First Offer For Ohio QB
The 2012 quarterback class in Ohio is one of the deepest in years with several prospects holding Division-I scholarship offers, including Lexington's Collin Michael. Michael, 6-foot-5, 210-pounds, has been turning heads since playing varsity as a freshman. He missed part of his junior season due to a knee injury, but now that college coaches are able to see him in person, recruiting interest is picking up. "I landed my first offer today (Friday) from Central Michigan," Michael exclaimed excitedly. "They were in the school to see me throw and when I finished they told my coach that I had the offer. I really like Central Michigan and I've been there for a junior day. They are a great school and I loved the facilities." Now that the spring evaluation period is under way, college coaches are able to see for themselves that Michael is fully recovered from his knee injury, and they can see his arm strength is impressive. Several other schools are recruiting him. "I've been visited by Indiana and Michigan State recently, and I like both schools a lot," he explained. "Indiana has a new staff, so they are just starting to recruit me. I've been to Michigan State before and I liked what they have to offer." Michael is planning an ambitious camp tour this summer, where he will look to add more offers. "I will be at Purdue in early June and that's a school I've been interested in for a long time," he added. "I will also be camping at Indiana, Michigan and Michigan State following our school bus tour. My team will be heading to North Carolina, Wake Forest, Duke, Cincinnati and Ohio State on our bus tour." "I'm definitely interested in any school that's interested in me and I'm more than willing to go to camp and try to earn an offer," he stressed. "I know schools want to see I'm fully recovered and that's fine with me, because I love to compete."
