JUCO QB has great visit
Kent State's search for a quarterback in its 2012 recruiting class may be coming to a close in the near future. The Flashes hosted San Marcos (Calif.) Palomar C.C. product David Fisher over the weekend on an official visit and the 6-foot, 215-pound prospect came away impressed by his long trip East.
"It went real good," said Fisher of the visit. "I had a lot of fun and I liked it a lot."
Fisher spent most of his time with Kent State offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Brian Rock talking about the Flashes' offensive system.
"I pretty much talked to coach Rock, my position coach," he said. "We talked X's and O's, how they run their offense there and what they expect from their quarterbacks. They basically gave me the low down of how they want their quarterbacks to play, what they want them to do, what their offense is about, and how they play. It was fun and it was a fired up conversation, a lot of energy and excitement."
The visit left a big impression on Fisher who says the Flashes are in the lead for his services at the moment.
"Kent State is right at the top," he said. "I loved my visit there. I had a lot of fun and they have a great coaching staff. It's a great place and I had a lot of fun and I'm really happy with what they're trying to do with that program and what's going to happen with the future of that program."
Fisher will become even more familiar with the Kent State program on Monday when head coach Darrell Hazell makes his in-home visit.
"Coach Hazell is going to come tomorrow (Monday) to meet my parents," Fisher explained. "Coach Rock already came down last week and coach Hazell is going to come and talk to my parents tomorrow (Monday). They've been pretty straight forward with me so it's more of a chance to see how they feel about me. They told me that they want me to come in and compete for a starting job."
Fisher is coming off an outstanding final season at Palomar where he threw for over 2,500 yards and 27 touchdowns to go along with 450 yards rushing and an additional seven scores.
"My season went very well," he explained. "I earned the starting position this past year which was the first time I started since my senior year of high school. The year before I was more of a wildcat quarterback so this year was pretty much my time to shine. Overall I think I had a really good season and I was co-offensive player of the year of the Southern California Conference."
Fisher points to his intangibles as a major reason for his success on the football field.
"I think I'm a good leader," he said. "I think that's a good asset in being a quarterback. Your teammates have to trust you and look to you in those tight situations. I think I can help and come in there and help lead the team. I think their offense is a perfect fit for me and I think the MAC would be a fun conference to play in."
