QB Recruit Crissman Improving, Looking Stronger

L.A. Times prep columnist Eric Sondheimer calls Karl Dorrell's offer to quarterback Nick Crissman "bold," choosing him over several other prominent seniors.

Now, he writes, that Crissman might end up being a steal:

At 6 feet 3, 200 pounds, Crissman is already looking physically stronger than he did in June, when he took over an Edison offense that returned no veteran receivers.

"He's done a great job because he's had to adjust," Edison Coach Dave White said. "We were dropping so many balls. He's grown up and matured. He's become a better quarterback, not just a better thrower."

Sondheimer also confirms a rumor that's been discussed on the recruiting sites:

Dorrell could be getting ready to pull the trigger on another quarterback offer. Crespi's Kevin Prince is thinking about going on a Mormon mission when he graduates in June, and he could be a candidate to join the Bruins, with an intention to enroll in 2010.

Prince, whose father attended UCLA, was expected to meet with Dorrell later this month to discuss his options. Washington and Brigham Young have already made offers to Prince, who has made impressive improvement this summer.
