FOX Sports NEXT caught up with Los Angeles (Calif.) Bishop Mora Salesian quarterback Jihad Vercher to talk spring practices, schools of interest, and just why he shouldn't be written off because of his size...

Los Angeles (Calif.) Bishop Mora Salesian quarterback Jihad Vercher has stayed consistent in impressing during the off-season, and is eager to continue to show out in front of the college coaches who have stopped by the high school to watch him throw.

"Berkley (California), Washington State, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Texas State have all come by," he said.

The feedback Vercher has been receiving is positive, and at this point, he's keeping all of his options open. He's already taken visits to Cal, UCLA, Oregon, and UNLV, and is hoping to take another trip up to see the Ducks, as well as taking in the campuses of Washington State, Texas Tech, and Virginia.

Though the prospect will continue to hear that he's a bit undersized, he's ready to prove that height isn't everything.

"I hope people can overlook my size, because I'm a game changer; I can change the game at any moment. I'm a team leader; I can bring my team up when we're down. I'm just an athlete, all around," he said.
