Four-star goes on road trip
Josh Nunes (6-4, 205, 4.8) from Upland, Calif., has had a very busy spring break that saw the entire Nunes family go on a road trip to see four schools that have offered the talented signal caller scholies. The trip the Nunes family went on logged more than 3,000 miles, but it appears it was well worth it.Four-star quarterback prospect
"I had a great trip and went with the entire family up to Boise State," Nunes said. "We were able to get a good look at the Boise city and Boise State the college.
"I was very impressed with the coaching staff," Nunes said. "They were awesome and they have a great winning record. Boise State showed how they built the program.
"Then after Boise State, I went to Utah and I saw them practice," Nunes said. "That was great. Their practice was up tempo and it really showed the talent the players have and I liked how they put everything together.
"Our next stop was BYU and I was able to spend two days there," Nunes said. "BYU really did a great job extending friendship.
"BYU's coaching staff was great and I was able to get a lot of one-on-one time with the coaching staff," Nunes said. "I got to know them personally.
"BYU evaluates me not only as player, but as a person," Nunes said. "It was a great honor to be offered by BYU because of the emphasis they put on character.
"I was able to meet BYU's athletic director, head coach Bronco Mendenhall, my recruiting coach Mark Weber and position coach Brandon Doman. I was able to take in practices at BYU as well.
"After BYU we went to Colorado and I went to their junior day," Nunes said. "The junior day at Colorado was great as well.
"I got to spend a lot of time with Coach Hawkins (Dan Hawkins)," Nunes said. "I spent a lot of time checking the facilities and doing junior day stuff.
"Then we came home. We logged 3,330 miles during the trip," Nunes said. "Each school was good in their own way. The trip allowed me to see everything and gave me something to compare all the colleges to.
You would think that after logging all those miles that Nunes family would stay off the road for awhile, but the energetic Nunes family hit the road this past weekend as Nunes took in Cal's junior day.
"Cal was a great experience," Nunes said. "I hadn't been there yet and I was able to meet the coaching staff. They were fired up to meet me and I was fired up to meet them.
"I met with Coach Tedford (Jeff Tedford and new offensive coordinator Coach Cignetti (Frank Cignetti)," Nunes said. "They are great guys. Coach Tedford was out there throwing routes to the receivers.
"After Cal, I was able to get to Stanford and catch the last half of their spring game," Nunes said. "It was great. The kids were having fun and it was competitive.
"This coming weekend I will take an unofficial visit to Arizona State and check out their spring game," Nunes said. "I have been talking a lot to Texas Tech lately and I will also go to UCLA's spring game on April 26th.
"I want to see UCLA's coaches again," Nunes said. "The last time it was positive and fun.
If Nunes hasn't been busy enough, he isn't taking anything for granted and continues to work very hard to improve his skills as a quarterback. He is planning on going to the Elite 11 and the Super 7 quarterback camp put on by Steve Clarkson Memorial Weekend."
