have talked Kansas City (MO) signal-caller Trent Hosick 6'2" 221 4.6, who is one of the more talented quarterbacks in the entire class of 2013, and  also among the very best in the Show-Me state overall, since last February when he attended the Show-Me Combine in St. Louis.

Since that time Hosick has merely won a state championship and won multiple post season honors after throwing for over 1,400 yards and 10 TDs, along with rushing for over 2,000 yards and 30 more scores.

This past weekend was a busy one for Hosick, who attended the US Army combine in San Antonio (TX) and also picked up his second verbal offer to play quarterback on the college level.

We caught up with Trent following his return from Texas to catch up on all the latest with him.

" I had a great time at the combine," said Hosick. "It was a great experience to be around so many of the best athlete and players in the country, and to be part of something like that. I did not do any of the testing other then the bench press, which I did 185lbs 27 times, the most by any quarterback at the combine unofficially. The next highest total was 21 by another quarterback and there seemed to be some confusion about that when the awards were given out,  but the officials said they would get cleared up."

Despite not testing in all the events, one other area Hosick excelled was throwing in the one on one's.

" I had a really good day throwing the ball," said Hosick. " I completed 29 of 32 attempts on the day. The coaches made it really easy for us. They just gave us the route and where the ball needed to be placed and it was all about timing and accuracy."

Trent received some high praise after his performance from former NFL QB and Football University coach Sean Salisbury.

"Coach Salisbury came up to me afterwards and told me how well I threw and said that I was among his top 3 quarterbacks there that he saw. So, that was a real honor to have happen," said Hosick.

If the excitement of attending the combine was not enough, things were going on back at his high school that led to some good news when he returned home.

" Apparently something like  9 or 10 schools came by to check on me while I was in San Antonio," relayed Hosick. " Coach Bouchard said that Missouri, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Iowa, Iowa State, Northwestern, Kansas, Nebraska, Tulsa and I think maybe Northern Illinois all came and inquired about me. And when I got home I had a message that I needed to call the Tulsa coach. When I did he told me that they think a lot of me as a Quarterback and that they would like me to come play for them and be the face of their program."

I asked the always humble Hosick his thoughts on the new offer.

" It's very humbling and always a great honor when any school offers you and will provide you a chance at a great education to be paid for. Tulsa is a very good school with good academics and I am honored that they feel good enough about me to extend an offer to me," he said.

With wrestling season in full swing and the state championships coming up, Trent isn't sure if he will be making any junior day visits. He said that multiple schools including Missouri have talked to him about attending.

For now his focus will return to wrestling and then football and his recruitment after that.
