Spokane O-lineman Makes Idaho D1 Circuit
"I went down there (to Boise) two weeks ago," he said. "Honestly, I was quite impressed. I visited the campus before, but now I'm at an age where I can understand everything. I like the whole setup there, the way the campus was centered on a few blocks, and I thought the facilities were nice."
"I spoke to Coach Huff and Coach Strausser while I was down there," he stated. "I asked Coach Strausser what he thought of my highlight video and he said he liked it, thinks I have room for improvement, which is good. Both he and Coach Huff were encouraging me to go to the camp so I can see their coaching style."
"Overall, I liked it a lot," he said in regards to the trip to Boise. "I like how it's a big program, but not a huge school. That's one of the things I'm looking for."
So, will Sonneborn camp at Boise State this summer?
"They're on my list. I'm going to have to decide which camps I want to attend," said Sonneborn. "All of them are right around the same time so I have to pick and choose. I'm thinking about Boise State, Montana, Idaho, Portland State, and UW."
While in Boise, he also got to see the plans for the new football facility that will open in the summer of 2013.
"I liked how they showed me the plans for the new facility," he said. "They're improving and continuing to grow. They're already talking about going from a 35,000 seat stadium to a 50,000 seat stadium."
He also visited the University of Idaho just prior to his trip to Boise State and says he enjoyed the visit to Moscow as well.
"I went to Idaho a couple days before that," he said. "I liked it. I thought they had a nice atmosphere. Coach Akey was a cool guy and I've been following him since he was at Washington State. It's definitely a college town and a nice environment."
Sonneborn and his teammates will start summer workouts in June and he says this year's team is a championship contender.
"My honest opinion is that we can win our league," he said. "I'm trying not to look too far ahead. I want to take it week by week and it starts with winning our league."
"We'll get started in June," said Sonneborn. "We just started a new weight class at our school, so I'm taking part in that four days a week right now. I also work with a personal trainer on agility on my own time."
So, what does Jerred Sonneborn (6'2, 265) bring to the gridiron?
"I definitely bring the work ethic and heart to the team," he said. "I push everyone to their limits," he added.
