Rummel's Fourcade enjoying late recruiting from schools

Good things come to those who wait. Its an expression that in Rummel quarterback Chase Fourcades case has proven to be true.

After months of getting ignored by bigger schools, the Nicholls State commit received his first power five scholarship offer last week to the University of Maryland.

"No matter where I play, coaches will find you,
Fourcade said. And your dream is to play college football and that's what I've been working hard at for the past 18 years, 17 years playing football."

Rummel head coach Jay Roth has watched that work ethic for the last three seasons with Fourcade as his starting quarterback.

"Nobody deserves it more than him, nobody knows how hard Chase has worked outside of Rummel to get where he is right now. Roth said. He would go practice at playgrounds at night throwing motions, footwork and he's earned this opportunity within the last two or three weeks to have choices."
 

Choices that were not available in the beginning despite his prolific high school career. Mainly because, as Roth put it, his six-foot signal caller didnt have the ideal measurables.


"College football is all about the eyeball test. They could walk on the field and I could have five guys and if Chase is the shortest one, they're going to look at the other ones first. Thats just the way they are. Now its to the point where schools are getting who they want to get and they're realizing 'maybe this guy is the best for our program.'"
 

Fourcade said he is still committed to Nicholls State but will visit Maryland this week. That visit will be very telling in where he plays college football.
