Nick Montana and Jesse Scroggins: Montana Leads Prospective UW QBs

Kevin CacabelosSenior Analyst IJune 8, 2009

Now that Jake Heaps has committed to BYU, which QB prospects are Sarkisian and his staff recruiting? There are two four-star recruit QBs that currently list the Huskies as one of their schools of interest, Nick Montana and Jesse Scroggins.

Nick Montana is the son of NFL legend Joe Montana, and hails from Oak Christian HS in California. He is 6'1" and weighs in at 185 lbs. Montana is ranked at No. 13 among QBs from the Class of 2010.

He has seven offers on the table besides UW, top flight programs including Ohio State, LSU, and Notre Dame have all offered. Notre Dame stands as the biggest threat, as it is his father's alma mater. It looks like Montana will probably make his decision by the end of the month.

In the meantime, Jesse Scroggins is the second target that Sarkisian is trying to lure. Scroggins is another California prospect, he is ranked No. 7 among QBs from the Class of 2010. He is 6'2" and weighs 191 lbs. He currently has seven offers on the table.

Besides UW, some schools that he is considering are Nebraska, Arizona State, and Tennessee. He plans on cutting his list down to five by late-July to mid-August, and then making a commitment by late August.

Bob Condotta from the Seattle Times has noted that Montana will most likely be the better bet as Scroggins' stock is rising too fast, and is currently slipping out of the fingers of the UW coaching staff.
