Bates sets visits, gets two new offers

Linebacker Wallace Bates (6-1, 205, 4.57) from Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft has recently picked up two more Pac10 offers as he has narrowed down his top schools list to five.
Bates has already taken one trip to Washington State with Taft teammate and Cougar commit running back Ian Bell (5-10, 190, 4.49).
The Washington Huskies and the Arizona State Sun Devils have recently offered Bates a full scholie.
Oregon State and Hawaii are also hot on Bates.
Bates will visit Washington on January 9th and trip to Arizona State on January 16th.
Oregon State and Hawaii are also interested in tripping Bates but there is nothing set yet.
Bates was a man amongst boys this past season racking up 131 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions in 2003.
Anyone who saw Bates play this past season came away impressed. He has great explosiveness and closing speed. Bates is a lethal hitter and one hit that he made against Birmingham made the highlight reel.
Arizona State and Oregon State have a slight lead for his services.
