Recruiting moves along for Laudenslayer

It's been a while since we've been able to catch up with Mendocino QB Jacob Laudenslayer (6-3, 225) and he's been a busy young man. He's been working on the finer-points of playing quarterback while also leading 7-on-7 drills and he's been getting some attention from a few schools on the recruiting trail as well. Read on to find out more...

"We've been really working hard," Laudenslayer said about he and his teammates recently. "We're out throwing a lot and I'm working on my mechanics and footwork a lot.

"That old saying is 'if you're not getting better, you're getting worst' and that's something we've all taken to heart."

As a freshman for Mendocino in 2007, Laudenslayer completed 75 of 136 passes for 1,022 yards, 11 touchdowns and only three interceptions while using his 4.55 speed and excellent running ability to rush for over 600 yards and six touchdowns on the ground.

On the recruiting front, Fresno State, Oregon, San Diego State, California and San Jose State have all been making it known they will be watching Laudenslayer this fall.

"I just started getting contacted by San Jose State pretty recently," Laudenslayer said. "They run a great offense for me because it's pretty wide open.

"Actually, all of the schools looking at me have great offenses, even thought hey are sorta different in their own ways.

"I played spread in high school and we play out of the spread here at Mendocino, but I think I can be good in any system. I have a good arm and I'm pretty accurate, so I think it's just a matter of me getting comfortable in a system and then when I'm not thinking as much, I can make more plays because I'm just reacting."

Laudenslayer was a full-qualifier out of high school so he'll be able to leave this December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
