One of the leading receivers in California as a junior, Chino Hills (Calif.) Ayala receiver David Quiroga is hoping to emerge this spring with some offers to choose from...

Chino Hills (Calif.) Ayala receiver David Quiroga (6-1.5, 205), had one of the biggest years for a receiver last fall in California, finishing among the leaders in the state statistical charts.

Quiroga caught 72 passes for 1,096 yards and scored 10 touchdowns and added 51 carries for 282 yards and four touchdowns. All told, he had 1,581 all-purpose yards and 14 touchdowns and led the Sierra League in receptions, yards and touchdowns.

Now, Quiroga is bracing himself for what he hopes is an even more productive senior season, and a spring that will land him his first offer.

“I’ve talked to Arizona State and I’ve been in close contact with Boise State, Stanford, Washington State,Washington, San Diego State, a lot of schools in the Pac-10, WAC and Utah,” said Quiroga.

While he waits for the first offer to come in, he’s been getting positive feedback from the schools he dialogues with.

“A lot of the colleges, they’ve been telling me that if I come to their camp and do well, they’re willing to offer,” said Quiroga. “The schools that are going to be down here during the spring, I’ll have a clearer view of which camps I’ll attend.”

Quiroga was at the Badger/New Level Pass Camp in March and also did the Nike Camp and plans to do the PrepStar Combine, the UCLA Adidas Camp and UnderArmour/Scout.com Combine later this month.

“I’m just trying to stay busy and get out and play some football,” said Quiroga.

While he prefers to play on the offensive side of the ball, Quiroga has the size where the secondary could also be an option for him.

“I play both sides of the ball, and on defense, they roll me down to strong safety. But if I played a defensive position, it would be as a free safety,” said Quiroga.

Quiroga said his top schools at this point were Boise State, Oregon, Washington State, Arizona State, Arizona, Colorado and Stanford

“I’m going to try and commit before the season, either before summer or during the summer,” said Quiroga.

He’s hoping to have the decision made so his senior year can be free of distraction, one in which he’s hoping to pass his numbers from a year ago.

“They’ll probably put me more as a wingback this year,” said Quiroga. “I was able to get a lot of yards and receptions, but we have a younger guy at quarterback so I’m looking for more all-purpose yards, maybe 2,000 and 20 touchdowns.”

Academically, Quiroga is in fine shape, with a 3.3 GPA. He’ll take the SAT tomorrow and is waiting for his ACT score.
