Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany safety Quentin Tartabull (6-0, 195), has been keeping in regular contact with a number of schools, and Tartabull is confident his first offer is around the corner.
“It’s getting going and has been a good experience so far,” said Tartabull. “I’ve talked to like 10 schools on a regular basis and am hearing the most from some Pac-12 schools.”
Tartabull said five Pac-12 schools are the most consistent in their contact.
“USC, UCLA, Washington State, Arizona State and Oregon have been talking to me the most,” said Tartabull.
Tartabull spent Sunday at USC for the Trojans’ Junior Day.
“Man, that was an experience,” said Tartabull. “It was mind-blowing. The John McKay Center was amazing and all the coaches were down to earth. USC has always been my dream school too.”
Tartabull is also planning to hit two more schools in the coming weeks for Junior Day.
“I’m going to Arizona State’s Junior Day on March 23rd and then I think I’m doing Illinois’ Junior Day,” said Tartabull.
Tartabull said though, he thinks one Pac-12 school could be closest to offering.
“I talk to UCLA a lot and I think they could be my first offer,” said Tartabull. “Coach (Angus) McClure is who’s recruiting me and I’ve been there and to some practices.”
Tartabull plays linebacker for Alemany but schools see him in the secondary.
“All the schools recruiting me want me as a strong safety,” said Tartabull.
Tartabull will be at the Los Angeles NFTC on March 10th and then in April, will take the ACT for the first time.
He also has a time frame for a decision.
“I’d like to commit before the season starts,” said Tartabull.
Tartabull is the son of former MLB player Danny Tartabull.
