Masuk's Cochran ready for busy summer

By ESPNBoston.com

ESPN's Roger Brown checks in today on his recruiting blog with Masuk (Conn.) quarterback Casey Cochran, who will be hitting a handful of camps over the next two months in an effort to expand his number of offers.

Boston College is the only school offering the junior right now. In addition to BC's one day camp, he'll be going to UConn, Syracuse, Temple, Harvard, Penn, Princeton and Yale. Brown writes:


"The biggest thing the next two months are camps," Cochran said. "A lot of these schools probably aren't going to offer until they see me in person. BC came to my school recently and I receive letters from them every week, so the communication from them remains good.

"Besides BC I'd say Connecticut, Yale, Princeton and Penn, as well as Iowa and Temple, are the schools showing the most interest."

Cochran, who is scheduled to graduate from high school in January, led Masuk to a 13-0 record and Connecticut's Class L state championship last season. He completed 200 of 295 pass attempts for 3,345 yards and 40 touchdowns as a junior, when he was named Connecticut's Gatorade Player of the Year.

Cochran said he is looking at all the Ivy League schools, and has visited Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton and Yale. He has also visited Connecticut, Syracuse, Temple and Villanova. He also said he'd prefer to choose a college before September.

"Hopefully some offers will come after the camps," he said. "That's the assumption."
