2014 Wheaton North (Ill.) quarterback Clayton Thorson's first SEC offer is in.
"Ole Miss offered me," Thorson said.
Thorson had heard from Ole Miss before, but wasn't quite expecting the offer so soon.
"My coach told me Monday after school that Ole Miss had called and wanted to offer me," Thorson said. "I talked to Coach Werner after school and he told me that they were offering me."
And he has a few early impressions of the staff.
"Coach Werner seems like a nice guy and someone I would get along with," Thorson said. "I have not talked to anyone else on the staff besides him and the wide receiver coach, but they do seem energetic and like a fun coaching staff to be around."
And as for the program overall, the Midwestern prospect seems to be noticing them from afar.
"Their program has been doing well in the past few years," Thorson said. "And they are bringing in some big time players so they are definitely going to be national championship contenders in the years to come, so that is intriguing."
He added, "The SEC is obviously a great conference with good competition week in and week out."
Although Thorson spent some time out wide at Wheaton North at wide receiver, the 6-foot-4, 200 pound signal caller is getting recruited as a quarterback.
"All the schools that are recruiting me are recruiting me as a quarterback," Thorson said.
And has one visit coming up in the near future.
"I am going to visit Penn State March 12-13," Thorson said. "I am looking forward to visiting with Coach O'Brien more and talking with their coaching staff as well as with the players. Another thing is just to see Penn State's campus and what it is like."
Thorson just returned from a visit to Northwestern, where he came away impressed.
"The visit went very well," Thorson said. "I had a good time with the players and had good meetings with the offensive coordinator and Coach Fitzgerald."
He added, "My favorite part was probably just spending time with the guys and getting to know them better."
