2013 quarterback Brogan Roback
may be on the verge of pocketing some BCS offers. The 6-4, 185-pound
junior out of Toledo (Ohio) St. John’s has drawn significant interest
from a number of top programs, and it may be only a matter of time
before the BCS offers roll in.

“It’s
going good,” Roback said of recruiting. “It’s starting to pick up. I’ve
been getting a lot of interest from Ohio State. Michigan State is still
all over me, and Iowa as well. I’m going to Iowa on February 5 (for
Junior Day), and Ohio State on February 18. And I just got back from
Michigan State. They say I’m at the top of their list now, and they want
to finish up with 2012 and then start with our class. It’s only a
matter of time, I think.”

Roback, who currently holds offers from Toledo and Bowling Green, is friends with Hawkeye players and fellow Ohioans Ray Hamilton and Andrew Donnal.
Roback took the trip out to Kinnick Stadium twice this fall to watch
the Hawkeyes take on Northwestern and Michigan State. Hawkeye assistant
Phil Parker is heading up his recruitment.

“I’ve been keeping in contact with them,” Roback said of Iowa.
“Coach Parker wants to get me back out there so I can sit in meetings
and talk to the quarterbacks coach (Ken O’Keefe). I want to build that
relationship with the quarterbacks coach. We’ll see what happens when I
get down there.”

Roback recently stood out at the U.S. Army All-American Combine in San Antonio.

“I think after the Army combine, that kind of brought me to Iowa’s attention even more,” Roback said.

Hamilton continues to offer advice on the recruiting process to Roback.

“He says to just keep coming back, see if it’s the right fit for
me and see if I like it, and just keep building a relationship with the
coaches,” Roback said of Hamilton.

Roback completed 98-of-178 passes for 1,800 yards as a junior. He
posted 15 touchdowns through the air to go with six interceptions, and
rushed for another 636 yards and eight touchdowns. He led St. John’s to
the Regional Finals last year as a sophomore, earning Special Mention
All-State after passing for about 2,200 yards and 25 touchdowns, while
running for another six scores.
