Southpaw was main attraction

Southpaw quarterback Craig Rasmussen (6-2, 185, 4.67) from San Diego (Calif.) Hilltop received a lot of attention this past spring.

"We had 26 division one schools come through our school to see Craig in the spring," Hilltop coach Andy Diaz said. "Six of the 26 schools seem to be very interested in him. They are Washington State, Colorado State, UNLV, Fresno State, Oregon, San Diego State. Craig needs to decide which five he will take official visits to in the fall."
