Corp cuts it short
Aaron Corp had scholarship offers from schools across the PAC-10.Villa Park (Calif.) Orange Lutheran quarterback
However, last week one school made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Today, the 6-foot-4, 195-pound All-CIF selection decided to end the recruiting process by committing to a school he was surprised to hear from just weeks ago.
But as his father, Chris Corp, noted last week, recruiting is a phenomenon to behold.
"What's interesting is the whirlwind of recruiting that has come through since early March," said Chris Corp. "We're barely into May, but this is a year in which an unusual amount of good quarterbacks have committed early.
"Now you're starting to see the dominoes fall."
As he predicted, the dominoes are falling.
Tuesday, one of California's top rated quarterbacks became the latest signal caller to verbally commit before the start of his senior season.
"I called coach (Pete) Carroll last night and told him that I wanted to be a Trojan," said Aaron Corp. "I had a few other college coaches come by my school today, so out of respect for them, I held off on announcing my decision until now."
Playing in an offensive system that mixes the veer option with the pass, Corp accumulated 1,634 yards and 22 touchdowns through the air as a junior. On the ground, Corp earned league MVP honors running for 600 yards and eight more touchdowns.
"I knew where I wanted to go Sunday, but I wanted to let things sink in after I got the offer last week," said Corp. "I wanted to make sure I was solid with my decision, and I am."
