I talked with Jensen Beach High School head football coach about Tim Chaffey about his quarteback Alex Ogle. Here is what he had to say.

Q: Why do you think Alex flew under the radar in his recruitment?
A: "It's been one of the most baffling things I've seen in the 17 years I've been coaching. I think it's because of the area we're in here in Florida. We're in a little area called the Treasure Coast. We have a few schools that are pretty well known, but the rest of the schools are all around the same. We've had a few teams that have done well that have come out of this area, but get kind of overlooked by recruiters sometimes. The guys that do their homework know that they can come in his area and find some very good football players."

Q: How much talent does Alex Ogle have in you opinion?
A: "I'm going to tell you right now, and I'm not just saying it because he's my quarterback, but Alex is the best quarterback on the Treasure Coast if not the East Coast of Florida. He might be one of the top two quarterbacks in the state of Florida. He's done everything that you can ask for in a quarterback. He put the team on his back and we had a successful season because of him. He went to all the top camps and performed well in the preseason. He was the MVP of the Miami camp. He was on the list to make the Elite 11 that they have on ESPN. He was one of the last cuts they made on that list. He's broken every school record, every county record."

Q: Do you think is a good fit for what they intend to do on offense at Boise State?
A: "In Boise, they get those kids that maybe the so-called larger Division One schools are overlooking. Those kids play with a chip on their shoulder. He'd do very very well in their style of offense and he'd be perfect for it. He's 6-foot-3. He's probably going to end up 6-foot-4 or 6-foot-5 before he leaves school because his dad is a big old offensive lineman that played Clemson. He's still growing."
