After some opportunities fell through at the last minute, quarterback Turner Baty returned to his Bay Area home to restart the recruiting process.
Baty finished his prep career in Connecticut but grew up in the Bay Area and is now at City College of San Francisco, a traditional JC power.
With quarterback Steele Jantz gone to Iowa State, Baty is working for an opportunity to lead the Rams.
And with that, he’s hoping some offers come his way.
“I’m wide open but coaches have been talking with me,” said Baty. “We’re running a spread, no-huddle offense and we’ll go under center, so I’m looking at whatever offense. Spread, pro, I would love to play in either, but I’d really love to play in a pro-style offense. I’m just looking for a school that throws the ball around and has a tradition of being a pretty good offense.”
Now up to 6-2, 225, Baty is bigger than where he was as a prep.
“I’m a full qualifier, and after I play this season, I’ll have four years to play three, and really, distance doesn’t play a factor for me,” said Baty. “The reason I went to City College was because I didn’t have the offers I wanted. I work out with Tom Martinez and he has the utmost respect for Coach (George) Rush.”
Baty would like to check out some schools in the spring and summer.
“I’d probably like to take some official visits, find out who needs a guy, and then I’ll start to know more about that later on down the line, but I’d like to check out some schools soon,” said Baty.
