Tate Forcier plans to visit five schools

Now that the recruiting carousel has stopped spinning for the most part in 2011, former Michigan quarterback Tate Forcier has a better idea of what schools will be interested in his services, and it seems he begins to plan visiting schools on Monday. According to a tweet from Joe Schad on Saturday morning, those schools are Kansas State, Washington, Arizona, Miami and Montana.




Schad tweeted later that the visits will start with Kansas State or Miami first.

Interestingly enough, two of the schools on Forcier's list are Washington and Miami. The same two schools who just lost out on Jacoby Brissett to Florida. Though it should be pointed out that Washington may have an edge on the other schools. Forcier comes from San Diego and has worked with quarterback guru Steve Clarkson in the past. Clarkson has ties to current Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian, which you would think works to the Huskies benefit.

Though what will matter the most to Forcier, who will likely have to sit out a year before playing again anywhere, is the chance to play on Saturdays.

I would imagine he would have to go to the school with the lowest academic standards considering he flunked out of PE at Michigan. Hope he gets his head straight, would hate to see him waste his talent.

If he went to K-State, he'd be the best college QB they had in awhile and probably even out play Freeman at that level.   Freeman was never very good until he got to the pros and they worked wonders with him.   Forcier would be a guarenteed starter for K-State and a definite upgrade for them.

Correct me if I'm wrogn, but didn't Wisconsin (and not Washington) lose out in the Jacoby Brissett sweepstakes?

Tate to Delaware only to keep his wings. Delaware copies the Michigan winged helmet, Tate isnt a bad quarterback he could be the next Flutie, but Tate's biggest problem is Tate everything has to be tweeted. Good ATHLETE just bad study habits, tried to put to much on one plate, and still excell to compete with Robinson.

Tate Forcier has some talent. He would be a nice addition to any school. He just lost his job to a more explosive player who has earned the job. All those school would be solid choices. @ Montana, he'd be the star and have a shot @ the FCS Div I title. Devlin @ Delaware benefitted from going the FCS route and wound up in the title game and increased his draft position. Forcier could go the same path.

Imo, Montana would be best. Arizona and Washington would be ok as well.

Is this the same Tom Brady that UM fans wanted to be benched in Favor of Drew Henson when Drew was a Freshmen?

Trust me, Forcier won't be playing on Sundays....

Tate would be a really good D-2 QB.   Tate is a little too frail for the Big Ten and other big schools.
