Hart High School’s highly touted offensive duo has significant college offers on the table.

Indians junior-to-be quarterback Brady White received an official scholarship offer from San Jose State (11-2 in 2012) this week and Hart junior-to-be wide receiver Trent Irwin has an offer from the University of California, Berkeley (3-9 in 2012).

In White’s sophomore season, he passed for 2,575 yards and 23 touchdowns to seven interceptions. He also completed 67 percent of his passes.

“His arm strength. He can make all the different types of throws, and they see a taller, fluid quarterback there who just makes it look effortless,” said Hart head coach Mike Herrington of what San Jose State sees in the 6-foot-2-inch signal caller.

Herrington said he expects a couple of other schools to offer soon.

White can verbally commit, but can’t sign a letter of intent until December 2014.

The same for Irwin, who will be a three-year varsity starting wide receiver come the 2013 season.

College scouts have been wowed by Irwin since his freshman year and earlier media reports had him receiving his first official offer from Colorado, however it was Cal that jumped on him first.

Irwin was an All-CIF Northern Division wide receiver as a sophomore and is a two-time All-Santa Clarita Valley first-teamer.

“He’s going to get tons of offers,” Herrington said. “People just go nuts over him.”

Herrington added that senior-to-be wide receiver Davis Koppenhaver is receiving a lot of interest, but doesn’t have an offer — yet.

Herrington said with Koppenhaver’s 6-foot-5 frame, he is being looked at as a future tight end and or H-back.

Schools are also looking at the dynamic Connor Wingenroth as an athlete — fitting as he started at quarterback as a sophomore and was stellar as a running back/slot receiver as a junior. He was an All-CIF Northern Division selection last year.

“There’s going to be a team that gets a gem there,” Herrington said. “He’ll make some noise in college.”
