Jayhawks & Eagles Offer Thorson

Wheaton (Ill.) North quarterback Clayton Thorson added offers from Boston College and Kansas on Wednesday.

The Eagles and Jayhawks join Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, N.C. State and Penn State among others in extending a scholarship to the 6-foot-4, 190-pound Thorson.

Ranked as a four-star prospect and the nation’s No. 10 pro-style passer according to the 247Composite, Thorson is excited about both programs.

“It seems like Charlie Weis from when he was with the Patriots and Notre Dame he knows what he’s talking about, and that’s the type of offense I want to be in,” Thorson said of Kansas. “I definitely think their program is headed in the right direction.”

Thorson thinks the same of Boston College.

“I talked to Coach (Justin) Frye and then the quarterbacks coach and they told me a little about their offense and what they’re trying to do there, and they feel like they’re going to do well in the next few years as well.”

The only junior day Thorson has been able to make thus far is Iowa and he doesn’t have any visits setup for the near future.
