Liberty HS LB Brett Bafaro (Hillsboro, OR) has flown a bit under the radar, but has quietly picked up three offers over the past couple months. The talented LB will have a busy summer as he plans to camp at a handful of schools, including Boise State. Will Boise State offer?

"As of now, the camps I have listed on my calendar are Boise State, UW, and UO," he said. "I'm going to try to make it down to a couple other camps as well," he added.

"I'd say that OSU, UO, Cal, Boise State, UW, Colorado, and Wyoming are all pretty close to offering," he stated. "Right now, I'd say I'm hearing the most from Washington and Boise State."

"Coach Gregory is recruiting me," said Bafaro. "We haven't really gotten down to the football level, but I think he's a great guy. I could definitely see myself being coached by him. He's just a great person."

"I don't really know too much about Boise State, but I know they're a great team," he said. "I've been watching them for a while on TV and I like their style of play."

The talented LB currently has offers from Utah, Idaho, and Portland State. He says he's looking for a school in a great location with an intense coaching staff.

"I have to love the city. That's probably the most important," he said. "I want to play for a great coaching staff, an intense one. I also want the opportunity to play since no one likes to sit on the bench."

In terms of a timetable, Bafaro says it all depends on how many offers he gets and when he gets them. He's willing to wait for that "right" offer.

"It depends on when I get the offers," said Bafaro. "I'll wait for that right offer to come along. I was thinking I might take a few official visits and then decide. If the offers come later, I'll just decide after my season."

In 2010, the Liberty Falcons finished the season with a 5-5 record. The standout LB says they underachieved in 2010, but return a boatload of starters in 2011. He believes the 2011 team is capable of competing for a State Championship.

"Our starting RB left, but we have a lot of talent coming back," he said. "Some of our guys got tired toward the end of last season and I think that caused us to underachieve a bit. We have a ton of seniors coming back and I expect the leadership to be much better this year. Overall, I think we'll have a team that can compete for a State Title."

What does Bafaro (6'2, 215, 4.6) bring to the gridiron?

"I think I bring a little more athleticism than a normal LB and I'm not scared to hit anyone," he said. "Most schools have told me they really like my tenacity, intensity, and athleticism," he added.

As a junior, Bafaro racked up 80 tackles and 5 sacks for the Falcon defense.
