MISSION VIEJO, Calif. -- It is a tremendous year for quarterbacks in Southern California and there are none better than Mark Sanchez (6-foot-3, 215 pounds) from Mission Viejo. I consider him to be one of the nation's top three signal caller's. He combines excellent size with a great arm and a competitive nature rarely seen in 18-year-olds. Though nations after Mark, and he says he has no favorites, but right now I look at USC, Ohio State, Michigan, Texas, Notre Dame, Oregon, Stanford and Florida to be leaders.
