Adolfo Camarillo HS ATH Jake Maulhardt (Camarillo, CA) currently has three offers in-hand with numerous other schools showing strong interest. Boise State offered the talented ATH a few months back and appears to be a strong contender for his services.

"I've got three offers," he said. "Boise State, BYU, and Colorado are the three," he added.

"I'm trying to plan-out my official visits for September," he stated. "Boise State will definitely get one, Colorado maybe, but BYU won't."

"I like the whole college town atmosphere at Boise State," said Maulhardt. "They have no pro team up there and the town is all into football. I'm looking forward to seeing it for myself."

Boise State sees Maulhardt as a hybrid-TE/WR. A guy that can basically be that additional blocker at the line of scrimmage, but also split-out as a receiver.

"Coach Pease is recruiting me," he said. "I'm up for playing anything just to get on the field. They're real open minded with their whole offensive scheme and I like that a lot. It's a wide open offense."

"He knows how to win," he said in regards to Head Coach Chris Petersen. "He's taken a team that no one really knew about and made them national contenders. That's pretty awesome."

So, what will Maulhardt focus on when he starts to take his official visits?

"The town is important to me and not just living on campus, but around town as well," said Maulhardt. "The weight program will be big for me and I also want to play in an offense that throws the ball."

In 2010, the Scorpions finished the season with an 8-4 record. The talented ATH says they want to take it up a notch in 2011 and compete for a CIF Championship.

"We were 8-4 last year and lost in the second round of CIF," he said. "Our team was real young last year. We've got a lot of seniors this year so we should be strong, better than last year."

"I remember telling the paper last year in an interview that I wanted to have over 1,000 yards as a personal goal. My parents didn't like that too much since I sounded arrogant," he said. "I achieved that goal, but I'm not setting any personal goals this year. Honestly, I just want to win."

What does Maulhardt (6'6, 205, 4.63) bring to the gridiron?

"I don't have exceptional speed, but I can move fast," he said. "I catch the ball well in space," he added.

As a junior, he had 94 receptions for 1,191 yards and 7 TDs.

He currently has offers from Boise State, BYU, and Colorado. While USC, UCLA, Washington, San Diego State, Arizona, Arizona State, Washington State, and Penn State have all shown some level of interest.
