Kent (Wash.) Kentridge tight end Caleb Smith picked up his second offer less than a week after Idaho…
WA Tight End Sees Explosion In Interest
"Coach Gregory is recruiting me from Boise State," he said. "He stopped by my school a couple weeks ago and I've been in contact with him through email. I don't know him that well yet, but he seems like a strong leader. Obviously, he's a good coach too based on all the winning they do in Boise."
"They win a lot," he said in regards to Boise State. "That's probably what stands out to me most. They also use multiple TE sets, a pro-style offense, and always have players that can play. All they seem to do is win championships. I want to be a part of a winning program like that."
Washington and Washington State have also been showing some interest of late. The talented TE prospect says he thinks Washington State could be the next school to offer. (**And WSU subsequently did offer the next day**)
"For UW, Coach Cox stopped by my school today and I've been talking to Coach Nussmeier for a while," said Smith. "Coach Tormey from WSU stopped by last Friday and they've been showing a lot of interest. Honestly, I think WSU is probably the closest to offering if I had to guess."
Smith will hit the camp circuit in June and July as he plans to attend a handful of camps across the Northwest. He says many schools will make the determination as to whether or not they want to offer based on those camps.
"It's going to be a busy summer," he said. "I plan on camping at Boise State, Utah, Oregon, Oregon State, UW, WSU, and Idaho," he added.
Speaking of Idaho, they became the first school to offer Caleb just last week.
"Last Thursday, I was sitting on my couch watching TV and Coach Akey called me," he said. "He asked me how I was doing and talked about the Idaho program. He offered me and said they like big TEs and how I play. It was a pretty exciting moment."
"He seems like a real high-energy guy," he stated. "I think he has them heading in the right direction."
What is Smith (6'5, 225) looking for in a school?
"I'd say academics come first. You go to college to be a student and then an athlete," he said. "I want to go to a program where I fit in as a TE, early playing time would be nice. A winning program would be nice as well and I'd like to play in a pro-style offense."
