There was no doubt about who the No. 1 quarterback at the Ohio State Senior Advanced Camp on Sunday was. With Braxton Miller (Huber Heights, Ohio/Wayne) in attendance and working out, the Under Armour All-American was gathering plenty of attention from OSU quarterbacks coach Nick Siciliano as well as many parents and fans watching.
But also drawing the interest of Siciliano was rising junior quarterback Will McCollister (Ironton, Ohio/Rock Hill).
The 6-foot-4 and 215-pound McCollister has been a varsity starter since the beginning of his freshman season. In the first season McCollister threw for just over 1,300 yards.
McCollister threw for approximately 1,350 yards and rushed for 400 during his sophomore season.
The left-handed McCollister is mostly a drop-back type quarterback, but he is talented athlete that can run when needed. He is also on the Rock Hill varsity basketball and track teams and has a 4.0 GPA.
At the OSU camp, McCollister showed he has an outstanding arm as well as pretty good accuracy and touch on the ball.
On Sunday evening McCollister discussed the Ohio State camp with Bucknuts.com.
“I thought it was a good chance to get the coaches eyes on me and see what they thought,” McCollister said. “I got to be seen by the best.”
McCollister seems to have impressed the Bucks.
“I talked to coach Siciliano,” McCollister said. “He said I have a big arm. He said the thing I need to work on is a faster release.”
McCollister plans to attend Cincinnati’s camp on Wednesday and the Indiana camp on Friday. He said he is receiving mail from those two as well as Michigan, Nebraska, Tennessee, Buffalo, Princeton and Dartmouth.
“Ohio State is definitely at the top of my list,” McCollister said. “But I’m still open to other schools like Cincinnati, Notre Dame, Indiana, mostly big-time schools in the Midwest.”
