San Clemente quarterback Jack Sears landed two big offers in the span of two days, increasing his impressive list of collegiate suitors. The standout signal caller picked up offers from UCLA and Texas A&M this week.
The Bruins offered Sears after watching him practice on April 19. The Texas A&M offer came on April 20.
Sears’ list of collegiate offers now stands at 17 and head coach Jaime Ortiz said he expects more to flood in over the next few weeks during the spring observation period.
Ortiz said San Diego State University, Northwestern and Cal were all in attendance at the Tritons’ practice on April 19 to watch the rising quarterback. Sears already holds offers from both Northwestern and San Diego State.
In an email, Ortiz said that Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin is scheduled to watch Sears throw within the next two weeks.
Sears had a breakout junior season for the Tritons in 2015, throwing for 2,697 yards and 37 touchdowns. He also rushed for 862 yards and nine scores and led San Clemente to the CIF-SS Southwest Division title game.
