Who is this kid?

Okay, I found out about this kid a while ago and I thought he was a little odd. Now he has again been brought to my attention, and I have to post about him.

This is a quarterback from San Diego named Tate Forcier. (Click here for his Profile.) Apparently he is the dominant force in San Diego football. I say that because virtually every college football program worth a darn in this country has offered him a scholarship. How do I know? He scanned every one of his offers and posted them to his Web site!

Here is one example- an offer from Tommy Tuberville of Auburn:

Is it just me or is that a little nuts? I mean, if I were Les Miles or Jim Tressel or another big time coach I wouldn't want some kid posting an offer for a full-ride athletic scholarship for the world to see. I don't know why, I mean I guess it's not totally private, but it just rubs me the wrong way.

All in all I think Forcier has 34 offers, and recently he "trimmed" that list down to 20. Something tells me this kid thinks he's a bit too cool for school.

His Web site claims an offer from BYU is "in the mail," but I hope that's not the case. I know he's probably a great player, but I hope BYU didn't offer him. I have a feeling having a guy like this on our team would do more harm than good.

Just check out his Web site, for heaven's sakes. This kid absolutely loves himself. If he comes to BYU he may quickly turn into another John Walsh.

What a punk. I hope Bronco sends him a letter saying BYU doesn't want him because he sucks.

Great post. I think the kid could be BYU's next Jim McMahon.

Actually, I'm surprised he's not taller. Any QB recruit that gets that kind of attention is usually more than 6'1".

I love his line: 'when I got pressure I usually make the play'.

He is also a self proclaimed 'gamer'.
