Curious as well......why would he give up a NJCAA scholarship to have to pay OOS tuition at a Cali JC? I could see if he was searching for playing time, but it does not seem like the case.

Something happened. Starters dont transfer out of the blue from strong JC programs. I hope Ventura is not getting a bad apple. I hope I am wrong. The character of an individual is not seen in any stats.

Gehrke is going strictly for exposure.  Ventura was 10-0 regular season, and had Coach of the Year in California Mountain State Conference. Gehrke was awarded Offensive newcomer of the year by Scottsdale, given by the coaches. He has a strong relationship  with all the former players and coaches.  Gehrke wanted to play in California JUCO system after senior year in high school, but Scottsdale Notre Dame Prep, where Gehrke was on the Dean's list and team MVP voted by his teammates,  does not let students graduate early, so Gehrke dual enrolled at SCC, right down the road from Notre Dame Prep,, in order to play spring ball, and enabled him to beat out two D1 bouncebacks, Brock Berglund, who is highly rated on JCfootball, , and Kevin Spain from Hawaii.  Gehrke is an honors student and very active in his church and widely respected of his character by SCC  coaches and current coach at Ventura. They will all concur. SCC offensive coordinator, who recruited him at SCC,  left for D2 job just before the season started and Gehrke lived up to his committment and stayed and played the whole season. Many California JUCO's were after Gehrke after his senior year in high school and SCC Coaches knew he was leaving and even announced at team banquet back in December they were sad he was leaving and wished him well.   Any other posts contrary to these facts are totally unfounded with the Head Coaches Gary Gregory at Notre Dame Prep and Doug Madoski at Scottsdale CC  who will attest Gehrke is one of their favorite and coachable players with a combined 25 years on coaching.

WOW sounds like a great kid.... Good luck.

P.S. My son recieved a half scholarship to Kilgore JC in Texas a NJCAA school while I was based in Tyler TX. Many players off his team went D1 and D1AA. My son has since transfered to a Southern Cal JC because I am from SO CAL, so how does going to Ventura give him more exposure when he was a starter in a very legitamate football program. Does he have family there? I saw Weber State was interested in him, what happened there?

Gehrke wants to play in the Pac 12.   The OC who recruited him  at Weber, Timm Rosenbaugh,  took a  job at UNLV the weekend Jordan was there for his official visit.  Weber still offered him, but Gehrke wants to play at California school like Cal, Stanford, USC or UCLA. Gehrke feels that there is more opportunity to be recruited playing in Cali.  Santa Barbara and Santa Monica were also very high on Gehrke, ever since two years ago, and Gehrke visted both places in January as well as Ventura, and Gehrke liked both facilities, programs, and coaches.  Gehrke's cousin Jay Gehrke, led the nation in saves in baseball  at Pepperdine University a few  years back and is   down the road in Malibu, Jay was a #1 pick by the Royals, and a highly recruited quarterback, including full ride at Stanford.

All you bloggers take a bow . . . Young man wants to play in our CC football system, says a lot about the programs and competition we have up and down the state . . . Liked that mention of baseball, in fact, this week kicks off the D1 baseball season . .
