Recruiting picks up for Josker

Finding a player that can handle the pivot is the key to every offense. He has to be athletic enough to pull on running plays, strong enough to handle big defensive tackles and smart enough to make all of the line calls. Moorpark C Steven Josker (6-3.5, 288) is player that has worked hard to put himself into a position where he could get a D-1 scholarship and that may be happening very soon...

Moorpark finished the season 4-6, but they lost several close games.

"We lost three games by less than seven points and there were a couple where we had the lead and we couldn't hold onto it," Josker said. "It was a rough season, but it wasn't like we were getting blown out by every team we faced. We were close and that's what made it so disappointing."

To a certain extent Josker has also been disappointed with the recruiting attention he's been getting, but he may be getting close to that ever-elusive first offer.

"Northern Arizona, Nevada, New Hampshire, Alabama State, Arizona and UCLA have all been talking to me a lot," Josker said. "Nevada told me to be ready for them to offer because they are losing their senior center and they want to replace him. They seem like the closest to offering at this point, but I'm not sure.

"Arizona and UCLA have both been calling and asking for film on me and checking my transcripts, so they are two more that could offer down the road."

Josker had hoped to sign this month during the signing period for mid-year JC tranfers, but if he doesn't get any scholarships he'll sign in February hoping to still make it to campus in time for spring ball and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
